I’m sure many of you have nostalgic memories of THE HERO PEN. It was a time when the simple hero pen was a luxury. I had to get continuous ‘O’ grades, to get my Dad to buy me my first hero pen πŸ™‚ It was a nice deep burgundy color. And that is the inspiration behind the card.

You don’t always need multiple-step stamps to achieve the shaded look. I inked up my solid image in memento rhubarb ink, and wiped off a part of the ink, I did this a couple of times to get a nice shaded look on my pen. The solid and the outline images are easy to line up. The trick behind aligning the stamp is to make sure that the nib is aligned, and you see no open/white area where the lines fall. I repeated the same steps for the cap. The colour I used is memento desert sand. The sentiment was stamped using memento tuxedo black. The little brown box was a freebie from Itsy Bitsy.

For the left hand side of my panel, I used many of the stamp sets that I own. I stamped them all in Memento Desert Sand.

A Mother’s Day Card

Hello Everyone,

Today, I’m sharing another mother’s day card.

I stamped the Rose image and the leaves onto Bielo White Cardstock.

I then blended in colors onto the images, and then fussy cut them out.

For the trellis background, I had to improvise and use the SSS grid border die. I die cut it multiple times diagonally across a piece of cardstock to get the trellis background.

For the frame surrounding the trellis background, I used the Frames 2 set from Inspired by stamping. I used the partial die cutting technique, twice(inner frame and outer frame) to elongate the die-cut.

I then mounted this frame piece over the trellis background using fun foam and red tacky tape.

For my background behind the trellis, again I went back to blending. I blended in blue colours for my background using the Ranger blending foams. I then used my scissor to trim off the trellis and the background to fit into the frame.

I mounted this onto a top-folding A2 cardbase, and added a strip of silver glitter washi tape to the left.

For my sentiment, I used the “happy” die and sentiment from the PTI Anniversary free gift – Happy Everything.
I finally finished off the card with enamel dots from Prima.

Hope you liked the card. Thanks for dropping by.

Made the background for this card using Wplus9 ikat borders stamp. I used my misti for perfect alignment, and also for double stamping so the darkest ink was even more dark. The inks are cubes from altenew – the Violet collection.

For the foreground I used Altenew Peony bouquet stamp set. Stamped the flower with versafine onyx black, and the leaves in PTI simply chartreuse for some contrast.
