Addicted to CAS Challenge #136 - Mom/Mum


Hi there blog friends ~ It's time for another challenge at ATCAS and just in time for Mother's Day our code word is 'Mom/Mum'! Ceal is our Hostess, the super talented Rachel Bergfeld is our Guest Designer and the winner of this challenge will receive a $20.00 GC from Happy Little Stampers!


I was so excited to win an Altenew GC from Virginia Lu's Blog a few weeks ago, so I could finally buy this alpha die set :) I stamped flowers from PTI and Lawn Fawn and stopped at varying heights to hopefully add dimension to this card. It's been a long cold winter here on the east coast, so I really enjoyed taking out some spring colors for the flowers and leaves. The alphas are inlaid and stacked 3 high on a scalloped frame...a few sparkly sequins and this card was done and dusted!
  
Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies:
Stamps: PTI - Mini Blooms; Lawn Fawn - Penelope's Blossoms
Dies: Altenew - Bold Alphabet Dies; Mama Elephant - Femme Frames

Fabulous card Barb, I was just watching some you tube on making cards with big letters and the partial stamping. Love it

Barb, I have had this technique in my head for the better part of a week. I'm reorganizing my crafty space right now, but will definitely give it a go soon.

Love the colors you chose and the images, perfectly sized so we know what they are and they add such a lovely bit of color. Almost the exact opposite of a camouflage technique.

Barb this is such a pretty card, I love how you cut the die so it is only stamped along the bottom on the word!

This is so pretty Barb! Love how you've stamped the flowers along the bottom of the die-cut MOM. So clever and creative. Beautiful spring colours. xx
