A Sweet Mother's Day and Sweet Thank You




Hello Peeps! It's Tuesday and it is chilly today, suppose to be getting warmer later today, but now it is just dreary and overcast.

Today I have two fun cards to share. They are both made with the same sketch. The Sweet Sunday Sketch on Karen Giron's Blog. It is a fun sketch, love the back ground angle.

The first one is another Mother's Day card is all SU. It is a 5" square, I started with a base of rose red followed by pretty in pink and then cameo coral and then some of the yummy Raspberry Tart DS paper. The flower is from the SU set Petal Pizazz and is stamped in rose red and pretty in pink and layered up with lots of dimensionals. The center is a silver filigree with a pretty in pink brad in the center. The leaves are stamped with kiwi kiss and cut out and mounted under the flower petals. The sentiment is from the SU set "All Holidays" I used the new edge punch as well. Lots of piercing and three pink brads at the top.





The next one with the same sketch was inspired by this cute little project.

I loved her red polka dot flower made with the scallop punch, so I had to give it a try. I sooooo wish I had a pretty black button like the one used by Connie, but I didn't and I was in a hurry to get this one done, so I just used a white one. Except for that button this would be another SUO card. The flower consist of three scallops that are cut in towards the center and "fluffed up".

Here is a close-up of the flower:



I used dimensionals between each scallop. The leaves are made with the small oval punch and ran through the crimper and creased in the middle. This card is only a 4-1/4 inch square.

Well. that's all for today, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

both of your cards are fantastic! I haven't seen the scallop punch used as a flower like this until this challenge - so I'm definitely going to try that now! Thanks for playing.
