April Snows Bring Mother's Day Flowers!

Ok. So I know that's not the way that the saying goes, but in Wisconsin, Spring can bring a lot of things--like snow and ice and my 7th and 8th snow day of the school year this week! To celebrate the fact that spring flowers will appear before August, here's a mother's day card:

I totally cased this card from Kim Cagle at Stamp and Sew for Fun. It turns out she cased it from SandI MacIver!  Stampin' Up! demonstrators love to share ideas and new techniques and this one caught my eye right away. In fact, I was choosing between Sandi and Kim's cards before I went with Rich Razzleberry!

This technique is pretty cool.  You emboss in white. Then use a blender pen to apply White Craft Ink to the flowers. Finally, you use a blender pen to add color to the flowers. I love this.

On a personal note. Today is my grandma Leone's birthday. She passed a couple of years ago and I miss her dearly every spring. She loved Spring. Her favorite flowers were Jonquils and the wildflowers in the woods. She would have liked this card for it's colors.

Happy Stamping!
