Hello and welcome! It's Angie here today featuring one the brand new stamp sets in the May 2018 release called "Mother's Day Love". Here's a look at the new set:
Even though this set is a Mother's Day set, you can use it for many type of cards, NOT just Mother's Day! I plan to use it a lot for sending encouraging cards to family and friends!
I used it to make a card for one of my grandchildren - they really do give the best hugs!
Above you can see I stamped the bears and sentiment, then masked off a square to ink the sky and grass with Distress Oxide Inks. I had stamped a mask for the bears our of Post-It note paper before inking too. Below you can see some of the colors of Zigs I used to color the image and the black frame I cut with an MFT pinked edge die and another plain square die.
I originally planned to use the white card that I inked and stamped as a one layer card with the black frame glued around the image and then decided it was too plain.
So I dry embossed a kraft piece with a We R Memories Heart embossing folder, cut it down a little, and attached it to a white card base. Then I popped up the framed image on foam tape and added twine and a thick red heart as you can see below.
And here's a final look at my "You give the best hugs" card made with Joy Clair stamps!
