Mother's Day with powdered chalk

Happy Mother's Day to all of your saintly women that  someone calls mom. You have the hardest job in the world and may you reap the many rewards that your job can bring.

For my card today I used THIS flowers in a barrel stamp by Stamp N Plus, which I heat embossed with a goldish colored embossing powder. I then colored it in with a medium by combining powdered chalk and paint together. I just love the Stamp N Plus paint they have HERE. It gives my project an added sparkle. 

I also used the chalk/paint mixture on the yellow colored die cut. So not only can you "color" with the chalk but you can use it as a background.

The sentiment stamps are also by Stamp N Plus but are not on the website. Below my card I have a picture of the stamp sheet you can order. I combined some of the words to create my sentiment. You will see the many possibilities this set can be used for. It would also be fun for scrapbooking. See below.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my creations. I love reading your comments.

To order this sheet of sentiment stamps please call Luann at 715-271-1873. Tell her Cindy sent you.
