Forgotten Mother's Day card

.Well.. I forgot to post this when I posted the box I made but this was the
mothers day card that went with it. I used the Smooch direct technique from
a Technique Junkies newsletter. It is very shimmery and lovely and you can sort of see it (but not really) in the close up of the corner!! :)

Stamp is Arranged with Love by Melanie Muenchinger and available at Gina K Designs.
The papers are papertemptress.

This card was inspired by a favourite memory of mine one summer when I was around 8 years old or so. My brother and I used to fight CONSTANTLY and one weekend my parents took us out with some friends of theirs on their boat.
It was lovely until about an hour or so in when the seas got really really rough and my parents sent us below deck where it was safe. The side I sat on had a wonderful view out the window of ocean life... my poor brother however had the view of sky one second and ocean the next he was SO sick!!! Me being the younger child who usually was the one to be picked on could not let this opportunity go to waste and reminded my brother of him being sea sick while his little sister handled it no problem many many many times. :)
Of course I would never tease him about it now that we are all grown up (or would I?? lol)!!

stamps: Enjoy the sunshine Stamp TV kit.
paper: PL White for card base and stamp part, PL chocolate brown and some shimmery blue stuff I had in my stash
ink: memento
other: raffia
The image is layered on pop dots

Mother's day box

I made this box to put my mom's mother's day gift in. It was very easy using a template from My Time Made Easy. I did have to cut 2 more pieces to increase the height and stuck it inside and then used the ribbon to cover up the seam. I could have just changed the cut file before hand but since I didn't I decided waste not want not and used what I already had cut and added to it. The top was much easier to assemble than it looks. I was very nervous about it but it went together so easy!!!!

The rose on top is made from the rambling rose cut file from MTME as well. Lauren has a video on her blog on how to assembe the rose too hers turned ouit much better than mine but since this was my first attempt I was happy with it. Very easy and was a big hit with mom! Looks great!! The leaves are a MS punch, and 1 came unglued in transport and was lost so there are only 2 on it now instead of the 3 I originally put there. haha oh well.

I also gave the whole top rose and all a little spritz with some glimmer mist for some extra sparkle.

Okay 3rd time is a charm I hope!!! I tried posting this twice already.. the first time internet explorer crashed and the 2nd my battery died before I could get to the cord.

I made this card today for my best friend while the kids were napping. When they got up we also made cards from them ( one is my 1 year old and the other is her 1 year old) where I brayered acrylic paint onto their hand and pressed onto the card front and since her little guy just would NOT open his hand back up once I put the paint on and I couldnt get a good hand print I did his foot print too. Then they coloured the inside and I wrote their names in crayon in each of their cards. She loved them.

Anyways, onto the card I'm actually posting haha.
The stamps are all from "Wishes and Dreams" by Alicia K. from Gina K. Designs.
The image is coloured with memento ink pads, Crayola IQ markers, elmers paintastic markers, and Touch marker (these are similar to copics). I muted all of th colours though by putting the colour onto an acrylic block and either watering it down for the ink pads, crayola and paintastic markers or using my colorless blender for the touch markers. I also couldn't resist adding a little glitter with my sakura pens too!!
Paper is Neenah white from papertemptress, pink from Michaels done with "metallic pop" technique from technique junkies, red is from a package of paper from the dollarstore that I've had for a long time.
The ribbon is either michaels or walmart... not sure as I've had it for so long.
Oh.. not sure if you can tell from the pic but the fairy's hair and a bit of her wing is sticking out beyond the circle as well... love this "outside the box" technique!!
Hope you like it!
