ClearSnap: Mother’s Day Projects

Hi everyone! ClearSnap shared these Mother’s Day projects I created over the past two weeks on their Instagram account and I’m now able to share.
First project is this simple card I created using the Tiny Dot ColorBox Creative Cards as a base for my card. I inked the “I love you mom” stamp with ColorBox Archival Wicked Black Ink. I dug into my cardstock scraps and double matted the sentiment and before adhering to the card I added a doily, more bits of cardstock and lace. I finished off the with a mini heart and two flowers and a leaves that I inked with the blue ink from the ColorBox Petal Point Pigment Ink and Iced Jade Chalk Ink. I let dry, shaped and added thread and a mini gem to each center before gluing to the card.

Next project is a gift card holder. I folded a 6.25″x3.125″ Tag to create a pocket and then embossed with the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder and then I did a wash of ColorBox Blends Sunshine to the tag and once dry I lightly inked the raised images with Gold Ink. I adhered the flaps of the pocket to tag, added cardstock, lace, flowers and seam binding to finish this gift card holder off.

My third project is a gift box. I used the masking technique with the “I love you mom” rubber stamp. I used ColorBox Archival Wicked Black Ink to stamp the word mom onto a piece of white cardstock and inked the edges of the sentiment with Gold Ink. I cut a total of six Heart and Soul Flower Diecuts from white cardstock. I inked my glass tray with Melon, Tutu, Wildberry and Nutmeg.,spritzed with water and laid each flower into the watered down ink. Once I got the desired results I removed from the ink and let dry. I shaped each flower, adhered together and added a button, sequin and gem to the center. Before gluing to the top of the box I cut two of the sprigs of leaves from felt with the Spring Leaves Diecut. I glued to the back of the flower along with some loops of cording.

My fourth and finally Mother’s Day project I cut from Mat Board the 3D Tea Cup Diecut and embossed with the Floral Tapestry Embossing Folder. I inked my glass tray with ColorBox Blends Sunshine Ink and watered down before painting all pieces of the tea cup. Once dry I put together according to the directions. I inked the Flower Rubber Stamp with ColorBox Archival Wicked Black Ink and stamped onto patterned cardstock the flower four times, fussy cut each flower out, slightly shaped before adhering together and adding two sequins to the center. Before gluing to the teacup I cut out a leaf from the Spring Leaves Diecut, I watered down Frog ColorBox Blends Ink and place the leaf into the mix and when almost dry I shaped the leaf with my hand and glued to the back of the leaf along with tulle and multi pastel colored thread. I added to the base of the tea cup mini flowers and a leaf sprig and there you have it!
