Super Mom

We all know one....we all love one....we all aspire to be one!

This card will be entered into the Challenges at; Altenew and Simon Says Wednesday, Add A Die.

Here's what I created!

I used the Magnolias For Her Altenew stamp and die set.
I knew I wanted to water color them, there is just something about Altenew florals and water color!  I just used Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry and Peeled Paint, so easy!

I used the PTI Mix And Mat Flourishes die for my backdrop.  I backed it with that pretty shade of green/grey to match the Inspiration Photo.  My card base was also spritzed with Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Blush.  Sentiment heat embossed in Gold Powder on to a little Vellum strip.  Rhinestones and Sequins for pretty accents.  Plus the Rhinestones hide my Glue Dots which hold my Vellum in place.  

Love the depth and dimension!

This will be going out to a rather fabulous Super Mom I know and love.  

Happy Birthday To You


Another birthday card to share with you today, you can never have enough on hand!

This will be entered into the Challenges at; Power Poppy, Love To Sparkle and Simon Says Wednesday, Add A Die Cut.

Again, I was in a coloring kind of mood!

I used the Power Poppy stamp set; Short Stacks
This is one of my most favorite images to color.
Copic Markers.
Itty Bitty Flower Sequins in Yellow.

The Grid Frame is by Simon Says. 
I cut from Yellow card stock and backed it with Black so it would POP!  I also backed it with Fun Foam so the colored image could nestle inside of it.  It adds quite a bit of dimension in this manner.

Images, inside and out, coated with WOS to sparkle and shine.  
VERY difficult to capture on camera.  You can see a little bit on the bottom package.

Nope, not from this angle either......but it is there!

Thanks for stopping by!

Piano Easel Card

Good Morning!

My Mom will be turning 88 this May so I have been playing with Birthday Card ideas.  88....hmmm doesn't a piano have 88 keys?  Although she did not play the piano she did play the organ.  This may work....I am sure I will have to explain the connection, but that is part of my Mother's Charm lol

This card will be entered into the Challenges at; Stamp TV, The Envelope PleaseScrapy Land, Anything Goes and Simon Says Wednesday, Add A Die.

I found this video on how to make this particular card from Pinterest, you can watch it HERE.

Doesn't look like much here.....but wait for it......

Here it is starting to take shape.  I used the Gina K Designs products;
Massive Messages, Spring Parade, Simple Hearts and Just A Note.
Inks in, Raven Black, Pink Pirouette

Cheery Lynn Small Gardenia and Ivy Corner Flourish--cropped.
Yellow Bead Flower Center.
Plenty of room to write my loving message.

Amy Design Musical Stave die.
Spellbinders Label 8 die.

Decorated the envie with stamps and Washi Tape.

Added a Musical Note Designer Paper Liner.

Stamped Musical Notes and a bit more Washi Tape.

It does make for a lovely set.

This will go into the Mom Birthday Card pile, will it make the cut? 
You'll have to wait and see!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
