I had the chance to do a little stamping this afternoon and decided to pull out some more of my new Verve stamps so I could play along with the current Mojo Monday challenge. I love this week's sketch! I used the Wishing You stamp set for the sentiment in the circle and the Celebrating You stamp set for the sentiment on the ribbon slide die cut. I love those fonts and I love that you can combine the "wishing you" with the other sentiments to create the sentiment you want. I used some patterned papers from October Afternoon's Daydream line.
I stamped the sentiments on white cardstock with versafine onyx black ink and die cut them with circle nestabilty die and a ribbon slide die. Then, I sponged antique linen distress ink on the die cuts before removing them from the dies. I also sponged some antique linen and tea dye distress inks on the edges of my patterned papers before stitching them to their black mats. I hand cut the black mat layer on the ribbon slide and used a scalloped circle nestability die for the black scalloped circle mat. I added some charcoal baker's twine from my etsy shop and some white Prima roses and some leaves cut with a Martha Stewart frond leaf punch.
We are off tomorrow to go for a picnic and drive in the woods. We always go mushrooming on Mother's Day. I just love getting away with my family. The weather here has been too cold and rainy so we probably won't find many mushrooms, but just getting out for a drive and having a picnic is always fun, too.
Have a Happy Sunday and a Happy Mother's Day!
