Vintage Mother's Day Card

Remember this?  Do ya?  If you caught my first (ever) video for Ruffled Grosgrain ribbon...this is the finished project.  Voila!

Don't tell my mom I've posted her Mother's Day card here...it's a secret...and we don't want to ruin the surprise right? 


I've been asked how I did the main flower...and it's so easy you're going to die....IT'S a STENCIL! 

Yes! From the Stampin' Up! Definitely Decorative line of products (decor elements and stencils).  This one in particular is part of a VERY LARGE (bigger than 12x12") stencil.   I just used one small portion and applied the ink with a sponge dauber.

I love finding new ways to use my tools, don't you?

The other highlight of this project (okay I confess I love the whole thing).....is this....


Can you see it?  It's the new vanilla SMOOCH Spritz from the Stampin Up! Summer Mini Catalogue. 

It makes me want to SMOOCH everything.  Everyone should SMOOCH.  Hurrah for Smooch-ing!
Smooch. ---okay I'll stop. Back to the card, the Vanilla smooch spritz adds a pearly, glowy and gorgeous shimmer to the whole project.  It is hard to catch shimmer or glitter with a camera, so you will just have to trust me that this is completely radiant in real life!

So, three things to remember.
  1. Go have a look at the new Summer Mini Catalogue and promotions on my retail website
  2. Stencils are awesome you can see the newest stencils and decor pieces on my website too (including fun and functional chalkboard decor elements) .....really, these are so cool!
  3. Smooch, you know you wanna....

EEEK! I used a stencil this way, too, but not with the smooch stuff. I definitely need to try that!
