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

Happy Birthday

Happy Friday!

As you read this, I'm flying home to San Diego from Colorado. I'm sure I'm ready to be going home after being away for work this week.

Today's card I made last Sunday and it's my mom's birthday card. I got the inspiration from an old Paper Crafts magazine. The card shape is different, the stamps are different, the embellishments are different. What's the same is how the main image floats over the edge of the circle. That placement is what caught my eye when I saw the original card.



The flowers are from Taylored Expressions, one of the mini sets called Mixed Blooms. Fun, fun, fun to color with Copics as I did here. Many Copics! I made the paper bow from scratch. (I think I may have to  invest in one of the MFT bow dies) I added the button to the center because I think this card has that  "homey/country" feeling and a button just seemed to work.

When I showed this card to my DSO, he exclaimed "How Yaya-ish!"LOL. I said that's good because it's for a Grandmother, my mother. It was just funny.

Supplies

Stamps: Mixed Blooms from Taylored Expressions
Paper: SU Perfect Plum and Pale Plum card stock, X-Press It Blending card stock, and My Minds Eye patterned paper
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, SU Perfect Plum and Copics


Other: Sizzix Birds and Vines embossing folder, classic circle Nesties, SU linen thread, Fiskars corner rounder, TE button, the Big Shot, and dimensionals.

Have a fab weekend all and thanks for looking,
Colleen
