Hi Everyone! Happy Mother’s Day! I wanted to get these cards posted earlier, but I had several that needed to be completed. So I was down to the wire, and just finished taking photographs last night. I stamped all of these cards with WPlus9 Summer Blooms, Whimsy Alpha, and Strictly Sentiments 4 using Altenew Crisp Inks. I have had this floral set for a while, and was so excited to use it for these special cards! What do you think?
Doesn’t this card look so soft and pretty? I used A2 Scalloped Borders One set 7 edge dies from Spellbinders with patterned paper from My Favorite Things and cardstock from Simon Says Stamp.
I think the vellum adds a soft, feminine touch to this card, and I love to make my own background papers with stamps. This card has Lawn Fawn twine with SSS and Crafter’s Companion cardstocks.
Again, I used SSS new glimmery cardstock to layer background panels. HINT: I use VersaFine black ink to stamp sentiments, and then heat emboss in clear. That way you don’t end up with fine black spots from black embossing powder. It’s a much cleaner method!
I created this card for my aunt and I’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to use the WPlus9 Whimsy Alpha stamps and dies. I stamped and die cut the letters. Then I used Wink of Stella for a shimmery accent, and white gel pen to add a stitched effect. Finally I added Glossy Accents for dimension.
So there you have it! Which card did you like best? Have you tried the Summer Blooms set? I love the modern twist on a floral set! Thanks for stopping by on this special day! Love and crafty hugs!
