Happy Sunday!! I thought I would use my Sunday posts to showcase my projects I make for the current season or any upcoming holidays, hopefully I can inspire you by using some of the current seasonal products in the currents catalogues.
So as next Sunday is Mother’s Day I broke out my Mum’s Love Stamp Set from the Spring and Summer Catalogue and made a couple of cards using the same stamp set and techniques just in different colours.
I took a piece of Marina Mist A4 Cardstock and cut it at 5 7/8 inches (14.8cm) and scored it at 4 1/8 inches (10.5cm). Then I took a piece of Wisteria Wonder A4 Cardstock and cut it at 4 1/8 inches (10.5cm) and scored it at 5 7/8 inches (14.8cm) for my card bases. I then took two pieces of A4 Vellum measuring 5 3/8 inches (13.4cm) x 3 5/8 inches (8.8cm) and with the Something Lacy background stamp and Versamark Ink I stamped both pieces. I heat embossed this using my heat tool and Stampin Up White Embossing powder. I adhered these pieces to my card bases.
I took two more pieces of Marina Mist and Wisteria Wonder cardstock measuring 4 3/8 inches (10.9cm) x 2 3/8 inches (5.8cm) and two pieces of Whisper White cardstock a 1/4 inch smaller on all sides. On my coloured cardstock pieces I stamped some of the flower images using coordinating Marina Mist Classic Ink and Wisteria Wonder Classic Ink. On the whisper white piece I stamped some more images and the main sentiment from the Mum’s Love stamp set. I popped all these together and on to my card base with Stampin Dimensionals and on to my card fronts.
On the Wisteria Wonder card as I had positioned my sentiment piece up to the top left corner I felt the bottom right corner needed something so I punched 3 flowers with the four petal flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accent punch pack, sponged the edges and added some Basic Pearl Jewels to the centres and popped these on to my card. I finished both cards off with some basic pearl jewels.
For the inside I popped a piece of whisper white cardstock measuring 5 5/8 inches (13.9cm) x 3 7/8 inches (9.3cm) in and stamped the remaining half of my sentiment and some of the coordinating images in the matching inks.
So two lovely Mother’s Day cards for all the lovely mothers out there!!
