Yes, another Mother’s Day card! Inspired from Pinterest as usual.. This card could easily be changed to any occasion. I used the Jar of Flowers stamp set for the jar & flowers. I coloured the flowers using Stampin’ Blends. I added a little of Wink of Stella for good measure to add a subtle bling to the card. The background paper is a retired DSP. I die cut the Basic White card using the Stitched Rectangles dies (151820). I used the Banners Pick a Punch (153608) to create the banner for the sentiment. The bow was created using the retired Mossy Meadow 3/16″ braided linen trim (154298).
Here is a different take using the same template from a few weeks ago. I wrapped a piece of 1.5in Metallic Mesh Ribbon (153550) which is NOT retiring. OMG, I love this ribbon! I tied it around a piece of retired Delightful Daisy DSP. The sentiment is from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set (152539) inked up with retired Tranquil Tide (why did that colour have to retire!) then die cut using the Stitched so Sweetly dies (151690). I adhered it to a a piece of Tranquil Tide cardstock die cut with the Stitched Rectangles dies (151820). I adhered it to the DSP by popping it up with dimensionals. For some extra bling, I added a few Iridescent Pearls (153549).
To refresh your memory, here is the same card using a different colour scheme.
For teacher gifts this year, I decided to make a stack of cards along with some other goodies. This card was CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) from Rhonda Wade. The stamp set Ridiculously Awesome (152512) is the stamp set Rhonda designed for her $1,000,000 sales.
I started with a Basic Grey cardstock. I layered it with Whisper White that was die cut using the Stitched Rectangles dies (151820). The next layer is from the Peony Garden DSP (152483) cut 4 ¾ x 3 ½. I stamped the sentiment in Smokey Slate onto Whisper White cardstock then die cut it using the Stitched Shapes (152323). I wrapped a piece of Shimmer Ribbon (152463) around the layered white & Peony DSP & tied it with a simple knot. Then I popped it up with dimensionals. I popped the circle sentiment up with dimensionals as well. The coloured vellum is retired but is currently on the clearance rack (149101 for $4.40) that I punched with the retired Leaf punch. I added a subtle bling by using the Wink of Stella on the FAITH letters. For a little extra something, I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems (152464).
I started using Smokey Slate as the card base. I layered it with a peek of Whisper White behind Night of Navy. Feels Like Frost DSP (150444) was die cut using the Stitched Rectangles (151820) & layered with more Whisper White cardstock. A thin strip (1 x 5) of Smokey Slate was stamped with a stamp from the retired Happy Scenes in Smokey Slate ink. Then, popped up using dimensionals. I added a little bling using the trusty old faithful Basic Rhinestones (1442200.
The Whale of a Time Suite is so fun to work with! This time I added in the amazing Seabed EF.
I stamped the whale in Pretty Peacock using the Whale Done stamp set (152470) then punched it out using the coordinating Whale Builder punch (152699). The sentiment was inked in Granny Apple Green from the Whale Done stamp set then die cut using the Stitched Rectangle dies (151820) & framed with Granny Apple Green cardstock. The whale was attached using dimensionals. The sentiment was adhered to Whale of a Time DSP die cut using the Stitched Rectagle dies then framed with more Granny Apple Green cardstock. The background Pretty Peacock cardstock was embossed using the Seabed 3D EF (152700). I added a subtle bling by using a few of the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets (147801). The envelope was dressed up by inking up a stamp from the Whale Done stamp set in Granny Apple Green.
