I am back again with my last Mother’s Day card this year dedicating this one to ALL supermoms out there. Being a mother is the biggest blessing and the best gift which comes with an emotional extra package (expanding with the years). I am grateful every single day to have my kids and experiencing the unconditional love which I feel for them and they feel for me.
For my card today I used the pretty Peonies stencil from Pretty Pink Posh: on a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock I inkblended Kitch Flamingo Distress Oxide ink for the flowers first. I simply turned the stencil around and masked off the leaves with post it tape to make sure I dont accidentaly go over the unnecessary open areas.
When I was happy with the arrangemet of the flowers I created masks for them from Masking Paper and covered each flower. Now it was time to add leaves with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink. After removing the masks I added some splatters with my Finetec Mica Pearlescent Watercolours, I chose the dark pink and black this time.
While I am waiting for the new release from Pretty Pink Posh to arrive, I was playing with some of my favourites from the previous ones. I have created a cute card with Bunny Friends and Mother’s Day stamp sets.
First I stamped the images and coloured them with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out. I made sure to have some extra little flowers and leaves to make the bouquets even bigger. We can never have too many flowers for Mom, right?
I die cut a piece of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock with the Diagonal Stitched Rectangle die from MFT. It is an old favourite of mine, adds the perfect amount of detail to any project. I adhered it to a top folding A2 sized card which I previously covered with a rainbow striped patterned paper from Doodlebug design.
I assembled my little scene and popped up the bunny with 3D foam squares. I covered the vases with glossy accents, it gives a lovely shiy and raised look, I love it! I also used a black glaze pen on the flower centres.
For the sentiment I chose the Pretty Pink Posh Happy Mother’s Day Script die and die cut the Happy part 3 times from pink cardstock. I layered them on top of each other and adhered it under the bunny.
The rest of the sentiment I white heat embossed on a very thin piece of black cardstock. The sentiment is from the Heffy Doodle Classic sentiments set. I used 3D foam squares under it to stand out more.
Mother’s Day is this Sunday in Hungary and the next one in the US so I thought I would do a mini series with some pretty and fun ideas for the upcoming event. I hope you will enjoy what I prepared for you.
Today I have a pretty slimline card made with one of my favourite stamps from Pretty Pink Posh. I stamped the bouquet from Mother’s Day twice and coloured them with Copic markers. I used a colourless blender to add the striped pattern to the vases, it is so fun! I cut them out with the coordinating die.
Then I die cut te scalloped rectangle from the Slimline Frames and Portholes die from Newton’s Nook Designs using pink cardstock and the frame from the Slimline Frames and Windows die set from yellow cardstock. I used a floral patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs for the inside little squares. To have some instant dimension I tripled up the frame, I love the look!
On the middle little square I white heat embossed the sentiment and popped up the vases with 3D foam squares.
As a finishing touch I used a black glaze pen and a white gel pen on the flowers and a bit of glossy accents in the centres.
I hope you enjoyed today’s slimline inspiration and will pop in again soon!
I am back with the 6th Halloween card in a raw…I hope you enjoy my series and getting in the mood for Halloween.
Today I want to show you cute shaker card made with Pretty Pink Posh stamps and dies.
As always I stamped and coloured the images from the PPP Halloween Pals stamp set first, then cut them out with their coordinating dies. I die cut a stitched rectangle from black cardstock and then I ran it through the Big Shot with PPP Stitched Pieces die. I die cut another stitched rectangle from light green cardstock as the backing for my shaker.
I temporarily placed the black frame on top of the green rectangle to see where I should stamp the sentiment. After stamping it in black, I added a piece of acetate to the back of the frame, and used Darice thin 3D foam strips to create the shaker.
I filled it with a sequin mix from Lucy’s Little Things (that is the only Halloween mix I own, what a shame!) Then I removed carefully the backing of the foam strips and adhered the backing.
I cut a piece of patterned paper from the Doodlebug Booville paper pad to cover an A2 sized card and adhered the shaker to it. I added the cute images around, added some white gel pen details, covered their hats with Tonic Aqua shimmer pen and used glossy accents to emphasize some parts of the images.
I stamped and coloured the kitties from Newton’s Sweetheart set using Copic markers and used the coordinating die to cut it out. I changed the milk to be coffee in the jar 🙂
Then I selected some pretty patterned papers from the Doodlebug Designs Kitten Smitten paper pad. I used the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 3 die to make the tag and stamped a Simon Says Stamp sentiment from the Coffee and Tea stamp set on the top of it. I love how the curves match!
I popped up the kitties with 3D foam tape and added some clear shimmer and glossy accents on the straws, heart, ribbon and their nose. I used Studio Katia Satin rainbow confetti to embellish the background paper, the colours were matching so well!
I die cut an extra piece of the kitty in the basket from white cardstock and adhered it under the coloured one. In this way I get a bit of instant dimension without the bulk of foam tape. I love how the die cuts the little hole at the handle of the basket, such a nice detail!
Then I started to die cut elements for my scene: grass from green cardstock, the frame (Pretty Pink Posh) from yellow and several times from white and the Happy Easter sentiment (Echo Park die) from light blue and grey for the shadow.
I looked for some patterned paper which could match my scene and adhered everything to it. I applied a little Tonic Shimmer Aqua pen on the Easter eggs and some glossy accents for extra shine.
I am back again with inspiration for the just starting Inky Paws Challenge #65. It is a sweet colour combo this time:
My card features the new Sending hugs stamp and die set. I wanted to make a card that can be used for many occasions. I stamped the cute critters on Copic friendly paper and coloured them with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I love how the dies cut the slots around the paws so they can hold anything easily.
I added some silver pearls and glossy accents to the noses and presents they are holding.
A strip of white cardstock I stamped the sentiments in brown and popped up my images under them with 3D foam tape. I gave it a dark brown mat and a scalloped (Pretty Pink Posh die) pink one. Then I adhered it all to a greenish patterned paper from Doodlebug. I was glued on a white card base.
