Paper craft project no. 183: Thanks for all you do, Mom mixed media card [with video tutorial]

2014-05-05 Thanks for all you do Mom
It’s the first Monday of May, which means it’s time for a brand new sketch challenge at STAMPlorations! Joining us as guest designer is the super creative card-maker, Mynnette! Do check out her card and the inspiration projects that the rest of the STAMPlorations girls created! You’ll love what each of them made for this sketch!

For my project, I went with another mixed media card. I used dye inks, distress paints, and gold embossing powder. Last week, I splurged on new dies and I used one of them (from Lil’ Inker) in my card. I also used a Hero Arts stencil (Tweed Pattern/Chevron)  and basically stuck with a monochromatic color scheme because I wanted a card with bits of shabby, vintage, and elegance.  This is a card that’s perfect not just for Mother’s Day, but any other day as well. See the background? I used two small grunge floral strips to create a shabby/vintage background. (The stamps I used are from the new sets that will be available this week — and we’ve got a blog hop to celebrate it! ) Anyway, why don’t I show you how I made this card? Yep, another video :o) It’s less than 7 minutes and like my previous videos, it’s in fast-forward motion, captioned, and accompanied by Mozart.

I’d like to enter my card to Virginia’s View Challenge #3: Stitching. In my previous entry, I used rub-on stitches. I went with faux stitching again in this card, but using dies. I might be working my way toward doing some real stitching — *start heart palpitations* and who knows, I may finally bust my Brother sewing machine out of its box before Virginia’s challenge ends. *end heart palpitations* At Addicted to Stamps and More, the theme is holiday (my card is a Mother’s Day card, although it fits other occasions as well). And finally, “Mother” is the theme at The Paper Players #194.


That’s about it for me today. I hope you all have a super creative week!
