Love Ya Mom!!

Happy Thursday, everyone!! I hope it's been a great week so far!! I am attending a conference this weekend, so I won't be around to visit until Sunday night. Has everyone been having trouble scheduling posts?? Mine hasn't worked since last Friday.  I have this post scheduled and another on Saturday...crossing my fingers that it works!! If not, I will try to jump on the computer at the hotel and manually publish. UPDATE: auto-post worked!! Yay :)


I have a Mother's Day card to enter into a few challenges. The paper is from Fancy Pants Road Show stack. It has lots of sparkle and shine to it, but you can't tell in the pics. I used a Spellbinders Label 23 for the base, and a Lace Doily Motif for the back, cut in half. All of the edges are inked with Walnut Distress Ink.


The labels are Spellbinders Nestabilities 10. The flowers are a combination of Flower Shoppe and  Spellbinders Rose Creations dies for the bottom. The gems are from Recollections.


I was so excited to use my new Letter Envy Font Cartridge, that I won from Linda at The Paper Boutique!! Love it!! Thanks again, Linda!! :) I used it for the letters in Mom. Each layer is popped up with foam tape for dimension. The tag is a Spellbinders Pennant die, with "Love Ya" from K Andrew Designs Coffee & Tea For You & Me stamps set:

The beautiful organza ribbon is from Michaels, the flower button and natural fiber from my stash. The "Made With Love" charm is from Hobby Lobby.


I am entering the card in the following challenges:
  1. Cooking With Cricut #83 - Bling, Bling and More Bling
  2. Krafty Girls Challenge #6 - Mother's Day
  3. Tuesday Throwdown #95 - Use Some Sparkle
  4. The Stamp Man - Show Us Your Shabby Chic or Distressed Style
Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I will stop by to visit when I get home :)

Lisa,

I have questions ~ how many layers is each letter? So you made a letter, put foam under it, put another letter on top and did that how many times? I'm trying to look at the letters from the side to see how you did it.
Just stunning!
Hugs,
Chriss

Georgiana said...

Super impressive. I have a question for you...how do you get your cards in the envelopes for mailing? I was making those beautiful flowers, but then thought they may get flattened in the regular envelope.
