More Mother's Day

This was my mom's Mother's Day card, I really wanted to try out all my new dies. The flower is one of the dies that embosses & cuts and I just love the leaf die! The whole card came together very quickly because I already had the flower/leaf layout in my head. I've also been having a lot of fun with my eyelet punch lately :)

College Card

This was my first attempt at a College card. I'm sure there's a more technical description, but basically a college card is stamping as many background layers as you can with one focal image on top. I think I managed to use 6 different stamp sets and four types of embelishments for this one card . I think it turned out really cool.

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.
