Celebrating Mom

Hello All!
With Mother's Day right around the corner, I have a few Mother's Day cards using Technique Junkies products to share with you.  You can shop and get 10% off your TJ order with code TJ10LeeAnn. 

I started with Neenah Solar White Cardstock and a A Colorful Life stencil (Scribble Roses), sponging a background on the right side of the panel.  Next, I stamped the stylized roses from the Technique Junkies' Faith, Hope and Love Stamp Set in a light color (Memento  Desert Sand) and colored with Copics, using the no line coloring technique- my first time doing this. I am pretty happy with how it turned out.  I also stamped the image in Versamark ink and heat embossed it in gold.
I added two different washi tapes to the bottom right corner and then used a scalloped rectangle die to die cut the panel.  I rotated the scalloped frame 180 degrees around the rectangle and the mounted the scalloped frame and the rectangle to the pink card base.
I added a small pink cardstock die cut fishtail banner and then added the fussy cut roses and leaves, using dimensional adhesive.  The sentiment is from the All the Moms Stamp Set.  The sentiment is in a single line, but using masking and my Misti, I split the sentiment up into two lines.  Some Wink of Stella and sequins finish off the card.

The image, Itoh Peonies, was stamped with white ink on navy cs and colored with Prismacolors.  I had a vision in my head of how this would turn out, but it was not happening.  I cut the main peony out of the navy cs and then stamped the image a second time on patterned paper.  I fussy cut out the flowers that frame the main peony and assembled the flowers onto purple cs.  The sentiment is from the All the Moms Stamp Set from Technique Junkies.

For this last card, I used the new All the Moms Stamp Set and  paired it with the Lollipop Flowers stamp to create a 3-D greeting for mom.

Had a heck of a time getting a good picture of this.

I used my MISTI to stamp both images.  This allowed me to ink up the stamps with multiple colors.  Once the images were complete, I fussy cut out the Lollipop Flowers and fussy cut the All the Moms image on two sides.
The images were layered onto a green cardstock background.

 I added a few pearls as flower centers.  This really turned out beautifully, but as I said,  it was a stinker to photograph.  To get the green background right, the main images were too bright.  Get the stamped images right and the green background was too dark.  :(  I tried!!!

That's it for me; thanks for sticking with me on this long post if you are still reading!

  1. Beautiful collection of cards, they are all so perfectly coloured. The partial use of the stencil and that amazing pencil colouring of the purple flower.
