Using what I have…

Its so fun to buy new things, especially when it comes to card making. There is always something new available and its hard to resist.  With things being so uncertain, I’ve been trying to use what I already have…some of which I haven’t even opened before!  So this card is made using things I already had in my craft room. 

I don’t know if you have a Tuesday Morning where you live, but in their craft section, you can buy stamps, dies, papers and so much more for a fraction of what you would normally pay.  When I first discovered this, I went a bit crazy and bought a lot.  They have a lot of stamps from “Bo Bunny” for very little and so I have a basket full of their stamps.  All of which I hadn’t even opened…until today!  I don’t love their stamps, they are acrylic and don’t stamp easily, but I made it work and they have great images so its worth persevering. 

So this is a Mother’s Day card. 

I stamped the images using the rose garden stamp set from Bo Bunny and colored them with copic markers.  Then I fussy cut them out leaving a small white border.  I embossed a panel of white cardstock (Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb) with a Darice damask embossing folder.  The sentiment is from a stamp set called “momanddad2love” from  Stamps of life.  I adhered the embossed panel to some red cardstock and then glued all the flowers and leaves to the lower right corner of the card. I did prop up the largest rose with some dimensional foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment with memento tuxedo black ink and fussy cut around it, adding a frame of the same red paper. 

I hope you are all doing well.
