One For Mom, One For Dad

Hello, Chupa again with two more cards and an inspiration for Mother's Day and Father's Day alike!

First up, a  one-layer with a fussy cut floral accent, using the beautiful Spring Blooms and Strictly Sentiments 4. I stamped the foliage on Kraft Cardstock, first with Lake House Dye Ink and then over-stamped with White Pigment Ink, while stamping the second time a little bit offset to give the images depth.

The petals of the flowers were "sugared" with a coating of glitter glue, die cut with the Spring Blooms Die and mounted with dimensionals with the petals curled up just slightly.

The sentiment was simply stamped in black, the fancy font is a stand-out and is all the card needs to take it to the next level.

Stamps: Spring Blooms, Strictly Sentiments 4 // Inks: Lake House Dye Ink, White Pigment Ink // Dies: Spring Blooms Die // Cardstock: Kraft

Next up, is a rad card for a dad! It started by stamping some Ink Splats on Oatmeal Cardstock panel, with various Dye Inks: Appletini, Nautical Navy, Silver Lining and Wild Mango.

Then I die cut the shadow 'dad' shape with the Epic Dad Die and stamped the sentiment from Epic Dad over the splats.

I mounted the panel on the card front and over some freely arranged patterned papers, and fitted the die cut sentiment back in, only using a flat adhesive instead of foam tape and thus creating dimension.

Then I cut the crown with the Epic Dad Die from glitter cardstock, stamped the 'you're swag' sentiment from Epic Dad on a scrap piece of cardstock, cut out and mounted on the panel.

It was great to 'see' you again, tune up tomorrow for some more inky fun!


  1. I love the overstamped white on Lake House leaves technique! I always have trouble getting white ink to show up and this looks totally doable! Great idea, Chupa.

  2. those colors on the kraft are so lovely!

  3. Your Mother's Day card is a beauty and your Dad card is a really fun guy card!
