Colorful Butterfly Background | Simon Says Stamp

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a card using the Outline Butterflies background stamp from Simon Says Stamps new release.

I stamped the Outline Butterflies background on some Bristol Smooth paper with Versamark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then blended over the embossed background with Distress Oxide ink. I used the colors Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, and Wilted Violet. I adhered the background panel to an A2 size card base.

I stamped a sentiment from the Love You Mama stamp set from Simon Says Stamp on some vellum and embossed it with Alabaster embossing powder from Brutus Monroe. I fussy cut that sentiment out and popped it up on the card with foam tape.

I stamped a smaller sentiment on white cardstock with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink. I cut it into a small strip and popped it up above the larger sentiment. Next I used a white Prismacolor pencil to color in the butterflies in the background.

To finish up the card I added some clear sequins. I also used Wink of Stella on the smaller sentiment as well as on some of the butterflies in the background.

Mother's Day card for a Grandmother

For today's card I made a Mother's Day card for my grandma. I used a stencil and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink to blend the background panel.

To make the butterfly, I heat embossed the stamp using my Versamark ink and clear embossing powder. I was sure to stamp this image on Smooth Bristol paper for the coloring. I then did some very simple coloring with my Arteza markers using pinks, orange, yellow, and purple. I used my Tim Holtz waterbrush to do all of the blending for the coloring.

The sentiments for this card come from the Lawn Fawn set "Mom And Me." It is a fantastic set for mother's day. I love the sentiments in it and the images are really adorable!

Mother's Day Wreath Card

I thought I would get started a little early this year on the mother's day cards that I need to get done. For this card I used a floral wreath stamp. This stamp is no longer available, but if you wanted to make something similar all you need are some floral stamps. Use something to draw a circle on your paper, for example you could trace a circle die. Then just use that circle as a guide to stamp your different floral stamps to create a unique wreath.

I heat embossed the wreath using a gold embossing powder. Then I pulled out my Reeves watercolors to paint the background and the wreath. I stuck with a simple color palette of just three colors, yellow, pink, and a sea green.

I die cut a circle for the sentiment. The sentiment is from the Hero Arts stamp set "Celebrate Everyday" and it says "Happy Mother's Day." I heat embossed this in gold just like the wreath. For some finishing touches I added dashed lines and sequins. I will probably give this card to my grandmother. Both my mother and my mother-in-law watch my YouTube videos so I haven't decided if I will make a video of their cards. I don't really want to spoil it for them!
