Hi Friends and Happy Tuesday! The Mother’s Day Taylored Expressions Release is now available and it is absolutely amazing with GORGEOUS florals-botanicals and funny-sweet sentiments perfect for wishing the Mom in your life a special day.
Today, I’m sharing two Mother’s Day cards using the In Bloom Cling & Clear Stamp Set along with a Greeting Card Set using the Circle Botanical & Coordinating Botanical Sentiment Stamps.
In Bloom Cling & Clear Mother’s Day Cards
For both my cards, I followed the same card-making process but with two different color combinations and few layout tweaks. For the background image outlines, I stamped the In Bloom Background the darkest blue and purple inks. Then I used the Clear Stamps to color-in the flowers.
For the Sentiment, I stamped the Mom image and then using Sugar Cube Ink, I stamped over the MOM image with the Gingham Background Stamp. Then I die-cut MOM using the On the Block-Mom Shadow die. The Sentiment Strips were white heat embossed on Oreo Cardstock using the Min Strips-You’re Perfect Stamp and Mini Strips Die.
For the Layered Sentiment Panels, I ran a piece of Sugar Cube Cardstock with the Pierced Circles Cutting Plate through my die cutting machine. For the Blue Card, I place the Pierced Circle frame to the bottom of the card panel. For the Purple Card, I layered the Pieced Circle frame with Plum Punch Card Stock to the top of the card panel. The I adhered MOM and the Sentiment Strips with foam adhesive to complete my Mother’s Day Cards.

Circle botanical greeting card set
The Circle Botanical Image is HUGE and I love it—it’s an elegant instant impact design! It fits perfectly on a square card and looks beautiful taking up an entire A2 card panel.
I chose to color my Botanical Images with Copic Markers in an assortment of blues, greens and purples (V05, BV01/02, BG13/15/18/49, B91/93/97 and YG21/23/25).
In addition to the sentiments in the set, the new Botanical Sentiments fit perfectly in the center of the circle which I heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
To create the circle cut-out on the navy blue A2 Card Design, I used one of the Stitched Circle Stacklets.
To finish the cards, I added Glossy Accents to the berry branches and a You’re the Best Mini Sentiment Strip to the Square Card Design.
