HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY Y’ALL
We are celebrating Moms today over here in the UK, and so its only fitting that I have a Mothers’ Day card to share in today’s video tutorial. Whats more, it features lots of products from the awesome MAMA Elephant! This is one of my favourite stamp manufacturers and I was so in love with the Lil’ Painters stamp set that I was very naughty and bought it as soon as I saw it arrive in a UK online store!
I simply HAD to use it for todays card. Whilst I was giving in to my crafty retail urges, i spied that the Mama Elephant zipper die was also in stock. I have been wanting this for ages, so i just went ahead and clicked ‘Add to Cart’ without a moments hesitation! Teehee!
The idea for this card was to create a white top panel, with a colourful panel beneath, so when you pull the zipper a colourful cardstock can be seen, with the message ‘you’re a good egg’. This message is from the Mama Elephant Just Hatched set. Of course, this silly legit didn’t take a photo of the hidden message but you will be able to see it in the video. On my card, I wanted there to be a family of cute chickies, all having fun drawing a picture of mummy. The cute easel is in the Lil’ Painters set, but I pulled out the ‘mother hen’ image from the Mama Elephant Lunar Animals stamp set (technically i think its a rooster, but lets not dwell on that) 🙂
I used my distress inks and a damp paintbrush to add some loose colour to the bottom of the panel, and after I coloured my images with copics and stuck them down, I added some splotches of pink and blue ‘paint’ using Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers distress inks. I wanted it to look like these chicks were getting super messy – we all know kids love messy play!
For the greeting I built the word Hello from the ME alphabet stamp set called Cali Letters, then added the word MOM with the new Iconic letters set. I love the way you can build the shadow on top of the solid image!
On the inside, i added a few extra images from the Lil’ Painters set and stamped a greeting on the inside – for this I used a Paula Pascal stamp set called All Year Round. It has some awesome words that come in useful for holidays all year round!
Thanks for joining me, and I hope you enjoy the video.
Happy Mummy’s Day to my Mummsy and Mom (mother in law) – they really are the best this gal could ask for!
