Happy Mother’s Day Inked Pink

5/6/22 Top 3 Winner at Alphabet Challenge Blog!

Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a terrific Tuesday! Sure is hard to believe that another weekend has passed by and we’re on the downhill slide to the end of April! I’ve popped in this morning to share an awesome Tape Runner DT inspiration project! I’ve gotten a bit of a head-start on this year’s commissioned Mother’s Day cards and this one features an inked background panel with a gorgeous Pinkfresh Studio Hydrangea and Rose floral cluster! And, of course, all panels were adhered with Tape Runner… my favorite adhesive!

As mentioned above, all panels were adhered with Tape Runner. Wet glue was used only for adhering the gemstones, and double-sided adhesive foam circles were used to pop up the focal image. I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from Strathmore watercolor paper and 80# Solar White cardstock, and rounded the bottom right corner of each.

I employed the smooshing technique with Ranger Kitsch Flamingo distress ink and water spritzed from my Ranger Distress Sprayer, using my Milwaukee heat tool to dry the panel between smooshes, and then adhered the panel to the card base. I cut narrow strips from Royal Sundance Linen Emerald cardstock and Tattered Angels White Corrugated Paper, layered them together, and adhered them to the card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts Year Round Messages stamp set in Memento Northern Pine ink in the bottom right corner. I applied the Pinkfresh Studio Hydrangea and Rose Washi Tape to 110# Solar White cardstock, cut the flowers with the Pinkfresh Studio Hydrangea and Rose die, and adhered the largest floral cluster to the card front. The finishing touch was adding several Taylored Expressions Gold Drip Drops.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a leftover strip of the inked background trimmed from the front panel and a narrow strip of Royal Sundance Linen Emerald cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Concord and 9th Painted Tulip stamp set in green ink, adhered a Pinkfresh Studio die cut floral in the lower left corner, and layered the panel on green linen cardstock.

And one more peek… totally loving how this turned out! These Pinkfresh Studio florals make the most gorgeous cards, and it always helps to have amazing adhesive to hold everything together!

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
