Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you moms out there!  I hope you have a special day filled with lots of wonderful memories.  This card is the one I made for my own mom, who is my biggest supporter and encourager.  Love you, Mom!

I stamped the gorgeous bouquet from Concord & 9th’s Hello Lovely with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copics.  As I don’t have the coordinating dies and my ScanNCut2 wanted to do some weird cutting, I trimmed it out by hand.  To add some interest to my white card and to pick up on the black spots in the bouquet, I splattered some watered-down black paint onto my card.  I popped up my flowers with foam tape and allowed part of the image to go off the card.  I trimmed off the excess and tucked some of those pieces back into the bouquet in spots.

The sentiment is a combination of Simon Says Stamp Happy and WPlus9’s Love Mom stamp set.  I die-cut the word happy and adhered it to my card.  I heat-embossed the other part of the sentiment in white and popped up the strip with foam tape.  To add a little more interest and dimension to the bouquet, I added both black and clear Nuvo drops.

Thank you stopping by.  Have a fantastic day!

I’m entering this card into the following challenges:  Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:  Going Dotty, Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge #9:  Florals, and The Flower Challenge #8:  CASE a DT Member (Vivien).

    This is beautiful! Very clever to re-use the bits that got cut off on the edge.
