If Mother's Were Flowers....


I chose to make a Mother's Day card using one of my new April Digis and brand new flower punches I picked up on sale for half price yesterday at Michaels. 

I used this April Digi designed by me for Clear Dollar Stamps
I masked off my blue area using Post-It Notes. Then sponged using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Broken China and the Tim Holtz Blending Tool. I did this with my hole paper intact (card is not cut out yet). Then I ran it back through my printer to print my sentiment on. 

Next I cut out and folder my card. Punched out my grass with the Martha Stewart Grass Border Punch. Then ran it through my paper crimper. Cut to size and adhered with score tape.

Lastly, I made my flowers using a $1 sun shape punch from Michaels. Plus the small Reflections flower punch from Michaels.  I punched out three flowers from white cs and three middles from Fresh Papaya CS from CDS. I shaped them by folding them around my embosser.  Layered them, adhered with flowersoft glue and lastly added Studio G glitter glue on the centers. I adhered them to my card using the Flower Soft Glue.

Hi Lisa, I posted some pictures of some cards I made using the Cheeps digital stamps. I am a little embarrassed to share since I am still an amateur card maker, but I thought I would anyways.

Adorable card, Lisa. (P.S. this is the second time I've typed this - so if it didn't post because you have the pre-approval option on - just delete this). K.
