Today, I’m sharing an easy card over on the Hedgehog Hollow blog featuring stamps from the February 2020 subscription box. We’re going to whip up a floral mother’s day card with just a few ink pads and stamps.
To start off, I created the background using three colors of Simon Hurley’s dye ink pads. I used Piggyback, Rosy Cheeks, and Triple Berry. I grabbed the floral image from ‘Catch Up Soon’ and mounted in on my acrylic block. I used the ‘repeat stamping’ technique to create a background with this image in Piggyback.
Then I stamped up the same stamp again, but was careful not to get ink on my entire stamp. I stamped directly over top of the original images with Rosy cheeks. I repeated the same process with Triple Berry, covering even less of the stamp. I really love the subtle multicolored effect here. To save time, you could always just stamp in a single color.
I grabbed my Mini MISTI and stamped out the watercolor background from the January box. I used the same multicolored ink technique here, but you could stamp in a solid color if you prefer. I used stamps from Oval Sentiments and paired them with my hand lettered sentiments from Feminine Words to create the sentiment ‘for an amazing mother with lots of love.’ How cute is that for a Mother’s Day sentiment!? Love it!
I fussy cut the watercolor background and popped it up on foam tape. I mounted the card panel to a white A2 sized card base and added a few clear sequins to finish things off. I love how this turned out and I can’t wait to hear what you think about it.
