True Friend! Mother's Day Card #7

Ok, here is the final Mother's Day card I'm going to show you (this year!!!). I made so many because I need 4 of them for myself plus I wanted to have some on hand for display. Some of them I like to keep because of the layout.

For this card I used the new Stampin' Up! "Boho Friend" wheel, the "True Friend" stamp set and the "Boho Backgrounds" set. The "True Friend" and "Boho Backgrounds" have to be my favorite sets. Well, lately they are and will be until I run across another one I just can't put down. I've had a lot of fun with these two sets and there's still more "stuff" coming using these sets!! Especially the background set!!!

The Mother's Day sentiment was done on the computer, punched out with the 1-1/4" punch, then the Bayou Blue card stock was punched out using the 1-3/8" punch and the Scallop punch for the black.

On the Soft Sky background I used the little flowers in the "Boho Backgrounds" set. I used the Bayou Blue stamped off once for the background. I wanted a little bit of color but yet I wanted it visible enough to know there's something there.

For the flower I stamped the image in Soft Skey. I used my blender pen and removed the Soft Sky from the stem. I took the Bayou Blue ink pad and touched around the edges of the flower. Sort of like the rock and roll but the ink pad was in my hands so I could see where I was going. And get this. I did it that way too so I wouldn't hit the stem. Like I couldn't remove the ink with the blender pen!!! LOL A big DUH there!!! I colored in the stem and leaves with Mellow Moss and then added a touch of Always Artichoke on the dots and top edge of the leaves. I huffed on it to remoisten the ink and stamped the image on a pre-cut piece of Whisper White card stock. I sponged the edges, added a rhinestone brad and it was ready for layering. Another fun card to make. This one really didn't take very long to make at all. The time I spent on this card is about how much time I like to devote to a card. It wasn't a super quick card but it wasn't an all day one either. It was just right!!

I have this set but never use it. After seeing several lovely cards that you've made with it, I'm bring it out again!

Nice blog!
