Packed for Mom

Packed for Mom is a single large stamp from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  It can be purchased by itself for $9.95 or as a bundle with Packed for Baby, Packed for Birthday, and Packed for Dad for $29.95 for a 25% savings.  Just think of all the possibilities. 

My card base is Very Vanilla cardstock, which was stamped at the bottom with a stamp from the Fresh Vintage Stamp Set (sneak peak from the Sale-a-bration catalog), and then  layered with a strip of Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper, and a strip of Pink Pirouette cardstock that was punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  I then embossed these layer with the Finial Press embossing folder.  I stamped the large image in Soft Suede ink, and then layered this onto layers of Pink Pirouette and Soft Suede.  I stamped a second image on another piece of Very Vanilla, and then used markers to color in a few of the images, cut them out, and then placed them on top of the first stamped image with dimensonals. 

What is also nice about these packed for stamps is you have so many images to choose from that you have so many options when making your cards or projects.  You can cut or punch out any of the images to place them by themselves, or add them to another stamped image.
