Winnie & Walter Rerun: Parentville Extras for Mother's Day

Hi Folks! Each month Winnie & Walter digs through the archives and selects an older stamp set to feature in this "Rerun" series. With Mother's Day right around the corner, and Father's Day coming shortly on her heels, the Parentville set is this month's featured set. I, of course, instead of reaching for the Parentville set, grab the Parentville Extras set and start stamping with it. Shay is so nice and does not at all make me feel like an idiot.  

For this card I used the Flawless Heart Cutaway to make a stencil. Then I stamped the modern woodgrain heart thought the stencil and filled it with several shades of yellow and orange from Catherine Pooler's new inks.

I then used the copy paper heart to cover the stamped hearts (like a mask) and sponged ink around the edges to make the larger heart stand out more. The "I love you Mother" is from Parentville Extras and "you mean the world to me" is from Sentimental: Love. Just love how these sentiments from different stamp sets go together so well.

Speaking of sentiments, I've been trying to pay attention to where I stamp them on the card in relation to other elements. The curl of the "M" cradles the tip of the heard, "I love you" is in between the heart and the "h" from "Mother," and the few tall scripted letters in "world" are stamped after the word "Mother."

I'm really liking one-layer cards recently (which this one is) and the challenge of making them.

While everything was out I pushed myself to make a second card. This one uses the same elements from the first card (yellow and orange woodgrain hearts, similar sentiment, and accents of green/blue. The hearts are stamped in a somewhat random pattern, with more of the intense colors in the bottom middle.

And lots of sequins always makes things better : ) For the heart that's tying in with the sentiment I cut an additional piece of foam tape to pop it up underneath. 

The panel is cut from Essentials: Noel Cutaways.

And there you have it! Two Mother's Day cards using essentially the same products.

  1. Beautiful cards, Kelly!!! I am so impressed with your one-layer card. Wow. I can't do those worth anything! What a creative use of the wonderful wood-grain hearts in those vibrant colors. ( are funny using the other Parentville set...but it is our gain, since Shay is including them both in the giveaway, now! Yay!!) I love how you did the ombre look with the hearts in the second card. So very pretty!! Thank you for sharing your inspiring cards!!
