World Card Making Day with Mom

This past Saturday was world card-making day and I spend the day with my mommy making cards. It was my mom’s first time making hand-stamped cards. She was the designer and stamper and I was the cardstock cutter and ink/stamp preparer and cleaner =P She did a really good job with the designs and I learned many new tricks and color combos from her! Here are some of the cards she made.

This card uses the Eastern Blooms branch stamp and a non-SU sentiment. The colors are apricot appeal and riding hood red. I love this color combo! I never thought to use these 2 colors together before.

This card also uses the Eastern Blooms set and a non-SU sentiment. It follows a design that I’ve CASED from somewhere online. The colors are tangerine tango and chocolate chip. Lesson learned from this design is that the sentiment doesn’t always have to be below the image, it also looks good above the image!

This card is the simplest card my mom made but also my favorite. It uses one of the trio flowers and the large flower from the Eastern blooms set. The colors are regal rose and chocolate chip. Some of the background flowers have a stamped off look because my mom stamped the flower once and then a second time without reinking. The large flower is stamped on whisper white and cut out. It is only adhered in the center and the petals are curled up a little for dimension. I love how the flowers in the background go up one side of the card like they are bubbles floating up. This is definitely one design to CASE for the future!

This last card uses the Upsy Daisy stamp set. Unfortunately again, the sentiment is non-SU but I love that script! The colors are not quite navy, baja breeze and chocolate chip. That chocolate chip is such a staple! This card is so simple but the Upsy Daisy stamp makes it so elegant! My mom also stamped all the envelopes to coordinate with the card.

What a fun day! Hope you are able to spend a day making cards sometime soon!
