Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Stampendous Blog Hop: Hello Mom Card Tutorial

I am thrilled to be part of this Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®/Stampendous® Blog Hop today on Day 5! My card can be used as a Mother's Day card or just to say "Hello" to mom :) It has dimension and I only colored the die cuts as I wanted to showcase them on the card front.

Using the largest stamp, I stamped on the right side of 5 x 7" Kraft card base to create the background.

To achieve those colors, I took a piece of mixed media paper and started to different colors of Design Memory Craft® Gelatos®. I blended using a water mister and a little bit of baby wipes for my desired look. Pinks and Purples for flowers and Greens and Blues for the birds.

After the colors dried, I placed the Cling Hummingbirds Stamp Set from Stampendous® on my stamp placement tool and stamp with black ink. Place the coordinating die from Hummingbirds Die Set over the stamped image and secure with repositionable tape. Went through my manual die cutting machine. Repeat a few times to get your desired number of die cuts.

Then I adhered the flower die cuts using a combination of 3D Foam Squares White Regular, White Small and Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6" to create dimension. Lastly, I added the humming bird die cut by stacking two 3D Foam Squares for extra height.

For the finishing touches, I applied E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser on a couple of the flowers and pressed in Spring Micro Glitter Kit (purples & pinks for flowers and green for the bird). Then I added mini letter stickers to customize my sentiment, tie Girlie Grunge Twine in Natural and it's ready to be sent to mom!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! If you do, I welcome you to become a follower on my blog :)
