Mother’s Day…..again!!!

Standard

Hello once again!!  Here is another Mother’s Day card I made…..this one was snatched up pretty quickly at work when I took it there to show the girls…..it never made it past the first girl!!  I REALLY love this die cut from Memory Box called Sefafina Heart …. just check it out!!

 

 

Isn’t it just so delicate and lovely?!!!  I added some bling to it just for those special mother’s.  My card base is some DP I’ve had in my stash for so long and I have no idea where or when I picked it up.  I think it makes for a very nice contrast for a background. 

 

 

 

My Mother’s Day sentiment is from my Close To My Heart sentiment set called “A Little Everything” which you’ve seen me use before.  That love lacey border is the Martha Stewart Elegant Lace punch. 

 

 

 

So, there it is…..very pink…..very feminine.  I actually did another one but went with a brown and orange sort of combo…..that one was grabbed right away too and I had intended to add bling to it too…..didn’t get a chance!!  lol.  Here’s what that one looked like……same layout (only reversed), just different color combo and I used my Stampin’ Up! Scallop Trim Border punch:

 

Now, what card to post next??  Are you getting tired of your emails filling up yet if you’re a subscriber…..lol.

Mother’s Day….

Standard

Good day my amazing blog friends!!  I thought I’d better post a couple of Mother’s Day cards too so the amazing Mother’s don’t think I’ve left them out!!  This is a card we did at my last Stampin’ Up! demo night and I absolutely LOVE it and the layout.  It’ll be a very versatile layout for my collection as it would also make a wonderful wedding card.  First of all, just check out this amazing flower stamp!!

I just love this set from Stampin’ Up! and it’s called Mixed Bunch.  One of the best things about this set is it comes with a matching punch so you get the wonderful little cut out scallop edges to the flowers. We punch the flower out around the stamped image and then again on a piece of the Concord Crush cardstock, rounded up the edges of the flowers, layered them and attached it with some pop dots.  The Elegant Lines embossing folder is also one of my favorites from Stampin’ Up!  And check out the Ruffled Ribbon!!  I just love the look of that ribbon!!  The colors we used for this card were Concord Crush and Wysteria Wonder (which is starting to become one of my favorite SU colors!!)

Check out this adorable sentiment for the inside of the card!!!  I love it!!!  It’s from the ‘Well Scripted’ stamp set and is just sooo perfect for the Mother’s Day card.

 

 

 

 

 

So, here it is in full size.  I really like the look of the elements of this card and think it would look sooo stunning as a wedding card.  Switch up the colors to a beautiful tone on tone or a white and cream mixture.  Yup….a definite layout keeper….lol.

Thank you my friend for checking out this little gem…..how about one more Mother’s Day card I made using one of my new Memory Box dies…..

Hello world!!!

Standard

Hello  my long lost blogging family!!!  Wow….what the heck happened over that last few days??   I think I’ll have to go on a mission and find the person that has stole my life…..I want it back right now!!!  Okay, done ranting…..lol.  Sooooo, I was able to get together with a wonderful co-worker on Sunday and we created such cute butterfly easel cards!!  We decided to make them Mother’s Day themed.  Wait till you see this little cutie…..

Look at that cute little flower hat pin!  I had these little silver flower beads, so I took some of them and stained them with my alcohol ink in a green tone.  I put a couple of coats on…..very subtle but very nice.  We had a hard time finding just the right flower to match so I finally just took a couple of my flower punches and we just made them out of the same Designer Paper as the card was made from.  I took my Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and sponged over the flower to give it some depth.  We then ‘painted’ on some Close To My Heart Glitz glitter gel in Bronze to the edges of the petals.  We inked the edges of the butterfly wings with the Vintage Photo as well and then painted on the Glitz bronze glitter gel to the edges.  The green lace bow came from a haul I’d come across at our local second hand store where someone had brought in a whole pile of this old stretch lace seam binding….cha ching!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a picture of the outside and the inside of the card.  I received the template for this card from a super talented friend, Lauren, from over in Aussie land.  If you have some time, you really need to go on over and check out her blog….Laurenscraft.

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s a pic of the completed card opened…..

 

There she is…..all ready to give to some wonderful, incredible Mother!!! 

Thanks for stepping into my world to take a peek…..I do really appreciate it!
