Mothers(s) Day with Embellish, card patterns, a long post

I'm so sorry for my long break between posts and not getting the chance to visit and leave you some well deserved comments... I haven't forgotten you :)...
but I have taken a bit of a break and this following week as well....I intend to schedual an occasional something or other and we have the April Anya preview coming at the end of the month. I have a few personal goals and things on my to-do list that I am excited to focus on! They are very important to me and that will require my undivided attention for a leetle while...but I'll be around as time permits... 






SO... this weekend has seen some major card making LOL! Happy mother's Day to all who celebrated it on Sunday. I had a lovely day and feel very blessed :). Then on Monday was my Mum's Birthday and tomorrow the wonderful St Patrick's Day too, phew!!!
This first card covers a few challenges around this week,
Embellish magazine has a fabulous colour challenge with fabric. I had so much fun and really enjoyed creating with new materials... Firstly the fabric is the sticky back canvas mmm' wow' love this stuff it stamps so well and you can rip it and pull it and then it sticks and you can fray and ink the edges!
I even die cut it and stamped the fabulous butterfly, I de-tacked the sticky back with my dust buddy. The other bit of fabric is the brad on main image. The vase I had fun with, inking with distress ink and put a very generous layer of rock candy crackle paint! I followed Card patterns sketch prettty much as it is :)
Patterned papers: Cosmo Cricket: PTI: Kraft; PM: textured;
Stamps: PTI: Butterfly dreams; blooming button bits;
Ink: Distress inks; pallette: white;
Dies: PTI: butterfly; WRMK: corner chomper;
Other: Sticky back canvas; roak candy clear crackle paint; PTI: buttons; Offray: satin ribbon; natural thread; fabric brad; 3D foam;

This next mother's day card was for my mum and I went very vintage, the little angel cards are printed from a cd 'so cute' :). The flowers I made myself from die cutting, layering and inking the papers so they are double sided. The large button is the angel printed in black and white. I then adhered onto greyboard and cut into circle. Punched the two holes and covered with glossy accents and then it happened.....

....yes, the image completely distorted, went all over the place giving a 'blue' colour more porcelain really, which was a wonderful happy accident (love them, don't you?) I also made the box envelope to match :).

Patterned papers: K&Co; PTI: kraft;
Stamps: Joanna Sheen: Angel cd; Hero Arts: sentiment;
Ink: Distress inks; archival: black;
Dies: Sizzix: flower daisies; circles; border punch;
Other: Greyboard; glossy accents; Offray: satin ribbon; lace; 3D foam;




Thank you so much for stopping by, now if you get the chance tomorrow I have set a fun challenge for Club Anya so hope you will come and see!!! BiG HuGs, Kim :)
