Mom...It really is a Charmed Life

Some of my favorite memories and worst memories with mom are in the garden. (sometimes weed pulling felt like an excessive and endless chore) but harvesting was always the best time. So a Garden Lattice Card seemed like the perfect piece to create.



Some of my favorite memories and worst memories with mom are in the garden. (sometimes weed pulling felt like an excessive and endless chore) but harvesting was always the best time. So a garden lattice Card seemed like the perfect piece to create


For a quick overview of how the card came to be, it all started with Ice Resin. I was playing with the silicone molds from Prima, Vintage Art D├ęcor Mould - Baroque 2, and the Resin. Trying to form all kinds of pieces with different finishes. {this will be another post later, but let me tell you I had fun} I really liked the small piece, so I grabbed my Latte & Pesto Alcohol ink and inked it up.


I also used my lattice stencil (the pictures are of the woodgrain stencil that started this technique) and sprayed it with Pewter and Vintage Photo spray stains, tapped off the excess ink than flipped it over and pressed it on my cardstock with a paper towel so the ink would be pulled away from the open spaces.




Then I thought a climbing vine of Floral spray Charms would finish of the project for the 'It's a Charmed Life' Dare on right now.


The Floral Spray Charms and Iris Stamp, Plus a vertical word stamp I'm testing the fonts for stamping before I upload them all, are from the Emerald Creek Collections.

  5. Wow, Kim, there's a lot I love about this card! The background is sooo pretty, and I love the stencil technique you used--I'm going to give that a try! And those flowers look so "charming"at the top and trailing down the front. Your ice resin piece is gorgeous, and I can't wait for the tutorial on those! Fabulous make! Big hugs, my friend!

  6. Such a beautiful card, Kim! And isn't it strange that obviously the favourite and worst memories with our moms used to come from the same places? I found that too. Maybe this is because often the worst conflicts came to the surface in places or situations where we also felt the most love...xxx

    1. So true. But the part that amazes me is I love gardening and when I pull the weeds now it makes me happy. LOL
