My first card uses the gorgeous new Wreath of Roses Stamps and the Wreath of Roses Die.
I just love black and white with bright bright colors so I couldn't wait to combine the two on this card. I started by creating a striped card base using black cardstock cut with Stitched Mats: Long & Skinny Rectangle. I stamped and cut my amazing focal point using the Wreath of Roses Stamps and the Wreath of Roses Die. These are just too gorgeous for words. I colored the flowers in bright yellow, pink, and oranges with bright green leaves to really pop off the black and white. Next, I stamped my sentiment from Wreath of Roses Stamps on vellum and added it to the center to the center of my wreath. Here's a closer look:
I went in the opposite direction with this card and used softer tones. I started with a blush cardstock and used the Stitched Quatrefoil Die to give it the most amazing texture. This pattern is too cool and can take a card in so many directions. When I first saw it, I thought Moroccan but when I used it on this card, it brought out some floral elements and I loved that! I decided to show off the Mom Word Die and cut three to layer with some of my florals stamped with Best Blooms Stamps and cut with Best Blooms Dies. I loved having navy as the most bold color in this card. It made the softer colors shine. I layered all my flowers around my sentiment and added a few sequins and pearls for a little shine. Here's a closer look:
Just look at that texture! Love it!
My last card is one that I did on a total whim and I LOVE the way it turned out. It's drastically different from the first two cards I've shown today but still goes with the mother theme. I used this awesome new alphabet set called Pretty Painted Alphabet Stamps and cut some of my letters with the coordinating Pretty Painted Alphabet Dies.
I saw a cute print at Hobby Lobby that said "Your Love Will Always Be My Anchor" and it immediately clicked with me and seemed like a perfect sentiment for a Mother's Day card. I got home and went to work. I knew the awesome new Pretty Painted Alphabet Stamps would be the perfect lettering for this bold of a sentiment. I also knew I would have to pair down the words to make them fit on the card. I grabbed the Vintage Ink Stamps because the anchor was just too perfect for this idea and I loved the "Mom" sentiment. I placed my anchor, colored it in and started arranging my letters around the anchor. I decided to make "Love" pop by making it red and cutting it with the Pretty Painted Alphabet Dies to raise off the card with foam tape. I created the banner from some vellum and stamped it with the "Mom" sentiment and wrapped it around the anchor. Finally, I added elements from the Vintage Ink Stamps to finish the card off. Here's another look:
