Happy Mother's Day!!

Today I am honoring all mothers' out there with two cards I created using WPlus9's "Coming Up Roses" stamp and die set. I personally think that mother's should have more then one day a year to be celebrated. Most of the mother's I know are the HARDEST WORKING people. I hope you all are celebrating this day with lots of pampering and hugs from your loved ones.

I chose to make this card very plain and let the vase with the roses be the focal point. The vase was covered in Glossy Accents to give it a glassy sheen. Using foam adhesive, I then layered die cut, stamped roses and a leaf over the top of it to fill up the bouquet and give it some dimension.

Around the outside I used a score board to emboss a line around the edge for a more decorative look. I really like how this came out but chose to step it up a notch on the second card.

I used an MFT Blueprints die to die cut a piece of white card stock. I then chose to stamp the bouquet on the right side for this card. I used PTI's Avocado ink for the leaves and then took a Copic colorless blending pen and "erased" some of the color to give the leaves a different look. I also used some vellum and the vase from the die set to create the vase above. I inked around it in gray and only adhered it under the layered leaf and a tiny bit on the stem to give it the glassy look. 

Before I adhered the card to the yellow card, I flung mist spray onto the top to get the drops of golden yellow all over the card. Some of you might not like this but I actually think it makes the design pop a bit more. I like this card a lot better then the first one.

I thank you for stopping by today. I hope everyone is enjoying your time. Happy Mother's Day!!
