I started by die-cutting the leaves and flowers using the Cherry Blossom Layering Dies with different colors of scrap card stock. I assembled the leaves and flowers using liquid glue and set it aside to let it dry for a few minutes.
The background was made by foiling the A2 Toner Frames Paper (retired) with some gold foil. I trimmed this panel for 4 x 5 1/4 inches and adhered onto some top-folding notecard.

I die-cut a panel of some 110 lb. Neenah Solar White Card Stock using a border die from my collection. I placed this panel inside my Misti Stamping Tool and stamped the images from the Always in My Heart Stamp Set. I colored the images in with alcohol markers and foam-mounted this panel on the Craft-A-Round A2 Die-cut that I previously adhered on some A2-size notecard.
I finished the sentiment in the middle of the card front. Here’s another look:
I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and used the Mama Bear Coordinating Dies to cut them all out. I prepared the background panel by inking up some Bristol smooth white card stock with oxide inks. I set this panel aside to let it dry for about half an hour and used my embossing mat to dry-emboss the background. I adhered this panel on some A2-size notecard.
I die-cut the circle and used the same embossing Mat to dry-emboss this piece and adhered on the card front with liquid glue. I finished the design by adhering the images on the card. Here’s a closer look:
The next card, is probably one of my favorite cards of all time. The simplicity of the background and the sentiment are the perfect combo to cheer up your mom for Mother’s Day.
I inked-up a panel of some Bristol smooth white card stock using distress oxide inks and a heart stencil from my collection. I used the Crafty Plaid A2 Background Die and my embossing mat to dry-emboss the panel for added interest. I adhered the card front with liquid glue on some A2-size top-folding notecard.
The images were stamped and colored with alcohol markers. I die-cut them all out using the Mama Bear Coordinating Dies and adhered on the panel with liquid glue. I finished the card design by adding the sentiment strip and adhering some Meraki Ivory Opal Gems for added interest. Here’s a closer look:

I started by die-cutting the roses on some Strathmore Bristol Smooth White Card Stock using the Scarlett Meraki Flora Para-Dies. I used some mini sponge daubers to add color to the die-cuts with Distress Oxide inks in Abandoned Coral, Saltwater Taffy, Scattered Straw, Mowed Lawn Rustic Wilderness. The stencil mat is the perfect tool to use while ink-blending the die-cuts.
Next, I die-cut the background using the Craft-A-Round Meraki Para-Dies on some Neenah Solar White Card Stock. I adhered this panel on some A2-size notecard with liquid glue. I added the roses on the card with liquid glue and foam adhesive for dimension. A bow was also added for interest and finished the design by adhering the word “mom” that I heat-embossed on black card stock. Here’s another look:

I really love the texture behind the floral image on this card! I think this card is perfectly feminine and beautiful and I really LOVE how this turned out! I hope you like it too and got inspired! The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by today!
The last thing to do is to add the sentiment. The new Chloe Alpha Lowercase Die set is so beautiful and perfect for the soft look I was going for on this card. I die-cut the word “mom” on some Neenah solar white card stock and just to give it a little more interest, I used the Soft Kisses Hybrid Ink with a blending brush to color half of the letters. This gave it an ombre effect. I foam-mounted the die-cuts on the card for added dimension, giving it more of a unified look!
You really need to check out the new release! I absolutely LOVE all the new stamps, dies and stencils at the shop. I’ve listed and linked them below if you’d like to purchase them. Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Mother’s Day this Sunday, to all the moms out there!
To make the first card, I ink-blended a panel of Bristol smooth white card stock with distress oxide inks. I spritzed it with water and dried with a paper towel. I diluted some white paint with water on an acrylic block and used my watercolor brush to add some white speckles to the background. I set this panel to dry.
I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock using some Memento fog ink for a no-line coloring. I colored the images in with spectrum noir alcohol markers and used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.
I die-cut a white card panel using an ocean die from my collection. I foam-mounted this piece on the ink-blended panel to give it more dimension. I adhered the whale in the middle of the card, and stamped the sentiment with Versafine onyx black ink.
To finish my design, I added some clear droplets to the panel with liquid adhesive to make them look like bubbles. Here’s a closer look:
The second card was created with the same steps that I made for the first card. I used some painter’s tape to adhere on the card temporarily so I can ink-blend the background with distress oxide inks. I removed the tape and adhered this on an A2 size card base.
I foam-mounted my focal image in the middle of the card and added the sea weeds using dies from my collection. I stamped the sentiment on the card with some Versafine onyx black ink. I also adhered some black and white patterned paper, as well as a black strip to ground the image.
I finished my design by adding blue droplets to the card to make them look like bubbles. Here’s a closer look:
I hope I have given you some great ideas to stretch your stamps. With just a little imagination, you can use any stamp sets that you have in your collection to create cards for different occasions.

Hello Newton’s Nook fans! I hope you all enjoyed the April stamp release last week and hoping that a lot of you are loving the spring weather and seeing beautiful flowers in your garden. Spring is what inspired my project today.
Using a scallop border die from my stash, I die-cut a piece of Bristol Smooth white card stock using my die-cutting machine.
I colored my background with my Tattered Rose distress oxide ink with my mini ink blending tool. I used my distress sprayer to add droplets of water onto my colored background, and dabbed it dry with my paper towel.
I adhered fun foam at the back of my inked background to give it a little dimension and adhered this piece on my card base. I stamped the sentiment from the April Showers stamp set onto my foreground. I adhered the flowers using my Nuvo adhesive, and 3M foam adhesive.
I wasn’t really planning on adding a process video but since I colored a lot of images, I thought I might as well show you the process (without the coloring). If you prefer to watch the video, here it is:
Here is my card:
I finished the design by adding Nuvo Jewel drops to the yellow flower and added white dots on the Hydrangea.
