Hi everyone yesterday this card was posted over at the Just For Fun Stamp blog. I forgot to write up a post for here. :-( With this month having Mother's Day and the "Let's Hear It For The Girls" stamp challenge I thought I would create this card. I love this quote about Mother and  the quote would even make a nice birthday card.

The quote was stamped on Deli paper. It is adhered to cardstock which was embossed with a Darice embossing folder. I should have used watercolor paper as it curled and I had to trim my embossed panel. I was experimenting again. I sprinkled green,blue and yellow Brusho Colour Crystals which are powder pigments on my embossing folder.  I then sprayed my cardstock wet and placed it in the folder and embossed like usual. After the card dried I used an orange gelato on the butterflies and painted over with iridescent medium to soften the color. I used a black Sakura Glaze pen to add details to the butterflies. It is a good thing the black Glaze pen is available separately as I use it a lot. I love the shiny embossed look I get with using it.

I hope you will join me in the "Let's Hear It For The Girls" challenge. You do not need to use a Just For Fun stamp to be eligible for a gift card. Any stamp you have will work. Your project also doesn't have to be a card. It can be anything you like as long as you follow the rules. Best of luck!

Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!


  1. Very pretty. I wish I had half your love for experimenting with new ideas. You do such a nice job.

  2. Absolutely stunning. Great work with the Brushos, and I love the embossing folder. Nice sentiment too.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. :)
