Hi everyone, TGIF to you! Mother's Day will be here on Sunday...do you have your cards made? I whipped up these creations last night for my mom and Eric's mom. I'm so thankful we have them both in our lives. For the images, I used Vintage Picnic and Mother. I love to mix and match the sets together, nesting images with one another. The picnic basket was paper pieced with patterned paper and the flowers were colored with Copic Sketch markers. I also used a yellow Copic marker to highlight over my sentiment.
For my ribbon, I used some of my Wrinkle Ribbon along with a stamped Tiny Tag. Both the Wrinkle Ribbon and Tiny Tags will be up in my shop soon. Love using the Tiny Tags to tie onto ribbons.
And here's a new item that I'll be featuring in my Etsy shop....Carnival Tickets. They are so fun to add to cards, scrapbook pages, gift wraps, etc. Here, I used them on my card fronts to write additional mini messages to our mothers. All of the tags have blank areas that allow for journaling, messages, stamped images, die cuts, punched shapes, buttons and more. So fun, I hope you enjoy them! I have lots of colors available. Can't wait to show you a scrapbook page, using an entire strip of tickets as a journaling block. :)
For the inside of my cards, I added pieces of Rustic Cream cardstock so that my stamped sentiment would show up. I added two splashes of color to my sentiment by using my Copics just as you would a highlighter.
I hope you have a fantastic weekend. If the weather holds out, we'll be doing our annual shopping trip to the greenhouse for flowers and bedding plants. Gotta pick up some tomatoe plants and pepper plants too.....my homemade salsa would not be the same without them this summer! Later kiddos.
