Embrace Life - Trigger Tuesday challenge

 I just LOVE Cath's Blog Moxie Fab World ! There is always fabulousness on it! Every Tuesday she posts an inspiration piece ala' the one above and invites papercrafters to be inspired to create something based on the picture. Fun Right? It's called the Tuesday Trigger - HERE is the link to the specific post - you still have time to participate! So here is my creation triggered by this picture - I think the inspiration is pretty obvious.
I like the damask and the colors! The background is Vintage Flourish by Stampabilities that I got either at Mikes or HL. I stamped it several times in Hawaiian Shores on Hawaiian Shores cardstock to create the background. The image and sentiment are both from the SU set Embrace Life and I received them through PIF or Wish RAK I don't remember which . I colored in the blooms with some Raspberry Fizz ink I smeared on a stamp case then picked up with my water brush. I cut out the image and it's matte using my rectangle nestabilities. The sentiment I punched out with SU's new Decorative Label punch and sponged the edges with Raspberry Fizz ink. I wanted to try out my new waffle paper from SU so I attempted using my Fiskars Threading Water border punch. It did not go very well though it totally could have been user error! If anyone has any tips on using waffle paper I would LOVE to hear them! Then to cover the edge I used some bitty dotted Hawaiian Shores Ribbon. Thanks for looking and why not join me in the challenge!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
