Mix Up the Supplies

Hello friends!
Sometimes when I am stuck with ideas as to what to make next, I would just take a look at my craft desk and see what is "available". Today's card is a good example. I started out with a piece of watercolor card stock that I created with Kuretake Watercolors (36).
 Cute Cluster (Paper Smooches)

This Cute Cluster Die is fun and whimsical and works with any style! I had paired it up with pattern paper, Distress Crayons, vellum, alcohol inks and glitter in the past.
See my samples below.
love you
Mom I love you
thank you
With the Mother's Day Special over SSS, now is the good time to get Cute Cluster.

Here is my latest card with this die.

I took out some oldies (the Friendly Butterfly is from on old/retired set from Simon Says Stamp--sorry, no links).
I also went to town with the ink splatter (Wink of Stella, Gold) and gold strings...
I think I got my mojo back and am much happier when I make some pretty stuff :)

  In case you are shopping, the code for Simon Says Stamp is "Breezy". It will take $5 off for purchase over $5 or more (valid till June 15)! 
Lastly, how about some great savings from Simon Says Stamp
Here is the latest arrival of stamps.

I am a blessed Mom and Daughter. I am very thankful for my Mom's and mother-in-law's health and well-being.
 Happy Mother's Day!

Love that kraft card base juxtaposed again the golden touches and lovely color. Clever of you to nestle the strings and butterfly into that sweet die's aperture.

A very happy Mother's Day to you Virginia. The photos are great. Isn't it fun to look back....always such a pleasure. I love your card. I think it's the vine added that so pleases my eyes. Thank you.
