Mother’ Day Card

Hi peeps! How’s it going? Vera here. Hopefully this post goes up without a hitch as today I will actually be on my way back from our vacation.

Hubby and I decided to go to Amsterdam to see their famous flower fields. It’s been on our bucket list to go to Keukenhof. With my mind filled with the thoughts of flowers and with the Netherlands where my mom used to live, I made this card below.

To start with, I colored a piece of Yupo paper with alcohol pearl inks. I really loving this technique to create soft, rainbow background in no time. Then I trim the panel into 3 section, 1 wide and 2 super skinny strip and adhere them to the card base.

Next, I worked on the flower. I used Beautiful Branches set. Simply stamp, color & die cut it using my Scan ‘n Cut machine. Arrange them on the card and adhere to the card base with foam adhesive.

Next, I stamp the sentiment using the lovely sentiment is from Coming Up Dahlias set. I love this wording. Finish by adding a couple dew drops. Have I mention how much I love using dew drops on my card? Hah…

Oh yeah, hopefully on this last pic you can see the pretty sheen from alcohol pearl inks. I sure hope my mom will love this card.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Wishing you all a lovely day. Cheer…..

 

 

Beautiful Branches

Hi peeps! How’ it going? Phew… this past weekend I went for a much needed crafty retreat. There were close to 50 girls and let me tell you, when that many girls gather, lack of sleep going to happen.

Crafting happened, too though not too much for me. Hah… too busy chatting with everyone. It’s always nice to meet in person friends that you’ve been interacting with online and to catch up with old friends.

Well, this past weekend, The Ton also had an awesome mini release. I was playing with the sets before the trip, which is a good thing, because after the trip, I got sick and didn’t really have time to create.

Anyway, here’s a card that I made using the new Beautiful Branches.

I just recently got some alcohol pearl ink and was creating a bunch of rainbow background. One of them I used on my card HERE and the other part I used on this card. The alcohol ink dries quickly, which is awesome, as I am not very patient in waiting for ink to dry. I simply trim a small part and adhere it to my card base.

Next, I stamp and color this beautiful flowering branch with Caviar ink pad and then adhere it to the card with foam adhesive. I always like a bit of dimension on my card.

Next, I stamp the many thanks sentiment from Peony Notes Bundle set and finish the card by adding some Fairy Pink Sparkling clear sequins. I love the way this card turned out as I do love card with lots of white space.

I think the rainbow strip compliment the flowering branch beautifully, don’t you think?
