Keep Smiling!

I hope that today finds everyone happy and healthy and looking forward to a wonderful weekend.  Mother's Day is Sunday and I hope the mothers who read my blog are celebrated by their families!

I made this FLAT card recently using stamps from the Simon Says Stamp Kit of the month for February.  Here is the stamp set....it's a great one, I think!

It's called "Thinking of You" and can be found HERE.

I used a white card base and stamped the dotted border multiple times with Memento Luxe pigment inks in yellow, orange and red.  Then I heat embossed the images with clear embossing powder.  So pretty!  I am not much one for lining things up in repetitive patterns but this was fun and easy and the image stamped so well.  I stamped Keep Smiling and the arrow stamp with some black VersaFine ink and heat embossed it with clear, as well.  I love the sheen.  This is a great card for mailing....no bumps and ridges! LOL!
Here's my card:

and a side view so you can better see the cool embossing:

Very clean and simple, I'd say....

Well, that's it for today!  I need to get in my craft room and finish up a project!

Happy Crafting!

  3. Love you cards Susan. Such great ideas you have. I finally got a chance to look at your wedding photos. What a lovely day you all must have had. Love the bridesmaids in their pretty coloured dresses and the little attendants ...so cute.
    Your rehearsal dinner looked perfect. How clever to use the frames for the centre pieces. You must have been such a proud Mama...
    Thanks for sharing this lovely event with us all. Have a wonderful Mother's day. Hugs, Ursula
