Paper Sweeties May Inspiration Challenge #31 ~ Celebrate Mom!! =)

Pin It

I'm here to share the New Paper Sweeties May Inspiration Challenge #31 - "Celebrate Mom" !! I just LOVE the Inspiration Photo and there are SO many ways that you can go using this as your jumping off point!! I've made TWO Projects for today!! =) I have Four Sisters and Two SIL's and I always try to remember them on Mothers Day so I've made another Sweet Little Card that can be made for the OTHER Special Women in your Life too!! First I decided to create a Sweet little Coffee Pot Shaker element and then I used some of the Paper Sweeties Flower Dies to die cut some Felt Flowers to use for my embellishments!! I added some Webster's Pages Lace and then I Stamped and Embossed my sentiment in Ranger Gold Embossing Powder!! I've used the Paper Sweeties Tea Time for Two Bundle, the Pretty Posies Sweet Cuts Die Set, the Sending Sweet Thought Sweet Cuts Die Set and the Party Time Bundle Set!! For the inside of my Shaker I added some of the Sweet Gold Sequins, some 4mm Sequins and Crystal Seed Beads from Pretty Pink Posh!!  I painted my Coffee Pot with some Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint in Tattered Rose!! I inked it up using Gathered Twigs Distress Ink after it was dry and I used a Stitched Circle Die from Lil' Inker Designs to create the Shaker Window in my Coffee Pot!! I wanted to add some stamping to my card base so I used the Trio of Dots Stamp from the Party Time Stamp Set and then used some Gold Paint and Distress Stain to color them in and then used a White Gel Pen to add a High Light mark to each one for even more interest!! I LOVE the way it turned out!!
For my Second Card I've used the Tree of Life Add-On: Spring Stamp Set and the Tree of Life Stamp Set!! I masked off the Left Hand side of my Card and stamped my Design!! Then I Sponged on some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to define the Design!! I colored the Images using my Colored Pencils and then used Gamsol to Blend them!! I added some Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker and some Black Gel Pen to define the Birds eyes!!
To see even more AMAZING Inspiration being shared I hope you'll stop by the rest of the Paper Sweeties DT Blogs to see what they have created!! =)
