One of the first stamps that caught my eye in the new Occasions Catalogue was the single stamp Love Is Kindness. I thought it was really pretty and would make a feature on a stamp without much else on the card. Having said that, the first card I made with it used quite a lot of new product!
Isn't it great? I carried over the newspaper theme to the background, by using the Dictionary Background stamp.
I coloured the tulip image using some of the new Blendabilities - Pink Pirouette and Wild Wasabi. I also used the Smoky Slate set to create some highlights on the newspaper. I'm loving the new, softer colours in the Blendabilities.
As I made this card I thought that it would make a great Mother's Day card too. I wanted to test out the theory, so I made a second card.
I used the retired For My Family stamp set for the sentiment on the second card. What do you think? Is it better as a birthday card or a Mother's Day card?
Bye for now,
