Colorful Seasons Stamp Set Mother’s Day Card

May 10, 2017

It’s so much fun to sit down and experiment with new products, especially when you have a definite goal, using the Colorful Seasons stamp set.  As a demonstrator I was able to pre-purchase the new products used in May to prepare for sharing in time for the June 2017-2018 Annual Catalog release. If you don’t yet have a copy of this new catalog and don’t have your own demonstrator, send me an email with your name, address and contact information and I’d be glad to send you one.  In the meantime you can check out the catalog PDF here.

 

Today’s goal is Mother’s Day.  I needed three cards and knew pretty much what I wanted to do.  My cards, using the Colorful Seasons stamp set, Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies, and the fun new Color Theory 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Stack were fairly quick and easy to make.

And these are the cards for my daughters and daughter-in-law:

I added delicate drops of Fine-Tip Flue Pen glue to the flowers on the branch.

Careful drops of glue were added to the flowers on the Memento Black branch.  Be sure to set the card/s aside to dry for at least twenty minutes.

 

Let Mom sit back and enjoy a bit of cool refreshment on her special day.

The refreshing glass of lemonade (or whatever!) was added to the chair arm as a suggestion for Mom to get a cool drink and sit under a tree with a book in peace and quiet for at least a few minutes.

 

Supplies used for today’s cards:

  • Card stock:
    • Whisper White Thick: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″ and folded
    • Basic Black: 5/16″ x 5-1/4″; attach to back side of right Designer Paper strip using Multipurpose Liquid Glue–on the left side when laid down on card front.
  • Colorful Seasons stamp set (143726, 2017-18 Catalog)
  • Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (Happy Mother’s Day image)
  • Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack (144193, 2017-18 Catalog)
    • two pieces measuring 2″ x 5-1/4″
  • Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies (143751, 2017-18 Catalog)
  • Big Shot
  • Glitter Enamel Dots
  • Multipurpose Liquid Glue
  • Fine Tip Glue Pen

While I know most readers won’t be able to use the Colorful Seasons stamp set and other new products I used today, you can certainly use the layout idea and substitute another stamp set and, perhaps, coordinating framelits or thinlits.  Before I go to the mailbox tomorrow morning I also need to make a “Mother’s Day” card for my brother.  He’s a May 14th baby, not a mother.  And on June 1st, after noon Mountain Time, I encourage you to go to my Stampin’ Up! store and purchase your early favorites from the new catalog.

PS.  Here’s the inside and the envelope:

    I LOVE your cards and hope to offer this at a workshop party! I am very happy to see your note about the black strip of card stock and, was pleasantly surprised by the Fine Tip Glue Pen on the black inked branch! Your cards are beautiful; thank you for sharing! 🙂
