Team Stamp It Mother's Day Blog Hop


Hi Stampers!

Need some inspiration for Mother's Day?...Well, I'm glad that you stopped by. Why not honor that someone special that we call "Mom" with a hand made item that she can always treasure? Some of Team Stamp It group members have some amazing projects that we would like to share with you. If you are already on our tour, you have just come from Lori Mueller's Stampin Dreams blog. I just love her ideas. If you have just arrived here, not to worry....you can easily stroll along through our hop by navigating using the "next" and "previous" buttons below.


Now on to my share:





I used Stampin' Up!'s Mother's Love stamp set and combined several techniques to create my card share. In addition, I decided to create my own background for this card. First, I created the background by randomly stamping the flower image using Crisp Cantaloupe on a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White card stock. Secondly, I embossed a strip of Crisp Cantaloupe using Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. Finally, for the focal point - I heat embossed the greeting using Calypso Coral embossing powder and used the "Two Step" Technique for the flower. For the "Two Step" technique, I used the Garden Green and Calyps Coral Stampin' Write Markers to ink up the outline images. Then I used Wild Wasabi and Crisp Cantaloupe on the solid image and stamped over.

I have to admit that Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe is one of my favorite color combinations.










Here is the complete list of the supplies I used:










Now, lets head on over to Liz Miller's Stampin With Liz blog and see her awesome project.

Simply Stamp It Color Challenge - Happy Girls Day!



Hi Stampers!


Today, we are playing along with Simply Stamp It's Color Challenge.



Melon Mambo, Crumb Cake & Blackberry Bliss


Today's card is just in time for Hina Matsuri or otherwise know as Happy Girl's Day! I was raised with my Japanese Grandparent whose parents migrated to Hawaii from Japan. As a child, we celebrated every March 3rd as Girl's Day. It was a celebration filled with delicious Japanese cuisine and a gift of a new Japanese Doll.

Today, I'm sharing with you a Happy Girl's Day card using Japanese Origami (Paper Folding) technique. Make sure you come back to visit me tomorrow and I will have the instructions on making the paper doll used in my card,

I wanted to create a oriental feel to the background. I decided to use Stampin' Up!'s  Flowering Flourishes Stamp Set to help create a Cherry Blossom look for my background. I stamped it using Versa NMark and embossing it with Gold embossing powder.

I didn't have a "Happy Girl's Day" stamp, so I just printed it on my computer and ran my crumb cake paper through the printer.








Here is the supply list you need to make this card.






Need supplies? Just head on over to my ONLINE STORE !
