Happy Birthday, Mom!!
Hello my Crafting Friends!
Seems like 2021 is going to bring more challenges for me than 2020 did, which has kept me off my blog and off my game. For that, I am sorry. Fortunately, I did find a little time to create this card for my mom’s birthday and I thought it would be a great addition to the new blog hop I joined. It is still new, so there are only 3 of us participating in it right now, but we hope to grow as time goes on!
The blog hop is for National “Fill in the Blank” Days. Each month, we’ll pick a day of that month that is celebrated by someone somewhere for whatever reason, then make a card with the stamp set of our choice to honor that day. I chose Nation Umbrella Day because it just so happened to be on my Mom’s birthday! 😃
I used the Under My Umbrella Stamp set from the Annual Catalog with the Hey Girlfriend Stamp set from the new January to June Mini Catalog. I stamped the umbrella image on Calypso Coral card stock with Calypso Coral Stampin’ Pad and punched it out using the Umbrella Builder punch and let our cute little girl hold on to it for us. I colored her using the Stampin’ Blends to match the cardstock. I thought the Oh So Ombre DSP from the Sale-A-Bration catalog would be the perfect accent paper, looking like little rain drops, and then added some background rain drops on some Bermuda Bay card stock using a Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Pad. I added the Rhinestones to give it some glam and finished off with a cute little sentiment.
This card really came together pretty easy because I knew my mom’s favorite colors, the idea behind the card, and the occasion it was going to be used for. For me, that’s the easiest way to get creative. When I’m just making a card for a blog, it takes me a bit to figure out a design. There’s no love behind it. When you’re creating a card, it always feels more authentic if you’ve got someone in mind. Try making cards in advance so that they represent the people you are planning on giving them to, even if you make it a year out.
