Mother's Day in Aqua

One of the delights of my life is spending time with my grandchildren.  Over the past couple of days, I've had my four year old little man, Aiden, keeping me company while Mom and Dad are at work.  It's not often he is here so it's a real treat for me but I try to get certain things done before he takes over my day.

For the next few days, I'll be sharing Mother's Day cards made for my daughters-in-law and a friend.  The one today features the ombre background technique and the new Stampin' Up!® Blendabilities alcohol markers.  They will be available in the new catalog on June 2nd in a variety of colors.  The color set I chose for this card is Coastal Cabana.

Stamp Sets:  Everything Eleanor, Teeny Tiny Wishes (Stampin' Up!); Inks:  Soft Sky, Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding (Stampin' Up!); Blendabilities:  Coastal Cabana (Stampin' Up!); Card Stock:  Whisper White (Stampin' Up!); Accessories & Tools:  Rhinestones

The rhinestones are colored with the alcohol marker from lightest to darkest.  You can see it best on the three on the lower right.  The top ones all look the same but that's because I didn't set my lights right when I took the photo.  Another lesson learned on my journey into photo taking.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,
