Enough of that... Let's take a look at the cards...
I whipped up this card yesterday afternoon. I had purchased some of the Melon Mambo DP and I don't think that I've used it, til now.
I stamped the image from Memories of the Heart. It's an old set that a goodie ~ I think that it's perfect for Mother's Day. I stamped the image and used my watercolor crayons to color it in. I cut it out and used some stickles on the flowers and set it aside while I put the rest of the card together. I took a light pink piece of linen card stock and layered the Melon Mambo DP on top of it. I took my nesties Labels Nine and cut out a piece of the pink linen card stock and stamped the word "Mom" in Rose Red ink and attached it to the card. Once that panel was adhered I attached a length of organdy ribbon and attached the whole panel to the card front. By then the stickles was dry on the flowers and I attached the image to the front of the card. I finished off the inside and I was complete.
I'm still not sure about this card. I love the flowers in the Full Bloom set - I've used them a lot for various things, but I'm still not sure about this card.
The base card is Pink Pirouette (I'm so GLAD that this color is coming back!!) and I layered it with Pretty in Pink and some Georgia Peach DP. I added a piece of ribbon that was in my scraps because it has the same colors as the Georgia Peach DP. I stamped the swirl from Judikins in Close to Cocoa ink directly on the DP. I then took a piece of Blush Blossom paper and crumpled it and inked the edges, also with Close to Cocoa ink and adhered it to the card. I stamped the images from the In Full Bloom set and colored them in with my watercolor crayons and added that panel to the card over the Blush Blossom panel. I also stamped 3 more and colored them in and cut them out and pop dotted them on to the card a little offset from the others. I stamped the word "Mom" in the lower left corner and a little stickles to the flowers and I was complete.
A lot of times I will stamp an image and if I can I will look for it online and provide a link to it just in case you would like to see where they are offered ~ however the Mom, Mother's Day and the swirl stamps that I've used in these cards are no longer available that I can tell. The Happy Mothers Day stamp that I used inside these cards I did find on EBay, but I felt a little weird posting that link for the benefit of someone who I don't know.
I will try to come back later today and show you another card... So, see you later!!
