Stampin' Up!, Blog Hop, BJ Peters, Mother's LoveWelcome to this month's Blog Hop!   The Theme (if you haven't figured it out) is "Congratulations."  Here is my take on a simple but elegant congratulations card.

Mother's Love, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Blog HopI used the Mother's Love stamp set, which is on sale this week!  How convenient! It was stamped and then embossed with white embossing powder.  It is stamped on vellum cardstock which is then mounted on our Whisper White cardstock. 

Mothers Love, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Blog Hop, Occasions I colored on the backside of the vellum with our Stampin' Write markers.  Strawberry Slush and Pear Pizzaz.  It really pops with the white background.  To secure the vellum to the Whisper White cardstock, I placed glue dots behind the flowers and leaves. 

Mothers Love, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Occasions, Blog HopI highlighted this with a slim edge of Strawberry Slush cardstock that is popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals from the card base.   The "congratulations" is from the Big News stamp set.  I stamped it in Strawberry Slush and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Which you can do with our new firm foam pads! 

Strawberry Slush is one of the 2013-2015 In Colors and it will be retiring next month!   In fact the retired list posts on April 21.  Make sure you check back then for it. . . . but, I strongly encourage you to get any of the 2013-2015 In Color items that you want before that date!  Stock up on cardstock, ink pads, ink refills, Baker's twine, Sequins, and more!
