Good morning and welcome back to the craft room and today’s Flashback Friday Mother’s Day post. Today’s post takes us back to April 2010 and the StampTV’s sketch challenge. Let’s take a look at the cards I created.
April Release Party Sketch Challenge
This past Thursday was StampTV’s April release party for their new stamp set. Wow, if I had a whole lot of extra money, I’d purchase each new set, they are all so amazing! During the release party, they offer challenges, contest questions, and the full stamp set previews with cards made by the design team.
This month the sketch challenge hostess was Theresa Momber. Her card sketch can also be used as a scrapbook page, which makes it a extra special treasure in anyone’s sketch file.
Here is her card sketch:
In addition, here’s the sketch as a scrapbook page:
Mother’s Day Cards
My first glance at this sketch had “Mother’s Day Card” floating through my head. I looked through my design paper trying to find something that matched the idea I had, and found some old Anna Griffin paper. The stamp is from Theresa’s Sending Sunshine set, and the “Mom” is an alphabet set that has been floating around my scrap room for year. (I’m not too pleased with how “Mom” turned out, so I’ll be looking for a new alphabet set soon.)
Here is my card. I used my Martha Stewart markers in Evergreen and Hyacinth to color the image. To get the lighter image I used the generation stamping technique. As soon as I stamped the first image, I “huffed” onto the stamp to add some moisture to the ink left on the stamp. This gave a really nice faded image behind the stamped “Mom” sentiment. The sentiment was stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento ink, and the brown satin ribbon matches the brown mats used on the card.
And here is another card I made with the same sketch/papers/design for my mother-in-law:
Thank you so much for joining me for today’s Flashback Friday Mother’s Day post! These cards were so easy to put together and I know our mom’s loved them! Join me again next Friday for another Flashback Friday post. Until then, I want to wish all of the mother’s out there a very Happy Mother’s Day!
