CHECK OUT EVENT NEWS at the bottom of the page! How are you this fine Tuesday morning? We have just had too incredibly hot days for April...we hit the 90's. It is also a ColourQ morning. The challenge over on the ColourQ has us using these colors, Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral, Pretty in Pink, Old Olive and white. Arielle loved this dress...what pretty colors! check out the other designers and the challenge and play along this week. I so love visiting your blogs!
This card is fairly simple, I used a soft pink card base, and matted it with white cs. I stamped the flowers in Cameo Coral several times, fussy cut and layered them. I used them as a guide so I could stamp a background. I used my markers to ink the smaller flower stamp, then stamped and stamped off. I stamped and cut out leaves and glued them to the front of the card. I added the "Mom" sentiment and last I used the embossing folder and hammered the tiny dots. I always do this last, it doesn't hurt to stick the mat inside with everything on it as you are only hammering the areas you want embossed.
I colored in the flower centers in Pretty In Pink and added Autumn Sunset sequins from my Etsy shop. They match well with the Pumpkin Pie ink. I used all the colors when I stamped the smaller flowers and leaves. I have always loved the pink and orange together and I love this combo as well! Have a beautiful Tuesday, I hope you find a lot of time to craft!
Event news!!!!Although I did not find the event last night overwhelmingly exciting, the catalog is fabulous and we got a free stamp set for going. You must remember if you don't know...I am not really into big events, but to be at the first live screening of a catalog is exciting! Happy Tuesday, I will be using the new set and looking at the catalog today1
