Happy early mother’s day to my mother and to all mothers out there! It is not an easy job – but where would we be without you. This was not the card I planned to make for the big day, but with the clock ticking down, it is the card that I completed.
I am thrilled with the sentiment stamp – Amy R has a wonderful line of sentiments and this one came out last month. Yeah! I also tried out the stamp and die cut set by Sizzix and Hero Arts. I purchased it a while ago, but had not had the chance until now. I cannot believe how nice and close the dies cut out the stamped images – easy to line up! I do not have the set listed below, because there is no name on the set – only a number – 657776. I also used the stamp off technique (and then rolling just the edges of the stamp back into the ink) in order to create a multi toned flower with just one color ink. Making the rosette out of crepe paper was an interesting endeavor – I know there has to be an easier way to do it!
Anyway, please have a great weekend!
