Because I Said So!

By Debbie Seyer - A Peek Into My Stamping Room

Here is a card I made using a new release from DRS called I Said So Mother's Day Greeting. It made me laugh out loud when I first saw it. I used another DRS stamp for this card. On the background paper, I stamped the Love Is Patient text background using Antique Linen Distress ink. It's hard to see in this picture but it really adds that extra "something" to this damask patterned paper.

For the flowers, I used a technique shown to me by my friend, Heidi. This flower was made from dried baby wipes - yes, you read that right, BABY WIPES! First, I took some baby wipes out of the container and let them dry completely. Then I die cut them using a set of scalloped circle die templates. After that, I stamped the circles using Rich Cocoa Memento ink and the Love Is Patient greeting. I then swiped my Aqua Mist stamp pad over the flowers to add some color. Here is a picture of what they looked like at this point.

After getting the scalloped circles to the color I wanted, I put them together using a brad. I spritzed them with some Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist to give them that extra something!

I think it turned out great! I love this technique because its inexpensive and fun to make these flowers! You should give it a try.

Here is another card I made using the I Said So Mother's Day Greeting and the Silhouette Branch Background.

Hope you had a great Mother's Day!
