7 Days of Mother's Day Inspiration ~ Day 3

Sorry my scheduled post didn't post this morning and I just noticed it

Welcome to Day 3 of my & days of Mother's day inspiration. Today's card uses the set Painted Petals, from the Occasions catalog. 
After I stamped my images, I took some gelato and went over them to give them a soft watercolor look. 
The new catalog will be here soon and it is full of beauties :)

7 Days of Mother's Day Inspiration ~ Day 2

It's Day 2 of my 7 days of Mother's Day Inspiration posts. Today I used a set from the Occasions Catalog Painted Petals, after I stamped my flowers in So Saffron, Strawberry Slush and Pear Pizzaz, then I used yellow, pink and green gelatos over them and it really brought out the colors and kinda created a haze around them which I like. 
To create the fence I used the Hardwood background stamp, stamped and sponged in Soft Suede, and cut into half inch strips and angled at the top.
Thanks for stopping by and I will be back tomorrow with another Mother's day creation.

7 Days of Mother's Day Inspiration ~ Day 1

Hi There and thanks for stopping by!
Since I have been making lots of cards to send out for my friends who have lost their Moms, I thought I would do a 7 day inspiration posts to show you some of them.
This one was made using Stippled Blossoms, which is retiring soon, so order yours now. I also used the set Gorgeous Grunge  (one of my go to sets) for the background and the greeting is from a set that retired last year.

I had seen this technique done on one of Jennifer McGuire's videos and have never used it before, but the challenge at CAS on Sunday (to make a card using White with one other color) was perfect.
To make my card, I used a Thanks die from Lil Inker and die cut it out 12 times in white, I placed 11 of them across my card front, and then the last one I used Copic Markers to give it an ombre effect.
