HSS 113

Hi stampers!  Happy Tuesday!  Time for another fun challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments!  This week is all about mom!  It's never too early to start thinking about Mother's Day!  I already have a present for my mom and an idea for my mother-in-law:-)  I'm ahead of the game...for once!  And I have to say I love my momma!  We used to fight like cats and dogs when I was a teenager but I really do love her!  She's my mom AND one of my best friends...even though we DO drive each other nuts!  (Could that be because we are so ALIKE????  Haha)

So, for my project I took the theme quite literally and made a card that I thought my momma would like.  She LOVES bright colors and is especially fond of purples and blues like island indigo!  I tend to wear a lot of gray and neutrals in my wardrobe and it used to drive her nuts when she bought my clothes...she'd say "you need COLOR", lol!  So, when I bought a pair of bright turquoise pants last week I had to text her right away!  Haha!  She was so proud:-)  Now, don't ask what my husband thought of them...but what does he know about fashion, right? :-)  I knew the summer smooches suite would be right up her alley with all the fun and bright colors!

Anyway, I need to get this one in the mail because now that she moved away I like to send her cards and I haven't sent her one in a while! 

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Bright blossoms, family reunion
Paper:  Whisper white, daffodil delight, rich razzleberry, island indigo, summer smooches DSP
Ink:  Island indigo, lucky limeade
Accessories:  Decorative label and circle punches, summer smooches fabric brads

Now, don't look at my little stamped leaf too close.  I think I have a faulty stamp and the image doesn't stamp real well.  I should probably call SU about that.  I have to say they are great about fixing any problems! 

My mom is a pretty simple person so I kept this card simple...but bright!  I know she'll like it!

How head on over and see what else the design team has come up with and meet our NEW members!  I'm so excited to have each and every one on board and see what they come up with each week!

And don't forget to play along!

Happy stamping!


  1. I love how you used the brad as a flower! Great! The more I see it, the more I want the paper... trying to hold out though!

  2. Mindy, this card is so bright and cheerful, the colors your Mom likes with your dash of personality, I love it! :) now you've got to post a pic of those pants!!

  3. I love your pants story! Lol! I had a red sundress that I thought was truly fabulous but my hubby hated it, and I figured the same thing...hey, he still wears velour shirts and therefore bears no weight in my fashion decisions. Now, your card is lovely, bright, and it certainly will be appreciated :). I love all the pattern, and that big brad. Ps, my leaf stamp does the same thing, I thought it was me!

  4. Very pretty! I love how you stamped the image and then punched it with the Decorative Label.

  5. Thanks for the nice Welcome, very excited to join the Talented Design Team!!!
    Love the use of the summer smooches- so bright and cheerful!! Love the brad flower!!! Great use of punches!!

  6. I love your bright and cheerful card! I love that you used the Decorative Label punch with the stamped image and the brad is just the right touch. So clever!

  7. Mindy, this card ROCKS! I love the clean bright colours! I never would have thought to layer the decorative label on a circle, but it looks AWESOME!


Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
