Hi there. I’m joining in on a fun blog hop today celebrating the new release from Simon Says Stamp. It’s called Mothers, Fathers, and Flowers and it is so fun. I was immediately drawn to THIS stamp set from the release because of the icons in it.
I’m a big fan of using the smaller images in stamp sets and stamping them repeatedly, creating a background. I did that with the flower and beer mug image to create these cards…
When stamping repeatedly, I like to start at an angle. This helps give the illusion of stamping perfectly. After the images were stamped I used THESE watercolors to color in the images.
For the Father’s Day Card…
For the Mother’s Day Card…
I created it the same way as the Father’s Day card. To finish it off, I added a shine on the flowers with THIS glitter pen…
I also created matching envelopes for each card using the large sentiments in the stamp set.
This set is not only good for Mother and Father Day cards, there are some other fun icons and sentiments as well.
