Friends of WMS Blog Waltz - Mother's Day

Welcome to the 2nd Friends of WMS Blog Waltz! It's all happening over at the Play Room in The Waltzingmouse Forum. The theme for today's Waltz is Mother's Day!


I used several WMS stamp sets on my card today - The lovely quote is from Roses in Bloom, the daffodils on the front (that I stamped, then masked and stamped again 3 times) and sentiment on the inside are from Spring Baskets. The fun stitched border

is from Off Beat Backgrounds (I just love this stamp!) The little heart stamped on the quote is from Earth Angel. The DP is one of Claire's great digital's - Victoriana Papers. I used the stitched background again on the inside of my card to frame the sentiment and punched two strips of the digital patterned paper for top and bottom.


Now go back and look at my card and see how many little round white flowers I've 'hidden' on my card. (NOT the daffodils!) You need to add up the flowers that all the DT members have hidden on their Blog Waltz cards and enter that number over at the WMS forum in the Playroom - Claire will pick a winner from all the correct guesses! See all the deets on Claire's blog.

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Off Beat Backgrounds, Roses in Bloom, Spring Baskets, Earth Angel
Paper: Vintage Cream, White - PTI, DP - WMS Digital Victoriana
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Lavender Moon - PTI
Accessories: Glue dot, foam dimensionals, Fancy Tags Shapeabilities, butterfly punch -Martha Stewart, Top Note Die - SU, Eclipse Tape for masking, EK success edge punch.

I LOVE LOVE that field of daffodils you made! Your card is so timeless and elegant. That nestie bracket is beautiful around the sentiment, as are all of those faux stitches!

What a lovely card, Julia! I couldn't believe the stitching was a stamp and not really stitched with thread! I'll have to check that one out...love it!

Beautiful card, love how you've done your daffs on the front.

Lynn Mercurio said...

Oh my, but this is just a fantastic creation Julia. I simply adore your design with your card front of posies. I'm really taken with the stitching of the Offbeat Background set. I think that is the ONE set of Claire's that I don't have. I'm going to have to fix that!!! Outstanding job.
