My Mommy & MeHi Stamping Friends!

I'm a little sad today. Just thinking about My Mommy on the anniversary of her passing.  I can't believe that she's been gone for 7 years…how can that be?! 

My Mommy continues to have a lot influence on my stamping business to this day!  You can read more about how she inspired me create Too Cool Stamping at my It's All About The Pants blog post.

Love you and miss you so much, Mom.

Soft sky & rose red - two cool

Today, I'm sharing a third project from my Painted Petals Stamp-of-the-Month Class coming up on March 12.  Registration deadline for the local class and Class-To-Go kits is one week from today, February 25, 2015! 

Soft sky roses - family 

CASEd from Julie Kettlewell at Julie's Japes.

Card Base—I started with a Soft Sky card base and, for a little extra interest, I rounded the outer edge corners of the card base with the Project Life Corner Rounder Punch. 

Background Layer—Rather than just stamping on the card base, I created a 4" x 5-1/4" Soft Sky second layer for the background.  I stamped diagonally across it with the Painted Petals cluster of flowers in matching Soft Sky ink. Before adhering the Soft Sky layer, I rounded the outer corners just like the card base and sponged around all the edges with a hint of Soft Sky ink.  It gives the layer just a little definition that I really like.

Focal Point—Starting with a 4" x 2-1/2" piece of Whisper White, I stamped the flower stems in Wild Wasabi on the bottom left, then added Rose Red roses on the top.  I especially love the look of dots border stamp on this element.  I stamped it in Soft Sky ink on one side of the stems, and then the other. 

Sweet Sentiment—The greeting is inked in contrasting Blackberry Bliss.  Isn't it such a cool, refreshing color combination with that pop of dark purple?!  So pretty!

Finishing Touches—I matted the stamped layer onto a piece of 4" x 2-3/4" Blackberry Bliss card stock, then popped up the whole element with Dimensionals.  Finally, I added a cute bow created from the Soft Sky Painted Blooms Cotton Twine. You'll receive the Painted Blooms twine 3-pack, along with the Painted Petals stamp set, in the Painted Blooms 5-card class kit.

Two Cool—My second version has all of the same basic elements on a horizontal card base.  The diagonal background flowers, the rounded corners and sponging are all the same.

I changed up my border stamp, giving me some room for stamping a second set of flowers.  I wanted that second pair to be down a little bit so the flowers were a little more staggered, but I misstamped.  If you select the photopolymer style, you won't have any problems lining them up.  I'm kicking myself for not choosing those all-clear stamps! 

Rather than a bow, I tied the Painted Blooms around the element and tied it in a double knot.

Quick, simple and cute…just how I like it!

  1. Beautiful cards and beautiful story about your Mommy. My Mom has been gone since 1992 and while some days it seems like it was just yesterday, when I see the date of 1992 I realize it’s been nearly “forever” ago.
    I love that you named your blog and “Too Cool” and often wondered where it came from, now I know.
    Keep Mommy in your work and in your heart.
