Bonjour et Hello!

I love this faux leather tecnique.
I just did a subtle faux leather on the vase to add texture to the card.

I fussy cut the vase of paint brushes. then cut between the bristles 
to make them more authentic to a paint brush, 
Wink a Stella on the "metal" portion of the brush and popped it up with dimensionals

Inside the card
I stamped the sentiment and then cut a slit above it.
Stamped, coloured and fussy cut the sicissors (cut out the holes of the handle, too)
I used Wink a Stella over the Smoky Slate scissor blades
Slipped the bottom of the blade through the slit and adhered the scissors.

SS: Crafting Forever; Painters Palette
CS: Emerald Envy, Soft Suede; Whisper White
Ink: Emerald Envy, Soft Suede; Peek-a-boo Peach; Cajun Craze
Smokey Slate; Sahara Sand; Crushed Curry
others:  Wink of Stella; Aqua Painter; Basic Rhinetones, Dimentionals
 and a whole lot of love

Z OR ZED.....

Bonjour et Hello!

If you're American this is a Z(ee) fold card
If you're in Canada this is a Z(ed) fold card
Regardless of which way you say it, this is a fun fold card

Here is a close up of the bubbles filled with Fine Tip Glue Pen

I used the Black Marker to create a line in the white wine glass and 
filled the "wine" with Fine Tip Glue Pen

A masculine version of a Z Fold Card

 Bonjour et Hello!

Welcome to the Seashore Stamper Mother's Day Blog Hop!

I used a fun technique to create my Mother's Day card using the Touches of Texture stamp set.

Stamped with VersaMark and used White embossing powder.
Used blender pen and coloured my flowers with Craft White Ink.
Once the ink dried, I used the blender pen and coloured on top of the white 
with Melon Mambo, Pacific Point and Rich Razzleberry ink pads
The leaves are coloured with the Old Olive Markers
 I "blotted" the ink off with a paper towel because some of the
colour would be resisting from the embossed images
 I filled in only the flower with  the Fine Tip Glue Pen to raise the flower.
The "buds"  I kept flat
 Basic Pearl in the center of each flower.  
Stampin' Dimensionals when placing on the base of the card.
