A Mother’s Day Flower Fest card

As mentioned in my previous post Stampin’ Up! has released the lists of retiring items so I decided to feature a retiring stamp set for this week’s card.  This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color challenge – Basic Gray, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette and Pool Party.   The stamp set I selected for my mother’s day card is Flower Fest.  This stamp set is retiring on May 31st.  So if it’s on your list of must-haves, go to my website to purchase before it’s gone.   I also used the Mixed Bunch stamp set to create a background for the Pink Pirouette layer.  The sentiment is from Delightful Dozen.   For added sparkle I used Dazzling Diamonds on the flowers.  I hope you can see the sparkle when you click on the image to enlarge.

This is a simple card I CASED from the current Idea and Catalog book.  Whenever I need a an idea for a card the Idea and Catalog book is full of projects and ideas.  I can’t wait for the new catalog launching on June 1st.

Clean and Simple

Clean and simple is not easy.  It’s difficult to create a card where you have just enough and not too much.  My card is mostly white except for the butterfly and sentiment.  Dimension is created with layers and texture.  It came together very quickly once I decided to use the Floral Fest stamp set.  I stamped the flower image two times with Whisper White Craft ink and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  The outer layer is punched with the Large Scallop punch and the next flower layer is hand cut with paper snips.  LOVE the Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  It adds so much without being too glitzy.  Click the image to enlarge and see the Iridescent Ice sparkle.  Here’s a sneak peak of one of the new In Colors Island Indigo.  The butterfly and sentiment are stamped in this new In Color.  The punch used for the sentiment is the Decorative Label punch.  Click here to see how to punch.

Floral Fest Birdhouse

I recently received the Flower Fest stamp set and I was so excited to get creative with it.  I was looking for inspiration for color and PPA had one of my favorite color combos – Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait.  These colors together are great together for summer projects.  I put together this project for Hand Stamped Sentiments Anything Goes Challenge.  The box and Cardinal are from a template I created then stamped the floral and leaf images with Versamark and matching classic ink as the card stock and heat embossed with iridescent powder for that shimmery look.  I also added clear rhinestones for additional bling.    Hop on over to HSS get inspired and upload your project.
