Stampin’ Up! Blossoming Basket Mother’s Day Card

I pulled out the Stampin’ Up! Blossoming Basket stamp set bundle and the A Mother’s Flair stamp set to create a Mother’s Day card to share with you today.  Karen K suggested that this bundle would be excellent for Mother’s Day cards and she was so right!

I used a Blender Pen after heat embossing to color this beautiful image and I’m planning to jump on Facebook Live to show you how I made this card.  Hope that you can check out the replay on Facebook or on my YouTube channel on the link below !

The colors and flowers on my card were inspired by Global Design Project 128.

I started by embossing a panel of Crumb Cake card stock with the Basket Weave Embossing Folder (Sale-a-bration item).  I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Crumb Cake card stock with SNAIL.  Then I stamped the basket image from the Blossoming Basket stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of watercolor paper, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.

I used a Blender Pen along with Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist and Crumb Cake inks to color the basket image.  I adhered the watercolor paper panel to a panel of Lemon Lime Twist card stock with SNAIL and then wrapped a strand of Linen Thread around it and tied a bow.  I adhered the layered panel to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the A Mother’s Flair stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Basic Black card stock, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I cut the sentiment out with one of the Petals & More Thinlits Dies and then adhered it to the card front with SNAIL and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the little tag from the Blossoming Basket stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Watercolor paper and heat embossed it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I colored it with Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral inks and a Blender Pen, then snipped it out and adhered it with a Glue Dot to the card front.  I colored three Rhinestone Basic Jewels with a Black Sharpie Marker and then added them randomly around the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the A Mother’s Flair stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock, then heat embossed two butterfly images from the Blossoming Basket stamp set on either side.  I used a Blender Pen and Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral inks to color the butterflies to finish the inside of the card.

  1. Wish I could join you live but I’ll be at church making cards for over “80”. Hopefully, you will have the replay up by the time I get home 🙂 Have fun. This is a very pretty card and I like the technique you used.

  2. Yippee, Yippee, I’m doing the Happy Dance right now! Can you picture it in your head? So proud of you for using the blender pen, Amy, you did a Wonderful job coloring with it! You were able to achieve such nice depth to your blooms and even to your basket for that matter! Thanks for another way to use this stamp by embossing it first, then coloring. ~Hugs

    • Thanks Roberta! It took me awhile to come around to using Blender Pens…but once I figured them out, I’ve been using them a bunch!! 🙂
