Happy Mother’s Day Featuring Rosie

I’m back with another Mother’s Day card!  Since I have 3 Mom’s, I thought I’d share the 2nd Mother’s Day Card with you too.  I am in LOVE with Rosie here.  She’s from Purple Onion Designs and she just makes my heart smile.  Isn’t she adorable??  I wish I could create characters like Stacey Yakula can.  She draws THE cutest images I’ve ever laid eyes on.  Anyway, let’s get on with it.

The theme this week at Always Fun Challenges is Dry Embossing.  I actually created 3 additional cards using embossing folders, before I decided I needed to up the ante a bit.  I can’t believe how easy it was to make 3 cards in a matter of 5 minutes!!  And I can’t believe that I hadn’t done it sooner!!  But I wasn’t totally happy with my AFC contribution so I kept at it.

These are the 3 that I created in record time.  They were just so easy to make!!


All I did was use an embossing folder, trim it down to 4″x5.25″, add a matching background and die cut a sentiment.  Threw some Nuvo drops on one and a little twine on another and Voila!  See what I mean?  Easy peasy!  This is good for filling up your card stash with last minute must haves.  If you must have a card, you must have a stash.  Every time I try and build up my card stash, I do another craft fair and then I’m back to bare bones.  I see all these lovely ladies with boxes of pre-made cards and I’m envious.

Anyway, so after I made these super quick, super easy embossed cards, I turned my attention to Rosie here.


I used E0000, E00, E11 and E40 for the tan parts and W00, W0, W2, W4 and W6 for the shaded areas.  I colored her cheeks and inside her ears with R30.  The flower is E04 and G21 and YG63 for the stem.  I used W0 for her cute little fluffy tail.

To finish off my card, I used my clear Wink of Stella on the hearts and that black part of the flower and then covered the hearts with Glossy Accents.  That’s it.  I hope you like what I did with Rosie here.  I also made a process video which you’ll see below and as always, I’ve listed all the products I used below too.

Don’t forget to head over to Always Fun Challenges and add your lovely creations!!  These challenges are open to anyone who wants to join in the fun.  Even if you can’t participate this week, you can always head over to check out all the lovely talent.  Between the lovely ladies that make up our design team and all of your entries, it’s overflowing with beautiful talent!!

I’ll see you next week!!  OH! And Happy Mother’s Day!!!!

  1. Your embossed cards are beautiful Misty! I do love a plainer card when it is embossed. I also love the embossing folders you used on your first few cards! But the one that steals the show is Rosie, she is completely adorable!!! I love the way you colored her in too. Your mother’s day card turned out so cute. Hope you had a wonderful Mother’s day Misty!! Hugs, Brenda

    1. Hi Brenda!! I’m so sorry I’m just now responding to this. I ended up pretty sick right around this time and ended up in the dang hospital!! Anyway, thank you so much for your sweet comment. The embossed ones were super easy and would do in a pinch, but Rosie is by far my fav too. That Stacey is amazingly talented!!!
