Good morning, y’all! Happy Mother’s Day! Hope you’ve got plans to celebrate or BE celebrated today! Wish I was closer to MY mom today!
My card is a Mother’s Day card (talk about outside the box) using a retiring Host Exclusive stamp set called Just Because – that I paired up with some new Woven Threads DSP and a fun textures image from the new Woven Heirlooms stamp set (the Woven Threads suite will be available on 4 Jun to customers!). Take a look-see:
The layout for this one comes from this week’s Global Design Project’s CASE The Designer challenge…the card we had for inspiration came from my friend Brian King.
I started by matting a piece of new Woven Threads DSP on a Rococco Rose panel for the card front.
The art, from the Just Because host-exclusive set in the 2019 Occasions Catalog, is stamped on Whisper White. I used my Stamparatus and first masked off the words and stamped just the flowers and vase in Tuxedo Black. Then I masked the flowers to ink the sentiment portion in Pretty Peacock and stamped that.
I cut out the image with two Rectangle Stitched Dies.
I adhered the outer frame to the card front with Liquid Glue.
On a different design of the new Woven Threads DSP, I stamped the vase again in Tuxedo Black and fussy cut it. I went over all the lines of the image with my Journaling Pen and then adhered it over the stamped vase.
Using a Blender Pen and ink from the top of my Rococco Rose Classic Ink Pad, I colored the leaves – some I colored more than once so that some are dark, some light! I popped the panel into place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I added a new 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dot in Rococco Rose and the card front was done.
On the inside, I used the long texture stamp in the Woven Heirlooms stamp set coming on 4 June and inked it in Rococco Rose. I stamped it off twice on scrap paper and then stamped it four times without re-inking up the corner of a Whisper White panel. Using my Stamparatus and some Sticky Note masks, I added another sentiment from Just Because in Pretty Peacock.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Rococco Rose mat and into my Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the same Rococco Rose Woven Heirlooms treatment in two corners…
…and some more Woven Threads DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I do believe this Just Because set has the best sentiments, don’t you? Especially perfect for Mother’s Day! I hope you’ll get it before it’s gone – remember it’s a host set, so…gotta getcha some Stampin’ Rewards to be able to get it! And I love the vintage texture we can get from the new Woven Heirlooms stamp set – this was my Prize Patrol gift from OnStage. Since it’s smack in my wheelhouse, I was thrilled as you might imagine! 🙂
I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix
Well – the Man turned himself pretty much inside-out when he realized I was home on Friday night!
I didn’t get back until around 8:30 – and Wayne left him in the house while he rode up to the gate to let me in.
Once I was parked, Wayne opened the back door and out he came.
His first response was to…BARK – cuz…. “DAD – THERE’S A STRANGE CAR IN THE DRIVEWA…..Mooooooooom?!?!?”
And then…I had to brace. Cuz here came out there 75 pounds of Aussie!
Once the initial impact was past – there was wild wiggling and panting and grinning!
And Finn was pretty wound up, too! 😉
Sure glad to see that face!
