Good morning! Welcome to the April Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “For the Ladies/Girls” so I made a Mother’s Day card with the pretty flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Flowing Flowers cling stamp set and the sentiments from the retiring Timeless Tulips photopolymer stamp set! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I embossed a panel of Pale Papaya shimmer vellum with the Pretty Flowers embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Thick Basic White card Base. I applied liquid glue just to the middle section that would be covered by the scalloped rectangle.
I cut a panel of Basic White with the largest scalloped rectangle from the retiring Stitched So Sweetly dies. I stamped the smallest flower cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Flowing Flowers stamp set three times in Pale Papaya in the lower corner of the scalloped rectangle. I stamped the largest flower in Polished Pink on a Basic White panel and fussy cut it out.
I used the new In Color Parakeet Party (available May 3) to stamp the leaves from the medium flower in the Stampin’ Up! Flowing Flowers stamp set twice on Basic White. I fussy cut the leaves and adhered them to the scalloped rectangle. I adhered the fussy cut flower over the leaves with dimensionals and adhered the panel to the card front with liquid glue. I tucked a white crinkle ribbon bow under the flower, adhering it with a glue dot.
I stamped the pretty Mother’s day sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Polished Pink on Basic White and cut it out with the smallest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I adhered it to the card front with glue dots and dimensionals and finished the card front with iridescent rhinestones – the glints of pink and yellow are perfect with this card!
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Polished Pink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the medium flower from the Stampin’ Up! Flowing Flowers stamp set in Pale Papaya in the corner of the panel and adhered the panel to a Pale Papaya mat. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The sentiments from the retiring Timeless Tulips stamp set are so sweet and pretty and the retiring Stitched So Sweetly dies are pretty as well. I have used them a lot, so check them out before they’re gone for good!
