Hello stamping friends, it’s Carrie Rhoades here today. I am so excited to be up on the Scrapbook Pal blog and YouTube channel. Today I am featuring the Mom + Me stamp set by Lawn Fawn. This is a great stamp set for Mother’s Day, but also fun to send an uplifting card to a mom. You could even make a card as a Mom to give to your child. Lawn Fawn did not leave the Dad’s out, there is also the Dad + Me stamp set. I will link both for you below.
For today’s card I had the idea to make a Pull Tab card. In the Mom + Me stamp set there is a stump for the critters to sit on. I thought it would be fun to put the stump on the pull tab and when you pull the tab there are little bugs under it. Something that a little kid would love to see and so I thought it would be a fun surprise element on this card.
First let’s take a look at the card with the stump all the way down.
I have used several images from the Mom + Me stamp set. My youngest daughter has had a thing for owls most of her life, so she said I had to use the owls for this card. There are also foxes in this set that would be super cute on this card as well.
I used the new Cloudy and Grassy stencils from Lawn Fawn to create the background. I love the stenciled grass behind the stump and the die cut grass in front of the stump, it really gives it a 3D look. To add to that look I added some stamped and die cut grass and flowers from the set.
In the sky I added some butterflies, heart and the scripty word, Mom. To finish off my sentiment I white embossed “Owl always love you” on the die cut grass.
And when you pull the tab.....
You get a peek underground and all the little bugs that live under the stump. These three bugs
are from the new stamp set, A Bug Deal by Lawn Fawn. One of my new favorite sets.
You can see that under the stump, it is brown. I did some masking so that I could make this area brown, for the look of dirt under the stump. I attached the owls to the stump and then attached that to the pull tab so they both move up and down when you pull the tab.
You can see the making of this card in this video:
Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Stamping!
