Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. This week the challenge is
For A Special Lady
We are showcasing Altenew Products this week. If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge.
As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store. You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.
I feel so much better now that I have my 3 Mother’s Day cards done. To start this card off, I used a piece of A2 sized Arches Cold Pressed Watercolor paper and using my Mini Misti, I stamped the flowers from the Peony Bouquet stamp set by Altenew using Antique Linen distress ink. I used Antique Linen so that I could do some no line watercoloring. I had to stamp the flowers 3 times so that I could see the images clearly. Then after masking the flowers using Post It tape, I stamped the leaves using Peeled Paint distress ink.
I watercolored my images using the Mijello Mission Gold Water Color Palette. I am really impressed with these water colors. The colors are gorgeous and it’s so easy to create your own colors as well. After I colored the images, I once again masked the flowers and splattered the panel with metallic gold watercolor.
Using the Script Mom die by SSS, I cut the back layer using black card stock and I cut the top layer using the same Arches watercolor paper.
I topped the script Mom die with a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen and popped it up on some Gina K black foam squares. Lastly I added a couple Clear Round Drops as an embellishment. Using the Rounded Rectangle Infinity die by Hero Arts, I trimmed my front panel. I glued my card front down to a black card base and attached the entire panel to a top folding card base. My card base is Neenah Solar White 110 lb. card stock.
I made 2 additional cards, one is the same as this, just with different colors and the other design is a little different. Here is a picture of all 3 cards that I made this week.
I used Precious Moments stamp set by Altenew for my message inside.
So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!
