Mother’s Day (Throw back Thursday)

This blog post was written on my earlier blog ( a few years ago.  You can still find most of the items used over at Simon Says Stamp 

It is amazing!!!!  I totally love everything that came with it:

1 Simon Says Stamp Exclusive set of stamps designed by Kristina Werner “Best Mom Ever”

1 Sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ Neenah Solar White Cardstock

12 Sheets GCD Double Sided Designer Papers

1 Fancy Die Cut and Embossed Card Front

1 Foot String of Pink Hearts Ribbon

1 Foot of Lace Trim

1 Sheet of Elle’s Studio Custom Design Cut Outs

35 Chipboard Hearts from Maya Road

1 Webster’s Pages Pocket Envelope

1 Bottle of Ranger Liquid Pearls in Petal Pink

1 Sheet 8.5″ x 11″ Bazzill Vintage Pink Cardstock

1 Sheet 8.5″ x 11″ Bazzill Rock Candy Cardstock

1 Sheet 8.5″ x 11″ Bazzill Taffy Cardstock

1 Sheet 8.5″ x 11″ Bazzill Butter Mints Cardstock

1 Sheet 8.5″ x 11″ Bazzill 40# Vellum

My favorite item is the Stamp set. The roses on the card below are embossed black or red on white card stock and then colored in with the opposite color using CTMH Z2305 Black or LePlume II No. 65 Cherry.  On the “red” rose I chose to leave a little of the white showing giving the effect of a “Fire and Ice” rose.  If you have ever seen them they are exceptional.  The red card is from DCWV and is A2 (standard size) matchbook card

The center of each rose has been stamped, cut and dimensional tape added to adhere it to the larger part.   All parts of this card are made using the May 2013 Simon Says card kit unless otherwise noted.  Thanks for stopping by, be sure to leave a comment or two. Have a great week, and as always happy crafting.
