Ink Smooshing With Bloomin’ Hearts Thinlits Dies – Using Die-cut Negatives

Hello guys! I’m back today with ink smooshing technique again. But this time I’ve used die-cut negatives I’ve saved from my previous project.

For these cards, I decided to choose different colours: shades of red, green and purple. The base of my cards is again a watercolour paper as it’s perfect for watercolour techniques. I explained ink smooshing technique in my post here.

To add some more detail to the die-cut pieces I run them through my big shot with Happy Heart Embossing Folder. I love how they stand out from busy backgrounds.

To stamp main sentiments I have used my die-cut as a guide to make sure I stamp it exactly in the middle of my card. I stamped it in Versamark and heat embossed in gold. Before adhering the panels I’ve made few “splotches” using Gold Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush.

To finish off my cards I took a strip of black cardstock and heat embossed “love you” sentiment in gold. My husband’s friend came over at the weekend and “nicked” one card for his girlfriend straight away haha Hope she will like it.

If you like my project or got any questions please let me know in the comments below.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a blessed day,

Mother’s Day Card using “Mum’s Love” Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up!

Mother’s Day – a day to show love to all wonderful mums in the whole world. In different parts of the world it’s celebrated in different days: in US it’s second Sunday of May, in Poland it’s 26th of May but here in UK and Ireland it’s celebrated on fourth Sunday of March. But regardless time and place it’s a day to show how much we value and appreciate their hard work. We give them cards, Mother’s Day gifts or simply buy flowers. A little acts of kindness is all that matters after all.

So today I want to share with you this beautiful fun fold card for Mother’s Day. It’s quick and easy to make and you really don’t need many supplies to make one.

To make this card you need  half of A4 piece of card stock (cut in half on long side) folded in half. I’ve used Strawberry Slush. Then you cut front panel of the card in half. This is our base.

You will also need three pieces of whisper white card stock. For inside of the card you need a piece that measures 5 5/8 x 4″. And two smaller pieces for the front panels: both measure 4 x 2 3/4″. One of them I run through the Big Shot with Happy Heart Embossing Folder and slightly sponged embossed part with Pistachio Pudding ink.

On second panel I stamped a this fun flower. It’s double step stamp, so for the first step I used Basic Black ink, and for second step Strawberry Slush and Pistachio Pudding. Both, flower and sentiment comes from Mum’s Love stamp set. Don’t you just love this sentiment and artful font? 🙂

This stamp set has a coordinating sentiment for the inside of the card and it’s amazing: “…and no mum deserves more love than you…” – Isn’t it beautiful? Now it’s time to asseble the card.
