Okay, a little bit of catch up. I’m a one woman show so when I need to focus I drop off of the radar for a bit. I’m popping back up on radar now! So many of you send a note just checking and I thank you – I’m so very touched. Months of work – I’ve just finished designing new dies and they are going to blow your mind! These are a bit off in the future but keep your fingers crossed for me that they get approved. I’ve put my heart and soul into it and of course, you all weighed in earlier this year when you participated in my survey. I’m listening and I think you’ll be pleased with what I’ve come up with!
For my first day off in a long, long time, this weekend my sister is flying in and I’m actually going to spend a girls weekend filling up on inspiration. I’m itching to create so I’ll definitely see you on the other side of my weekend. In the meantime I have a card to share and to give away in anticipation of Mother’s Day! . . . it’s coming! Are you ready? Other than the reason that Mom’s are simply awesome, what a wonderful occasion to show your love!
How It’s Made
For my card today the main focal point is Spellbinders Heirloom Legacy die template turned on it’s side. Just inside the oval I tucked two filigree corners – although this die is discontinued a great substitute is Spellbinders Corner Flourish Two. The sweet sentiment is from Quietfire Design and it’s stamped on Spellbinders Labels Four. I get the rosy halo around the sentiment by keeping the paper in my die and using a Distress Ink Blending tool that I’ve lightly touched on my ink pad (Victorian Velvet Distress Ink) and stenciled by pulling the color from the outside of the die to the inside with a sponge with a very light touch.
