Mum's Love 'For You' Card

by Joanne James21. February 2015 21:37

Finally I'm back with the program! Apologies for my lack of blog posts over the last few days; it has been a busy half term holiday week with the children at home and whilst we have had a fun week and I had a couple of classes too, I've had little opportunity for stamping and blogging. Anyway, what better way to get back into it than to enter this week's Mojo Monday challenge where the talented Julee Tilman has the following sketch for us to work with:


I also used this week's colour palette over at Colour Q for my card today, although I substituted the now retired Raspberry Ripple for Rose Red as this was the closest match I had. I decided to ink up the two step flower from the 'Mum's Love' set for the first time today - here's my finished card:

I kept my layers simple, with a Whisper White card base, thin border of Blackberry Bliss and then Wisteria Wonder for the main panel. I stamped the flower outline in Blackberry Bliss then in-filled with Rose Red - this stamp set is photopolymer so it makes two-step stamping really easy, no stamp-a-ma-jig required! I also used Rose Red for the smaller mat layer beneath the image and used gold foil cardstock for the diagonal. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed in gold, finishing with a punched gold foil flower with candy dot centre. I love the solid blocks of colour on this card and the pink and purples are such a lovely colour combination, with a touch of gold for added glamour.

I'm back tomorrow with this week's card for the new challenge over at the Paper Players; if you would like to see who I chose as the headliner for my ' CAS feathered friends' challenge, please click here for today's Paper Players post

Until tomorrow, happy stampin'!

Such a pretty stamp Joanne - it will probably go on my very long wish list! The gold flower is the perfect embellishment! Thanks for playing along at Colour Q!
