I missed the last SUO Card Challenge; so, I made sure I had my card finished ahead of time. What a great card challenge to celebrate the mothers in our lives. My mother was a very sweet person and a crafting whiz in her own rights. Her area of expertise was sewing. She could sew anything. In fact, she made slipcovers for her sofa and it looked upholstered (in other words, she was REALLY good at sewing).
For this challenge, along with the Mother’s Day theme I chose to use a color challenge from another website. The colors for their challenge are: Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, and Pool Party. I also wanted to use a stamp set I rarely use but really like. I chose the Peachy Keen SU! stamp set. Once I started on the card, I realized I didn’t have any Crushed Curry cardstock; so, I went digging in my DSP stash and used the Crushed Curry background paper from Color Me Autumn. I guess there’s more than one way to skin a cat. I didn’t have a cute “mom” stamp either. To work around this obstacle, I printed the word MOM onto Calypso Coral cardstock and then cut out the heart using the hearts framelits set. On the Whisper White cardstock I used to stamp “You’re Peach Keen,” I took Crushed Curry ink and lightly stenciled some diagonal lines to give the stamped area some depth. The rest of the card is pretty self-explanatory.
