With Mother’s Day just around the corner, Mother’s Love is a perfect stamp set to add to your collection. This set is offered in clear mount, wood mount and photopolymer. Yippee! I am excited to share a clean-and-simple project and some tips for getting the most out of your wood mount stamps. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Mother’s Love. This is the second week in a row that I’ve used this super-cool flower from Mother’s Love. You can see my first post here. I just love the bold and sketchy flower – so many opportunities to combine it with sentiments to create thank you, thinking of you or other cards. I chose to use the sentiment from this set for today’s card.
- Simple Layout. You already know how much I love a simple layout, right? I can always find something to appreciate in an intentionally clean project. For this card, I let the white space do its work – the image, sentiment and a little bit of color are [very important] visitors on the white card front. The colors pop on the white base because they are recalled on the border underneath the white panel.
- Stamp-a-ma-Jig Templates. I love my wood mount stamps, and I love my Stamp-a-ma-Jig and use it often to make sure my images are exactly where I want them. You can see my Stamp-a-ma-Jig video here. The Stamp-a-ma-Jig comes with plastic sheets – you stamp your image (temporarily) on them and then line it all up. You can create permanent templates with StazOn and Window Sheets – just toss them in the stamp case for the next time you need them. As I was preparing for a class this past week, I made a few templates with card stock vellum (not as clear but same effect as the Window Sheets):
Stamp Sets: Mother’s Love Papers: Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Whisper White, Birthday Bash Specialty Designer Series Paper (envelope liner) Inks: Tuxedo Black Memento, Stampin’ Write Markers (Old Olive, Calypso Coral) Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Envelope Liner Thinlits, Stampin’ Dimensionals
