Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Mother’s Day Card

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and heading towards the weekend. I actually have the day off today. Since I have to work all day Friday for the last of the month I decided not to go in today. Instead, I’m planning on going to the nursery to buy myself some more Hydrangea bushes. I have a garden that seems to get an excessive amount of water and I thought they would do perfectly there. I’ll buy them and plant them and I’ve asked my son and husband to dig up the garden so I can get it prepped.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concept. For the next 2 weeks we have a Happy Mother’s Day challenge. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Bundle (available May 4th). I was inspired by the beautiful spring flowers and colors in the bouquet for my Clean and Layered card. My design is from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #362.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us this week to play along with our challenge #154. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of the retiring Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Thick Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Stitched Rectangle Dies then embossed is using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the individual flower and leaf images from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, Pacific Point and Polished Pink. I cut the image out using my Penned Flowers Dies (available May 4th).

Using the Penned Flowers Dies, I cut some of the leaves out of a panel of Garden Green cardstock and adhered them to the back of the bouquet using Glue Dots. I adhered a length of the Silver trim from the Simply Elegant Trim (available May 4th) using a little Stampin’ Seal to hold it in place. I adhered the bouquet to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to some of the flower centers. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pacific Point Ink and adhered it to the floral image using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulent Cling Stamp Set in Pacific Point in the center of Basic White panel. I had stamped the floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and colored it in, but decided not to use it. I cut the image out using the detailed floral die from the Penned Flowers Dies and adhered it to the bottom of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pacific Point mat using Stampin’ Seal then adhered it to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the solid flower and leaf images in Daffodil Delight, Mint Maccaron, Pacific Point and Polished Pink Inks. I adhered a panel of the Brights DSP to the envelope flap.
