Hidden Sentiment Card + Simon's Fluttering By Hop

Speaking of Cathy, I used her new Love You Mama stamp set that she designed for Simon in the card I am sharing today! I love the pretty script and cute florals; they are playful and fun! I used those stamps with the new Petal Envelope die to make a sweet, hidden message card!

From the outside it looks like a typical card (see that glittery butterfly? That’s the new Adeline Butterfly die!). But when you untie the twine bow and open it up…

It reveals a fun message on the inside! I used a mom themed set of greetings for my card, but you can easily change the sentiments to fit whatever message you want to convey!

Be sure to check out how I made this card by watching the video at the top of this post!

Hidden Sentiment Card + Simon's Fluttering By Hop

I really enjoyed using the Love You Mama stamp set so much, I had to use it again! This time I paired it with the pretty Center Cut Flowers cling stamp.

This card took a VERY long time to create because I put so much detail into the coloring. I stamped the florals with an Ink on 3 Fadeout ink pad (perfect for no line coloring)! I used Copics to color the base shading, and then brought in colored pencils for the details. I loved the relaxing process of coloring, so I had a blast making this card.

I embellished the card with the beautiful Stitching Butterflies and Flickering Butterflies die sets.

The final card I made for today features the lovely Mom’s Flowers stamp set! I adore floral images and these are perfect for pairing with other favorites you have in your stash. That’s what I did here; I added leaf images from the previously release More Spring Flowers and Even More Spring Flowers stamp sets. It’s fun to match up images from new and older sets to get fresh looks!

I used the same Copic and colored pencil technique that I had used in the card above. I clustered the florals together and added sentiments that are from that same Mom’s Flowers set. To embellish the card, I included some of the gorgeous Butterfly Kisses sequins around the arrangement for a bit of sparkle!

    What gorgeous cards! I really like the tone-on-tone decorating of the envelope in the first card. I also really like seeing how one can go more sketchy or more detailed with this stamp set. And the combo of the stamps with the flower garden background stamp is just genius; they look made for each other! Thanks for sharing so many great ideas with us!
