I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Mother's Day Card

Hi all,

Here is my mom's Mother's Day card. The layout comes from Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch 158. Love Karen's sketches!

I used one of the new Taylored Expressions mini stamp sets called Daisy Bouquet. It's stamped on SU water color paper and colored with SU ink pads and my aqua painter. I love how it turned out.



The small circle element is one of the Fancy Buckle dies from TE as well. I thought that this one went well with the paper and the stamp image.

The large circle was supposed to have zig-zag stitching around it. However, I ran out of thread as I was sewing and didn't even realize it. LOL. It did about 5 stitches before running out. I knew that I'd never be able to match the holes after re-threading my machine, so I just removed the stitches and left it as piercings.

Supplies
Stamps: Daisy Bouquet set by Taylored Expressions
Paper: SU Rich Razzleberry, Pretty In Pink, Whisper White and water color card stock and Happy Go Lucky-Lime Twist by My Mind's Eye patterned papers
Ink: Memento tuxedo black and SU Old Olive, Peach Parfait, Daffodil Delight, Regal Rose, Taken With Teal, Pool Party, and Sahara Sand Classic pads
Other: classic circle and scalloped circle Nesties, TE Fancy Buckle dies, TE teal ribbon, sewing machine, aqua painter, the Big Shot, and dimensionals

I hope your week has started off well. Thanks for looking,
Colleen
