CARDS, Stampin' UP

To Grandma’s House We Go!

It’s my Mom’s birthday today, and I was planning on giving this card to her from my boys. I made the card with that intent, but I ended up sending her another card instead. So, now I’m thinking I will save it for her for another day…”just because”. I think it’s always nice to get a card for no particular reason except that someone was thinking about you.

I used a lot of SU stamps for this one. I have loved the All in the Family set since the first day I looked at an SU catalog! I finally bought it, with my discount, since I’m a demo now! I also bought the Family Accessories set and the Family Phrases!

I really wanted to do a scene with the set and this is what I came up with. The card is folded into three sections. It measures 3 1/4 inches wide by 6 1/4 inches tall. I use my circle cutting system to cut away the tops of the front two panels to get the sloping landscape.

The first shortest panel is sponged in Wild Wasabi, stamped with the flower from Family Accessories and another flower from Inkadinkado.

The second tallest panel is stamped in two corners with the little summer tree from A Tree For All Seasons.

The main panel is stamped using the Neighborhood jumbo wheel, an inkadinkado flower, and the kids are pieced together using the stamps from All in The Family. The little boy is holding the flower from the accessories set.

All the images were coloured using SU inks and blender pens. I used a white gel pen for the windows of the houses. The path was created using Kelly Panacci stitch stamps. They are clear stamps so I was able to curve it a bit on the acrylic block and stamp it twice for the length of the card. I then sponged in the path. I left out the sentiment, since I wasn’t sure if it was going to say Happy Mother’s Day or Happy Birthday, since for my mom, they are a day apart this year. Which in the end was just as well since I didn’t use it for either!

Inks- Wild Wasabi, Summer Sun, Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green, Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Ruby Red, Certainly Celery

I had so much fun creating this little scene!

Hope you like it too!

Have a good day everyone!
