Project # 1 May Mother's day cards
Mother's day is just around the corner and I thought I would provide your 2 different cards that I made for my mother and mother in law.
For this card, I used papers from Homespun collection, Minis & Picturesque papers, Lace 10, Embossing Powders Cotton Candy, Flowers Christmas & Heartland blooms.
For this card, I used the same paper collection, but added different elements like the use of the Honeycomb stamp set, 14 Karat Emblossing Powder, Barb's Medallion chipboard, Chesterville Blooms Flowers & Lace 4.
Layout #1: Cherish
This amazing picture was the inspiration for this next layout, my friend Brittany's daughter is just too cute for words in her peach tutu. I was inspired to use the Amber & Apricot collection for this layout.
From the Amber & Apricot collection I chose to use: Flora, Friendship & Tweet Melody papers
Under the photo I used the Amber & Apricot printed chipboard with a touch of colored cotton cloth. In my floral arrangements I used flowers from the Apricot Blooms & Harvest Lilies sets.
I decided to cut out the little bird and feathers from one of my papers to add onto the side of my picture. I love the softness it was bringing.
The Cherish chipboard is simply stained a bid darker for more contrast with the paper. You will also find under the Amber & Apricot flowers, an embossed image of the Weathered Doily Stamp in Baby Pink embossing powder.
Layout #2: Happy
I've had my heart set on crafting this beautiful picture of my niece with her family for a while now. When going thru my papers, I fell on Pacific Coast from the Wanderlust paper collection and knew that this was the perfect one for this picture.
I started by applying a coat of white gesso under my picture are to highlight the focus. Then added some touched of sepia stamping with the Remnants Collage Stamp Set
I used various papers from the Wanderlust collection to build my layers under my picture. I hear embossed in Breeze color the Happy chipboard title.
The chicken wire chipboard is painted in 2 different colors to give it an old look.
The last step was to stamp some flowers, add a few drop of white gesso, and there you go an old feel kind of layout.
