Hi there! I am dropping in really quickly to share another mother’s day card. This one is for my friend… my goddaughter’s mom. 😊 Updated to add: Oops… I wasn’t paying attention, but with the word ‘mom’ in the sentiment, this will now go to my mom instead. 😉
First, a stitched rectangle was die cut from Neenah cardstock. Stamped the hummingbird and cherry blossoms with black Memento ink and coloured with Copics. Masking was used to create the floral cluster.
Black heat embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder. Mounted the panel onto a white top folding card base and added a few clear sequins and clear shimmer to the flowers to finish.
Hello there. Spring has sprung here and with Mother’s Day fast approaching, I am sharing a floral Mother’s Day card I made for my MIL. Nothing says spring more than flowers, does it? Ok, maybe summer… 😂 Anyway, here’s my card.
Next stamped the flowers and and banner with Intense Black ink on a scrap of Neenah cardstock. Stamped ‘Mother’s Day’ on the banner. Coloured the images with Copics then fussy cut them out. Stamped ‘happy’ directly on the panel in black. Arranged and adhered the blooms and banner, then mounted the panel with foam adhesive to an A2 Pink Pirouette piece. Attached the pink piece to a white top folding card base and added clear shimmer to the flowers and clear raindrops to finish.
Yesterday was Mother’s Day and I wanted to post this card yesterday after spending a great day with my mother-in-law, but I was tired and still had not finished it.
I die cut a stitched rectangle in the centre of a white A2 size panel. I set the frame aside then took the die cut rectangle piece and stamped the boy image from Better Together with black Memento ink. I masked him off before stamping the two girl images because I wanted them to appear behind him. I removed the mask and proceeded to color them with Copic Sketch markers. I don’t use my Copic markers very often, but I do love seeing all the amazing creations colored with them. All I know is I need a lot of practice in using them.
After I finished coloring, I added shading to the edges of the rectangle with a blending tool and Antique Linen distress ink. I did the camouflage die cut technique for the word “MOM” and stacked it up on 2 cut layers.
I thought the sentiment from Many Mini Messages was perfect for any mom and stamped it in black at the bottom. To put the card together, I attached the frame to a white card base and then inlaid the rectangle piece. The rectangle piece was also stacked up on 2 cut layers as well.
My back is feeling better and I am finally able to play in my crafting closet. And since the main reason I started this blog was to have a place to post my challenge cards, this will be my first challenge post.
First, I created a watercolor background on watercolor paper with distress inks. After I dried it with the heat tool, I used the MISTI to stamp the Sparkle & Shine sentiment in black. I then die cut the Hexastar Cover Plate from white cardstock. I adhered that piece to the watercolor layer before putting it back into the MISTI to stamp over the cover piece. Perfect alignment with the MISTI.
To create the diamond, I made 2 partial die cuts one from white cardstock and one from white glitter paper. I then cut out the diamond shape from these and stacked the outline pieces together to give it dimension. I inlaid the die cut triangle glitter pieces and added some Wink of Stella clear glitter to the sentiment to finish.
It may be non-traditional, but I’m thinking of giving this as a Mother’s Day card.
