Great Impressions: Mom's Kitchen

Hi, friends!  I'm back with a paper pieced card using a darling stamp from the Great Impressions online store!  This was actually my mother in law's Mother's Day card, but I couldn't share it until now!  Take a peek...

This image, H194 Mom's Kitchen, was perfect for my MIL's Mother's Day card because our last name is Kitchen...well, I guess I thought it was clever. ;)  The image portion was paper pieced, and the stockings were colored in with glitter gel pen.  I also highlighted the sentiment portion of the stamp with glitter gel pens.

Some bits of bling were added for a feminine feel.  I like the way they coordinate with my color scheme and add a finished feeling.

I'm pleased to tell you that the card was a hit!  I was relieved, because paper piecing this image was not easy, lol!  What do you think of the finished product?  I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

That's all for me today!  I'll be back next soon with another creation using stamps from the Great Impressions store.  I hope you join in our current challenge, and, if you use Great Impressions stamps, link them up in our Customer Gallery, too!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!

Very cool to pull the colors from your Kitchen image to your background paper and ribbon. Also, love the pearls, flower and
doily too:) I'm sure your MIL liked it too!
