Mom Flowers In Pink & Gold

2018-04-26 09.18.34
I’ve really enjoyed embossing these blossoms in a variety of colors and just had to do gold!  Colored with Zig markers, I fussy-cut them out and set them aside.  On a piece of white card stock, I heat-embossed in gold this very old Italian script stamp I’ve had for years!  Then I brushed Picked Raspberry distress oxide ink over it with a very soft makeup brush.

I gold-embossed MOM onto a scrap of Bristol Smooth and created the ombre effect by placing a little color at the top of the letter, then used my water brush to pull it down.  I fussy-cut the letters so they’d fit better on my card.  The leaves are by Gina Marie Designs and I die-cut them from this interesting gold foil paper I’ve had on hand.

Lastly, I arranged the blossoms and leaves then adhered them with glue and foam tape for dimension.  No promises that this is my last Mom Flowers card!  😉

Simon Says Stamp Mom Flowers!

I can’t get enough of this lovely set, Mom Flowers by Simon Says Stamp!  For this card and the next one, I used pretty shades of gray and yellow Zig markers to color, after heat-embossing the blossoms in silver!  I stamped the background with Stampin Up’s Smoky Slate ink, then stamped MOM on a scrap of Bristol Smooth with Fossilized Amber distress oxide ink.  The sprigs are die-cut from silver foil card stock.

Isn’t the sentiment over the MOM just so pretty and meaningful?!  I also love how the light reflects off the embossed flowers and the foil sprigs!

The card didn’t seem complete until I added drops of yellow Nuvo Drops as accents.  These cards will be going to our local gift shop soon for Mother’s Day!

I had this pretty patterned paper in my stash, and die-cut the ovals with Gina Marie Designs Stitched Oval dies, then attached them to the base card of white upon which I’d randomly stamped the blossoms in Fossilized Amber distress ink.  After embossing MOM onto another scrap of Bristol Smooth card stock, I sponged Fossilized Amber distress oxide ink around the edges and mounted it using a strip of fun foam to lift it up.  I arranged the blossoms and silver sprig atop the MOM strip, and then added Nuvo Drops in silver to accent!

So many beautiful papers just waiting to be used!!  Look at this one with pinks, yellow and brown!  I love the vintage look of it; it reminds me of old-fashioned wallpaper!  My new set isn’t looking so new anymore!  😀

Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers make it so quick and easy to color beautifully!

I had die-cut this ornate frame from brown patterned paper in order to glue it on top of the fun foam one, but the foam frame stretched out a little so the paper one didn’t fit.  Oh well!  It still works!  😀

Stampendous Jumbos Take Three!

How stunning is this?!  It’s the first time I’ve used this gigantic image by Stampendous which I purchased on ebay.  I heat-embossed it in white onto a piece of Bienfang Canvasette Paper Canvas and used Gansai Tambi watercolors to paint it!  I decided to try my hand again at an eclipse card, so using my Etched Alphabet dies by Spellbinders, I cut out the letters MOM and set them aside.

I adhered my panel to a layer of yellow card stock, then to a white card base.  To pop the letters, I die-cut MOM in white fun foam, attached the painted letters to the top of the foam letters, then glued them into place on my card.

Here’s another Stampendous Jumbo (Peony) and I’m not sure I like how dark this card is!  But I also heat-embossed in white onto the Bienfang Canvasette Canvas paper, and used the Gansai Tambi paints.  I spattered black and white watery paint onto the surface then trimmed the panel down to mount to yellow card stock, and a white card base.

I heat-embossed the Altenew Label Love sentiment in black onto a scrap and lifted it with a bit of foam tape.
