Hi everyone! I'm so glad you stopped by for Satur-YAY! We are celebrating the weekend by getting our craft on. There's no better way to spend your weekend. Am I right?
Today I'm going to be making a few Mothers Day cards using Tonic Nuvo Embellishment Mousse and some stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn.
I thought it would be fun to create my own custom color of Nuvo Mousse. I used the Mother of Pear and Aquamarine colors to create a beautiful, aqua minty green color. This mousse has a beautiful pearlescent sheen to it and dries instantly on your cardstock when applied with a cloth, your finger or a brush. You can cover an entire piece of card stock to create your own custom pearly card stock, or just use it on a portion of your card stock like I did.
I'll show you how I created my own custom color in the video tutorial below. I'll also give you a few different ways to apply the Nuvo Mousse to your project to create different looks, including a shimmery watercolor effect. All of these different methods of application will give you a slightly different look. Be sure to check out the video tutorial below. I'll walk you through all of that.
I'm using Lawn Fawn's Fab Flowers and Happy, Happy, Happy stamp and die sets. These fun and funky flowers make stamp layering easy. And the Happy, Happy, Happy stamp set has a greeting for almost any occasion.
I finished the cards off with a frame die cut from real wood paper and a little shine with the Sparkling Clear Confetti Mix from Pretty Pink Posh.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you've enjoyed these projects and I hope I've inspired you to get in your craft room and create something this weekend! If you do, I'd love to see what you create. Share it on Instagram using #EllenHutsonSaturYAY so I can check it out. Until next time, happy crafting and I hope you have a fabulous day!
