Altenew’s bold blossom Mother’s Day card

Hey everyone,

I’m back this week with another Mother’s Day inspired card, done three different ways. This time I used Altenew’s bold blossom layering stamp set with the coordinating die.
I started by stamping each successive layer from lightest to darker color on some Simon Says Stamp 120# cardstock. I used Memento dye ink in Tuxedo black to stamp the outline of each rose using my Misti stamping tool to ensure consistent stamping. I then cut each flower with the coordinating die.


Colors of the inks I used in each card, from lightest to darkest.

Pink flowers: Memento’s Angel Pink, Rose bud and Love letters.
Blue flowers: Memento’s Summer sky, Bahama blue and Paris dusk.
Yellow flowers: Hero Arts Lemon Yellow, SSS hybrid Lemon Rest and Lawn Fawn’s Carrot.



Using Tim Holtz distress watercolor cardstock and Twinkling H20’s iridescent watercolor allowed me to create a simple and soft watercolor background for my roses to sit on. I love using Twinkling H20’s watercolors, they can be very subtle with just enough shimmer to stand out.  Using Hero Arts’ Celebrate Everyday sentiment stamps, I stamped “Happy Mother’s Day” in the lower right hand corner with archival black ink.

To finish the card, I adhered various color card bases to a top folding A2 size card and continued layering the watercolor background piece and finally adhering the roses with some foam adhesive for added dimension.


I love how these cards turned out. They are very simple and yet very elegant for the special ladies in my life for upcoming Mother’s Day celebration.

I decided to play along with Altenew Inspiration Challenge over on their blog and enter the pink card for the May challenge. Check out their blog for more information. Wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
