I had a chance to play and make some cards for a great cause this weekend.
Operation Write Home has a great challenge for Mother's Day. They are gathering cards to send out in time for Mother's Day and that means that "mom" theme cards are perfect, as they can be sent ANY day!
That challenge inspired me to pull out this cool stamp set from Papertrey Ink (Rock On). I thought about some of my friends with "kids" old enough to be in the service- wow, we're too young for that, aren't we!? :) ...anyway, if you are a mom with a son or daughter who is serving in the armed forces, let me just say-
I added a little sparkle to the guitar with a spritz of shimmer spray.
Oh, and another cool thing, the cut out guitar is thanks to the coordinating steel rule die for this stamp set (now those dies really do rock!)... I added a black guitar behind my stamped one to add a little more dimension and also to help stiffen the die cut so it could be popped up better with a few dimensional adhesives.
The package I'm preparing with half "mom" theme cards and half general purpose cards will also include some traditional flower filled Mother's Day cards, too...
Here's a close up of the sentiment that I colored in with markers to easily achieve the two color stamped image...
ONE last thing... below is my latest photo of my papercrafting dog.
Here he is surrounded by the bits of cardstock he selected from the trash bin...
Torn paper anyone?
Have a wonderful weekend!
