Happy Mother’s Day!

Hi all, hope all the Mums out there are having a wonderful day. I certainly am! Bubbles and chocolate always make me happy ūüôā

Here’s today’s card:

P1110226

I’m not very happy with this one… somehow it feels a bit unfinished but I can’t put my finger on it. ¬†Anyway, the leaves are from the Peachy Keen set by Kaisercraft (stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia) and the sentiment is from Papercraft’s Family set. I’ve stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder (but I had to draw the apostrophe in with white gel pen! – one of my pet peeves) ¬†Sorry… back on track now… the paper flowers come from a pack I’ve had forever as did the pearl brad.

Cheers for now

Fun with PearlEx

Hi everyone! I’ve had a busy weekend so I’m running late again :/

This week’s card is a very simple one.

P1100098

 

I used a sheet of grey cardstock and stamped it with Hero Art’s Zig Zag background stamp using VersaMark ink. Then I covered it with PearlEx #650 Micropearl. ¬†You can’t really see it in the pic but it’s lovely and shiny! I stamped the greeting using a stamp from the Hero Arts set “It”s Your Day” in Memento “London Fog” ink. The flower was made with the Die-Namics Prima Donna Petals die. I ¬†coloured it lightly with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar distress ink and put some sticky pearls in the centre.

I didn’t need to set the PearlEx on this project but if you want to you can¬†just spray some water in the air and then quickly wave the cardstock through the mist. ¬†Works every time!

Cheers for now!
