Hi peeps! Hope you all had a good weekend...it seems like I totally skipped Monday, although I did have a fun class with some of my stamping friends! But Tuesday is here, and our Stamp Ink Paper challenge for this week is "Mother's Day"!
I thought it would be fun, since I've been making CAS cards for the last few posts, to add some layers and doodads to my card today! I found a great sketch at Mojo Monday, and the Retro Rubber challenge wants buttons along with a stamp at least a year old!
I didn't do a romantic or traditional Mother's Day card...my mom and grandmothers are all gone so it's not a holiday for which I traditionally make cards! One thing I do remember about my mom and my grandmother, is that they both passed along a love of needle arts to me. So I thought a sewing-themed card would be fun! Not only did I use some retro stamps, I used some retro papers as well! I pulled out some really old Cosmo Cricket papers from the Material Girl line, along with a Paper Smooches set called Needle Little Love, which I believe is from 2014:
Everything except "mom" is from the PS set; it is from SU's Labeler Alphabet, and everything is stamped in Basic Black. I arranged all the layers using papers from the pad, and piecing some of the images and fussy-cutting them out! I added paper buttons to the button panel, so it will mail nice and flat!!
I just love this little cross stitch border...and did you check out the stamped needle above?! Cute!
On the inside, I did stamp a Mother's Day sentiment from last year's Paper Pumpkin, then added another sentiment from the PS set....I don't usually do that, but I like that cute little sentiment!
SO, would you like to receive this card? Since I won't be sending this to anyone, I'm going to do a little giveaway! Leave a comment on this blog post (please, no anonymous comments as I have no way to contact you) and I will pick a random comment on Friday, May 5 and that commenter will receive my card! Please, only US and Canada addresses, sorry....sometimes it takes over a week for mail to reach its destination and I don't want it to arrive after Mother's Day! Just make sure your comment is connected to an email address so I can email you for your snail mail address!
Be sure to check out the other Design Team members' creations at Stamp Ink Paper too...and I can't wait to see YOURS in the gallery as well!
My sweet friend Linda shared these cute little butterfly-embellished Hershey's nugget favors at my Cards & Coffee class yesterday:
Cassidy was all smiles when I told her she could have a couple!
