Another Mother's Day card

Well, Mother's Day has come and gone, but I didn't share this card with you yet and since I have been unable to find a lot of time in the stamp room lately I decided today was the day!

The designer series paper is from the upcoming catalog and is called Delightful Daisy, the ribbon is also new and is called Daffodil Delight double stitched ribbon.

I added a few flowers around the sentiment using the Blooms and Wishes stamp set and the sentiment is from the Crazy about You set.

Here for You

I had some extra pieces leftover from the graduation banners I shared with you earlier this week and thought I would make some cards with them using the Urban Underground specialty paper.

I chose a couple different patterns of the designer series paper and used a sentiment from Sending Thoughts.  The top circle is popped up with dimensionals and I added some Urban Underground embellishments to finish it off.

Prom 2017

Since it is my oldest son, Hunter's, birthday today I thought I would share the scrapbook page I made for his first prom. 

I chose to start off with a Real Red card stock base and then added some designer series paper from the Neutrals color collection.  The letters are cut using the Large Letters framelits and I have added some enamel shapes and some 3/8" metallic ribbon for texture and accent. 

The matted photo is popped up over the designer series paper.

More Graduation!

I think banners are about the hardest thing for me to photograph!  Especially if they are kind of large like these are...A customer asked me to make some banners for a family member's graduation this spring and gave me some ideas for colors and materials. 

These are the ones I came up with, each banner has the same background burlap, but the designs are a little different.

On the one below, I had to free hand the card stock layer that went over the burlap because I didn't have a die that would work to cut them out.

I added layers and textures to each banner piece as well as accessories and lots of different ribbon tied between all of the pieces.

I chose to use the Decorative Dots and Large Polka Dots embossing folders, the Top note die, circles framelits, Stitched Shapes framelits and some retired alphabet dies.

Lots of buttons, pearls, doilies, etc...

I attached the card stock to the burlap with Velcro because I knew it would be strong and that way the banner pieces could maybe be recycled as well.

This photo shows the textures a little better...

I always have fun putting together projects for customers like this or even things totally different!

Happy Graduation

I am back at least temporarily!  We have been planting potatoes so my seed cutting job has kept me away from blogging and creating lately and I missed the whole week last week.  Hopefully I can be back for good, but we will see...

I have a couple different styles of the same card to share with you today.  We have quite a few graduation celebrations to attend this year so I thought I should get some cards made!  I chose to use the Eastern Medallion thinlits as the focus and added some Eastern Palace Specialty paper on the first one...

The sentiment is from Celebrate today and I added a designer button to the center of the medallion as well.

The second card uses the banner stamp in the Celebrate Today stamp set as well as the sentiment.  I also added some metallic enamel shapes to add a little color and texture.

The purple on this card is the new In Color called Fresh Fig...

I've Got This

I was in the mood to use the daisy stamp in the Helping Me Grow stamp set the other day and decided to pair it with the Sending Thoughts stamp set and some pretty designer series paper.

I chose to use the Falling in Love designer series paper for the background and the Succulent Garden designer series paper for the sentiment that is also punched out with the decorative label punch.

I added a little linen thread behind the sentiment for some texture as well.

Tranquil Tulips

I am able to share some sneak peek products with you today!  For my Mother's Day cards I decided to use the new hostess stamp set called Tranquil Tulips.  There is some two step stamping on the tulip petals.

For the first card, I chose some Color Theory designer series paper for the background layered onto Pool Party card stock and added my sentiment on a new punch called Pretty Label.  The accents are called glitter enamel dots and I already love those! 

On the second card, I used the same stamp set and glitter enamel dots but different colors for some of the tulips.  Then I cut a doily in two and added the halves behind the Very Vanilla layer that is popped up with dimensionals. 

You also see a couple of the new In Colors on these cards - Berry Burst (this is the card base color as well as the darkest pink ink) and Powder pink (the mat for the tulips on the first card and the lighter ink on the tulips on the second card).

Crazy about you, Tranquil Tulips (hostess)
