Love to Mom's

Good evening!  What a great weekend.  I had the opportunity to attend my first crop weekend with a great group of ladies and had a blast.  While we got a lot done and had fun I have to admit that I'm still recovering from the lack of sleep.  While I was unpacking I decided to whip up a quick card for this weeks Stampin 411 challenge and new it would be perfect for Mother's day.

I started by running my Marina Mist card base through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder.  Then I used of DSP from the Greenhouse Gala DSP and matted on Early Espresso cardstock. I used the "mom" stamp from the Messages for Mom stamp set and stamped it with Early Espresso ink on Pear Pizzaz cardstock before matting it with Early Espresso cardstock.  I used dimensionals to pop up the Mom layer to add some dimension.

Next I added three Rhinestones and a bow tied with the Pear Pizzaz Seam Binding ribbon (so glad this color is carrying over from the last mini catalog).  Lots of sparkle and ribbon that mom is sure to love.  Finally "happy mother's day" is stamped at the bottom (I actually stamped it before running it through the Big Shot since I find it's easier.

Easy peasy and sure to please.  Now check out the sketch we were provided.  I love how versatile this layout is, I'll definately have to use it again.

Have a great week and for all you mom's Happy Mother's Day!

Happy stamping,

Pin It!
