WWC268 – Dawn\’s Challenge: All About Occasions

Hello and Welcome!  This week I\’ve created an \”occasion\” card for The Watercooler Wednesday challenge where Dawn is this week\’s hostess.  The occasion I\’ve chosen is Mother\’s Day.
Frantic Stamper Basketweave Cover die.
I really enjoyed making this card. I recently ordered this pretty bouquet stamp and thought it would be perfect for my mom.
 
I stamped, Copic colored and die cut the main image.  I wanted a white on white background so I die-cut this lovely basket weave panel. The sentiment is heat embossed but I thought it needed a little contrast around the edge so I gently put Versamark Ink around each edge, dipped in gold embossing powder and then heat set.  

Supplies used:
Technique Tuesday Bowl Bouquet stamp and die
Frantic Stamper Basket Weave Cover Die
Neenah cardstock
Paper Source Sentiment
Versamark Ink
Gold and Black embossing powder for the sentiment

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
The Card Concept #133: Hello Spring  I focused on the flowers in a container; the pink, blue and yellow color scheme and the muted white background.  I think my card might be best described as \”Clean and Layered\”. 


The Flower Challenge: Spring/Autumn – I was making my Mother\’s Day card so I went with \”Spring\”

Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies – I used the floral die and cover die on this card.

WWC220 – Kath\’s "All About Occasions" Challenge

Happy Wednesday and thank you for stopping by.  It is All About Occasions on the Watercooler Website and Kath is our hostess this week.
Distress Ink:  wilted violet, salty ocean, twisted citron, squeezed lemonade, carved pumpkin

This is the Mother\’s Day card I made for my mother-in-law.  I embossed the  blooms and leaves from Create a Smile\’s In Bloom.  I love these large bold flowers!  Then I used distress ink (wilted violet, salty ocean, twisted citron, squeezed lemonade, carved pumpkin) on an ink blender to color each image.  I buffed and let dry. Finally, I fussy cut each image.  I really need to order the die cuts for this much used set.

Next, I stamped a background using SSS\’s Brush Stroke Messages.  I adhered the flowers and leaves using foam tape for dimension.  Last I popped on the sentiment and added SSS sequins  and Pretty Pink Posh jewels.

WWC219 – Heidi\’s Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

Hello and thank you for stopping by!  This week it is Feminine Anything Goes at Watercooler Wednesday.  Heidi is our hostess this week. Check out our website for more artist cards and details on the challenge.

Card Background using Stamper\'s Anonymous Bricked Layering Stencil.

I LOVE scene cards, so when I saw Hero Arts January 2019 kit I had a ton of card ideas.  This particular card is for Mother\’s Day.  It took a bit of time to make, but I love the end result.

  • I ink-blended the Stamper\’s Anonymous Bricked Layering Stencil for the Background.  
  • The shop scene was stamped on Bristol cardstock and then watercolored with Tombow Dual Tip markers.  Everything was die-cut and then arranged on an A2 card with foam tape.
I am entering this card in:

Mother\’s Day Card

I am very excited about the Mother\’s Day card I created for my Mom.  I used the In Bloom Stamp Set from Create a Smile.

Handmade Mother\'s Day Card

I colored the flowers with Copic Markers and then fussy cut them out.  On card stock I added some paint splatters and then adhered each piece with adhesive foam squares.    Next, I embossed the sentiment (Hero Arts) on a strip of black card stock and then mounted on the card.  I am happy with the card and can\’t wait to share with my mother.

I am entering the card in the Create A Smile Challenge:

Update:
I am very excited that I was chosen as the winner in this Challenge!

Thanks for stopping by.
