Now onto Marci and Doris’ amazingly inspiration projects for the 1st day of our blog hop.
Hi this is Marci Isn’t this just great?!- A collaboration of Creative Embellishment & Petaloo! Come and join us for fun and a chance to win some great prizes! Here is the project I created! It is of my mother and myself at Mir-a-lago in Palm Beach Florida this past January for a fundraiser. It was fun to get a glimpse of this famous place! Creative Embellishments products: smile (happy word set) , Flourish circle frame, and “shine” flair: I LOVE natural chipboard so I left both natural to add a “pop” to this page! Petaloo Products: Darjeeling Petites-teal, Darjeeling Petites-pink, Darjeeling Dahlias-pink and Darjeeling mini butterflies-pink.
I’m thrilled that I got to participate in this awesome product swap between two amazing companies! Creative Embellishments’ fabulous laser cut chipboard, rubber stamps, etc. work beautifully with Petaloo products! Both are so much fun to create with! For my Mother’s Day project, I went in a different direction. Rather than something to gift to my mother or mil, I decided to create something for one of my children (now I’ll also have to create something for each of the others! LOL). Without my little ones, I would not get to be a mother and I’m thankful for this incredible honor. I do understand and appreciate the fact that not everyone who wants to have children are able to for various reasons, so I’m grateful to have each of them in my life. They’re so unique and talented in their own special ways and I love their similarities as well was their differences…even when they’re driving me nuts. LOL For this canvas, I used the CE Grunge Music Note Sheet Stamp with glossy medium to create a resist for the background. I then used Lindy’s Stamp Gang, Tattered Angels, and Maya Road Mists to add color to the background, then finished by using the CE Distressed Text Stamp and Distressed Corner Stamp with Staz-on ink to add more texture and visual layers. I altered the Leafy Corner Flourish Set, “Mother” from the Holiday Sentiment Word Set, and Scribble Heart by coating them first with white gesso, then applying Distress stains and paints. To decorate the Julie Nutting stamp by Prima, I stamped, fussy cut, then paper pieced from plain and patterned paper, added a bit of Webster’s Pages trim, colored her hair using PITT markers, and added shading to the doll and dress with distress inks. These are gorgeous Petaloo produts I got to work with from their Darjeeling collection: Dahlias (package of 10)- Teastained Purple, Dahlias – Teastained Teals, Garden Rosette (package of 6 plus 6 leaves) – Pink, Petites (package of 12 plus 12 leaves)- Teastained Purple, Petites – Teastained Teals, Petites – Teastained Pink, and Mini Butterflies (package of 8)- Teastained Purple. I loved that the Rosettes and packets of Petites came with leaves to go with them!

So very springlike. Lovely art.
Adorable, and the placement of embellishments is perfect.
I wish my mom was a alive to make a layout like that!! Love the adorable Julie Nutting card as well!!
Very cute and fun! It is putting me in a Spring mood even with the weather outside thinking it is Winter! Thank you for the chance to win!
Such an enchanting layout and card! LOVE those pretty blooms and that fabulous frame!!
Got to get some flowers! Beautiful! Love all of the embellishments! Those colors though!
I really like the brick wall background. I actually found a wall like that in an alley near where I work. I take my out of town visitors to that wall to take beautiful pictures. We don’t tell anyone that the photo was taken in the alley. The look of the card is so wonderful with the flowers. I am gathering tools and equipment now because my retirement is just around the corner and I plan on crafting a lot. Thank you for the wonderful ideas.a
