An Open Heart for Mother’s Day


Oh, how I love this soon-to-be-retired stamp set called An Open Heart!  It’s just perfect for so many occasions!  I’m posting this today as a Mother’s Day card idea; as a mom, I can’t imagine any more touching sentiment to receive from your child!  But also think anniversary or sympathy cards.

        • Stamping on designer paper is one of my favorite looks.  I’ve used the Farmers Market Designer Series Paper here.  This packet surprises me all the time.  At first look, all you see is fruit and vegetables, but the flip side are some of the nicest neutral papers!  This paper pack is also due to be retired.
        • I doubt that there’s a bird that is colored this way in “real life” but of course as stampers, we have to match our cardstock theme, right?!  I’m also honoring our retiring In Colors – Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon and Mossy Meadow (used as the thin border behind the designer paper).  Watercolor paper is definitely the choice to feature this pretty bird and watercoloring with the Aqua Painter and stamp pads.  Circle Framelits create the backdrop; another retiring product!
        • Also retiring are the Antique Brads – I’ve loved working with these pretty accents!
        • As I created this card, a robin is building her nest right outside my window, busy carrying all sorts of plant material and tucking it in place.  It reminded me of the Linen Thread tied around my card – the perfect texture for a natural look.
        • I swear I won’t every be able to get rid of my Envelope Liner Framelits, even though they’re retiring.  They give such a perfectly coordinated card and really hits it home on the creativity.  Be sure to pick up yours if you don’t already own them – they are truly a “must have” for all of your cards!
