|Something for Mom featuring the Field Flowers and Inspired by Nature stamp sets with sentiment from Family Reunion.|
|Inside view with sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes|
Starting with a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of very vanilla cardstock, I stamped the grass image from the Inspired by Nature set in pear pizzazz ink. I stamped it a couple of times to fill the space. I then stamped the stems from Field Flowers in garden green ink right over top of the grass. I stamped the solid flowers in perfect plum and then the line flowers in elegant eggplant...gotta love two-step-stamping! I added the solid centres in more mustard for contrast. I then sponged the edges of the stamped cardstock using pear pizzazz, going heavier along the bottom edge and lighter along the top. To add a little interest I used my paper piercer and mat pack to add the detail in the top left and bottom right corners before adhering the whole thing to a pear pizzazz card base. For the sentiment, I stamped the "To my" from the Family Reunion set in pear pizzazz on some scrap very vanilla cardstock and then the "Mom" in elegant eggplant. I punched it out with my large oval punch and layered it on a scalloped oval in elegant eggplant. It is adhered to the card with dimensionals.
For the inside I stamped the stem and blossom images again, but stamped them off first to give the more faded image. I omitted the more mustard centres to keep it looking muted and soft. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and is stamped in elegant eggplant on very vanilla and then punched out with the word window.
A simple card made quick and easy thanks to SU's Two-Step-Stamping ingenuity. Sure hope my mom likes it!
