A Sneak Peek for Mother's Day

First of all, and most important:  Aly and Sarah, if you want to be surprised for Mother's Day, leave this page NOW!

OK, for the rest of you, I have a fun Mother's Day card and a sneak peek of a new Stampin' UP! set to be released June 1.  I received this great stamp set at the Stampin' UP! OnStage Live (another name for convention) in  April, and couldn't wait to start playing with it.  Are you ready to see what I did?

(my apologies for the quality of the photos; I took these at night in my kitchen, and didn't realize how fuzzy they looked.  Unfortunately the cards have been mailed, so I can't re-take the pics, but you get the idea)
I made two cards for my daughter and daughter-in-law, two of the most wonderful moms I know!  So they had to be special, right?

This new set, Marquee Messages, was a perfect way to express my feelings about how "awesome" they are!  And I also got a chance to experiment with some of the new In Colors for 2016-2018:  Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo!

I stamped the marquee image using Memento Black ink, once on Flirty Flamingo, again on Peekaboo Peach, and one last time in Mint Macaron (what a yummy combination!).  I also stamped the "You Are" on the top and "Awesome!" across the banner. Then I paper-snipped the three main pieces and reassembled them on the front of my card (after running a piece of Whisper White through my Big Shot with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder).

I love the little sentiment on the bottom...isn't that cute?

Of course, no marquee is complete without a ton of lights, right?  So I added 39 Rhinestone Basic Jewels (yes, I counted each one) to both of the cards, and I also added some Dazzling Diamonds to the stars on the banners.

The top layer is popped up on Dimensionals to give it a bit of depth.  The card base is Whisper White Thick cardstock.

Happy Mother's Day, Aly and Sarah!  You guys ROCK!
