Inspired Stamps Mother's Day Card

Hello and welcome here!  Mother's Day is fast approaching and the Inspired Stamps DT are here to help inspired you with Mother's Day or Love cards.

Card Size:  4.25" x 5.5"
I used Inspired Stamps Solid Alphabet Uppercase and Solid Alphabet Lowercase to make the word 'Mom'.  I added a couple of paper ruffles along the bottom by spraying water onto strips of paper and gathering it along one edge with my fingers and letting it dry.  Once dry it's nice and solid.


Inside:
I used a sentiment from More Perfect Sentiments, and the flower is from the Flowers Value Pack.

Inspired Stamps Spring Card

Hello and welcome here!  The Inspired Stamps DT are sharing Spring cards with you today!

Card Size:  4.25" x 5.5"
Spring is the time for new flowers!  I used Flowers Value Pack for my card today.  To colour my flower and the background behind it I inked up my acrylic block with pink ink and then spritz it with water.  I then quickly stamped my white cardstock with the block.   I let it dry and then stamped my flower, and fussy cut it out.  I did the stem the same way, but using green ink.  The background I inked both colours onto the block and let the water mix the blue and green slightly.


Inside:
Inspired Stamps SS-Flower Value Pack, CTMH CS-White Daisy, CTMH Ink-Sweet Leaf, Sky, Topiary, Blush & Black, Spellbinders-Fancy Lattice, Labels 10 & Labels 17, Ice Stickles-Cherry Ice, Foam Squares.

I added Stickles to the flower petal edges and the center.

Helloooooooo, anybody home???

Hello and welcome here on this Valentine's day!  And no, I have not fallen off the face of the earth, or  have been kicked off any design teams....yet, lol.  Our computer died.  Therefore I have no way to upload and edit any photos and this is why you have not heard from me.  So, as soon as we can get that piece of technology working again it will be back to work as usual.  Hope to see you later!!

Ta for now,
Deneen
