Mother's Day with Easter Blossoms

Hello stampers, I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and lots of fun making Easter themed cards. Now its time to move on to the next occasion - Mother's Day is just around the corner, so here is another inspiration for you.

This is a card using the Faux Mother of Pearls technique to achieve the shimmery background. After applying the Shimmer Paint I sponged the card stock with Rose Red ink and wiped off the ecxess ink. Then I stamped the branches in Crumb Cake, stamped the sentiment in Rose Red and matted the picture with Rose Red card stock. I scrunched the ribbon and glued it to the white card stock. Then I stamped the girl with Early Espresso, punched it out with a circle punch and mounted it on a scalloped circle.  The base of the card is Crumb Cake card stock. The frame is embossed with the "Framed Tulips" embossing folder and then I very slightly sponged over the embossed impressions with a sponge dauber and Early Espresso ink to make the design pop a little more. Last step was to attach the miniature rose on the girl's basket.

This card also shows how versatile your stamp sets can be. The stamps are from the set "Easter Blossoms" in the Occasions Mini catalog. I just covered up the Easter eggs in the little basket with a miniature rose and VOILA -  it can be used year round. How cool is that.
You can order all the material through my website, but HURRY, the stamp sets and some of the accessories are from the Occasions Mini (OM) catalog that expires on April 30, 2011.
