Mother's Day Greetings


Sorry I've been so absent... I've been very very busy with workshops and clubs and trying to prepare for this show. I'm excited as I don't really do too many shows and this is a really big one. But I promise to be more blog conscience as well.


I've been doing a lot of mother's day cards at my clubs and workshops. Here is a card with my favorite set Always that uses some of the new In Colors-- River Rock and Groovy Guava. For the focal point of this card, I stamped the heart in River Rock and then used a Q-tip to highlight part of the image (on the stamp) with Groovy Guava (since we don't have markers in the In-Colors :-(. Then I cut the heart out, just inside the dotted line. Then I re-stamped the heart in Chocolate chip and mounted one on top of the other with dimmensionals. I used the fun Build-a-brads to make the Always embellishment. I can't get enough of the Build-a-brads. The layers of Ginger Blossom paper at the top and Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon finish off the card.

The colors on this are so soft and smoothing. Congrats to being so busy with workshops and on your big show coming up. I love the ribbon treatment on this card. Very pretty.
