Happy Mother’s Day

5/26/20 Honorable Mention at CASology!

Hi everyone! It’s Fri-YAY – hope you have a wonderful weekend planned and you continue to stay safe and well! I’m playing in The Outlawz Challenges again and have popped in this morning to share a card that I’m entering into the Festive Fridays Challenge where our sponsor this month is Bugaboo Stamps. The themes to choose from are Christmas, Birthday, Mother’s Day and Sympathy, so this Mother’s Day card is perfect for this challenge!

I won a Clearly Besotted gift card several weeks back and purchased several clear stamp sets, and this is one of them. First time using it and I love it! I stamped the image in black and then again in Versamark and then heat embossed in clear – a trick I learned years ago to give virtually any color of heat embossing! I colored the image with Nuvo alcohol markers, stamped the Mother’s Day sentiment and layered the panel on purple cardstock. I finished the front with some Crystal Drops.

I kept the inside simple to go with the CAS design on the front – stamped the sentiment in black ink and layered the panel on the purple cardstock.

One more peek… I absolutely love how this turned out!

Happy mother’s day

Hi everyone! I’m baaaaack! Thanks for hanging with me – this is my last post for tonight but I’ll be back with a couple more tomorrow. I’m so glad that I decided to set time aside these last couple days to create cards for The Outlawz Challenges because I didn’t get a chance to play much at all last month. The card I’m sharing now is for the Color Challenge and our sponsor this month is SheepSki Designs. I chose the gorgeous Wild Roses image from my stash to create a Mother’s Day card.

The colors for the challenge are burgundy, green, yellow, pink, purple and white plus a twist. This is our photo inspiration:

I used all the colors and my twist is CAS (clean and simple). I fussy cut the image and added a few dots of white Crystal Drops for a little texture. I stamped the sentiment in black ink.

I embellished the inside panel with a strip of the burgundy cardstock used to layer the front and inside panels, and then stamped the sentiment in black ink. The stamp set is from The Project Bin and contains both fun and serious sentiments.

And one more look… all I can say is love, love, love! Beautiful image and fun challenge!

Happy Mother’s Day

** 3/24/17 Top 5 at QKR Stampede! **

Hi everyone! Happy St. Patty’s Day! Hope you are wearing green so you don’t get pinched, lol! Today is my post day on the Dare 2B Artzy blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project featuring two gorgeous papers from the In Bloom Collection Paper Pack, Flowers for Mom stamp set and Totally Black ink.

I used a curved scallop edge die to cut the front flap a little shorter, then added a piece of Blooms paper layered on black cardstock. For the bottom portion under the flap I used a piece of Fields in Bloom paper layered on black cardstock, along with the striped strip from the top of the Blooms paper and a couple very narrow strips of black cardstock.

2017_02250006a

When planning my design, I made sure there was a green flower in the center to coordinate with the card base. Then I cut a green flower out of another section of leftover Blooms paper, adhered it to plain white cardstock, and trimmed it leaving a small margin of white around the outside of the flower which I colored with a Memento Tuxedo Black marker.

2017_02250007a

I adhered some loops of natural bamboo hemp cord to the under side of the extra flower and then affixed it with 3-D foam pads to the green flower in the center of the card flap. I added flat-back pearls in various colors to the flowers and the strip across the bottom.

I stamped the Mother’s Day sentiment in Totally Black ink on a white panel butted up to the Fields in Bloom paper.
