CARD DETAILS

I started to work on my card by dry embossing the stencil into a panel of Fog cardstock using my die cutting machine and embossing sandwich. Watch THIS video tutorial for the how-to.

Next, I ink blended white pigment ink over the design, I used a light hand and applied a bit of ink onto the panel. Once the white ink was applied I used colored ink and added color to this design. I used Lemon Zing and Sunshine for the yellow flower, Jellybean and Green Apple for the leaves and Hollyhock for the pink flowers.

I trimmed my panel to 3 3/4 x 5″ and foam mounted onto A2 white card base. Next, I stamped a sentiment in black ink from the new A Moma’s Love stamp set and cut it out using a coordinating die. I also die-cut additional layers from plain white cardstock, stacked them together using glue and used to create dimension for this sentiment.

I adhered the sentiment in the center of the panel. Next, I added splatter using Hero Arts white shimmer spray and embellished the card using sequins and Nuvo Drops in Ivory Seashell.

    1. What a pretty card with soft colors…a perfect Mother’s Day card.

    1. What a beautiful title for a beautiful release. So many wonderful products and artists for us to follow. As an Australian I especially love the “Mum” die. A lot of the cards I used to make for my Mum, before she passed, had the top of the “O” cut out of them Thank you to Simon for the release and to you for the inspiration

      1. I really like the dry embossing technique you used. I need to give that a try!

    1. I’m not usually one for pastels, but it looks clean design wise. Well done.

    1. Beautiful cards. I love the design and the colors you used.

    1. This card is gorgeous. I need to try this technique with some of my stencils – it makes such an impact.

    1. Such a lovely card! I don’t own many stencils, but I think this one will have to join my craft collection. I’ll also have to try the dry embossing technique because the added dimension adds so much interest.

    1. Beautiful card! I love the technique of using white ink on a Fog background!

    1. Gorgeous card. Love the soft tones. I really MUST use my stencils to emboss!

    1. I love how you dried embossed and then coloured the stencil! What a fabulous look! Going to be doing this on my next card for sure! This is stunning!

    1. This card is fantastic, love the dry embarrassed look. The placement of sequins and nuvo drops make it look elegant.

    1. I’m just starting to get into ink blending with stencils. Something about the soft press appeals to me. Lovely card

    1. Love this stencil too. My favorite was the one you did with the texture paste. Was wondering what part of Az do you live in? I am in Prescott Valley, AZ (in the mountains). Thanks for the ideas (also appreciate that you added what you thought was a failure – it ALL helps us learn).

    1. Lovely card, and it gives the appearance of texture paste! Very soft and pretty. Thank you

    1. Love the pastel colors of this card – soft & feminine! Thanks for sharing your creativity!

    1. Beautiful card. Love the coloring and also the embellishments. I must try adding more sequins and gems to my cards like that. Very effective. TFS!
