Mother's Day Card



This year I am very thankful to have my mom really close by. I've missed having her there for me and being there for her. Now I can be there if she needs me, especially now that she has so many things on her plate. I hope she enjoyed this card as much as I did making it! I ordered the All Holidays stamp set since it has a whole mix of greetings. I must say that my source of word sets is very limited.

For the card I started with Whisper White as the card base. The pretty-in-pink Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the Level 1 Hostess Set, Prints Pack. The flower is stamped on whisper white with Versamark and then embossed in black. I used my Wondercolour Wonder crayons to colour in the petals. The background behind the flowers was kinda messed from the black embossing powder, and I know it doesn't show up too well here, but it make it look better I used a sponge dauber to put Pretty In Pink pastel all over the white. The ribbon was added to make it look like a bouquet of flowers.


Stamps: All Holidays, Embrace Life
Ink: Versamark, Basic Black
Paper: Whisper White, Regal Rose, Pretty In Pink DSP
Accessories: Black Embossing powder, Always Artichoke Grosgrain Ribbon, Glue Dots

Where did April go?

Wow, time sure flies by when you are having fun! May is Scrapbooking Month and I've been doing research on different types of albums that can be made. I am getting them ready for my 1st Workshop in Ontario on Sunday May 25th, check out the Workshop and Classes link on the left. I will post pictures of the albums after the workshop for those of you who cannot attend! Or if you'd like to host a workshop with some friends and family I can show you how to do them too or bring them to your workshop.

Some of the albums I plan on making include: Jewel Case Album, 12x12 Post Album, 6x6 Ringed Album, Accordian Envelop Album, Scrapbook in a Box (great idea from my upline, so cute!) and maybe a few more. Gotta love splitcoaststampers.com, wealth of information on there for scrapbooking. I'm going to have to try out some of those challenges related to scrapbooking when time permits.


I made this Welcome Baby card for a friend who just became a grandmother. It was such an easy and quick little card, especially since the stamp set I used, So Many Scallops from Sale-A-Bration, was die cut and I now have the scallop punch. Perfect! They work so well together.
Stamps: Short & Sweet, So Many Scallops
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Paper: Whisper White, Barely Banana, Pretty In Pink DSP from Level 1 Hostess Paper Pack
Accessories: Pretty In Pink and Barely Banana markers, Scallop Punch, Chocolate Chip Poly-Twill Ribbon, Sticky Strip
