Tools : Honeycomb embossing folder, Alphabet wood stamps

This card is a 5 1/2" x 3 1/2" Tall and skinny card. 

I used white for the first layer and embossed it with my honeycomb embossing folder. The long strip for the side image was embossed with a honeycomb border embossing folder onto metallic gold paper and bordered with black paper.

The other background image is a yellow with white dots paper from Snap Color Vibe paper pack from Simple Stories and is bordered with black paper.

I used my Alphabet wood mount stamps for the sentiment and is stamped on with black ink. I added 2 black brads on the side.

The bee, flower, fly, and the "Bzzzzzzz" are from my Outdoor Fun rubber stamp set. I stamped them onto white paper, colored them in with colored pencils, and then cut out by hand. I used double-sided adhesives to attach them to the card.

Then I used silver glitter glue to highlight the wings on the bee and the fly. I used gold glitter glue on the center of the flower to highlight it and make it stand out a little.

I hope you have enjoyed my card as well as your visit to my blog. Please feel free to visit as often as you want to and to join my blog.

Flowers for you...

Flowers for you
# 435-2015-05
Supplies used :
Cardstock : White, Black, Red, Simple Stories paper pack
Stamps : Flowers for you rubber stamp set
Tools : Paper piercing Tool, Apothecary Accents framelits, Dots embossing folder
Other : colored pencils, glitter acrylic paint
Ink : Black, Red
Accessories : 1/4" black ribbon

This Mother's Day card was made for this weeks Mojo Monday card sketch challenge. You can find this challenge at http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com

First, I started with a white blank card. Then I added a black and then another white layer. I embossed the top white layer with a dots embossing folder.

The red with white dots paper and the 2 banners at the top are from the Snap Color Vibe paper pack from Simple Stories. The red with white dots paper is bordered with black 1/4" ribbon.

The image behind the vase with flowers is bordered with a black 1/4" ribbon rather than using black paper. 

The vase was stamped onto white paper with black ink and then I used a blue glitter acrylic paint to give it its color.

The ribbon on the front of the vase was stamped onto white paper with red ink and then colored in with a red colored pencil.

The 2 flower bouquets were stamped onto white paper with black ink and then colored in using colored pencils. Then I cut them out and used double-sided dimensional stickers to adhere them to the card.

The sentiment was stamped on with black ink. I used the Apothecary Accents framelits.
