Since my Mom doesn’t get out much but she loves to send cards to people, I try to help her out by making cards and sending them to her with a book of stamps. I made an altered lunch pail for her last year to keep her cards all together. So when there’s a birthday, anniversary, or a death – hey she is 91! – she only has to go as far as her dining room table to pick out a card! Well, I have been cleaning out my scrap room – seems like I’ll NEVER get it finished – and I came across some cards that I made in my Stampin’ Up! days. I gathered them up to send to my Mom but I wanted to share them with you first.
I used one of my favorite stamp sets on the card on the right!
I tried my hand at water coloring with the card on the left! I used watercolor paper to stamp the image on and then embossed it in gold. I really liked how it came out!
The stamp set on the left was the very first set that I purchased before I became a SU Demo. It’s been discontinued but it is still one of my most favorites. I did some masking on the card on the right. I miss Kiwi Kiss!
I have a few more cards to share with you tomorrow. One is very fun and only uses punches! I’ll bet that it could be created on the Cricut! Ummmm! Something to think about!
