A Mother's Love
Today I am sharing a quick card designed with the new Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps A Mother’s Love Clear Stamp Set from the SNSS April Release and the previously released stamp set, Grunge Elements 2.
A Mother’s Love is such a wonderful set with several silhouette images and sentiments about motherhood- perfect for Mother’s Day as well as for new Moms or just encouragement cards!
For the background, I used a “smooshing” technique that I love to use so I am linking to the AAA Cards #112 “A Favourite Technique” Challenge and am also participating with the CAS on Friday #130 “Mother’s Day” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites or the SNSS Blog/FB Page yet, I encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Pat your ink pad onto a silicone crafting mat (I used Distress Ink), lightly spritz with water, press white cardstock into the ink, lift the panel and re-position in the ink. Continue to press and lift until you are satisfied with the background. Dry with a heat tool.
2). De-static the panel with an embossing powder tool, ink the image and sentiment from A Mother’s Love with archival black ink, stamp onto the panel, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
3). Ink the hearts from Grunge Elements 2 with distress ink and stamp onto the panel. Wipe off any excess ink from the images with a paper towel.
4). Die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die, mount onto black cardstock and adhere to a white card base.
