Mom's Birthday

Today is my mom's birthday; she is 48!!! And she got me the stamp set "Eight Great Greetings" because of the stamp that says "I just realized I'm turning into my mother... lucky me". I am very similar to my mother - we have the same sense of humour, and we look at the world in a very similar way.

Her favourite colour is pale yellow, and So Saffron was the closest I have to pale yellow (Barely Banana is darker; not pale enough), so I used that with Bordering Blue - they look so nice together!

Stamp Set: Eight Great Greetings
Card Stock: Bordering Blue, So Saffron DSP, Whisper White
Ink: Bordering Blue, So Saffron
Extras: White Organza ribbon, Blender Pen, Silver Brads

I hope she likes it! It's a very simple card, but my mother is not a complicated woman - she doesn't like too many frills and furbelows (hehe), so I know that simple is best.

I'm going to go over to my parents' house tonight after supper - they might be out for dinner - but I'm going to go anyways, and if she's not there, I'll just leave the card for her in the family room.

Christmas Cards

I made some cards today! They aren't original by any means, but they are new to me:

Stamp Set: Berry Christmas
Card Stock: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss

Stamp Set: Holiday Lineup, Berry Christmas (for the sentiment)
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Bashful Blue, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Bashful Blue, Close to Cocoa
Extras: Blender Pen, Silver Brads, Scallop Edge punch

This card was interesting to make, because I stamped the image a second time on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla, and I coloured in all the hats with the Blender Pen, and then I cut out each hat individually, and then glued them on top of the hats on the first image - it gives it just a little dimension. The picture below shows what I mean:

I hope you enjoy these cards, I certainly enjoyed making them!
