Hello and happy Kitchen Sink Monday everyone~
I hope you had a fabulous Mother’s day Sunday! My kids made strawberry cupcakes for me :):) They were so yummy and absolutely cute!! I attach the photo on the bottom if you want to check out :)
Today is my brother’s birthday! I haven’t celebrated his birthday together for over 15 years…Sometimes I wish I just fly to Tokyo to see him and back in one day…:( I miss him so much!! I hope he is having a wonderful birthday with his wife and 2 beautiful daughters!
Today’s card is a little different from ones I always create for KS Monday. After I saw the this tutorial by Beate Johns, I just had to try the beautiful 3D flowers for myself :):) I don’t have the same die she used but I found out I could cut flowers from my neglected Cricut machine! I used flower 2 (Shadow Blackout) from Georgia cartridge. I followed the tutorial HERE by Kathy Files. She has some great ideas using Cricut machine…and I got a lot of inspirations from her blog and video. I’m sure my hubby will be so happy if I start using the machine more ;) My daughter, Kimberly also loves to make those dimension flowers, too!!
After I cut the flowers with the distress designer paper from Basic Gray, I stamped with 3 Step Letter from the Past and Big & Bold Swashes and inked on the back with brayer. Then I started building the rose. You can easily customize your roses with some stamping and inking :):)
The sentiment from 3 Step Hearts & Roses was simply stamped on the white mat and the mat was dry embossed with the embossing folder.
