My Hero, My Mom

5/16/20 Top Rocker at 613 Avenue Create!

Hello, friends! Hope you’re having a good week! Our new challenge is live over at Paper Funday Challenges and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you today! Our challenges are always Anything Goes with an optional twist each month, and our twist this month is Mother’s Day. Our sponsor this month is All Dressed Up Stamps and I used the gorgeous Party Frock digital stamp from my stash to create a Mother’s Day card. I don’t believe this image was actually intended to use as a Mother’s Day image, but this just shows what you can do when you think outside the box! This is my last post for Paper Funday Challenges and I’d like to give a shout-out to Donna and the team for having me along this term – I’ve really enjoyed myself!


I printed the lady image on white cardstock and colored it with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I printed the image again on patterned paper and paper pieced the dress onto the cardstock image. I added some coordinating striped paper, some skinny glitter Washi Tape, and punched half-circles along the edges for a little interest. I added a computer-generated sentiment and a few Sprinkles.


I embellished the inside panel with leftover paper used on the front and the skinny glitter Washi Tape. I also punched half-circles around the edges of this panel. The inside sentiment is computer-generated as well.


And one more look… I love this design and this image!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
