I am so excited to blog hopping with you all,
happy to share with you my Mixed Media Card-to Celebrate Mom!!
I have a tutorial for you below...hope you all enjoy!
 I love using many different mediums on my cards...
 Just love this Petaloo flower (using up my leftovers from other projects).
"A family blossoms with a MOTHER'S love."
loving the texture...
How to take your Die~Namites Dies cut outs to the next level!!
Here are the Die~Namites Dies I used,
"Regal Heart"
Regal Heart
"Love Kite"
Love Kite
Step 1. take two die cuts
snip off the end of the heart die...(placing together makes
a new image...butterfly or flower).
Step 2. Cut card base at 6x6
Score at 3 inches and fold
I used Marion Smith Designs Garment District Paper Collection.
Step 3. Gesso the die cuts
a few times drying in between
Step 4. Adding Texture-brush multi-medium matte
on the die cut....then
 Step 5. dump embossing enamel on top then shake off...
 Step 6. Heat set
 There you have it...yummie texture
 Step 7. Stamp, gesso with stencil, distress edges of card..
add wood veneer piece down
cheese clothe, then add your textured die cut!
That is your base!!
 Here is the end result....mixed media card...

Now, head on over to Cathia Leblanc’s blog
to continue the hop.
Thank you for joining our blog hop!!
