Embossed Happy Mother’s Day

Hi friends! Hope you’re having a terrific Tuesday! Is it warming up any at all where you are? Things are status quo here… the hubs and I always ‘do our own thing’ which keeps us sane, lol! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #67 – Anything Goes! I have created several heat embossed commissioned Mother’s Day cards over the past couple years using this Clearly Besotted stamp set (with basically the same design) and each one turns out so beautiful using different colors for the flowers.

I cut a standard A2 top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and layering panels from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and Stampin’ Up So Saffron cardstock. I stamped the image from the Clearly Besotted One In A Million stamp set in black ink, stamped over that in Versamark and heat embossed it with Hero Arts Clear embossing powder. I learned this trick years and years ago to virtually get any color of heat embossing on a project. The only colors of embossing powder I have in my stash anymore are metals and some red I found not too long ago. ;) So I colored the embossed image with alcohol markers and adhered the panel to the yellow cardstock panel and then to the card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Dare 2B Artzy Flowers For Mom stamp set in black ink and added several dots of Nuvo Ivory Seashell Crystal Drops to finish the card front.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock, stamped the sentiment from the same Clearly Besotted stamp set, and layered the panel on the yellow cardstock.

And one more peek… this is such a pretty CAS design that compliments any kind of girly card! And the image is absolutely stunning!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
