Fabulous Florets in Regal Rose

Good Day Inky People!

Well as promised I am back with another post and a new card.  I am a card making machine!  I am trying to get ahead a little bit on my cards as I have several to make for Mother's day for some requests.

Holy smokes Mother's Day is coming up next week!  Oh and I have a Birthday coming up!  May 12th!!!

 I unlike most people look forward to my B-Day! :O)  I will be 99.   I tell everyone I am that old because if you tell them you are 29 they just wink and don't believe you, but if you tell them you are older than you REALLY are they look at you and say "WOW you look fabulous for your age!!!"  So I want to look really great for my age - therefore I'm 99!!   (NOT)

I want to be one of those old ladies that my grand children (or grand child) look at and say "What a hip old lady"  I love new music, New ideas, I embrace change and new technology.

I know one thing though - I am going to be a hip grandmother,  I have all the coolest craft stuff (Stampin' Up!) I have all the animated movies.  I've been collecting them for years for just this reason,  (That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it)  and I can bake.  I think those are all the requirements of a good grandma don't you?

 My daughter is really starting to look pregnant, and according to the Dr.'s  the baby is now 2 lbs 4 oz.  August 4th come on!  I don't want to wish away the summer but hey it's exciting right?  I can't wait! 

Anyway back to the card (the only thing you are interested in I'm sure) -

Here you go -

I saw something similar somewhere on the net and thought it was beautiful.  Here's how I did it - I stamped the image with versamark ink on Pretty in Pink and then embossed it with White Embossing Powder.

  I used a sponge dauber inked up with Regal Rose and swirled the color in the middle of the flowers.  Then I cut them out and popped them up with dimensionals.  Isn't it lovely?  I wanted a simple Mother's day card for my class today and this is beautiful and simple.

Here is a close up of the flowers.  Nice eh! 

So that's it for today!  I will chat with you later.  Hip Grandmother hugs!


  1. Katherine I love this card! I saw it on Stampin' Connection and checked in to your blog for the details. They were exactly what I needed for mother's cards for my mum and mother in law. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I saw this card on SCS and just had to follow it to your blog. This is beautiful! Your flowers are gorgeous. This card certainly doesn't appear "simple". You've a lot of talent.
