Just like with the last sketch challenge, I used this idea to get ready for Mother’s Day. The stamp set of choice for today is EVERYDAY HERO.
This is perfect for my Mom, she really is a super hero to me! She’ll love the bright bold colors and sentiment, a great way to say how awesome she is.
The super mom is colored with watercolor pencils to get the bolder colors. I added in extra wow factor with the stars from STAR BLAST EDGELITS as a backdrop, love the burst of Daffodil Delight! And the sentiment is heat embossed in white on the Pacific Point to make it stand out as well.
Lots of bold colors today! I hope you enjoyed the inspiration, there’s lots more where it came from! Just go to Create with Connie and Mary to check out the cards by all of the Design Team.
There are several bundles from the Occasions Catalog that I have yet to work with. So for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge, I pulled out the DRAGONFLY DREAMS Bundle for my card. But before I get too far ahead, let’s take a look at the colors we are featuring this week.
Beautiful combination, don’t you think?? I wanted a soft watercolor look to go with DRAGONFLY DREAMS so I paired it up with products from the April My Paper Pumpkin.
I used the card base and one of the watercolor papers from the kit. Everything else was from my regular stash of products.
The water coloring shows off all three of our colors this week. I used my aqua painter and ink pads to create the look. I also added color to the rest of the background, a little bit of Island Indigo. I used that same color for the dragonfly die cuts and added a bit of Wink of Stella to each to make them sparkle.
The inside of the card had to be embellished as well. The stamps from the kit along with the washi tape worked out beautifully. The Mother’s Day sentiment on the front of the card was pulled from Oh So Succulent, I thought it was a wonderful greeting to go along with the MPP stamps. Nice to get a head start on Mother’s Day this year!
How about giving these gorgeous colors a try?? Stop by Create with Connie and Mary to check out all the Design Team samples for inspiration. Thanks for stopping by today!
I’ve actually got NEW PRODUCTS to share with you today for my card! I used a new bundle that includes a stamp set called SWIRLY BIRD and SWIRLY SCRIBBLES THINLITS.
I can see this stamp set being a new favorite! It’s got wonderful swirly flowers and all sorts of bits and pieces to create all sorts of things! For this card, I didn’t use the stamp set as much, I focused more on the coordinating SWIRLY SCRIBBLES THINLITS.
The flower is created from two die cuts done with the new In Color PEEKABOO PEACH. I think it looks amazing against the watercolor background made with DAPPER DENIM. It’s a gorgeous new shade of blue that will be lovely for watercolor wash and many other things.
I added a sentiment in bold black and white from PICTURE PERFECT. I think it’s a wonderful greeting for a Mother’s Day card! There’s also a couple pops of color with the leaves in EMERALD ENVY and the splotches in DAPPER DENIM. And as always I put a couple of sequins on, had to have those! So what do think of this little sneak peek?? Are you ready for more? Well, the MAY MINI SESSION from Create with Connie and Mary is all about NEW PRODUCTS!
