Tsunami Rose Challenge 18 - Mother's Day Challenge

Well, I am reliably informed that it is Mother's Day in the USA on May 8th and as I'm part of the Design Team for Tsunami Rose Designs, based in Las Vegas, this week's DT project is for Mother's Day!

This month we are working with printable ephemera from Tsunami Rose which you can buy as a file and print as required, these are available here.

When Daisy sent me the file for this week's challenge... I was totally inspired and went a bit crazy and made TWO projects for this week!

My first card was a vintage inspired card using the central image and wording from Tsunami Rose. I used some background papers from the Shabby Vintage Goodybag over at Craftwork Cards and some ribbon and 3mm string beads.

The large flower here is made using the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die from Sizzix Alterations, and the spiral cut roses are using the Chinese Rose by Marianne Creatables. The paper used for both was from a 6x6" paper pad called Floral Fantasy by Louise Tiler - a recent free gift from Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine.

I used Worn Lipstick and Vintage Photo Distress Ink Pads also from Tim Holtz to distress/colour the flowers and the central image where i've also added someRanger Glossy Accents to the lady and the flowers. Opal White Liquid Pearls finish the edges of the card.

This next card is a far more modern take and very much my style - purple is my colour and i love this card!
I have used a chipboard dress form from Craftwork Cards along with purple card Candi. The B&W damask paper is from Victoria Park 6x6 paper pack by LilyBee Design.

The tag and wording are both printable ephemera from Tsunami Rose and i've added black organza ribbon and purple mulberry flowers to finish the card.... along with star dust stickles and Dusty Concord distress ink!

I hope you enjoy these designs, why not join us at the Tsunami Rose Blog for this week's challenge - there's no need to use TRD products but we love to see what you do with them!

  1. Great cards Maureen! I think Its 12 May not 8th.

    1. Ah, that makes more sense - the 12th being a Sunday! thanks D! Mo xxx

  2. Beautiful cards, you'll be all set for next year now!
    The weather shifted so much today didn't it. Yesterday tee shirts and shades out, today back to hat and scarf. ;-)
    Mum got on fine at the clinic. Cast off, lovely big scar up her arm, now wearing a metal splint for 4 weeks, she can have a shower now too as its removable. Thanks for asking.

    1. The sun's trying to come out here again, but too little too late - been out in the rain and not going again till Zumba tonight!

      Glad she got the cast off! Hopefully the splint wont be as restrictive!
