Happy Mother’s Day


All week on the Penny Black blog, the Design Team is celebrating Mom.  I thought I’d share a card I recently made.



SUPPLIES Stamps: So Blessed (40-132) Dies: Field of Dreams (51-030) Color: Festive Berries, Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters Distress Ink (Ranger); Versafine Black Onyx (Tsukineko) Other: Natural Jute (May Arts); Clear EP (Ranger); Enamel Dots

I wanted to try the smooshing technique shown by Betsy Veldman here.  I think it’s very subtle and beautiful.  For this card, I used this technique to color my die cuts.  On white CS, I added several different colors of Distress Ink and then die cut Field of Dreams (51-030).

The card is simple.  Once dry, I adhered the die cut to a clear panel.  I stamped and embossed a Mother’s Day sentiment from So Blessed (40-132) and the added final touches of jute and enamel dots.

I hope you check out the blog for further inspiration!
