Sandi MacIver – Stampin With Sandi – Colorful Seasons for Mother’s Day
HI stampers, my share today is created with the NEW Stampin Up Colorful Seasons for Mother’s Day, and for a new feature I’m starting here:
Case the Caddy!
There are so many great projects in the Stampin’ Up! Catalogues, why not use them as a source of inspiration!
Sneak Peek! – Colorful Seasons is a stamp set/bundle from the new catalogue, pages 146 and 147. The suite includes dies, ribbon, glitter enamel dots, amazing designer paper and four great card ideas. It’s part of our Demonstrator pre-order.
I used the card in the bottom left corner for my inspiration today!
Sandi’s Tips & Tricks for the Colorful Season’s Mother’s Day Card:
- After studying the card I wanted to case, I decided to use the Designer paper as an accent and not the main background as I wanted to watercolour the background.
- I used Berry Burst and Pink Pirouette on Watercolour paper for the background wash.
- The branch is die cut from Crumb Cake card stock.
- I used second generation stamping for the flowers in Berry Burst and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.
- Once I had the whole card together, I splattered it with watered down Berry Burst.
- Sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
- I sliced a strip of the Color Theory Designer Series Paper to highlight my sentiment
Colorful Seasons for Mother’s Day Card #1
- I added some Gold Metallic Thread behind the branch and flowers.
- and check out the new Glitter Enamel Dots, they rock!…
Colorful Seasons for Mother’s Day Card #2
- I decided to try another one, this time on a Berry Burst card base that was embossed with the Petal Burst embossing folder.
- and while the stamps are all inked up, why not stamp the envelope to add a little preview of what’s inside. (I splatted it too).
I have another card to share with you tomorrow along with a short video on how I created it.
