Happy Mother's Day

Here's one of the Mother's Day cards I made this week. The sketch is Amy's (Heartfelt Greetings) sketch from last Sunday. She has such an awesome blog and some fantastic sketches every Sunday, so go check her out.

I got my Stampin' Up order with Doodle This, Doodle That and the new Paper Palettes pack on Friday and just had to play with them. I started by stamping the flower from Doodle This in Ancient Page Coal Black on Whisper White. I then used my Stamp-a-majig to line up the swirl vines from Doodle That with the little leaves in the stamped image. Then I colored all the images in with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol and then highlighted the edges of the flower with my Rose Red Stampin' Write marker.

Next I pulled out a very neglected pack of heavyweight vellum and laid it on top of the image to stamp Happy Mother's Day from All Year Cheer #2 over the flower in Coal Black. A few squiggles with my Zig Vellum Writer marker around the edges to frame it and then I matted on Rose Red card stock. I stamped 3 of the small flowers from Doodle That, colored with Rose Red and Regal Rose markers and cut out. On the card base I used the celery argyle and the rose red stripes from the Palette O' Prints and Cuttlebugged with the D'Vine Swirls folder. I then applied the three flowers with Stampin Dimensionals, and added Diamond Stickles to the flowers and directly over the vine flowers on the vellum.
