Happy Birthday Mom!

Here is the card that I sent to my lovely mom for her birthday.   The distress inks were put on a craft mat in stripes and then the stamp was wiggled onto them at different points.  The paper was then embossed to match the stamp.  I love the effect…especially how some of the vine leaves on the same strands turned out to be different colors!

Dream Weaver

It’s a “little” busy at work…so crafting time has been limited!!  I made this one about a week ago when I got my new Distress Inks, which are really fun to play with.  I was inspired by a tutorial I saw on how to make the watery look on the papers, but then instead of using the strips as is, I ended up cutting them up and weaving them together!  I also used the distress inks to make my flower using a new ink stamp/die combo!
