Simple DIY Mother’s Day Card – No stamping!

Hi all! Today I’ve created a simple Mother’s Day card that doesn’t include any stamping. :)

The greeting was printed in a very light gray on white cardstock. I used the Melany Lane font.  Do you see the words? They are very light so that they don’t show after writing on top.

In the video below, I show two options for tracing the words. You could use a pen that allows thicks and thins, like the Pentel Fude Touch Sign Pen that I used, or you can use a regular marker and create a uniform line.

The banners are created by folding washi tape over string and cutting the bottom edges. Super simple and easy. :)

I hope you enjoy today’s video! This card idea could be used for lots of other occasions, like birthday cards, baby cards, congratulations cards, and party invitations.

Rainbow Strokes With Flowers – Make a Card Monday #276

Happy Monday, all!

Today I did something a bit different and asked you all on Facebook to choose what stamps I used in today’s video. Those who voted had to choose between the following two sets of stamps…

The two Paper Smooches stamp sets received about 75% of the votes! So that’s what I created with.

I stamped the Positive Strokes Two stamp set in a rainbow of colors (check the supply section below for exact color names), and then white heat embossed the cheerful flowers from the Twiggy Florets stamp set.

To add shine, I used the Tsukineko Irresistables Shimmer Pick Embellisher on the flowers…

The photo above was taken before it dried. Once dry, the shine is actually much more flat. I just couldn’t resist showing it like this, though. It looks so cool!

Anyhow, enjoy today’s video. :)

Masked Flower Wreath – Make a Card Monday #275

Hi all!

So sorry this post is going up late. I just can’t seem to catch up! Do guys ever have weeks like that? :)

Today’s card features the Flower Garden stamp set from Hero Arts, the Thanks For Being You stamp from Hero Arts, and yummy pigment ink colors from Avery Elle.

I created the wreath shape by die cutting masking paper with a circle die and then placing the masking paper circle window around the stamped greeting. Then I went to town stamping all the flowers and leave from the Flower Garden stamp set.

Such a simple concept for a card, but also really pretty. :)
