It’s time for the new SUO121 “Mother’s Day” Challenge and I decided to use a few soon-to-be retired sets to create my card for this challenge.
It has been over twenty years since my mother went to be home with the Lord and even though I miss her greatly, I know one day we will be re-united… as I created this card, I thought of her- she loved flowers and all things feminine! :-)
I decided to also incorporate the Splitcoaststampers’ CC527 Color Challenge (see details here and gallery here).
I hope you will find the time to check out all of the challenge sites and create your own “Mother’s Day” project using Stampin’ Up! only products !!
To create this card:
Print the Postage Due image using My Digital Studio (MDS) (or stamp the image) onto Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto Pink Pirouette cardstock, trim and mount onto Basic Black cardstock.
Stamp the bloom and stem images from Bloom with Hope using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and color using Stampin’ Write markers- Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi and Sahara Sand.
“Fussy-cut” the images and mount onto the Postage Due panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Ink the Dictionary background stamp using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and randomly stamp onto a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock.
Trim the panel, distress the edges with the Distressing Tool and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Wild Wasabi cardstock with the Chevron Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, trim the panel, distress the edges using the Distressing Tool and mount below the Dictionary panel.
Use a Sponge Dauber with Sahara Sand Classic Ink to apply and further distress the edges and embossing.
Add a strip of Basic Black cardstock to cover the seam and mount the entire panel onto the Whisper White card base.
Add ½ of a White Tea Lace Paper Doily to the back of the focal image and adhere the focal image to the card front.
Use the Bow Builder Punch to create the Basic Black paper bow and add to the upper left hand corner.
Stamp the sentiment using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, punch out with the Word Window Punch and mount onto another piece of Basic Black cardstock (also punched with the Word Window Punch).
Add the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®, adhere the Antique Brad to the center of the bow and add the Pearls to finish off the card.
