CS Take It Make It: Take a Stamp Inspiration Photo

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our CS Take It Make It: Take a Stamp Challenge Inspiration Photo!!!

This month’s theme is Take a Stamp!!  That means take any stamp and create something, anything goes!! Now if that isn’t easy, I’m not sure what is!!

Mother’s Day is this Sunday.  Happy Mother’s Day to all of you who are mother’s, mothers-to-be, and who are mother figures to others.

Take a look at my card:

Thank You Mom

I decided to create a CAS Mother’s Day card for my mother to inspire you to take a stamp, any stamp to create your project for Mother’s Day!!

Don’t you just love these bears from Mama Elephant called Bear Hugs.  This mama bear really shows her cub that she loves them. The eye to eye contact is an amazing feature with this stamp set!

I decided to keep my mother’s card very, very clean and simple.

Here’s how:

1. I stamped my bears on a watercolor card panel using Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink.

Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink is a waterproof ink so it won’t bleed when I watercolor. 

2. I used my new Akashiya Sai Watercolor Brush Pen Set to watercolor the bears and the ground.

I love these watercolor pens.  They are super vibrant and moves well with water. I love how the bears looks like they have texture. 

3. I stamp the “thank you”, from Mama Elephant Bear Hugs stamp set.

4. I stamped the “mom”, from WPLUS9 Love Mom stamp set.

5. I was going to add some sequin to the card panel but I decided to leave it without it.

6. I attached my card panel to the card base with a piece of fun foam.

Super simple and easy.  I used 3 different stamp sets and so can you!!

We have two prizes to offer this month, the first is our sponsor prize. This winner will be chosen randomly from all of the entries in the challenge! The sponsor for May is: WOW! Embossing Powders.

This winner will have their winning project published in Craft Stamper Magazine, they will have a GDT slot for an upcoming challenge, and will also feature in their very own Winners Profile blog post!

Now if that isn’t a reason to play along I’m not sure what is!!

I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
