I used blue painters tape over the text on the stamp, inked the stamp, peeled the painters tape off, and stamped. This allowed for the letter to appear blank and then added the sticker letters to spell out “MOM.” I colored Sophie and the grass with watercolor crayons. And used spica glitter markers on Sophies coat to appear like she’s wearing a raincoat and to add sparkle to the card. I love using stamps in different ways for all kinds of occasions and not just what they were originally intended for. It gives your stamps new life and versatility.
This butterfly pattern paper really shouted out "spring" to me, so I knew I wanted to use that. And it was in the school paper pad. So, you never know where you'll find inspiration for other occasions. The card still looked a little plain. So, I matted "Sophie" with yellow pattern paper and added a border punch in pink pattern paper. Stamped the sentiments and stitching. And added a few gems to make it sparkle some more.
Happy Mother's Day!~Kim
