Amazing Mom!

Hi there,

Glad you've stopped by. Today I'd like to share another card from the June Reveal using the Baby, Oh Baby Set 875.

I did a little paper-piecing on this project. First I stamped the image on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored everything but the dress with Copics. She was then fussy cut.

Then I stamped the image again on the designer paper in Versamark, and before heat setting. I brushed off the Black Detail powder from the rose. 
I fussy cut the dress after heat setting and then I covered the entire dress with Versamark and heat set with Clear Detail.
Using the new Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive 200n, which comes as a fine point applicator, I attached the dress to the colored image.
After die cutting the Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Decorative Elements from white cardstock I daubed Nuvo Embellishment Mousse Peony Pink and Lilac Lavender
I ran the colored circle through my machine with the Darice Hearts Embossing Folder. This was attached to the designer paper used for the dress and then layered to a white card base.
I trimmed the girl using the decorative die cut at her legs so that she would match the bottom of the circle. I punched a small hole in front and behind her hand for the rose to go through. She was attached with 1/4" Tear-ific Tape at the legs and then her head was attached with Mounting Tape. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Mulberry. After cutting out the sentiment, I sponged a little Lulu Lavender around the edges. A white bow was tied around the circle and then the sentiment was attached with Mounting Tape. Nuvo Glitter Drops Sherbert Shimmer were added to the bottom of the sentiment and card base. The same drops were added to the pink of the headband and when this was dried I went in with Nuvo Crystal Drops Ebony Black to add the centers to the flowers. 
Here is a list of the SNS product that was used to make this card:
Stamp Set Baby, Oh Baby #857
Embossing Powders: Black Detail (EP171), Clear Detail (EP280), Mulberry (EP415), 

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Hope you're excited to get this Blog Hop on the Road? This set of stamps is just so versatile that I couldn't help but use the Swallowtail Butterfly set #856. Let's face it - who doesn't like butterflies? 

To begin with I made a fun background with the Nuance Powders - sprinkling on a little color here and there, on top on the Watercolor Cardstock then sprinkling with water and adding the different Nuance powders until I was happy with the result.

So then I thought to take a stencil and play with a little mouse Here I am using the Tim Holtz Stencil Speckles stencil with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse Cornflower Blue.

Just applied a little to the top corner with a spatula. 

Using the Misti Stamp Positioner, I stamped on top of the Embossable Acetate to get a good impression and heat embossed with Cerulean. These butterflies and the little butterflies from the same set were all done the same way and fussy cut.

The sentiment from the same set was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Cerulean EP421.

It was sponged with Summer Sky and then removed from the die before being applied with Dandelion.

Nuvo Crystal Drops were added different points of all the little butterflies. 

The background was edged with Versamark and heat embossed with Robin's Egg as was the card base. 

I found these little flowers in my stash. After they were situated on the card I then added the Crystal drops to the centers of the flowers.

The butterflies were attached from the back with mounting tape.

Here is a close up of the flower elements, with the Crystal Drops on top!

Hope you've enjoyed my share today? A little mixed media too!

Happy Flowers! Happy Birthday!

Hi there, today I'd like to share a little birthday card that I made using the May Reveal Happy Flowers Set 840. This is such a cute little set. 
I stamped the image in Black StazOn on watercolor cardstock as I was going to color it with the new Nuvo Aqua Flow Markers. They are so vibrant and they blend really nicely too.
I only used four colors for my little scene: Spiced Ginger and Red Apple for the flowers and Fresh Green and Evergreen Fern for the leaves.
They color very similarly to Copics. Go in and paint the lighter color over the darker shade to blend the shades. The image was die cut with Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals Large and a little Memento Summer Sky was sponged around the image before removing the die.I then added some Orange Crush Glitter to the flowers with the Quickie Glue Pen.
I took a piece of light blue corrugated cardstock and randomly applied the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse Cornflower Blue with a spatula. I actually used my heat gun to quickly dry the mousse and this made the mousse "bubble" which I happened to really like. Will be doing this again. 
The sentiment was from the Silhouettes Set 493, one of my SNS all time favorite sets! I stamped this in Versamark and then heat set with Black Detail. This was fussy cut and layered to a little piece of the corrugated backing.
The backing was layered to a piece of watercolor cardstock edged with blue Copic B63 and was then layered to the white card base. The image and sentiment were attached with Mounting Tape. Then I applied the Nuvo Crystal Drops English Mustard and Ripened Pumpkin sporadically around my image and sentiment.
That finished up my card for today!.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Creative Moments - Challenge 119: Anything Goes with a twist - Birthday
