MFT Creative Challenge, It's all About Mom!

Photobucket


Hello Stampin' Friends! Welcome to our Design Team Creative Challenge, a monthly feature, where we challenge our design team to explore their creative side with a specific theme, product or technique. This month "it's all about Mom!" Be Sure to check out the MFT blog to see a list of all the designers with creative project ideas for you today!

I'm sharing a card and wine bottle tag that I made for my Mom for Mother's day! I used this super cute Pure Innocence Cute-A-Tude girl, that I just LOVE! My mom's favourite colour is red (and I love it too) so I pulled out these beautiful Echo Park, This & That Graceful 6x6 papers for the card. I coloured the PI girl with my Copics and paper pieced her dress, then popped her up on the panel created with the Oval STAX Die-namics and the Decorative Doily Die-namic. I also used the Monarch Border Die-namics and Pinking Edge Die-namics.

I created the sentiment by stamping the "I love you" stamp from the PI Rose set and the word "Mom" from one of the sentiment stamps in the PI Cute-A-Tude set. then I cut it out using Joanne B.'s "cut and re-cut technique" with the Chat Bubble Die-namics. To embellish I used some white cotton lace trim and Cherry Blossom flowers with the Royal Leaves Die-namics and of course, lots of pearls...I love me some pearls, if you haven't noticed, smile!

The wine bottle tag was created with the Let's Toast Stamp and Die-namics set, the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics, Oval STAX Die-namics and the Decorative Doily Duo and embellished to coordinate with the card.

Here is the inside of my card...I stamped the PI Cute-A-Tude girlie again. Here is another sentiment that I created with 2 different sentiment stamps just like on the front of the card. One from the PI Rose set and then the word "Mom" from a sentiment from the PI Cute-A-Tude! A little tip on how I do this...I ink only the portion of the sentiment stamp that I want to use. I find that my little Memento Dew Drop inks work well for getting the ink in the precise spot. I wipe away any ink that accidentally ends up on any of the surrounding letters with a baby wipe or my finger. I find that if I stamp the last word(s) first, it is easier to line up the beginning part of the sentiment, that is from another stamp. 

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my project for this month's MFT Creative Challenge! Please swing on over to the MFT blog to the listing of designers that have Mother's Day inspirational projects!

Happy Stampin'!
Hugs,
