Spring Flowers Mother’s Day

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.

 

 

To start, a white stitched rectangle was die cut from Whisper White cardstock.  Stamped the Barnwood Background on the bottom with second generation Smoky Slate dye ink.  I wanted a white wash look, so re-stamped over top with white pigment ink.  This was really easy with the MISTI.  

 

 

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.  

 

 

 

Thank you for visiting,  enjoy your day!

Got Cake?

Hi there.  Having more rainbow fun and dropping in quickly to share (surprise, surprise 😂) another rainbow CAS birthday card.

 

 

To start, stamped the bear and cake with Memento black ink on Neenah cardstock, coloured with Copics then fussy cut out.  Created the plate by die cutting an Oval Shadow from a scrap of white cardstock and outlining the perimeter with a black marker.

 

 

Die cut ‘Celebrate’ three times from more white scraps and stacked them for dimension.  White heat embossed the second part of the sentiment on a black strip.

 

 

Took a white A2 rectangle panel and coloured the bottom with the same markers used to colour the cake.  Adhered the panel to a white top folding cardbase, then assembled the card.  Added clear shimmer to finish.

 

 

 

Spring has just begun, so I hope you’re not sick of seeing rainbow cards from me. 😉   Thank you for visiting.  Have a great day!
