Well hello there, Roadies! Its Ashlea, and I’m here to share a bit of a different card with you. I created this card using the Boymom stamp set and the Bloom Where You Are Planted set. It isn’t one of my typical card designs but when I saw the sentiments in the set I knew that moms everywhere, whether mom of boys or girls or both, could all relate. So this is for you, mom. Cause I get it. Seriously.
For the background, I used the solid flower and leaf stamps from the Bloom Where You Are Planted set with Catherine Pooler Inks in Rose Petals, Sugared Lavender, Eucalyptus, Seafoam and Stone Blue. After stamping them all around, I used the fine tip of a black Tombow dual brush pen to create the small polka-dots throughout the stamped images. I knew this card would be mostly sentiments on black card stock strips so I wanted to add black into the stamped pattern and this was a great and simple way to do that.
For the sentiments I decided to go with the ones that we can all relate to. Zingers like “I used to be cool” and “leggings are pants” really speak to me as a person. I really was cool back in the day. And leggings are pants, okay?! Don’t get me started. I also went for PSL because caffeine, “he farted” cause it’s hysterical, “mom hair”, a little poop emoji and finally #momlife there at the bottom to wrap it all up.
It was kind of a no brainer that I would make a pretty and girly patterned card front with these brash and hilarious sentiments because it sort of wraps us moms up perfectly, doesn’t it? We can be pretty. We like nice things. Just most of the time we’re too busy screaming “go to the bathroom” or “stop that!” or asking “what did I just say?!” to make any sort of effort. And really, that’s okay. But don’t lose yourself, mama. Remember, you’ve GOT this and you’re worth your time too. Thank you so much for stopping by today! I am SO excited to see what you all make with this set. These sentiments are TOO good to pass up. I’ll see you soon!
