Flowers for Mother

Mothers love to get flowers for Mother’s day so this card is perfect.  She’ll get a special note from you and beautiful flowers that won’t die.

Mother's Day Flower Card

This card is extra special because it has a fun hidden note behind the flowers.  The pot is actually folded in 1/2 and you can pull the top flowers out to revel a hidden message just for Mom.

Mother's Day Flower Card with tag out

I absolutely love the detail and dimension in this card don’t you?  It’s so easy to achieve with the bone folder.  Simply hold the edge of the bone folder on the center of the inside of flower.  Press your finger on the other side of the flower against the bone folder and pull.  This will help to softly curl the paper much like you curl ribbon with scissors for a balloon.  This is also a great effect for curling tags.  They are finished off with a tiny pearl in the center.

Be watching for the cute matching box that we made for club.  Just a quick reminder two of the colors on this project are the retiring in-colors: Primrose Petals & Raspberry Ripple.  They will be gone soon so be sure to get yours before they are gone.

Technique Tuesday 1-6-09

best-wishes-sponge-daubersSponge Daubers

This technique is fairly simple but I love it.  It works best with a bold image like this one: Upsy Daisy set #1111710 for $18.95.  This was another card from Brandi’s Card night at her meeting.  Once again I don’t know the Creator but I love the card.  I created a similar one for club.  You can check it out by clicking here.

First you want to choose to complimentary colors to create your image.  Here we have chosen Baja Brezze and Pacific Point.

Next you want to stamp your whole stamp in the lighter color.  Here it would be Baja Brezze. 

Then ink up your sponge dauber with the darker ink, Pacific Point in our example.  Use the sponge dauber to ink just the tops of the flowers.  Just touch it lightly to th tops.  This give the flowers color and dimension. 

Last stamp your image onto your paper.  One of the fun parts of this technique is that every card is truly different.  If your stamp colors are close like these two there is usually no need to clean your stamp in between if you are stamping multiple cards.

This card is finished by applying Kiwi Kiss ink to the edges of the top note paper and adding the Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla Satin ribbon along with the Maine Blueberry DSP.

So go ahead a try out this fabulous technique today.
