Mom, You Are Special

Mother’s Day is getting closer. I am missing my mom more and more. She lives in a different country but I am so thankful for the technology, we can always Skype with her. I always hope one day we can celebrate this special day with her.

In this special week, I am working on cards for special moms I know 🙂 Today I would love to share with one of the cards I have been making:

I cut 4.25″ x 11″ Kraft Cardstock and scored in the middle to make the card base.

First, I heat embossed the flowers from Flowers For Mom stamp set. Before stamping the flower using VersaMark watermark ink pad, I rubbed the card with anti-static power all over the card so the embossing powder won’t stick everywhere, then stamped the flowers, added the Ranger Super Fine White Embossing Powder, and heat set it using Craft Heater.


Second step is stamping the sentiment. Using Black Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad, I stamped the sentiment from Flowers For Mom stamp set on the card base.

Next is adding the Chevron Ruby ribbon on the card (retired) using Tombow Mono Liquid Glue. It dries clear and quick.


On a piece of White Daisy Cardstock, I stamped the flowers and leaves from Have A Happy Day stamp set using Canary Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad (flowers) and Pear Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad (leaves). Then using my Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors, I cut them one by one and added them on the card using Tombow glue and 3D foam tape.

And then I stamped the saying from Flowers For Mom stamp set on the piece of White Daisy cardstock with Cotton Candy Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad, then I cut the dove tail using my Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors and added it on top of the ribbon using 3D foam tape. Then I finished the card with some Sparkles Clear AssortmentSequins Gold Assortments and couple of the pink glitter butterflies from Junebug Puffies (these cute puffies are still at While Supplies Last section, all items in this section is only available until they are all gone).

I was quite nervous but I took the challenge from Virginia’s View Challenge #14 – adding layers and dimensions to the project. Like the result 😀


Other Supplies:

My Acrylix Blocks: 1″ x 1″, 1″ x 3 1/2″, 2″ x 2″, 2″ x 3 1/2″

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother's Day

My mom is one of the greatest gifts God ever gave to me in my life.
For all these years, since I was conceived in her womb, born and now I have my own daughters, she is still my mom.

She never stop loving me.
She never stop helping me.
She never stop fighting for me.
She never stop correcting me when I do something wrong.
She never stop teaching me what being a mom means.
She never stop showing me what sacrifice means.
She never stop being a mom for me and my sisters.

She is a mom of daughters, too.

She is my mom.
She is my treasure.
She is my praise to God.

“Dear Mama, Happy Mother’s Day to my beloved and blessed mom, thought I cannot hug and kiss you today, I trust God is always with you, to bless you, to love you and to protect you. I am so thankful to be your daughter.”

Layout 2012: Me & My Girl

Me & My Girl

This is a layout I made early this morning. I just LOVE IT! Each picture is my favorite pictures of my girl and me.

In 2009 she was 3 months old and it was when we went to attend our friends’ wedding in Atlanta, GA. It was her first long road trip.

In 2010 she was 14 months old when we took her to Indonesia. That was her first trip on the airplane and our first 20 hours flight with a baby. It was quite an adventure for everyone.

In 2011 she was 26 months old. We took her for a walk at Shawnee State Park and she just loved the nature. Walking in the woods is one of our outdoor family activities since she was a baby.

In 2012 we took this picture with my iPhone in March, yes we had a very warm day that day! She just turned 3 when we took that picture.
