Happy Mothers day to my Mum, and all the other mums out there. I’m hoping for a cup of coffee in bed from my daughter! And them going to have to endure seeing my mum and remaining at a distance from her as my parents and auntie are self isolating as they are in the vulnerable group! I am lucky that I at least get to see them in person though as I’ve got some shopping supplies to drop off with them, but will be remaining on the opposite side of the room for our short stay and they will be cleaning up where I have been as soon as I leave.
Here is the bright and cheery card I have made for my Mum which will hopefully help bring some sunshine into her day.
I went very zingy and rainbow!
I used a stencil I got with an Indigo Blu magazine kit and added ink through it before then adding glossy texture paste through the stencil and letting it dry.
I then created the focal points with more inking and some stamps. The butterfly is a Visible Image stamp.
I also created some mats to the images using white card and the one for the main background I did blending round the outside to match the main focal images.
I stuck them all together using foam tape to raise the focal image.
I then used some sequins so embellish.
I decided to decorate the envelope too using the stamp platform to stamp and add different colours.
Love how this came out, hope Mum does too!
Now happy mothers day to all who celebrate and love to all those for whom today might be a difficult day!
A few weeks ago I experimented with the new ranger alcohol lift ink and I made a panel with the Visible Image guitarist stamp and some of the star stamps.
Well I’ve finished the card off now!
I ended up embossing in black the stamped image over the lift ink to make him clearer but I absolutely adore the stars and the stamped off version of those stars on the right hand side. This ink is so clever!
I promised to share the cards I made for the birthday girl and her twin brother once they had been handed over… And so here they are.
Hannah loves dancing and so I thought this Visible Image stamp, with the little dancing people from a Creative Stamping magazine set worked well with lots of layered Distress Oxides worked well for a funky card.
I also added some splashes of shimmer on the background but that’s not visible on the photo.
There is also plenty of shine as I stamped the main image in versafine and then clear heat embossed it.
Matthew’s card has a similar vibe… albeit smaller!
The skater image is a Gummiapan stamp and the tyre tracks on the background are from a Creative Stamping magazine set. Again I heat embossed the image and then went to town on the distress oxides choosing blues and black soot for the colour scheme.
I decided to give the impression of a ramp for the skater using the sentiment stamp.
Even though this is only a 4×4 card it has plenty of impact with the graphic image and the layered oxides.
And so whilst I have a house full of girls (who are incredibly noisy!) it’s now time for me to put my feet up and relax as I’ve fed them and done the whole cake thing! Wonder if any of us get any sleep tonight.
A painty postcard to share today. I created the background using paints and a gelli plate. I wasn’t really thinking about the final finish, more just layering up some colours lightly. Once I had the background done I heat embossed the Visible image stamp onto the card and then chose the you rock sentiment.
Next I added some stars using distress oxides to stamp them and on a few I also added clear embossing too.
I then doodles the border and added it to the Lemon Lime twist cardstock.
