Art With Heart Monthly Creative Showcase - March theme Mother's Day


Today the Art With Heart Team are sharing their Monthly Creative Showcase with you. This month we have Mother's Day theme cards to share with you.  Although we only need one or at the most two Mother's Day cards every year all of these designs could be used for other occasions such as birthdays or congratulations with a simple change of greeting.

I have two Mother's Day cards to share with you today.

The first card used the Prized Peony stamp set and the soon to be discontinued Peony Garden DSP.

I stamped the single flower bloom three times in Gray Granite ink on Basic White card stock. These were then coloured with the Blends Markers. One was Petal Pink with the Colour Lifter, the next Petal Pink and a tiny bit of Flirty Flamingo and the last one with Calypso Coral. The leaves are coloured in Old Olive.

I've used a small piece of Peony Garden DSP as the background. The greeting from the Strong & Beautiful stamp set was stamped in two parts. I first inked the Happy part of the stamp and stamped it on the card stock. I then cleaned the stamp and inked the Mother's Day section and stamped it under the Happy. The greeting was then cut using one of the Ornate Layers Dies.

The final embellishments were some Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon and Polka a Dot Tulle behind the flowers before they were attached to the card.

The card base is Gray Granite and the mat is Petal Pink.

For the second card I have used the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and dies which are not continuing to the next catalogue and therefore are only available until sold out.

I stamped the main image in Memento Black on Basic White card stock and then coloured with So Saffron, Old Olive and Soft Suede Blends Markers.

I stamped the Happy Mother's Day from the Strong & Beautiful stamp set on the So Saffron back ground in Versamark ink to give a subtle effect. I stamped it again on Basic White card stock in Memento Black ink.

The final touch was a few Rhinestone Jewels scattered around.

Don't forget that the items I have used in these projects that are not carrying over to the new catalogue are only available until sold out. Contact me if you have any questions.

  2. Stunning cards Rachel, I love the soft pretty colours with the shades of gray.

  3. Your colouring is lovely! I'm still trying to get to grips with blends colouring. I love it, but not sure I do it well, yet....
