Mother's Day #2

In keeping with sending my Mom a card every day for the week before Mother's Day, here is card #2.

The WT challenge today was to use chipboard, which I have, but never use. This is from Maya Road, and I covered two flowers in dp. Sanded, then layered, and finished off with a brad.

I try to make each of the cards for my Mom different. I just got this Trio punch from my new SU order, and CarrollAnn has the best way to use the flowers, so I did what she did!! I hope you like it.

THT047 Faux Birthday

Happy Thursday! Today's featured member of the Treehouse Design Team is Gloria Morizen, who challenged us to make a Birthday Card using a FAUX technique.

The technique I chose is Faux stitching. The image I used is a FREE colored cupcake from Ashley, our fearless leader (it's the May contest digi!)

The card is really easy. I downloaded the colored image twice, and cut one out to pop. Of course I had to use RED as a bg color, along with white and turquoise. I used my new Fiskar's edge punch, and faux stitched in turquoise around the panel.

Please feel free to join us, and attach your card or project to Mr. Linky at

so we can see it, and maybe you will win some free stuff from the website!! Please look at what the whole DT has done by clicking on their names on my sidebar. See you next Thursday!!
