A Mothers Bouquet

Hello Again,

I have been very busy stamping with 'Indescribable Gift' set by Stampin' Up! that is also the same set from my last post. My last post was monochromatic and very minimal, which in own right is absolutely beautiful. In contrast, the card in this post is full of colors, layers, and texture! The inspiration came from the Hand Stamped Sentiment Challenge (HSSCC209).

Entering Challenge:
Hand Stamped Sentiments:
Here is my card! I enjoyed making it and I must say it is not how I originally thought it would turn out. I happen to like the final result and I hope you do too.

Color, texture, and layers create a wonderful
Mothers Day card.
Size: A2- 4.25" x 5.5"
The flowers, leaves, and vase are consistant with
the challenge color palette.
So this is how I did it.
  1. Cut card base and kraft sheet to A2 size. Adhered kraft sheet to card base.
  2. Inked up my embossing folder then dry embossed to create the mosaic texture with ink inlay. Rounded two of the corners and adhered to the card.
  3. Die cut the vase then dry embossed it with this embossing folder.
  4. Stamped sentiment (retired SU) then cut it into a banner shape.
  5. Stamped the flowers using clear embossing powder and VersaMark Ink then heat set it allowing the brown of the kraft paper to show through.
  6. Washed the flowers by picking up Memento LUXE ink with my aqua pen then applying it directly to the kraft paper.
  7. The color was applied using Prismacolor pencils matching the challenge colors exactly.
  8. Fussy cut around the flowers and loosely adhered to card.
  9. Adhered the vase using dimensional tape and then sentiment banner underneath.
It seems like it was involved but really it didn't take too long. I think the color combo is suitable for a perfect Mothers Day card. I hope you enjoyed it and don't forget to leave a comment. Thank you so much for stopping by and we will see you soon!!

All the Best,
