Art With Heart April Creative Showcase - Mother's Day

Welcome to the Art With Heart Stampin’ Up! Team Monthly Creative Showcase. The theme for this month’s showcase is Mother’s Day. Under the current conditions Mother’s Day this year is going to be completely different to any other Mother’s Day celebrations. 

I would so love to see my Mum on Mother’s Day, but with the current conditions of this Pandemic with COVID-19 I will have to wait until it’s safe to see her. I am looking forward to spending the day with my two beautiful girls and hubby in our little bubble. I’m looking forward to breakfast in bed and a sleep-in would be great too.

The Art With Heart Team are hoping to share a little Mother’s Day love and inspiration with you tonight. Here’s my creation using the gorgeous Dressed To Impress Bundle and other Stampin’ Up! products from the 2020 Mini Catalogue.

The stamped images are in Basic Gray Ink this gives the images a lovely subtle look and blends in well with the other colours. Using a Sponge Dauber, lightly sponge Melon Mambo Ink onto the Parfum bottle and flowers. Also add Grapefruit Grove Ink to the flowers, I think the two colours blend well together and I must use this colour more often in my projects.

The Dressed To Impress Stamp Set has a Mother’s Day stamp included in the set and the greeting fits perfectly with the label die from the All Dressed Up Dies.

Using scraps of Silver Foil, die cut the images out with Painted Labels Dies. The large Stitched Swirl looks perfect under the Parfum bottle and I’ve placed the smaller swirls under the greeting.

Using the two largest dies from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies the first is in Whisper White Cardstock and sponge Grapefruit Grove Ink onto the Cardstock. The other Stitched So Sweetly Dies is in Petal Pink DSP using the print of the script side.

The card base is in Petal Pink Cardstock, adding a layer of Whisper White Cardstock and I gave the panel a subtle vintage look. To achieve this look sponge Petal Pink Ink onto the Cardstock with the Sponge Dauber and run it through with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder with the die-cutting and embossing machine. Lightly run the blade of the Paper Snips along the edges and curl the edges with the Bone Folder. I’ve used Multipurpose Glue as my main adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals under the Sliver Foil.

The next demonstrator to share her Mother’s Day project is the amazingly talented Rachel Woollard.
