Ellen Hutson Heat Embossing

Card for my Mama for Mothers Day


Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! Today’s post is dedicated to my mom! She is smart, beautiful and put up with me for all these years!  She is also the best Grammie around! So I whipped up this card for inspired by the black/white theme with a few pops of color. The gold stripes and sentiment was made with THIS embossing powder. The sentiment (thank you for helping me grow into who I am today) was stamped in Onyx Black pigment ink so I could heat set it with some clear embossing powder so the sentiment would pop against the page. I also did the same thing with the sentiment on the inside!


I can’t get enough of this texture spray! It comes in a billion different colors, but I chose to go with this soft pink color again….. It’s just so pretty paired with the black and gold I think.   The gold strip and polka dotted washi tape strips were cut down and adhered to create a fun border on the left hand side of the card.  And finally, I scattered on just a few sequins and ink flicks with my black ink…


Before I go, I know this day will be hard on some of you. You may have lost your moms. I have two very close friends of mine that lost their moms unexpectantly at the end of last year.  I hope you can take some peacing in knowing they are looking down on you and BEAMING with pride about who you are and what you have become and continue to become as each day passes. You are their greatest treasure and accomplishment…. And nothing will ever change that… My thoughts and prayers are with you all on this day that might be difficult for you.
