Global Stamping Friends May Blog Hop A Mother's Love


It's time to hop along with the Global Stamping Friends May Blog Hop as we celebrate A Mother's Love. With Mother's Day just a few days away, it seems like the perfect time to showcase cards for the wonderful women in our lives. Our Design Team members will be sharing their projects and ideas to help inspire you to create your own beautiful projects. 
One of my favorite things about a new catalog, is the opportunity to combine new products with old favorites. One of my favorite new bundles is the Happiness Abounds Bundle with its beautiful floral images and wonderful sentiments and the coordinating dies to make life easier. I combined the line images from this stamp set with the background image from the Artistically Inked stamp set, which is one of my favorites, to create color variation and texture for the images. The beautiful sentiment is from the Celebrating You stamp set, which is a wonderful sentiment collection perfect for a variety of occasions. As you know, I love adding gold details to my card designs, and for this beautiful card I added Gold embossing for he images and Gold Foil for the frame of the circle die cut opening on the front of the card.

This pretty card design is all about textures and layers. I created a window in the center of the card front using the Stylish Shapes Dies and framed it with Gold foil for a touch of elegance. The background was embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and I love the vintage look it gives to the card. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image with Gold embossing powder onto the front of the card base so that it was at the top of the window opening. To create the flowers, I stamped the background image from the Artistically Inked stamp set with Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia and Blushing Bride Classic inks onto a piece of Basic White cardstock and then heat embossed the flower images with Gold embossing powder. I repeated the same process for the leaves using Granny Apple Green, Parakeet Party and Soft Sea Foam inks and heat embossed the leaves with Gold embossing. I die cut the images using the coordinating dies and then arranged them around the bottom half of the circle. I attached the flowers with Stampin' Dimensionals and adhered the leaves with Stampin' Seal Adhesive. To complete the design, I added several of the Brushed Brass Butterflies, one of my favorite embellishments.
