Just for You

Hello, today I finally had some time to post a card on my blog and play along with some challenges. I started off with some DP from the  basic grey indian summer collection. This is one of my favorite collections. I layered it on Gina K Designs Pure Luxury card stock. My stamp is a studio G ditto collection cling stamp. I inked it up with my colorbox chalk cateyes in olive pastel, dark peony, and yellow citrus. I love how this image turned out.  I cut it out with my nesties labels 20 and distressed it with memento angel pink ink. I added some ruffled ribbon behind my diecut and placed some buttons with some cappuccino twine bows. I used my stampin up word window punch to stamp my sentiment on. This was a fun to card to make. I played along with these challenges:

One Stop Craft Challenge- Button and Bows

Happy Mother's Day

Good Morning! Its another rainy spring day here in virgina. On the bright side it is great card making weather. Today I made a card for my wonderful mom. I started off with a sketch from papertake weekly. I used stampin up cardstock and then layered a pieced of Melissa Frances DP. I layered one strip of pink gingham paper and then on the green stampin up Dp I used an impression obsession floral stamp for the background image. I layered one more strip of pink gingham with hero arts ivory lace on top and then used my bigshot and my nestabilities labels 10 for the die cut. I stamped "mom" from the stampin up set called messages for mom. I bought this set last year and forgot to use it. So I was determined to get it out and get some ink on it this year.  I popped up the die cut with scotch foam. I placed a glue dot in the left hand corner and added 3 pink roses, love those. I added fruit punch stickles to my floral image and the sentiment is from inkindinkado. I disteressed all my pieces lightly with memento rich cocoa ink. I am entering this card in a few challenges:
