Happy Mother’s Day with Stampin’ Up! & FREE SHIPPING ENDS TODAY

I’m excited to share today’s project with you – it’s a Mother’s Day card with three GREAT Stampin’ Up! stamp sets.  This clean and simple card is perfect for almost any occasion.  I love the way everything came together as I created this card – almost as much as I love the finished product.  Here’s my card:

Mother's Love, Crazy About You, Draw the Line, Stampin' Up!, Mother's Day card, Brian King

Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • All About the Base.  The four Basic Gray lines that span the Whisper White card front are from a photopolymer stamp set called Draw the Line. These lines create the focal base of my card – and I love them.  Not only do the lines serve to hold the fun flower, but they also house the sentiment (the sentiment is created with a combination of words from Crazy About You).  If this stamp set isn’t on your list, think again – there are so many great ways to use these simple lines.  🙂
  • Snippy-Doodle-Dee.  Because I stamped this flower over the lines from Draw the Line, the lines would show through if I stamped the “two-step petals and stems” that come with the set.  As such, I stamped the image on Rose Red and Pear Pizzazz and then snipped the pieces.  I’ve talked a lot about paper-piecing with sketchy images – that’s because I love it!  If you missed my paper-piecing video, please check it out here.
  • Color Combination.  Pick a green, pick a pink.  You almost can’t go wrong.  I love this combination of a rich pink and soft green.  I liked it so much that I added a piece of Rose Red Background Designer Series Paper Stack to the flap of my envelope.  Easy score!  If you like it, too, feel free to save this:Color Inspiration, Stampin' Up!, Brian King
