Happy Mother's Day PP240

These three colours are my all-time favourites of the retiring In Colors, and I've stocked up (hope you have too!).
I nearly ran out of time to complete my card for the Paper Players colour challenge, thanks Joanne for these lovely colours, but after I'd done my exercise this afternoon, instead of lying down for a very tempting 'Nana nap', I've gone and put the various pieces together.

I've used Pictogram Punches a lot lately, because it is the stamp we're using at my class this month, and I like to show examples of its versatility. This means that there's likely to be a spare or two from the stamp set already stamped when I come to put a card together. Saves a bit of time, especially when they're the right colours!

I really enjoy punching out those cute little flowers, stars and hearts - and did you know that Something To Say has another 3 of those images in it as well? The vase has to be cut by hand, but it's easy enough, and even the three stems don't present too much of a challenge. The polaroid frame was already cut from  Coaster Board from when I was designing my Convention Swaps, but I chose to use the film frame instead on those. On Film Framelits have a couple of these handy shapes.

Speaking of handy shapes, I'm finding the tiny shapes in the Perpetual Birthday Calendar come in handy too. When I get more organised, I think that stamp set will prove to be very useful for making journalling cards for Project Life.

  1. I'm sure the 'nana nap' was tempting, but I'm glad you decided to make something with my colours instead - your clean and CAS card is lovely! I love that framed vase of flowers, but for me the star of the show is the bubbled background - I couldn't wait to see how you created it and it's a great alternative use for this stamp! Thanks for joining in with my colour challenge over at The Paper Players this week!

  2. A beautiful clean and simple card, Rachel! I love how you used the challenge colors...and how you framed the focal image. How clever to use the shapes in the Perpetual Birthday Calendar set! Thanks for playing at the Paper Players this week!

  3. Rachel, this is such a pretty CAS card! The flowers are so pretty and I love the bubbled background! Thank you very much for joining us at The Paper Players this week! XX
