My Creative Time April Release - Day 1

Happy Monday!!!
Today is the first day of sneaks for this months My Creative Time April releases. We are featuring a new stamp and die set called "Mom" today.

 My first card, I started with a circle of watercolor paper. I stamped the floral stamp twice and embossed it with white powder. Once I figured out where I wanted my sentiment I stamped and embossed it. Then I used my TH distress ink and blender and added color to the paper. Once I was happy with it, I then attached it to the base of the card. Last, I added the word "mother" and sequins. The circle and wavy circle are both from Bunch of Fun Circle Dies.

This card was my test card, but I like it enough to share it. The only difference is that I used clear embossing powder on my flowers instead of white, like the first card. The sentiment was an after thought, after I added the color, and so I had to use white embossing powder so that you would be able to see it. The watercolor paper is not quite as white as the white base paper and white embossing, so there is a subtle difference in color but I still think it's pretty. The oval and scalloped oval were cut from the Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies.

  35. I can't believe at first I didn't notice they were different cards :( I like the splatters of water with the sequins and how well they go with the embossed flowers. Great technique and I think both cards are so pretty and great shape card designs.
