A mother’s day card for a Mimi

I got an email with Mother’s Day gift ideas from The Natural Life and they have a super cute sign that says Best Mom Ever, well I got inspired... 
Here’s the sign..


I wanted to make a card for my mom, but I wanted it to be from my daughter, so it says Best Mimi Ever. So here’s what I came up with...

I started by pulling some floral stamps I picked up from a recent trip to JoAnn’s and a few different pink, yellow and green distress inks. 

I stamped the flowers and while the ink was still wet sprinkled it with embossing power..


Heya set the powder and repeated until I was happy with my flower boarder.




I also added some details with VersaMark ink and embossed with the same clear powder so they appeared white when I moved on to the next step. 


Using Distress Oxide ink in Iced Spruce and Broken China, I blended the two colors around the edges. 


I used Distress Oxide ink in antique Linen to the center of the card. 


I then sprayed some water onto the inked paper and dabbed the water droplets off with a paper towel. 


Then I hit it with the heat gun again quickly to make sure the paper was dry. 


Next I needed my letters. So I took. Scrap of black card stock and ran it trough my big shot. 


I used a ruler to make sure my letters were centered and I glued them down with some liquid glue. 


Repeating that step on the next line of text. 




I used some fun foam in place of foam mounting tape to pop my image up on my card base. I just used my ATG to Aeneas it all together on the card base.

Monochromatic Alcohol Ink

Recently I’ve been playing with Alcohol inks and I totally love seeing what happens when in use one color. 

Believe it or not I only used “lettuce” by Ranger. 
I got several different shades of green, some browns and even some bluish tones. 

Alcohol inks are definitely addicting. 

This piece is on a sheet of photo paper. When I was happy with the way the inks looks I made sure it was completely dry and I pressed a piece of reactive foil onto it, to get the veiny like appearance of gold.

Bring on the Sunshine Wishes and Sunshine Sayings (Stampin Up)

Yesterday was the second day of spring, and we got the biggest snowfall! So I took the snow day to make a little reminder that the sunshine IS coming. Maybe spring just needed a little invitation.

Pieces & Patterns (Stampin Up) Dino Why, Thank You Card

I got the Pieces & Patterns stamp set, from Stampin Up, in and I absolutely love this little dinosaur!! I thought he would make a perfect pair with the thank you sentiment to make a simple and quick card. 



The Pieces & Patterns stamp set is really sweet...

I used three Stampin Blend markers; Dark Old Olive, Light Old Olive & Light Daffodil Delight, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Daffodil Delight Stampin pad, and Black Enamel Accents from Ranger. 

I cut a few pieces of card stock in complementary colors. 
A green card base, a darker green layer, two white layers and two pieces for my sentiment. 


I randomly stamped a few Dino friends on my second layer sheet. I made sure to have one dinosaur be a focal point and stamped everyone else around him. 
  

Using my Stampin Blends I colored in one dinosaur. 

Coloring his belly first with Light Daffodil Delight, the entire body with Light Old Olive and one stripe on his back with Dark Old Olive. I then went back over the body and dark line with the Light Old Olive Stampin blend to blend the colors together. 
  


I then attached my first and second card layers together making sure to leave an even boarder and set it off to the side. 

I stamped my sentiment using Daffodil Delight on my second sentiment layer. 


I then attached my sentiment layers together like my card layers above and set it aside as well. 

I used the small circles from the stamp set to create a kind of boarder for the inside layer. 

I scored my card base at 4 1/4


And brought everything back to assemble. 


  

I added some Enamel Accents on the front of the card. 
 

Check out the height on these dots!!


You could get the same effect by using enamel stickers. 

Give the Enamel some time to dry, and enjoy!
