Theme Week 1 : Day 5 of Mother's Day Cards

If you are back again today, please do leave a comment letting me know how much you liked and whether or not I should do this again. I'm think around round for father's day? Now that will be a challenge as I am not good with masculine cards!

For today's card, I kept it really simple. No fussy cutting required. Just stamping and coloring. I fell in love with this Hot off the Press stamp set after seeing a post on Craftwarehouse's instagram. Their customer service is so amazing that they responded immediately to my comments and let me know that they was one left at the location that I go to. I immediately got on the phone, and they were kind enough to put it on hold for me :)

So, I took the leap and have started exploring alcohol markers! I decided not to loose an arm and a leg and get copics ($4-7/per marker depending on where you shop and what deals you get), instead at a friend's recommendation I went with Spectrum Noir and so far I really like them. They come in packs of 6, so that you can blend and shade. I got the pinks and greens as I have mostly flower stamps. Guess how much? Both packs cost me $13.14 (love 60% off coupons at Joann's!!). And I think I love the results that I got.

I used memento tuxedo black to stamp the flowers. Make sure to let the ink dry to make sure that marker inks don't bleed. I was really happy with the results that I got and lets just say that I'll be keeping my eye on the Joann site for more 60% off coupons :D

And with that we come to the end of my first theme week!! I really hope that I inspired you to get crafty and creative! Thanks for following along :)
