Coloring Card Set and Crochet Basket for Mother’s Day Gift…

Look at this adorable little basket!  I wanted to give my mother in law a Coloring Card Kit for Mother’s Day so I stamped a bunch of cards and ordered the Zig Brushables Markers from Hobby Lobby.  I love these brush markers…BOTH ends are brush tips!  One end is one color and the other end is another color!  So in the pack of 12 you get 24 colors!  Pretty colors too!  Win!

Oops…took a few pictures before we took this over to her house but I didn’t realize I was focusing on the bow in all of them. lol  Oh well, I think you can see the markers ok.

The little tag is from Papertrey Ink and I tied on a roll of Doodlebug Washi tape.

Here’s the cards I stamped for the kit…two of each one. Penny Black, Hero Arts and Simon Says Stamp images.

I die cut the felt flowers with Memory Box dies out of Taylored Expressions Felt. I used dies from 3 flower sets, Plush Gardenia, Plush Ranunculus and Plus Moda Petals. They all have holes in the center so it was easy to put the centers through the layers.

One of our daughters crocheted the basket for me following this tutorial online HERE… so cute!

I hope you all had a lovely day/weekend! Thanks for clicking over to see what I’ve been up to!

Printworks – Happy Mother’s Day…

 

PamSparksPWBouquetMothersDay

 

A beautiful weekend to celebrate Mothers!  Wishing you all a wonderful day!  I used a NEW stamp from Printworks collection Fabulous Day 2015 release called Birthday Bouquet.

I love it colored up with Distress Marker watercoloring.  So easy… I stamped with Ranger Archival Black ink on Canson Cold Press watercolor paper then just add a line of marker and move the color with a wet paint brush, let it dry and add as many colors and layers as you like! I used Shaded Lilac, Picked Raspberry, Peeled Paint, Squeezed Lemonade, Abandoned Coral, Dusty Concord and Peacock Feathers markers.

I did cut the watercolor paper with a NEW die set from Memory Box Pinpoint Scalloped Circles.

I stamped Happy Mother’s Day with Versamark ink on Black card-stock and embossed it with Fine White embossing powder.

I was inspired to use some alphabet dies when I saw a card on Papertrey ink’s blog!   I used some Crate paper from a 6×6 pad,  a couple old Hero Arts sentiments, an EK Success border punch and an even older diamond punch to make the banner for a ‘scrappy looking kind of card’!

It’s a birthday card challenge for you!  Use some ‘old and older’ stuff! lol  Oh, and my tiny attacher was working that day, so I have a staple! yea! lol  The background numbers stamp is one of those wheel stamps.  I unmount them and use them as a flat stamp… multiple stamping to get the all over background, using the stamp a ma jig for placement.

Pink is harder than red to capture in a photograph!  eek!  oh well,  Here’s a cute card for the scooter rider of the family!  Lots of fun stamps from Printworks Collection here… the fishtail banner pulls out and says….

Howie’s Ride J4300, Toy Racer C4295,  Rough Rider B4290, Who Says? F4304, E4298 1..2..3..,  Eat Cake A4299,   On Your Mark D4123

Printworks has ‘thee’ best Birthday sentiments!!!  This is a non-opening card, for lack of a better way to put it at the moment!  : ) I didn’t tape the right side down so the fishtail banner could pull in and out. The stitching across the top is a Fiskars border punch.  I used banner dies for the words and a circle punch.

I love this primitive wheelbarrow and it is fun to color and goes so well with all of Annette’s images and sentiments!  I attempted watercoloring again on the scooter card and this one, with Caran d’Ache watercolor crayons on cold press watercolor paper.  Perfect Layers Tools for matting the image… link in the sidebar.
