Scribble Flowers Slim Line Mother’s Day Card

Scribble Flowers Slim Line Mother’s Day Card

(inside: Thinking of you with love)

This slim line card features the “Slim Square Window Panel” Die from Creek Bank Creations along with dies from the “Spellbinders Classic Squares” (large and small) sets to create the layered squares in the window openings. These were cut from water color paper; I thought the thickness allowed the monotone layers to stand out a bit better.

The layers for the Scribble Flower Die cuts from Creek Bank Creations (no longer available?) were cut from GKD Edible Eggplant card stock and a sheet from the Recollections Purple Passions pack. The die cut highlighting the greeting is the “Antique Leaf Label” from Memory Box.

The greeting is from the “Spring Sentiment Stamp” Set (Creek Bank Creations) and was stamped with Gina K Designs WIld Lilac ink. The inside sentiment is from the “Beautiful Blizzard” set (retired) from Stampin’ Up.

This 8 7/8″ x 3 5/8″ card fits in a regular business size envelope. If you wish to use a We R Memory Keepers envelope punch to create your own envelope, start with a 10 1/8″ square and make initial punch/score at 3 1/4″.

Lucky Me Mother’s Day Card

Lucky Me Mother’s Day Card

(inside: Wishing you the wonderful day you deserve… Happy Mother’s Day!)

This card features a stamp from the “Eight Great Greetings” set from Stampin’ Up (retired) which I stumbled upon while browsing on ebay. This stamp made me chuckle because it is so true! It’s a good thing my mom is awesome – lol!!

After embossing the background panel with the “Floral Border” embossing folder by Darice, I added ink to the raised flowers and dots using two “Fantastix” coloring tools by Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts. For the swirls and leaves, I created a mask and dabbed on the ink with a “Foam Ink Pod” by Darice. (A Fantastix could have been used for the swirls and leaves as well, but I kept getting ink where I didn’t want it and found the mask and pods easier to control for these larger areas. Yeah, several early attempts ended up in the trash…)

The two stamps used for the inside sentiment are unmarked red rubber stamps. I think I purchased them at Michaels years ago, but they are not on their site now.

The inks used were Gina K Designs Peach Bellini, Sweet Corn, and Fresh Asparagus. I also used a Copic Marker (R21) for the flower on the greeting panel. The clear sequins and pierced circle die were unbranded.

Wishing You a Wonderful Day – Speed Stamping!

Wishing You a Wonderful Day – Speed Stamping!

wDSC_3558

This card took just under 5 minutes to complete; sometimes a stamp set is just that good – lol!!  This “Layered Vase” stamp set from Stamplorations has 8 stamps (the large outline image, the greeting, and the 6 solid stamps to add the color), and since the stamps are not meant to layer/line up perfectly, they are really easy to position.  I originally saw (and loved) this set used by Verna; thanks for the inspiration!

Over at the As You See It Challenge, we are encouraged to create a flower themed card in 10 minutes or less (AYSI224 – Fleet Florals).

Challenge #224

After my card design was planned and all my stamps, blocks, inks, and tools were placed on my desk, I started the timer.  All the paper cutting, stamping, spritzing, and assembly took exactly 4 minutes 53 seconds.  (Thanks, Gayle, for introducing me to this challenge site!)

I used my MISTI stamp positioner and Gina K Designs Black Amalgam ink for the outline image and the greeting.   For the layers, I used acrylic blocks and Stampin’ Up Blackberry Bliss and GKD Fresh Asparagus and Powder Blue inks which were all “stamped off” first to keep the colors soft/light.

To finish off the card, I added black speckles with a black Spectrum Aqua marker and my Tim Holtz Marker Spritzer tool.

I originally used acrylic blocks for the layers, but after I finished the first card, I placed the stamps my on MISTI and created a few more cards:

For this one, I added some Nuvo Ebony Black drops that I “flattened” to look like enamel dots (a tip I learned from Julie Ebersole (day 17) in the online Spring Card Camp I – 2020).  I also cut 2 pieces from the stamped panel using dies from the “Basic A2 Panels Nesting Dies” set from Stamplorations and matted them in black.

Here, I used Gina K Designs Sweet Mango, Tangerine Twist, and Tomato Soup Inks for the tulips, Fresh Asparagus and a touch of Sweet Mango for the leaves, and Powder Blue and Soft Stone for the vase (stamped off and layered).

Floral Swing Card

(inside: Happy Mother’s Day)

Recently, I posted a project using the Vase Builder Punch and stamps from the “Varied Vases” set, both from Stampin’ Up.  While I had these on my desk, I thought I’d play around with some paper piecing and the Sizzix “Square Flip-its #2” die set to create a swing card.

The patterned paper is from the DCWV “Posh & Pink” premium stack.  I used the punch for the vase but had to “fussy cut” the blooms.  (This punch coordinates with a few of the stamps in the “Varied Vases” stamp set but not all.)

The inside sentiment is from the “Lovely Little Wreath” set which was part of the Stampin’ Up Paper Pumpkin April 2016 kit.  It (and the flowers on the front) were stamped with GKD Soft Stone ink.

The Flip-its die set cuts (and scores) the base and the decorative panels so this card went together pretty quickly.  I like  way the center panel swings over when the card is opened, but I’m not sure how I feel about the way this card looks when it sits on a table to be displayed.  Hmmm…

Mother’s Day Tulips

Mother’s Day Tulips

This vase of tulips was made with the Vase Builder Punch and stamps from the “Varied Vases” set, both from Stampin’ Up.

The background panel was embossed with the “Spring Tulips” folder by Darice.

I used Scarlet Jewel ink and card stock from Papertrey ink along with Dark Sage ink from Gina K Designs.  Foam dots were used to raise up a few of the blooms and the vase.  The greeting is from the “Dressed to Impress” set from Stampin’ Up.

I didn’t have matching ribbon, so I created a faux ribbon with card stock and the Alison’s Ribbons Die from Cheery Lynn Designs (no longer available?).  Circles were cut with Spellbinders dies from the large and small circles sets.
