Mums and PoPs

My five sampler pads of Palette O' Prints arrived recently. Yay! After hoarding the customary three, I have some left over to actually use. Double yay! And I thought what better way of putting the PoP to work than to make a Mother's Day card. Oh! Mum, this card isn't for you...well, um, maybe...Don't look!

Whilst there's not much stamping this time, I did use the Mother's Day sentiment from the Occasional Greetings set which was borrowed from the very gracious Michelle Dyson with the Purely Pomegranate ink courtesy of my talented upline Jayne. Since I had no Rose Red ribbon, I sponged some ink on to white grosgrain ribbon, used my heat tool to set the ink and repeated the two steps to increase the quality and intensity of the colour. The heart set into the scalloped Designer Series Paper (DSP) was die cut through Quickutz. A Diamonds in the Rough embossing folder also came in handy.

I'm going to try to make a Mother's Day card like this. Though my Mum will be convinced I got Lin Mei to do it for me ;-)

Lin Mei said...

Oooooh! Hubby outed himself as a paper crafter!

Kari said...

Love the card Lin Mei, I must take your lead and use my 'bug more, I just seem to forget to get it out and use it!! :) Kari

Lin Mei said...

Kari, I'd love to see the results of your bug getting a little workout here and there. My hubby is so sweet - it's always a lovely surprise to see him post a comment. Actually, it is always great to see you and the other visitors posting a response thank you very muchly!

Thanks for sharing it.

Lin Mei said...

Hey Jo! Thank you for popping by and saying Hi. I've been anxiously waiting for your next creation to post a comment on your blog under the name Lana Lovehandles...then again, maybe could prove embarassing for both of us...

Lin Mei said...

Thank you muchly Rachel! And I was just admiring your new cards today while have a little lurk. Will pop by and register my admiration properly.

Marcia said...

Nice card, love the colours in this. Came across you from the demo yahoo group. have added you into my favourites. Love your blog, thanks for sharing.


Lin Mei said...

Hello Marcia! A warm welcome to my blog! Thank you for your kind comments too. It's funny but I cut and paste the URL in your comment not looking at it too closely and it actually took me to a site called "clogspot"! So, everyone, please visit Marcia at as she has beautiful cards to share. The Lovely as a Tree card is magical.

Thanks Lin - bad bad typo!!! That will teach me for trying to blog hop when my daughter is hangling off my arm! Thanks for your kind words. I will keep checking back every now and then!


Lin Mei said...

No problems Marcia - a hangling daughter sounds like quite an impediment to have while trying to type! Have a lovely Mother's Day.
