Mother's Day Wishes | ft. Simon Says Stamp "Beautiful Day"
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
While I know it's a little early, today I have a lovely Mother's Day card featuring Simon Says Stamp "Beautiful Day" stamp set. I got this set in the April 2018 card kit, and though the kit is sold out, you can certainly still purchase the set individually. There is so much going on in this set, it is definitely worth a look.
I had zero plan when I started out this card set, so there's no video. I kind of wish that I had filmed anyway because it turned out so wonderfully.
To begin, I stamped the butterfly and the leaves with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock and coloured them with Copic markers.
I cut two inch strips of cardstock in each of the colours that I coloured the butterflies, and used a lined stencil with the same colour ink to create a tone on tone patterned paper.
Each of the cards is a top folding standard A2 sized card base made with the same 110lb cardstock as I stamped the images on.
I stamped the greeting from Lawn Fawn's "Mom and Me" stamp set with Memento Ink. I used clear Wink of Stella over the whole of each butterfly, then used Glossy Accents by ranger over the darker dots and teardrop parts on the wings. Finally to finish off the cards I used some coordinating crystals from Studio Katia.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar, over on Facebook and on YouTube! Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
