Happy Mother’s Day! (this post was supposed to be completed and go live last Sunday) 😉

I wanted to make Mom a very special card for Mother’s Day and thought it was a good time to try making rosettes. They seem to be all the rage right now in the paper crafts world, so I was finally trying this trend! I used my Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge because it has 7 or so different rosettes to choose from. I cut two strips out and scored them with a Martha Stewart score board and stylus, and used a hot glue gun to attach the pieces together and then to attach the rosette to the card. In order to cover the seams where the two pieces joined, I added some sweet buttons (CTMH Buttons Pink Assortment) and some sparkly Pink Glitter Gems to the rosette. For the center of the rosette, I used my CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut a shape that was similar to the stamps I used from my Perfect Fit—Mom acrylic stamp set.

I used Buttercup and Cotton Candy CTMH cardstock and Chantilly (my FAVORITE) paper for this card, which was inspired by a past Monday Mojo card sketch.blog - World's Greatest Mom 2013 card

Here is the card sketch that inspired my card:

Since this was a sketch from earlier this year, I didn’t play along and enter the contest or link to the blog post – but that’s OK. I just love all of the inspiration I get from those Mojo Monday card sketches!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Mother’s Day. I love my mom very much and I am very blessed to have the perfect mom designed for me. 🙂 God definitely knew what He was doing when He created me for my parents, because I wouldn’t ask for anyone else to have raised me. <3

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
