Mother’s Day is coming next month! 🙂 I finally made some cards that I’ve been seeing everywhere! I love these cards and I think they’re great for Mother’s Day:) So I’m going to get right to it. I made all these cards myself:) I’m going to enter one into the challenge over at Send A Smile 4 Kids, take a look:)
This is what the paper looked like before I cut it up. It’s a sheet from Stampin’ Up! called Painted Blooms. The other side is beautiful too! 🙂
I did the top row first. I used Soft Sky for the words and background. I felt the words came out too light. One the second card, I also used Soft Sky for the background, but Blushing Bride for the sentiment background. I used Rose Red for the rest of the sentiments because I liked the way it looked;) The third card, I used Crushed Curry, even though that wasn’t one of the colors listed for the paper package. I thought it went better with the flower centers.
On this row, I used Blackberry Bliss, Soft Sky and Rose Red for the backgrounds. The center one has a little butterfly cut from the reverse side. The card on the right has Dazzling Delights added to the purple flowers. I couldn’t find any SU sentiments that I liked so I used a Mother’s Day stamp from Recollections, the Michaels brand.
There’s no shipping charges on any Stampin’ Up! order this week until Friday, April 10th! 🙂 Let me know if you would like to order anything:)
Here are some Birthday cards I made:)
For this one, I used some paper out of a stack by Prima, called Firefly, I think it’s retired, but still beautiful:) This is one of the more plain papers, my granddaughter picked it out:) I cut it with a Memory Box die, Grand Happy Birthday. I added a little bow in Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Delight. The bird I got from Dozens Of Paper Cuts on Etsy. I ordered two sets and I requested Stampin’ Up! Brights and Subtles. Sue does a great job! 🙂
Another bird from Dozens Of Paper Cuts. I used the same Memory Box Die as above. I stamped the birthday hat from a SU set that I just can’t remember right now:( I cut out the hat part and then cut a small circle with a Stampin’ Up! hand punch, I think the 1/16th. The paper is Night of Navy, and the DSP is from the current Occasions catalog, it’s called Birthday Bash Specialty because it has some embossed gold foil. I printed mine with My Digital Studio. I’m going to use the “real” paper next time to get the gold embossing:)
Again I used Designer Series Paper, Birthday Bash Specialty, and Night of Navy. I used the same Memory Box Die. The little dragon is from Lawn Fawn, called Critters Ever After. It has a matching die set. The balloons I cut out of SU cardstock, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, and I think Old Olive, but I could be wrong about the green. I colored the dragon with my Stampabilities markers. I drew the balloon strings with my SU white pen. I did use My Digital Studio to print my Birthday Bash paper, so it doesn’t have any gold in it:( I like it, but I will use my paper package next time:)
I forgot to post some of my own Easter cards so I will add those here. I made them for SAS4Kids, I was thinking teenager cards;)
For these I used a new stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog called, For Peeps’ Sake. The SU DSP is retired, Kaleidoscope. I got it when it was in the Clearance Rack! 🙂 I used SU Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay as my background cardstock.
