BEST DRESSED MOTHER’S DAY CARD!

You don’t need to do a lot to create a card for Mum for Mother’s Day. The gorgeous Best Dressed Designer Series Paper does it all.

After adhering some of this pretty print on to the card I diecut 2 frames from white card using the Stitched Rectangles Dies and the Layering Squares Dies together. To interlock them I cut one and then could slip the frame through the other one.

The flowers are stamped with Memento Ink and coloured with the StampinBlends. The sentiment is stamped on Purple Posy card and cut with the sentiment die in the All Dressed Up Dies.

Paper makes cardmaking so easy. You can’t go wrong with this gorgeous paper either. I hope you grab some of this paper before it goes. It’s available in my store now.

Happy Creating,

Jenny

TEA TOGETHER HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

I shared this card on my Facebook page the other day along with some other co-ordinating projects.  These were the projects we made at our Mother’s Day class this weekend.  I thought that I would show you a closer photo of the card.  You can’t beat Gingham.  It’s quite popular at the moment.  This was a popular card too.

This card is using the Tea Together stamp set with the Tea Time Dies.

For this card we used the sweet sentiment from the stamp set but there was the option for the Mother’s Day sentiment too.

A frame was cut on the Gingham Gala paper with the Rectangle Stitched Dies. The Balmy Blue stamped card was also cut with one of the other smaller Rectangle Stitched Dies.  The teapot and cup and saucer were stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  We just did the edge with the light Smoky Slate.  You can’t tell but the flowers had Wink of Stella washed over them so they were quite sparkly.

For the class each person could choose the colours they wanted to from the Gingham Gala paper.  The Highland Heather looked gorgeous as was the Grapefruit Grove.  I should have taken photos of them.

Hope you like them.  Happy Mother’s Day to you wherever you are whether you are a Mum to humans or to animal babies.  Have a lovely day.  Hugs to you if you are missing your Mum or struggle with not being a “mum”.  It can be a hard day.  xx

Thanks for visiting.  See you again soon.

SHARE WHAT YOU LOVE MOTHER’S DAY CARD!

You might have seen this project in the past week.  This was made for my Mother’s Day class this weekend.  It was a bit hard to see the card so I thought I would show you a little closer view.  Plus it is an opportunity to just take a minute to wish all the Mummies a Happy Mother’s Day.  Whether you are a mummy to humans or to furry creatures or an “adopted” mummy to young ones.  I wish you a wonderful day.  Be sure to take some time to put your feet up, maybe indulge in a little creativity just for yourself.  However you spend it, Have a great day. xx

Onto the card.

It’s quite a simple card but I think the paper is the star.  This is the gorgeous Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.  It is so shiny although you may not be able to see it.  I love the colours.  Ooh! Mint Macaron is back!!!  The white card is stamped with some of the small images from the Love What You Do stamp set.  The sentiment is from the You’re Inspiring set.  You could easily substitute a Happy Birthday which is what I did in one of the cards I made in classes this weekend.

The sentiment piece and the Silver Foil backing is cut from the Layering Oval Framelits and I added some loops of Silver Thread.  It makes such a nice “extra” to a card.  The paper doily is from the current Lace Paper Doilies. 

The Share What You Love is available as bundles as an early release now.  I mentioned that a couple of posts back so just pop back one or 2 posts.  All these will be available individually in the upcoming 2018 Catalogue on June 1st. 

I will be off but thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day xx

CARDS FOR MOTHER’S DAY!

I hope you have had a lovely Mother’s Day for those celebrating.  It’s a great day to spoil those Mum’s who do so much and many of those jobs go unnoticed.  I thought I would share my cards I made for Mother’s Day.

This one was for my Mum.  You would have seen the ‘Card in a Box’ type cards around.  They are everywhere in the blogosphere at the moment.  I had a class last Friday showing how to make the ‘Card in a Box’.  During the class I made this one up.  My Mum loves blue so thought she would love this.

I have used the ‘Watercolor Wonder’ DSP on the box.  I used the colours in the paper when I stamped the flowers.  This was in Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and Island Indigo.  I used the ‘Flower Shop’ and ‘Petite Petals’ stamp sets for the flowers and threw in some butterflies from ‘Papillion Potpourri’.  The leaves were punched with the 2 step Bird Punch from Gumball Green.  The label was stamped from Chalk Talk and cut with the matching framelits – no cutting with scissors!!!!  I just finished it off with the large adhesive pearls.

EDITED:  The link to make your own long ‘Card in a Box’ is here at Diane’s blog.

This next card was for my Mother-in-Law.  She loves pinks and reds.  This is a lot simpler.  It had to be quick 🙂

I thought I would ink up ‘Oh Hello’ set.  There won’t be many more opportunities for it as it is on the retirement list.  This card was CASED from one on Pinterest.  I just changed it a little bit and it is different colours.  I thought I would drag out some retiring colours too using Raspberry Ripple and Primrose Petals and teamed them with Crumb Cake.  I used the markers on the flower and then cut it out using the Chalk Talk Framelits.  It is finished off with some Satin Stitched Ribbon and the greeting is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Enjoy the rest of your day/evening.
