Early start on Mother's Day Cards

I'm having a stamp camp this month and we're making Easter, Mother's Day and Father's Day cards. I am in love with the 5th Avenue Floral set and was just messing around and came up with this card.


I think it's simple and elegant. I used my Baja Breeze re-inker and a blender pen to color the petals of a flower that I stamped with black craft ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. Once the flower was dry it just looked a little flat to me, so I painted the colored petals with Angel Wings Shimmerz and added some stickles and I think it came out nice and sparkly.

The sentiment is from PTI's Women of Life set. Cardstock is Baja Breeze and the designer paper is from Green Tea (sadly retired).

Thanks so much for visiting!
