Hey y’all – it’s Sunday (Happy Mother’s Day!!), which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a color challenge from our crafty Claire this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo! I hope you’ll come and play along. 🙂
If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me! If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!
Every Stampin’ Up! catalog includes a few stamp sets that are available only as Host rewards (or for individual orders that qualify!) and this new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog is no exception! As a little perk of being a Demonstrator (one of many!), I was able to buy two of the new sets during our Pre-Order. One of those, the Touched My Heart set, is the focal point for my perfect-for-Mother’s-Day card today! Take a look-see:
And here’s this week’s Paper Players color challenge! Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects! I can’t wait to see what you create! 🙂
I used the sketch challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches to inspire the layout.
I started with a piece of Pool Party cardstock and, using the two leaves images from the Touched My Heart set, stamped all over the panel in Pool Party ink. Then I added the little butterfly here and there amongst the leaves.
I used one of the embossing folders in the new Greenery Embossing Folder Pack (coming on 3 Jun in the new catalog), to emboss just the side of the panel. Then I adhered it to a Granny Apple Green mat with Liquid Glue.
On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the pretty heart image from Touched My Heart in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Then I colored it with the Melon Mambo and Granny Apple Green Watercolor Pencils.
I cut the image with the largest circle Stitched Shapes Die – then cut the next largest circle out of the middle.
I adhered the “frame” to the card front with Liquid Glue.
Then I wrapped a length of Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding around the card front – adhering it in the back with Glue Dots. Finally, I popped the remainder of the image onto the card front – making sure to line the image up! – with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment in Granny Apple Green on a strip of Whisper White and snipped banner ends, edged it with my Pool Party Stampin’ Write Marker, then adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The Touched My Heart butterfly, stamped in Pool Party on Whisper White and fussy cut, then colored with the Melon Mambo Watercolor Pencil, is popped on with another Stampin’ Dimensional.
A single Melon Mambo gem from the Glitter Enamel Dots (these are retiring so get ’em fast!!) finished off the card front!
On the inside, I stamped a leaf and a butterfly in Pool Party on a Whisper White panel and colored them with the Watercolor Pencils…
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green mat and into my Pool Party card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Touched My Heart leaves and butterfly on the front…
…and on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! This is such a sweet and simple stamp set – with line-drawn images and lovely sentiments in pretty fonts – I know you’re going to want it in your tool chest!
I hope you like!
And I can help you get this stamp set – either now as a new demonstrator (yes, you can select pre-order goodies for your Starter Kit!!) or after 3 June (consider my Online Host Club!!). Give me a shout!
