Happy Monday, it’s hard to believe that April is almost here already, this week is already Easter! It got me thinking about the next big card day around the corner, Mother’s Day! Today I have two Mother’s Day cards using Background Stamps!
The first card that I made is a monochromatic card. I used the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Background stamp called Dots & Floral. You get two stamps in this set, for my card today I used the Floral stamp. I decided to do a Monochromatic card, I started with a lighter purple paper and used a purple stamp pad to stamp the image. I made a 5″x7″ card base in a lighter purple as well. I used a Spellbinders die set, Heirloom Rectangle for this project. I cut the stamped image for the center, then I used a darker purple for the die cut image. I also cut the other element that was used for the center of the card in the darker purple.
I inked the edges of all pieces before assembly. Finally I added the roses, the sentiment “You Inspire Me”, which was one of the element tags from Heartfelt Creations Roses on Raindrops paper package. I inked the edge of the tag too. Here is a look at the finished card:
For the second card, I used a JustRite Stampers background stamp called Elegant Damask, I absolutely love this stamp! I chose a light yellow cardstock to use for stamping the image. I used the same ink color as I did for the previous card. Note how much different the color is just by changing the base that I stamped on! I found a coordinating card stock and cut a 5″ x 7″ base for the card.
I added some washi tape, and I stamped the “Mother” on the yellow card stock as well. I used the same element from the Heirloom Rectangle set. I also used Heartfelt Creations Cut, Mat, Create set 1A for the rectangle to back the sentiment. Finally I added a little bling! Here is a look at that finished card:
Here is a list of the supplies used that are available on the Cut@Home site:
CMS220 – Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Dots and Floral Background Stamp
CL-04320 – JustRite Stampers Elegant Damask Background Stamp
HCD2-749 – Heartfelt Creations Cut Mat Create 1A die set
I also used the Spellbinders set mentioned, Raindrops on Roses tag, Hero Arts Grape Juice ink, Studio 112 Mother Stamp, Gems, roses and card stock.
Isn’t it amazing how different the same color looks stamped on a different card stock! These cards were fun and easy to make.
I hope that you enjoyed my post today, til next time…
