5/2 Stampin' Up! Messages for Mom

I love this card . . . I was inspired by my friend Debbie McNeill in one of her recent newsletters that she creates for demos to send to their customers. My customers made this card at a recent Big Shot Class and some of them modified it for a birthday card. What's really neat about the set soon to be retired set called "Messages for Mom" . . . is that there are multiple sentiments that you can use to customize your card. I also used another soon to be retired stamp set called "I {heart} Hearts" for the heart image.

When you open the card up, the image swings with the card so you never lose sight of the creativity you put into the front panel . . . so very cool!

Stamping to Share Tip of the Day: Tone on tone, detailed over bold . . . give it a try by using a bold image stamp such as the one you see here from "I {heart} Hearts" inked up in a lighter color of ink (Wisteria Wonder in this case) and then over stamp it with a line image such as the floral spray in "Message for Mom" inked up in a darker ink tone (I used Concord Crush.) This creates a neat tone on tone look with very little work to it . . . as in no coloring! Sometimes coloring is fun and sometimes you are in a hurry and want to go for something simple.

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!!

Beautiful card - I love tone on tone, but I keep studying your two photos trying to figure out how to make that front panel!
