Tuesday Trigger: Simple Elegance

Hello Again!

Did you all enjoy your weekend?  I got to spend some time crafting and I couldn’t resist creating a card for the current Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger: Simple Elegance.

Isn’t this photo absolutely stunning?  I love those soft natural colours and with the splash of pink it’s just such a gorgeous and inviting scene.

With Mother’s Day here in Australia coming up in May, I decided to create a card for my mum inspired by the photo’s pretty colours.  Nothing says Mother’s Day more than flowers so I created a floral scene on my card which also fits with the current Hero Arts March Challenge: Fabulous Flowers.

Supplies: Hero Arts Stamps (Stencil Art (CL386), Happy Mom’s Day (CL334) & Bold Pop Designs (657851)), Hero Arts Digital Stamps (The Patterns – Arches), Hero Arts: Hero Hues Chalk Ink (Latte (AF184)), Hero Arts Shadow Ink (Soft Blossom (AF147)), Hero Arts Mid-Tone Shadow Ink (Bubble Gum (AF208)), Cardstock (Plain White), Shabby Crinkled Ribbon (Antique Linen) and Kaisercraft Adhesive Pearls (Snow).

I created the background of the card using the earth coloured digital stamp from the new Hero Arts digital kit called The Patterns – Arches, which I printed onto white cardstock.  I then stamped the flourishes and a flower onto a smaller piece of cardstock before adhering it to my card.  Next I stamped the larger dot flower onto some more cardstock and die cut it out using its matching die.  Finally I adhered the flower to my card, embellished it with adhesive pearls, added some crinkled ribbon and then stamped my sentiment.

Well that’s it from me for today, but I will be back in the next day or so with another card to share.

Have a fantastic day!
