Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
First, let me say Thank You for all the Congratulations on the Baby, that sweet little boy generated more buzz than most of my cards!! lol But that is truly what life is all about (and who we make our cards for) is our family and friends. ❤
Today I’d like to share with you a Mother’s Day card I created using the items in the April 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit. I love these kits, first, because they come in my mailbox (better than bills – lol), they are easy to use, they introduce us to new products, like this months Destinktive stamps, and because everything coordinates with our current product line so it’s a breeze to make alternative projects from the kits if we choose!
Distinktive stamps are the latest innovation here at Stampin’ Up!, and the Paper Pumpkin team loves them so much that we decided to give you two of these very special stamps in our April kit. Distinktive stamps give you photorealistic-style images in one stamp, and as you can see, the result is stunning.
Everything you see on my card was included in the kit except the Wink of Stella. The card base, the colored background, and the rose are all pre-done for you. There is a beautiful rose in the stamp set included in the kit (that is another thing I like about Paper Pumpkin – an exclusive stamp set each month that you can keep using once your consumables in the kit are all gone) I just used the greeting today.
So the only stamping I did was my greeting, everything else was ready for me to assemble the card… and a little hint of Stella on the rose and gently over Mother.
Someone asked me why the little Angel was in my photo’s … she was a gift I bought my sister Eileen while she was battling her cancer, and Eileen was the wind beneath my wings as my stamping side kick … we did it all together. ❤ Now her and Mom are together along with my other sister Ruthie, and they all watch us.
I have to chuckle … Eileen is the one who got us in to Genealogy, and now she knows all the answers the rest of us are still looking for!
I hope you enjoyed todays card, I may share more with this gorgeous stamp set, but I just got my pre-order from the new catalog and I can’t wait to share some of this with you!!
Have a warm and wonderful day ~
