My mom and I share the love of stamping - it's a special bond. We send each other pictures of cards asking for opinions, send each other pins, split paper and ribbon shares, and we share our stamps. We live about 8-9 hours apart but always make time to stamp when we visit each other. (Some days we wait until the night before I leave to cram in a stamp session :/ - not how I'd like it to be!)
I just returned from a visit and had the intentions if making a card for this month's Throwdown Challenge. I don't have the Flower Patch stamp set and wanted to use my mom's set. Well, we waited until 10pm the night before I left to stamp and I totally forgot! (In fact, I almost forgot to use her Barnyard Babies set for my feature on CrushOnColour!)
Then I remembered that when she visited my house last year, I stamped a few of the sentiments off! They were in the bottom of a tin that I have in my stamp room! :) woohoo!! Mom to the rescue again!
So here are the basket ingredients and pantry items for this month's challenge: I promise, I did use Calypso Coral - my pictures make it look more pink!
In case you were wondering, yes - you didn't see a framelit or punch on the list. So here's the trick: to get the look of the butterfly, I embossed the silver glimmer paper and cut out the butterfly. The easy way to see the line to cut is to turn the paper over and cut the white side.
I liked the look of these simple and quick mini cards so I made another one! I added an "E" and cut up one of the sentiments.
Hope these inspire you to play along. Head on over to see more at TGIF Challenges! Have a great day!
