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 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.
