Exciting News!

Well, the exciting news I alluded to yesterday is that I am now a design team member for Stamp Something, a new challenge blog! The inagural challenge will be posted this Friday, May 9. You are invited to play along! Also, there is blog candy, so head on over and check it out!

Stamp Something (I tried to put the button here, but blogger doesn't like the html, check out the sidebar for the whole design team!)

Mother's Day is coming up, so here is one of the cards I made a while ago:

I started with a black base, and added a pierced olive strip, a plain white strip, and a swiss dots embossed rose red strip. The frame was cut and embossed with the rectangle nestabilities and popped up with slivers of dimensionals. I used 3 flowers from Flower Fusion (I really hope we get more colors of these in the next catalog) and hooked them together with a Fire rhinestone brad and attached in the center of the frame with a pop up glue dot and some mono multi. I stamped the sentiment (Verve) in black and tied a pumpkin ribbon around the whole card.

I have another mother's day card to show you, but blogger all of a sudden won't let me upload pictures.

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon!

Supplies:
stamps - Happy Thoughts (Verve)
paper - black, olive, ww, rose red
ink - black
acc - rectangle nesties, flower fusion, fire rhinestone brads, dimensionals, pumpkin gg, pop up glue dot, swiss dots embossing folder, mat pack & piercer
