Monogram set - The Cutting Cafe'

This is a set of five cards I put together for my wonderful Mom-In-Law for Mother's Day. And I honestly could not believe how quickly and easily they went together! I simply used the AWESOME and AMAZING monogram set of dowloadable stamps from The Cutting Cafe'!!

I simply grabbed the the K I wanted from the many possibilities of monograms in the set, and pasted it into word. Resized to exactly what I wanted, and the printed them out on my cardstock. EASY PEASY!! I cut them out with my Nesties in my Cuttlebug, and mounted them on foam tape for dimension.


The DP is by Cloud 9 Design, Kensington Gardens collection. The cardstock is Bazzill. The brown border on the Blooming Daisies paper is actually just the reverse side of the Blooming Daisies paper, so I knew it would be a perfect match to the brown in the paer! I just ran it through my Martha Stewart border punch.


I added a little color to the stamp by using a couple Copic markers. I used Redwood on the K, and Cream around the dotted circle. That's it! This entire set was done in a little over an hour. What do you think? I sure hope she likes it!! Of course she will. She's one of those Mom-In-Laws that would love it if you scribbled some crayon marks on a piece of paper. She is indeed amazing!!
That's it for today! Be sure and pop over to Regina's site, The Cutting Cafe', to check out all the amazing sets of downloadable stamps she has, and you too can put together a set like this in no time at all! She's got all kinds of wonderful sets to help you whip up something for the mother figure in your life. Hope you're having a woderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and I hope to see you back again soon! HUGS!
