For My Mum

Hello there, Mindscapers!

Long time, huh? Sorry, I’ve been kinda lazy.

Okay, really lazy!

Anyway, today is mother’s day! (That is if I manage to post this today)

Few days ago I made this card, inspired by one of the challenges and this card is for my mum.

Damn, I miss her. 😦

Before I start sobbing, let me quickly tell you about this card.

Titled “LOVE you”, this card was so, so fun to make and so quickly too!

Love you

The technique that I’ve used here is masking or stencilling.

The Stencils used here (The letters and the boxes to contain them) are 100% my brainchild and made by me.

I am so proud of myself.

Now, I really didn’t plan for this to be a tutorial post but I have few images here to show how the process went.

The materials I’ve used here are:

  • Some Post-It rolls for letters
  • Cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Ink Pads  (By Artistry. Orange Popsicle,   )
  • Printers paper for box stencil. (Pretty sure you can find better paper to work with.)
  • Pigma Microns

The images are rather self-explanatory so I will shut up now and let you go through it.

Tutorial 1



Tutorial 2

On the top, right-hand corner you can see the box “Stencil” I made to contain the colour around the letters. I don’t know if that makes sense but yeah.

Tutorial 3

Tutorial 4(1)

And this is the final look before adding the “you” sentiment using Pigma Micron pen and the embellishments.




So, this is it!


I have put up this card for following challenges:

Also, also, also, I had made another card using the stencilling technique for my dad’s birthday.

I hope you liked my cards and my post.

Did you know I have a Flickr account? Because I didn’t!

I spend the afternoon trying passwords and codes and what not to log into my Flickr account which I had apparently used a year ago!

  1. Fab example of masking. Your CAS card is so eye catching. Great choice of colours.
    Glad you dropped it onto our front porch at 613 Avenue Create this week.
