One Project at a Time

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to you all. We are off to visit with family and celebrate Mother’s Day with my mother-in-law, my niece’s birthday, my father-in-law’s birthday, and my brother-in-law’s birthday. Do events come in clusters in your family too? Do you think this means there will be four cakes? One can only hope!

Today I am sharing the card I made for my mother-in-law. The image is from my very first online coloring class at Kit and Clowder. I joined then because I love Power Poppy stamps, of which this is one called Camellias. I had fun coloring this image with my Copic markers and learning so much about shadowing and color blending. The classes are wonderful.

The camellias were printed out on Xpress-it Blending Card and had gray lines so they would disappear as the image was colored.









To make the Mother’s Day card, I first cut a panel using Spellbinders 5″ x 7″ Create-a-Card dies. The panel was then mounted onto a base of MFT Elf Green cardstock.



Because I love a little bling, I also added some sequins from 28 Lilac Lane Spring Butterflies and some Nuvo Jewel drops. I decided not to put a sentiment on the outside since the camellias were so large and I did not want to take away from their impact.











For the inside, I used the 5″ x 7″ Spellbinders Elegant Labels 4 to cut an MFT Smooth White panel and sponged the edges with Tim Holtz Oxide Inks.



The sentiments is from Concord & 9th Happy Words set and was stamped in MFT Elf Green ink.







It’s about time for me to get ready to go a-visiting. I am so pleased you stopped by today, and I hope you will come back soon. I am working on something that is a totally different style for me and includes glitter, texture paste and a gazillion Copic colors. I sure have been making a mess, but it’s good to get outside one’s comfort zone occasionally, don’t you think?


Have a great spring day.
