Hello Everyone! I’m so excited to be participating in this week’s Spring Celebrations Blog Hop! Today, we are celebrating Mother’s Day!
Now, this year it looks like a lot of our Mother’s Days are going to look a bit different than they usually do, so I think that, this year more than ever, it’s important to send our mom’s a LOT of love! So I hope this hop gives you all a little inspiration for what sorta projects to send to the mom(s) in your life!
Be sure to stink around to the end of the post for the Blog Hop order!
For this week, I mashed up some of my favorite crafty companies! For starters, I selected the Bloom set by Kindred Stamps. I love this stamp set for the spring because it has a little bit of everything: a male character, adorable female characters, gorgeously tall flowers, and the most amazing sentiments. I decided to color up the girl holding flowers and 2 tall flower bundles with my Copic Markers. I cut them out with my Brother Scan n Cut, and set them aside.
Next, I took an A2-sized white piece of cardstock. In portrait orientation, I masked off about an inch and a half of the left-side of the card panel. For the exposed part of this panel, I took the Grassy stencil by Lawn Fawn and blended a grassy border on the bottom with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink with my Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Blending Brushes. I then used the other side of the Grassy stencil to mask the grass layer, and took the Cloudy stencil by Lawn Fawn to ink-blend some clouds using Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink.
After I made my grass and clouds, I moved my mask to cover my grass and clouds, and to keep my left-side white portion revealed. I took one of my favorite stencils, the Diamond Flower stencil by The Rabbit Hole Designs, and placed it on top of this layer. I then used my blending brushes to blend Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink. I removed my stencil and mask, and my panel was nearly complete.
I made a sentiment using the buildable sentiments “Just for you” and “Mom”. I stamped it in Catherine Pooler Grape Crush ink onto light pink cardstock, cut it into a strip and framed it with a darker pink cardstock. Now I had the pieces to start putting my card together.
I adhered my flower bunches to look like they were sprouting out of the grass. There was a bit of overlap in the middle, so I put foam tape on the back of my flower-holding girl and adhered her so that she covered the overlap portion of the flowers (I figured this made the flowers look like a larger individual stamp. I adhered my sentiment strip with foam tape, some sequins from a past Kindred Stamps shaker pack, and adhered my finished card onto an A2-sized card base! My card was done!
