Beautiful for Mother’s Day – by Deb Saaranen

Good Sunday morning, everyone!

I’m not quite sure if Deb made this beautiful card for Mother’s Day or not, but to me it is an absolutely beautiful Mother’s Day card, though it could surely be used for an ‘anytime’ card, too. The soft colors and the vintage appeal are all just so wonderful! Take a look:

HehasMadeEverythingRose 540x522

Deb white embossed her rose and then watercolored it with Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

I love the soft look achieved!

The Hemstitch Oval die is perfect here!

And Deb added her signature scrunchy seam binding bow with a beautiful stick pin by Darsie Bruno.

    Beautiful. Love the paper used, and the soft look. I noticed she used the Tim Holtz stamp platform. I just got mine, and I have to say, I love it more than I thought I would!

    • I know, Barb! Use it once and you are hooked. Haven’t we, as stampers, become so spoiled by all the wonderful things available! It is now coming out in a smaller size. I should have those in stock next week, I do believe, if you know anyone else who might like one.
