Soft Swirls Mother's Day Card


I made this pretty card using my Stampin' Up! Soft Swirls stamp and the emboss resist technique. I really like how it turned out. Emboss resist is one of my favorite techniques and I love the colors. Here's how to make it:

First cut a 6" x 9 1/2" piece of dark purple card stock and fold it in half for the base, a 4 1/2" x 5 3/4" piece of turquoise for the middle layer and a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece for the front layer.

Then heat emboss the background on white card stock using Versamark ink and white embossing powder. When cool sponge Stampin' Up! Elegant Eggplant and Tempting Turquoise ink over the embossing. The embossing resists ink so it's easily removed by wiping over it with a lightly water spritzed soft cloth or paper towel. Next attach the background to the middle layer and the ribbon around both layers. Then cut out the sentiment with a Spellbinders Labels Four Die, sponge it's edges and stamp the sentiment with Elegant Eggplant ink and attach it to the front layer with mini pop dots. Next cut out the butterfly with a Stampin' Up! Butterfly Thinlits die, attach it to the front layer with a mini pop dot, attach the middle layer to the base and enjoy!

Please let me know if you have any questions, I'm always happy to help. I always appreciate any comments/suggestions that you'd like to share. Thank you for stopping by, have a great day!

Stippled Rose Mother's Day Card


I made this beautiful Mother's Day card using my Stampin' Up! Stippled Rose stamp and the shaving cream technique. I love how it turned out. The roses are gorgeous and the background turned out great. Here's how to make it:

First cut a 6" x 9 1/2" piece of dark purple card stock and fold it in half for the base, a 4 1/2" x 5 3/4" piece of light purple for the middle layer, a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of white for the front layer, a 3" x 3 1/2" piece of dark purple for the rose's background and a 2 7/8" x 3 3/8" piece of white for the roses.

Then create the background with the shaving cream technique with the following supplies: Stampin' Up! Elegant Eggplant and Tempting Turquoise re-inkers, shaving cream, a wooden stick, a container, and paper towels . Click here for an awesome tutorial. While the background's drying stamp the roses in Stazon Jet Black ink, watercolor them with either an aqua painter or blender pen and Stampin' Up! Elegant Eggplant and Garden Green Classic Stampin' Pads then attach them to their background. Then cut out the sentiment with a Spellbinders Labels One Die, sponge the edges and stamp the sentiment with Elegant Eggplant ink. Next attach the shaving cream background to the middle layer, the ribbon around both layers, and the roses to the background. Then attach the sentiment with mini pop dots and the middle layer to the base and enjoy!

Here's another card that I made in pink with the following inks: Stampin' Up! Pink Pirouette and Melon Mambo re-inkers for the background and Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, and Garden Green Classic Stampin' Pads for the roses.
