There were a ton of new stamps released just yesterday from Taylored Expressions plus a ton of new awesome dies - you have to check out the Fresh Out of the Oven section of the Taylored Expressions store for all the newly added items to the store!
For today's Spotlight hop, I decided to create a set of Mother's Day cards to give to our parents as well as the children's god-mothers using the awesome new Shady Tree die and the sentiment: "Happy Mother's Day" from the A Glimpse Inside stamp set. I love making monochromatic cards and decided to go cream and white with a little pop of pink:
Stamps: A Glimpse Inside from Taylored Expressions
Paper: Choice Buttercream card stock and Choice Snow white card stock
Inks: Rose Red from Memento
Accessories: Shady Tree die from TE, MS grass punch, bling, Flower Box Sprigs & Flowers dies, pink grosgrain ribbon from stash, corner chomper and dimensionals
I cut out the Shady Tree Die in Choice Buttercream card stock 4 times and then adhered it to the same card base and then cut out the flowers out from the Flower Box Sprigs & Flowers dies in Choice Snow white card stock and adhered a few on the tree with some bling in the center. On the bottom, I cut out some grass and then on top of it added the sentiment with the edges rounded, a bit of ribbon and some dimensionals:
It was really hard to take a picture of this project, I tried three days in a row, but each day was cloudy in the morning and not very good at showing any contrast - but I finally got a day that was kinda of sunny and was able to get a picture - still hard to see when its cream on cream :) I love how it turned out - it has such a soft feel and although I love love love me some layers and bright colors, it was really nice to work with creams and whites and pinks :)))
I feel lucky to be blessed with a wonderful mother and mother-in-law, as well as wonderful god-mothers to our children, wonderful mother inspirations in all my friends. I am looking forward to filling these cards with my thanks to these amazing mothers for always giving the hearts!
I can't wait to see all the spotlight creations from the Baker's Dozen! Please hop along with me and check them out!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful weekend!
