Hello crafty friends! Mother’s Day is quickly approaching and being a mother of 3 little ones, I have been so busy that I actually hadn’t realized it until this weekend! I made this card for my Mother-in-Law using the More Spring Flowers Stamp and Die Set by Simon Says Stamp. I truly love everything about this set!
To start, I first stamped my images onto Canson Watercolor Paper with VersaMark Embossing Ink and then heat embossed with Super Fine White Embossing Powder by Ranger. Once set, I then colored my flowers using Zig Watercolor brushes and water. I love the softer look from the watercolors paired with the white embossing powder.
I trimmed a piece of white cardstock to 4″x5.25″ and lightly blended some TSOL Sky Blue Ink onto a portion of my panel. My sentiment (which I heat embossed with Super Fine Black Embossing Powder) came from the Momanddad2love Stamp Set from The Stamps of Life. Once I diecut my leaves and flowers, I tried rearranging them onto the white cardstock until I found a layout that I liked and I then either glued or used foam squares to adhere my images to my card base. Lastly, I added some clear droplets by Pretty Pink Posh and mounted my card onto an A2 sized base of deep purple cardstock.
I will be playing along and entering this card into the following challenges:
|Simon Says Monday Challenge: The Great Outdoors|
|Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: A Hint of Pink|
