Mother's Day

As spring FINALLY stretches out her hand... (occasionally) it's time for that thoughtful day... Mother's Day! Time for me to get busy! Here's the cards I've been working on.

I love the colours of this first one! Celery & Guava. This card was a lot of cutting! After stamping and cutting out the frame, I cut the mat free hand. I think this one's going to be for my grandma.


Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla - paper; Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Blush Blossom, Groovy Guava - ink; Bella Toile, Botanical Blooms (SAB), Frames with a Florish, All Holiday - stamp sets; cream half pearls (Pretties Kit), Certainly Celery marker, Stampin' Dimensionals - accessories;

This card was fun because I love office themed items and tags are so much fun. You can hardly tell in the photo, but there's a reinforcement on the circle punched in the tag. I think that's my favorite item on the whole card :)
I ripped the edges of my Pink Pirouette & then moistened them. After it was adhered, I rolled up the edges all the way around. The flowers on the tag were paper pieced, which means I stamped the image in green onto the tag & then stamped it again in Rose Red on Pink Pirouette paper. Next I cut out just the flower parts & glued them over the original stamped image.


Old Olive, Rose Red, Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla - paper; Rose Red, Certainly Celery, Old Olive - ink; Friends 24-7, All Holiday - stamp sets; piercing template, pink embroidery floss, Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware, Crop-a-Dile, 1/2" circle punch, Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, blender pen - accessories;
