Happy Mother's Day Mom

My second card today was created for the AAA Cards Challenge. To create my card I started by cutting a piece of white cardstock down slightly smaller than my card base. I prepped the cardstock with my EK Success powder tool and then stamped the beautiful mandala image onto the paper using Versamark clear ink. I then coated the panel with Recollections snow white embossing powder. I heat set the panel and then inked it using Tim Holtz distress ink in picked raspberry. I wiped the panel down with a clean baby white to get the ink off of the white embossing. I then cut down a piece of vellum that I got at my local Hobby Lobby. I prepped it with the same powder tool. I stamped the sentiment using Versafine onyx black ink and Concord & 9th's Sophisticated Script stamp set. Once stamped I covered the panel with some Recollections clear embossing powder and heat set it. I glued both panels down to the card base and added some 6mm sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. The inside of the card reads, " Good Job Mom. Happy Mother's Day!" My mom loved it!

Cupcake Birthday

Hello, and happy Sunday! Today's card was created for the latest Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge. To create my card I started by layering a piece of pink ombre swiss dot patterned paper from the Jen Hadfield Home Made 6x6 pattern paper pad onto my white card base. I then stamped the adorable three tiered tray of cupcakes from the Unity Stamp Company Unexpected Places kit of the month onto some white Copic-friendly paper using Memento tuxedo black ink and colored the image using my alcohol markers. I then fussy cut the image out and inked around the edges using my dual tip Memento marker. I adhered an adorable 4" doily from Sunny Side Up Bakery onto my card and then added the cupcake image by popping it up using Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the same kit of the month stamp set onto the card and to finish it off I added some sparkle with some pretty sequins from Neat & Tangled and some Stickles in pink. I hope you like it!

Happy Birthday Gorgeous!

Today's card was created for my good friend Freda's birthday. She's a great friend, an awesome workout partner, and an all around beautiful lady! She absolutely loves Harley Quinn and I wanted to create a card with that same feel. So, I started by stamping the Stampotique Moth Fab girl onto some Copic-friendly cardstock. I colored her to look like Harley and then fussy cut her out. Using my Windows program on my computer I created the sentiment and printed it out onto some plain white cardstock. I then distressed the background panel using distress inks in squeezed lemonade, broken china, worn lipstick, and black soot and some fun stencils from TCW and Tim Holtz to create a nice grungy look. I popped my stamped image up off of the card using some 3M foam tape and added some shimmer to her using my Sakura Gelly Roll clear glitter pen. I mounted the entire panel to some Stampin' UP black cardstock and mounted that directly to my white card base. Thank you for visiting my blog today. I know Freda will love her card!
