More blue, more framing

Another blue entry for the Addicted to Stamps challenge.

Very similar to this card I posted last week, for the Moxie Fab love challenge. This one has been made 100% specially for my mum with her favourite colours and favourite images. She's really unwell and I can't stand not being close to her (she lives about 90 miles away). I go to see her as often as I can, but when it's not possible, the best I can do is let her know I'm always thinking of her.

Inky background created with all kinds of different blue inks and sponges. The stars are one corner stamp, and I used a stamp positioner to turn it into a frame. I quite like how it gives an uneven shape.

Here's another picture, to show the shiny shine! Love silver embossing - and so does my Mum!

And here's a pic of the inside.It's not stuck down in this pic, as I wrote a soppy message in silver pen before sticking it down, but didn't feel I needed to share that with you all ;)

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Wow this is just spectacular! Love the blues and the use of that stamp is brilliant. I'm sure your mother loves getting your cards when you can't visit. It is so difficult being far away especially when they are ill. I know mother was across the ocean. Went home as often as I could but that wasn't easy. Wish your mother a speedy recovery.

  2. This is GORGEOUS! So fabulous--the blue looks amazing with the silver embossing! :) I hope your mom gets well soon. I also hope you come and join me at Technique Tuesday!!! :)

  3. This frame style card is fabulous M and I love how it makes the sentiment really important. It is horrible being far from those we love - especially when they are ill - but your mum will really appreciate the love that went into making this. Vicky x

  4. Beautiful embossing - can't resist it and yours is wonderful. I know what it's like to be too far away. . . . take comfort from the fact that your Mum will know you are thinking of her when she receives your card made with much love. Have a great weekend.

  5. Love this. Great colour and the silver really pops. Hope your Mum feels better soon.

  11. Hi M

    I hope that your Mum is starting to feel a little better now.

    It must be awful for you to be so far away from her but I bet she loved her card!

    The colour and the silver embossing are both beautiful.

    Love Jules xx

  12. Gorgeous silver flowery frame M and that blue is so rich like a gorgeous Mediterranean sea! Thanks for playing along this week at ATS and I hope your Mum feels better soon:)

  13. This rich blue is absolutely gorgeous. I feel like I could fall into it. It looks stunning with the embossing. I am sure your mum will love it and I really hope she feels better soon. Thanks so much for joining us again at Addicted to Stamps :)

  14. Aww, that's really sweet of you :) I'm 120 miles away from my mum and she's not well at the money either so I know how you feel :(

    I really love this! The colour is so bold and paired with the silver embossing is just beautiful! I'm definitely going to have to CASE this, hope you don't mind!? I will refer people back to the original, amazing designer though, don't panic ;)

    I hope your mum is feeling better :)
