LOVE YOU with a Stampin’ Up! Sneak Peek

On Mother’s Day, I shared a project I made for The Pals Paper Arts Challenge.  While I wished you all a wonderful Mother’s Day, several of you commented and emailed to ask why I wasn’t sharing my Mom’s Mother’s Day card.  The reason?  I’m sharing it today.   As I leave for Hawaii, Mom and her friends are coming to stay at my house – a girl’s weekend for all of them.  This card will be waiting for her when she arrives – it’s after Mother’s Day, but I knew she’d see it if I shared it before today.  Anywho…here’s my card:

Friendly Wishes, Painted Petals, Stampin' Up!, sneak peek, Brian King

Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Sneak Peeks.  This card shares two sneak peek items from the 2015-2016 Annual Catalog – the sentiment is from Friendly Wishes, and the vibrant red ink and paper is Watermelon Wonder.  The stamp set features some great sentiments, but this one seems most fitting for my card to Mom.
  • Last Chance.  I haven’t showcased Painted Petals very much (outside of the sentiments in the stamp set), but the set is going away on June 2, so you’ll want to make sure you pick it up soon.  The flowers in this set are gorgeous, and the sentiments are WONDERFUL! 
  • Extended Beauty.  I extended the height of this already-long stem on these flowers by masking the stems above and re-stamping the base.  I didn’t bother using my Stamp-a-ma-Jig – but I got pretty close.  It doesn’t look so pretty at the meeting point, but I knew they would be covered by the banner.Friendly Wishes, Painted Petals, Stampin' Up!, sneak peek, Brian King

  4. Beautiful card! I love pink and green together so I was very excited to see the new green…we really needed a bright green. I know you didn’t use the new one on this card and it’s beautiful the way it is but I can wait to pair Cucumber Crisp with Watermelon Wonder.

  5. Are you going to make the swatch books for the new catalog? I look forward to getting your books every new catalog.

  6. Have fun in Hawaii Brian- make sure you give my upline Kylie Bertucci a fist bump for me! Enjoy your well deserved trip! (Btw- your card is gorgeous!)

  7. Oh, Oh!! Your mom and her girlfriends for a few days in your house? I agree with Susan, that Fungeon will be in their sights, I can picture them having a stamping great time!!!
    Your card is lovely, this colors pair great together, she’ll love it.
    I know I don’t have to tell you to have a great, relaxing time in Hawaii Brian, can’t wait to see the pictures, I want to see you sporting a fabulous tan in them.

  8. So very nice Brian!!! Have a great time in Hawaii.

  9. What a fabulous card for your Mom. I too am having a delayed Mother’s Day. I willo celebrate it on the 17th with my girls. I wish I could sneak down and join Mary and her friends…………what a fabulous opportunity to take over the fungeon with no holes barred. LOL

    Can’t wait to see photos of your trip. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! Hugs.

  11. A very pretty card for your Mom! Have a great fun trip in Hawaii!!!

  12. I L-O-V-E these colors together!! I think the Watermelon Wonder my be my favorite new color. It’s tough with the new taupe, but I can fix that by using them together often. Enjoy your trip and travel safe!

  13. Watermelon is my favorite summer fruit….Took some of the fun out of eating it when they brought out the seedless…I loved the seed spitting contests…but I do love the seedless now…Looks like I might have I new favorite “watermelon”
    Love the card!

  14. So clever, extending the stems! Sweet card!
