Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I made a Mother’s Day card with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Bloom and Grow photopolymer stamp set and Budding Blooms dies. I also use the Playful Alphabet dies to make a gold foil MOM for the top of the card – definitely a Mother’s Day card! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
We have a color challenge this week and here is the pretty color palette we are using – I used all the colors for today’s card:
I stamped a Fine Art Floral designer series paper with a Pool Party spray of the floral cluster stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Bloom and Grow stamp set and embossed it with the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder. I adhered it to a Pool Party mat and then popped it to the front of a Petal Pink card base. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on a Petal Pink panel and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder. I heat set the embossing powder until shiny and cut out the label with the Stitched So Sweetly die. I stamped the floral cluster stamp across the label in Petal Pink and wiped the embossed lettering and adhered it to the card front.
I cut out the letters for ‘MOM’ using the Playful Alphabet dies and Gold Foil and adhered the letters to the card front over the label with dimensionals. I stamped the floral spray from the Stampin’ Up! Bloom and Grow stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black in on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die from the Budding Blooms dies. I also stamped two leaf sprigs and a berry and leaf sprig in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I colored all the die cut florals with Mossy Meadow for the leaves, Poppy Parade for the berries and I colored the flowers in Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight and Petal Pink.
I cut a length of Petal Pink striped organdy ribbon in half and made a knot in the middle. I also tied a knot in Pool Party and White ribbon and adhered them to the card front with glue dots. I adhered the leaf clusters and leaf and berry cluster to the card front with glue dots and popped the floral spray on top with dimensionals. I was careful to avoid the ribbons so that I would get good adhesion with the dimensionals. I finished the flowers with clear Wink of Stella to add some sparkle and added some gold glitter enamel dots.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiments from the Timeless Tulips photopolymer stamps in Pool Party on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral spray from the Stampin’ Up! Bloom and Grow stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink at the top of the panel and colored it the same as the one on the card front. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The pretty flowers in the Stampin’ Up! Bloom and Grow stamp set are perfect for Mother’s Day and the sentiments in this stamp set and the Timeless Tulips stamp set are perfect for celebrating Mom with the love and appreciation she deserves on her special day!
