Celebrating Moms


Mother's Day is a week from today so I thought today would be a great day to celebrate all moms and share some last minute card ideas!  You can get all of these Technique Junkies products at a 10% discount with code TJ10LeeAnn. 

This first card was really fun to make.  I started with white cardstock and a A Colorful Life stencil- Scribble Roses-, sponging a beautiful rose background in pink.  I stamped the roses from the Faith, Hope and Love Stamp Set, colored with Copics using the no line technique and then fussy cut out.  I also stamped the image in Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold ep and fussy cut the leaves out.
The image panel is die cut.  To assemble, I added some washi tape, a cardstock pink banner and the roses as well as a set of gold embossed leaves.  I stamped the sentiment from the All the Moms Stamp Set. using my MISTI to get perfect placement. 
The next card uses the Itoh Peonies Stamp Set.

While the first card came together easily, this one was a constant work in progress.  It did not turn out how I expected it to initially, so kept altering things until I was happy with the results.  The peonies were stamped on navy cs then colored with Prismacolor Pencils.  I was not happy with the overall look, so fussy cut out the main peony.  I stamped the image a second time, this time on newsprint designer paper. I then cut out the petals/flowers that frame the purple flower and assembled the whole thing on some purple cs.  The sentiment is from the All the Moms Stamp Set.  A scalloped cardstock strip and a baker's twine bow were added to finish of the card.  The sentiment is from the All the Moms Stamp Set

That's it for me.  Wishing all the moms out there a very Happy Mother's Day!  And Hopefully a Crafty one too!
