SIP #97 - Mother's Day Challenge with Stampin' Up! Perfect Mix

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  I hope everything is going well for you this week.  I had a nice relaxing weekend which made going back to work on Monday a bit easier.  We've had a lot of rain but hopefully that will bring forth some gorgeous May flowers!  My clematis and roses have already started blooming!  Jeff and I plan on doing some landscaping to our back yard this summer so I'll need to sit down and plan it out before we get started.  Planning it is the best part!  

Well since it is Tuesday, you know that means it's time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge and this week is all about Mother's Day!  

Have you ever seen a stamp set that you think is just so adorable that you have to have it.. well from the looks of my craft room, I see them all the time but Perfect Mix was one of those for me.  It's just an adorable stamp set with some cute sentiments.. some are even puns!  I love a good pun!

Here's how I used it today..

My card base is a SU Island Indigo 11" x 4 1/4" top folding card base, scored at 5 1/2.   I added a piece of 80# Neenah Classic Solar White Cardstock that was embossed with a Darice Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  The plaid paper on the bottom is Lawn Fawn Rainbow Perfectly Plaid.  I folded a portion of a doily over it.  I stamped everything on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Black Versafine Ink and heat set it.  I then used my Zig Clean Color Markers and an aqua painter to color in my images.  I fussy cut the bowl, spatula and mixer and adhered them to the front with foam tape.   For the measuring spoons and sentiment I cut it out with the the SU square layering dies and cut a scallop border out of Island Indigo.  I stamped "Mom" from the SU Thoughtful Banners stamp set under the measuring spoons and adhered it on the upper right side with more foam tape.  I ran some Natural Thread across the top and tied it in a small bow in the upper left side.  I used the side of my scissors to add a little curl to the bottom of twine.  

The inside sentiment is from the Oh So Succulent Stamp set.  I added a strip of the same plaid paper that I used on the front to the inside bottom.

Thanks a bunch for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
