Mommy Needs Some Creating Time...

It's been awhile since I have been in my stamp room and stamped "just to stamp." For no other reason than I needed to use the creative part of my brain. My days are filled with feedings, diaper changes, playing with my 4 year old, and cooing at my baby. :) Not much time for much else. Yesterday my 4 year old had a friend over and my baby was asleep so I ran to my room for 10 mins. I hurried and tried to come up with something fun. This is not my best creation at all...but I saw the ribbon that ended up on this card laying on my table and built the card around that. Here it is...
The flower pot is from the Cupcake stamp set that is in the mini catalog (that ends THIS SATURDAY...April 30th!!!!). I stamped one of the cupcake bottoms in Early Espresso ink on Early Espresso cardstock and punched it out. I used that for the flower base. Then I just punched out some flowers using the Itty Bits Punch Pack and glued them on. Added some of the tiny pearls in the centers. Now...do NOT look close at the ribbon cutout that I did. Needed to check on the girls at this point so just had to hurry up. But hopefully you can tell everything else that I did. Here are some close-up's...



Color comb is Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, Early Espresso, Old Olive, and Crumb Cake. Probably my most used color combo. :)


Thanks for visiting! Hope you enjoy!!!
