Morning everyone and welcome to a new week at Addicted to Stamps and More. We have a fantastic photo to inspire you this week:
I'm not sure about other parts of the world but in New Zealand Mother's Day is Sunday the 8th of May, so this challenge is a great way to create something for your Mum!!
Our Sponsor for this challenge is Happy Little Stampers and they are giving the winner a $15.00 gift voucher.
I was playing around with all sorts of different ideas and kept coming back to the same, very simple design:
I stamped the three words (from Honey Bee Stamps 'Wonderful Life') in Hero Arts Mid-tone Shadow Ink 'Bubble Gum'. I then stamped and heat embossed the butterfly (from Hero Arts) in white on a piece of vellum. After fussy cutting I folded the wings up slightly and added a thin piece of glue tape and adhered to the card.
A little hard to give this to my Mum now for Mother's Day, as she reads all my blog posts but I hope she likes the fact that I thought of her while I made this card.
I have six challenges I would like to enter:
A Blog Named Hero - April Challenge
AAA Card Challenge
Creative with Stamps Challenge # 1
One-layer Simplicity Challenge # 26 (As you wish)
Inspired by all the little things Challenge # 11
CASology Challenge # 194
You have until next Wednesday to link your projects to the Addicted to Stamps and More challenge. And the rest of the Design Team have some gorgeous projects on the blog to inspire you if you need help with ideas. Looking forward to seeing you in the Gallery!!
