Happy Mother's Day with A Mothers Flair

Hello and Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderful mothers out there! It's mothers that make the world go round for sure! I am especially grateful for my own mother and blessed to still have her. I understand this can be an especially difficult day for those missing their moms and for that I truly am sorry.
Today, I want to share with you the card I presented to my mom this afternoon. I made it using the awesome, A Mothers Flair stamp set. I love the simple images in this set and think it is really a great set to mix up sentiments with to create birthday and just because cards for the special women in your life, not just Mother's Day
...but in honor of today, it is a Mother's Day card. To create this card, I started with a standard card base of Basic Black cut 4.25" x 11" scored and folded at 5.5" and I cut a second piece of Basic Black 4" x 5.25" and ran it through the Big Shot with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing folder.
I added a piece of the Petal Passion DSP cut 3" x 4" and adhered that to the bottom of the embossed piece and wrapped a piece of Berry Burst woven ribbon around the seam and tied a bow. I then adhered the panel to the card base. I then stamped the image onto a piece of Whisper White with Basic Black Archival ink and colored in the flower with the Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist Stampin' Write markers. I cut it out using the Layering Ovals and I cut out a scalloped oval from a scrap of Berry Burst cardstock to layer. I popped these up with Stampin' Dimensionals and added a rhinestone to the flower center. To complete the card I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White measuring .5" x 3" and I bannered both ends and added it to the front of the card using more Stampin' Dimensionals. And for a finishing touch. I added a piece of the DSP to the envelope flap. I hope you enjoyed today's card. I'm off to pack my bags as tomorrow I am heading off to Mobile, Al on hospital related business. I'll be back Wednesday, so until then Happy Stamping!

Keep That Old Eyeshadow!

Hello again, well I'm so excited! My pre-order from the new catalog is finally on its way! It finally shipped this afternoon and should be here next Thursday....I made a mistake and did not adjust my shipping to express insert sad sad face! So, now I must practice impatiently being patient lol. 
Anyway, today I want to show you a card that I did using some old eyeshadow I had laying around. That's right, I said eyeshadow! So, while doing your Spring cleaning, should you come across any old eyeshadow, rather than throw it out, haul it off to your craft room!
To accomplish this technique, you will need an embossing pigment ink like Versamark, a stamp of choice (I used the Swallowtail by Stampin' Up! Which happens to be on the retirement list) some eyeshadow and either sponges or a brush to apply the shadow. (Cotton swabs will also work)
To begin, ink up the stamp and stamp the image onto your cardstock. Then begin applying the eyeshadow by brushing or sponging the color over the stamped image. Once you've applied all of the color and you are happy with your coverage, take a clean facial tissue and rub the image to remove any losse eyeshadow powder. This also seems to help the color adhere better to the ink. In this example, I stamped the Best mother ever verse from the Stampin' Up! set And Many More using Versamark ink and heat embossing with white embossing powder onto Basic Black cardstock scrap, bannered the end using the retiring Banner punch and adhered it using glue dots. 
I hope you enjoyed today's project and if you have any questions please ask. In the meantime, share with me in the comments below which stamp set or tool you are most sad to see go that is on the retirement list?
Have a great day and happy stamping!
