In May the whole American continent will celebrate Mother’s day but being a mom is a 365 days matter. So this card is for all the precious awesome mums around the globe that works hard 24/24 to raise a family and it can be sent any day.
For today I used Mom Flowers Stamp Setby Simon Says Stamp and Nuvo Shimmer Powders.
I found the images and sentiments from Mom Flowers Stamp Set by Simon Says Stamp extremely eye-catching and depending on how you stamp flowers they will look a little bit different …That’s awesome ! There are 2 florals in the set but that’s all you need to make endless compositions.
You can stamp one flower to make a simple and clean composition, two flowers as I did here, many flowers to fully cover a background, or create small floral clusters as I did today.
This set offers clever design elements. The floral shapes are very versatile and the sentiments in different sizes and styles will adapt to different design needs.
Have a look…

So today I made a little bit of masking to stamp floral clusters at the top and bottom corner of the front panel of this card.
I used smooth Bristol paper, my favourite paper at the moment.
I used the two floral stamps in the set and Black Ink from Simon Says Stamp and the Tim Holtz stamping Platform
I added colours using the new Nuvo Shimmer Powders. I mixed the powders with water and I applied them with a Nuvo water brush.
I also used Nuvo Solar Flare Shimmer powder together with SSS Tiny Spaced Hearts Stencilto add those teeny tiny yellow hearts in the background. I simply placed the stencil on the paper and I sprayed water all over ( not a lot of water), then I put a bit of the powder in the palm of my hand and I blew it so it was evenly applied all over.
On a watercolour pallet, I mixed the powders with water and I applied them to the images as using any other water-based product. After applying colours and when everything was dry, I also splattered a concentrated mix of green powder with a bit of water.
I added black Nuvo drops to the flower pistils and to make the sentiment pop up a bit more I applied Nuvo Crystal Glaze.
Using a faber Castell fine tip pen I added tiny black dots over the flowers.
I hand cut the edge of the floral cluster at the bottom of the panel and I added a piece of contrasting cardstock colour behind.
Then I had the idea to run the panel through my sewing machine to create a pierced edge all around the front panel. It is not the first time I do this because I love the results.
I used an A4 sheet of navy blue cardstock to make the card base.
This card measure 5″ x 6-1/2″ Inches
That’s all for today! Thanks for stopping by.
