OSAT Blog Hop Mother's Day

Welcome to the One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop for April - Mother's Day!  I hope you enjoyed Andrea's fantastic projects and enjoy the rest of the blogs along the hop! 

My mom's interests were my inspiration for my card and project.  I hope she likes them! Here is the front of my card.

This is made with a whisper white card base, matted in blackberry bliss, and then added a layer of painted blooms DSP embossed with the spring flowers folder.  The painted petals stamp set was used for the sentiment (embossed in gold) and flowers (blackberry bliss & wild wasabi).  A layer of wild wisabi is used to mat the whisper white with the flowers on it.  I used our wonderful jute ribbon as a background, but modified it by cutting it on top and bottom and peeling some of the layers away.  A couple of these layers were then used to make the bow. I don't stamp the inside very often, but wanted to do so on this card.  This sentiment is from my go-to stamp set called Teeny Tiny Wishes! A list of all materials used for both projects is at the bottom of this post.

My mom recently visited while she was on spring break.  A favorite place for us to visit is the botanical gardens.  We had a beautiful day, and we enjoyed this field of crocus which was my inspiration for my other project.

My next project is framed art inspired by this scene at the botanical gardens.

Here is a more detailed view.

My project used one of my current favorite Stampin' Up! sets - Sheltering Tree!  The tree is early espresso and pink pirouette.  The grass is done in wild wasabi with flowers in daffodil delight, perfect plum, and elegant eggplant (with garden green stems).  I used my scallop punch to make a template for my clouds and then sponged on the whisper white cardstock in both soft sky and marina mist to create the sky. This is matted with a 5x7 early espresso cardstock in a 5x7 white frame from any store.

Thanks for visiting and hop on over to Debbie's blog for the next stop in our One Stamp at a Time blog hop!

  6. I love your framed picture. Looks like crocuses trying to push themselves through the snow, like in Minnesota today. I also like how you embossed the dsp for your card, adding just a little more interest to the paper. Great idea.
