Crafts 4 Eternity - Special Mums

Mums/Moms - that's what we are celebrating this week over at Crafts 4 Eternity. I love my mom dearly - she is my absolute best friend in the entire universe. I've always believed you have to be a mom before you get to be their friend - it worked with my mom, here's hoping that holds true with our girls!! Here's what's up for grabs just for playing along this week:

One randomly selected winner will receive a $10 voucher to Digistamps 4 Joy!

I don't why, but I often think of flowers when I think of mom... so I used the Mojo Monday Sketch #338 and some super fun new products AND a new technique - let's see what you think! :D


I cut all my panels from MME's Lost and Found Record It paper and mounted it to MFT's Whip Cream card stock. I then cut a Kraft pierced circle and here's where the new technique comes in (and I am sooo sad to say that I watched the video just TODAY and cannot remember where I saw it - if someone knows, leave me a comment and I'll link back)... Anywho...I used MFT's LJD Peaceful Flowers stencil and sponged on MFT's Sweet Tooth ink and let it dry. Then I shifted the stencil and added some Bubblegum and Electric Red ink for the flowers and Fuse Green for the stems and leaves. The video then said to stamp the outline image in black in, BUT the matching stamp set does not have outline images, just solid images...so what's a girl to do? Yep - use the same stencil and just draw around the images with a black fine tip sharpie. :D I love how it turned out; it's not meant to be all tidy and perfect, LOVE!! I then stamped 2 different center pieces in MFT's Red Hot ink; covered the large circle with a large amount of Crystal Accents and then dumped on some rock candy crystals. I added just a small dot to the center of the other flower.

The rest of the card pretty much follows the sketch; added some stitching, some random chocolate dots within the Verve Visual Banner Trim Die, sewed around the edges and added some gorgeous sparkling MME enamel dots. That's it!!

Thanks for stopping by; hope you will take some time this week and celebrate YOUR special mum/mom over at Crafts 4 Eternity!

Hugs,
