Mother's Day Sale at Sami Stamps!

Happy Friday!
I hope everyone has had a fabulous week and is ready for an amazing weekend!

We don't have a new release this week at Sami Stamps, but instead there is a sale on the images the the DT has chosen to use for their projects.  Each image we've used is 50% off!

For my card, I chose to use the Love and Lullabies image.
I wanted this image to be super soft and subtle so I chose to use some watercolor pencils on it.  I didn't focus a whole lot on shading but did try to add a little depth where it was needed.

After the image dried, I mounted it onto some soft grey cardstock.  Everything was going so smooth until I miss aligned my paper and almost sliced through my image!  It was one of those "see it as it's happening" type panics.  Fortunately I reacted enough to pull the blade up just enough so that it just grazed the top of my paper.  But there was still a clear cut line.  So I had to adjust my design a little bit to help cover up that line.  Nothing a couple of simple soft pink stripes of paper couldn't handle :)

To finish it all off, I embossed a simple little heart in liquid platinum and trimmed it out so that the sentiment could tuck behind it in the corner.  I didn't add any other embellishments, which helped keep the card in the soft style I wanted.

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT's creations!  They are gorgeous!  And remember you get 50% off any of the images they used!

Thanks for visiting! <3

  1. Ahhh, how sweet! You've brought back a lot of memories for me from when my two sons were little. I remember holding them just like this! Great job on the coloring, & I'm so impressed with the image!
