Blooming with Kindness Happy Mother's Day

Today I'm sharing with you a Mother's Day card I made using a image from the Blooming with Kindness stamp set and I used one of the new In Colors called Strawberry Slush...yummy! I also used some cardstock in the same color.

I usually don't make Mother's Day cards because my mom is no longer around for me to shower her with thanks, but I wanted to let someone know that I was thinking of her so I made one this year. I knew I wanted to add some ribbon to this card but I didn't have any in the color that I needed, but I did have ink refill in that particular color so I made my own shade by using the refill. I took the color...strawberry slush and 1/4 cup of water and a few drops of the refill and swished the ribbon around in the solution. I took it out and dried the excess on a paper towel, it should probably dry over night...but I needed it pretty quick, so I did the next best thing and dried it with my heat tool...for the ribbon that I was using it was ok to do this, if it had of been something not so forgiving, I would have let it dry overnight. Here's is the finished card.

Can you see that I embossed with my Framelits? What a fun technique that was! Perhaps I should do a photo tutorial, big thanks to Connie Stewart for sharing how to do that technique. A great way to get more use out of our tools!
