Take a look at the gorgeous garden in bloom on this card designed by Keia Shipp-Smith. She combined several of the new Bloomers shown above with another new set on today’s feature list; Simply Stamped – Butterflies:
Here’s a closer look at the gorgeous butterflies in the Simply Stamped – Butterflies set and the coordinating die set for the images:
This is the same set that I used on my own sneak peek project for today in combination with the new Block Party – Mom die and sentiment from the Simply Said – Mom stamp set:
I started by masking a strip about 1/3 down from the top of my card panel. Then I began stamping the butterflies to achieve the all over pattern. Tip: whenever I’m creating my own patterned paper, I always start by stamping the largest images first and go down in size from there leaving the smallest images for last as it’s easier to fit those small images in whatever open spaces I have left. And one more note regarding the color of the yellow butterflies, it was achieved by off-stamping our Dijon ink once before stamping it onto the card layer.
After finishing the pattern, I used the MISTI tool to stamp the center of the largest butterflies and then added Taylor’s Tiny Twinkles, placing them with my Embellie Gellie tool. Then I die cut the Block Party – Mom die from orange swiss dot paper from the Rainbow Brights 6×6 paper pack and stamped the sentiment with Earl Grey ink.
Up next on the list of products for today is a die set to coordinate with one of our favorite previously released stamp sets; Mama & Me:
This set is great for cards for mom and mom-to-be as Keia shows us on this adorable baby card:
We also have several awesome new products that will be a must-have for the crafty mom or friend! Check out these adorable additions to our crafty Little Bits dies:
Here are just a couple of my favorite samples showing these cute Little Bits:
And another coordinating die set to go with one of our previously released crafty favorites; A Life She Loved:
Last, but certainly not least, here’s one more thing to help you with making Mother’s Day cards this year; the adorable Super Mom Stamp & Die Combo. Personally, I love the ‘panda-monium’ sentiment!
Isn’t this card that Gayatri created just adorable!? I think the black enamel stars are the perfect touch!
