Mom... You're The Best!
This is another card using the new Kindred Spirit range of sets ... the first of which are available as of today from Gina K Designs. This is a brand new concept when it comes to purchasing stamps as you have a choice from lots of different versions of the same stamp depending on which one suits your needs. The women stamps are sold as single stamps, deeply etched rubber on cling vinyl, ready to be trimmed and used with acrylic blocks. The words are in a set that can be used with all of the Kindred spirits and many other stamps they already have. It is sold separately and comes in a tin.
While this image could very well be suitable to give to someone who is a mother .... there is so many other uses for this stamp .... and it is funny that co-incidentally this image is called Rebecca ... as it soooo suits my youngest daughter who works with children this age in her role as a teacher / child care worker.
For my card I used this week's Mojo sketch that can be found on Julee's of Poetic Artistry's blog. The soft sky base of this card was embossed using my fantasy floral cuttlebug embossing folder. I paper pierced the top corners of the main image piece. This particular sketch calls for something to be added to the lower right corner ... on the original sketch Julee uses a star shape to indicate we need to add something and I was going to with something different .... however my star punch which is new was jumping around in my drawer saying pick me pick me!..... and when I thought about it the star so suited the theme of this card .... so as you can see that is what I ended up using.
