I have been on a bit of a roll with Pretty Pink Posh products lately. I originally made some Valentine’s Day treat bags with the Floral Hearts stamps and dies. I didn’t get the pictures up before Valentine’s so I didn’t create a post for them. I’m sharing a picture below. My mom’s birthday is coming up and Mother’s Day will be here in a hurry so this idea of the three hearts had been floating around in my head.
Here are the Valentine’s Day goodie bags I made last week. I colored the tags with Arteza watercolor brush markers. The bags were filled with Herseys Valentine’s Day themed hugs and kisses so the stamped sentiment was perfect.
I wanted the card to be really feminine but since my mom (or mum, as she would write) lives on an island in the West Indies, I like to send her cards with vibrant colors. I ink blended some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock with an mini ink blending tool and picked out four Copic markers that matched and coordinated with that color. I used R22,BG23, V25, and YG25 (notice they are all 20s).
I stamped the floral heart three times with VersaMark Ink onto Neenah, Solar White Cardstock after prepping it with my Ranger Anti-Static Pouch. I then sprinkled on some Ranger Ink – Basics Embossing Powder – Gold and heat embossed them. I colored them with the Copic markers I had chosen and diecut them with the Floral Hearts Dies. The little sentiment is from the same stamp set, stamped on a scrap of the same cardstock with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink and trimmed with scissors.
To create a little accent around the inked panel I colored two strips of cardstock with the BG23 marker and glued them to the back of the panel. I could have searched for coordinating cardstock but this was much easier and a perfect match. The center heart is popped up with fun foam behind it (which I also diecut) and the entire heart panel with the accent strips has lots of foam tape behind it.
For the card front I wanted a little bit of pattern. I tried out several pattern papers but none felt right. I ended up using the Polka Dot Turnabout 6×6 Stamp from Concord & 9th and stamping it in Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink andWorn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink as well as withVersaMark Ink which I then coated with Ranger Ink – Basics Embossing Powder – Gold and heat embossed. The turnabout can be stamped up to four times for a fuller background but I thought that would be too busy.
The diecut letters are from Concord & 9th’s Double-Cut Alphabet Dies set. You could totally skip these letters if you wanted to give this card to someone else. I diecut them out of gold glitter paper for a little extra pizzazz.
I think my mom will really like this card which she will get for Mother’s Day. Now I need to make her birthday card since her birthday is at the end of this month and it requires a long travel time. Bye for now!
