What mom doesn't want to be queen for a day?! I began with a Whisper White card base and added a piece of Twitterpated paper with some machine sewing around the edges. Next I heat embossed the crown from Artistic Etchings on a Whisper White piece of card stock. I added a layer of Basic Black card stock and popped the piece on the card with dimensionals. I added some adhesive rhinestones at the top of each point of the crown. The greeting is from a retired SU stamp set. It was stamped on Whisper White card stock and layered onto Basic Black. The piece was added to the card with dimensionals and then a few extra adhesive rhinestones were added.
I decided to stick with one a simple layout for this third card. I stamped the Sunflower background stamp onto a corner of the Very Vanilla card layer and then colored it in using a combination of ink with my aqua painter, some acrylic paints with a touch of water and a paint brush, and then some dazzling diamonds with a bit of 2-way glue. This card really sparkles in person! The greeting was stamped with Jet Black Staz-On and the whole panel was layered onto a piece of Jet Black card stock before being adhered to the Very Vanilla card base.
I decided to pull out the Pennant Parade stamp set for my last card. I stamped the different pennants in multiple colors (Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive). I then punched out the pennants with the pennant punch. Next I drew a white line on the Crumb Cake card base with a white gel pen and then added the pennants with dimensionals. You could sew the pennants to the card as well. I stamped the letters for "mom" with the Calendar Alphabet & Numbers stamp set and then punched the letters out with the circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack. Next I punched Daffodil Delight card stock with the 1/2" circle punch and layered the smaller circles on top. I added the circles to the pennants and added a few adhesive rhinestones. Finally, I stamped the greeting on the bottom of the card.
