Thinking of Mother!

I hope you have been enjoying the showcase of the wonderful Sabor Papers this month here on the blog so far.........if you have popped over to the Altered Pages Store you may have noticed that these fun and festive papers are out of stock.  It came as no surprise to me that these papers have sold out given their wonderful bright jewel tones - they are perfect for almost any celebration and occasion.  They are back now and ready for you.

Lyneen used one of my favorite of these papers yesterday with her fabulous shoe make !

I will have to wait however for the new stocks of the Sabor to arrive so until then I thought I would today share a couple of cards using the lovely images on the Beauties Through Time Collage Sheet and a Classic Color Combination.

Last week was both my mother's and my husband's mother's birthdays so Mum's have been on my mind and Mother's Day is just around the corner, on May 8th this year.

So I used some simple elements, mixing them up to create two different cards perfect for that special woman in your life.

Both cards started with a black card base and a layer of Vintage Black and White Paper, followed by a torn embossed piece of black cardstock, a scalloped punched border and punched heart cut from red cardstock and the chosen Collage Image, finishing with a loving sentiment.

Changing the position, orientation and adding a little ink in different places created two very different looks.  It's a great way to create in quantity when time is of the essence which seems to be all the time for me of late.

It was this lovely image  on my first card that inspired the choices of color and papers.  A touch of silver Delicata Ink was used around the edges and smeared across the torn embossed cardstock to highlight the design and add further interest.

And I just had to use this second image as it actually reminded me of my mother and a photo I have of her in her early twenties.  She is now 80.

Thanks for stopping by.
