VIDEO TUTORIAL

I am explaining everything in detail on my video, you can watch it below or on my Youtube channel:

CARD DETAILS

I am using a unique Brush Art Floral stamp set that creates a faux painted look. There are quite a few floral and leaf images in there all designed with that faux painted look in mind. All you need to do is ink it up and stamp. Simple as that.

I chose to use tulips for my cards today as these are beautiful Spring flowers. To make them a bit more unique I used several colors of ink to stamp each and created highlights and shadows on my stamped images. If you look closely you can see that flowers are darker at the base and lighter at the tips of the petals. All of the colors I used are listed at the end of this post.

For my sentiment I used Wild Hibiscus stamp set and heat embossed Best Mom in the World using Brass embossing powder from Hero Arts. My stamped and heat embossed panels were trimmed using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle dies and foam mounted onto light pink A2 top folding card bases.

I embellished my cards using clear sequins and droplets from Pretty Pink Posh.

CARD DRIVE

0309_CelebratingParents

Altenew is releasing a special collection of 3 new stamp sets (Best Dad, Best Mom and Penned Rose) which would be perfect for creating Mother’s Day and Father’s Day cards. These stamp sets were designed especially for the Celebrating Parents Card Drive and 20% of the profits earned by Father’s Day will be donated. Our goal is to send cards for the elderly that live in nursing homes or shelters to let them know they’re not forgotten.

Feel free to check out the Celebrating Parents Card Drive and join this great cause by sending in cards. Find more details about the Celebrating Parents Card Drive HERE.
