ATS April Release Sneak Peeks - Day 3!!

Thursday, April 5, 2012

Good Morning! Today is day 3 of the All That Scraps sneak peeks and we have a set that just perfect for all the mum's out there!

Up until now, I have had a huge hole in my stamp collection. I had no Mother's Day stamps! Shocking isn't it?! It's one of the biggest card-giving holidays and I had no stamps for it! But I do now! :)

This beautiful set by Amy R., called All About Mom, is chock full of sentiments in amazing fonts as well as this gorgeous quote! I had to use it! To make this card, I stamped out the wet embossed the sentiment by inking up the stamp with Versamark ink, then applying SU's Chocolate Chip over the top of it. Then I stamped it out on some white cardstock. Then I applied clear embossing powder to it and heat set it. Then I cut it out using Spellbinders Deckled Oval Nestie. Next, I sponged the edges of the panel with Antique Linen, then Tea Dye Distress Ink. I kept the base pretty simple because I wanted to make these paper flowers again. Aren't they beautiful?! I made them by punching out about 10 circles of paper from a vintage book (I pick them up at auctions all the time!), sponged the edges of each one with Tea Dye, then stacked them up, pierced the middle and added a brad to keep them together. Then I scrunched each layer towards the center of the flower until they were all crushed. Gently, I pulled on the edges of the flowers until I could see the brad again. It's a really pretty look and one that easy to do - just a little time consuming!

If you want to see what the other images are in the set, then head on over to the ATS blog! You'll see cards from the rest of the design team AND if you leave your name in the InLinz at the bottom of the post, then you have a chance to win yourself the set! Just by leaving your name! I'm sure you have a mother or mother-in-law who'd love a card made with this set!
