Hi friends! Happy Thursday to you all! I hope you’re having a wonderful week and your weather is starting to cool down a bit. One thing that attracted us to Colorado 5-1/2 years ago is the gorgeous weather year-round! We don’t have much humidity here, so the summers and winters are bearable – typically not too hot and not too cold – but I have to say that we felt the heat slightly more this summer. Our new challenge is live this morning over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #157 – Anything Goes! I’m sharing another Mother’s Day card that turned out so pretty in a nontraditional orangey-pink with black color palette. I think I’ve mention previously that if there was ever an award for ‘most Mother’s Day cards shared on a blog’, I’d probably be a recipient! I am commissioned every year to make Mother’s Day cards, so I always have an abundance to share!
I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from American Crafts White cardstock, along with layering panels from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Black Licorice cardstock, Stampin’ Up Sweater Weather DSP, and Crafter’s Companion Verity Rose 6×6 paper pad, which I layered together and adhered to the card base. I stamped the tulip from the Concord & 9th Painted Tulip stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black, Morocco and Bamboo Leaves inks on a white cardstock panel, and adhered the panel to the card front. I heat embossed the front sentiment in Hero Arts white embossing powder on black cardstock, trimmed it, and adhered it to the front.
I cut the inside panel from American Crafts White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of the Verity Rose patterned paper used on the front and a narrow strip of CutCardStock Pop-Tone Black Licorice cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired By Stamping You Are stamp set in black ink and layered the panel on black cardstock.
And one more peek… I’m very pleased with this design! This was one that I created in multiples because it was so easy. And it was well received – they were purchased rather quickly, lol!
