This week's CAS65 Challenge is May Flowers or Mother's Day. With Mother's Day coming up (and flower cards posted yesterday!), I thought I'd share a couple of cards using the mother's sentiment from PTI's Quilter's Sampler set.
First up, a four-square grid on a scalloped square. Love my big ol' punches to add a little something to a very basic layout. Coloring these little quilt blocks is tedious, so stamping each in a different color and punching them out is really much easier.
Next, a one-layer card using Paper Salon's stitches set. I wanted this second card to be completely flat, but it really needed tweaking. Not sure about the button, though. Something about this card bothers me. Maybe the button needs to be bigger. Or maybe the card was a good idea that shouldn't have seen the light of day. Whatever.
An editorial comment about Paper Salon tins...I do not care for Paper Salon tins because the stamps are unmounted rubber on some sort of cling that DOES NOT CLING. Sigh. Pain in the backside. I think the company went out of business and perhaps this explains why. The images in this set are really useful, so I have kept it rather than pitching it in the trash. Maybe I should take the rubber off the foam and just use the tack-it glue. Oh, the effort that would require....
See, I'm selectively lazy. I have no problem making HUNDREDS of cards a year but coloring tiny quilt blocks or taking rubber off foam is TOO MUCH OF A BOTHER. I'd much rather complain about how tedious the coloring or how annoying the non-clinging cling is. How sad is that?
Please don't answer that question. It was purely rhetorical.
