It is Mother’s Day in Hungary (also my birthday) today and I am popping in to show you the card I made for mum in the name of my kids.
I used the Lawn Fawn Mom and me stamp and die set, coloured the cute images with Copic markers. I made a card base from Bristol Smooth cardstock and sponged some Distress inks on the front and inside as well. I distressed it with water.
I stamped the Sentiments with black Lawn Fawn ink on the front, and also some flowers, hearts and a butterfly using Distress Oxide inks. I added the cute images, embellished them with glossy accents and a black glaze pen. A few iridescent jewels I adhered to the middle of the flowers.
For the inside I used the new Pivot die to create a fun pop up element. I sponged some Distress inks on the outer rectangles of the pop-up and adhered some more images from the same stamp set. In the middle rectangles I placed pics of my kids in LF Mini Picture frames.
I used LF Cole’s ABC to spell “we love you” on the upper part, and left the bottom empty for my message. When it was done, I used a bit of twine to hold the card closed. It looks like a little present in this way.
It is Monday, the start of a new Inky Paws Challenge. Look at all these pretty colours! Aren’t they gorgeous?
I wanted to use the Beautiful Plumage stamp set for a while now and I thought the colours match perfectly the peacock image. So I coloured one of them with Copic markers (nothing fancy just basic colouring) and used the coordinating die to cut it out.
I sponged some Tumbled Glass distress ink on a top folding, A2 sized white notecard and adhered a strip of gingham patterned paper in soft pastel. Then I die cut the You (MFT die set) once from white and once from glitter cardstock, layered them together. On a thin strip of purple cardstock I white heat embossed a sentiment (Lawn Fawn).
I assembled the card, popped up the peacock with 3D foam squares and embellished it with a white gel pen, a black glaze pen and some glossy accents. I also added some subtle shimmer with a Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen. I think it could be a perfect card for Mother’s Day too.
I started with creating my background on Bristol Smooth paper. I sponged some pink distress inks with a light hand and then used a stencil and heavier hand to add more texture. I distressed it with water, added some pink splatters.
Then I die cut 5 times the Chain circle frame and layered them together using spray adhesive.
I stamped, die cut and coloured with Copics some flowers from the Buildable Bouquet set. I added them inside the frame using 3D foam squares. I covered the petals with a clear shimmer pen, added some glossy accent and a golden glass pearl.
The sentiment I heat embossed in white on a thin strip of black cardstock. A few mini white pearls finished it off.
