Cards, Mother’s Day

Easy Mother’s Day Card

Hello friends. Coming to you today with a quick and easy Mother’s Day card. If you haven’t found the perfect card for mom yet, you will want to give this one a try. Only one type of paper is required. And the addition of a stencil, ink and a die makes it super easy to create a card with texture. It can also be for any other occasion–just change out the sentiment.

Supplies

I started by cutting down a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Cardstock to 4 x 5-1/4″. Then created a pattern in the background using Catherine Pooler Designs Rose Petals and Catherine Pooler Designs Pattern of Rings Creative Screening.

I set that aside to dry and stamped the teapot in Catherine Pooler Designs Polished and Catherine Pooler Designs Green Tea with Catherine Pooler Designs Cuppa Tea Stamp Set. I stamped the teacup and plate in Catherine Pooler Designs Green Tea and Catherine Pooler Designs Icing-on-the-Cake and the little embellishment in Catherine Pooler Designs Polished. Lastly I stamped the flower for the teapot in both Catherine Pooler Designs Green Tea and Catherine Pooler Designs Rose Petals. I diecut all the images with the coordinating dies, Cuppa Tea Dies.

I added a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY Clear Stamps. I stamped the HAPPY in Catherine Pooler Designs Green Tea onto the card panel at the top left and the MOTHER’S DAY in Catherine Pooler Designs Polished on a scrap of Neenah Solar White 110lb Cardstock. I diecut that sentiment using the banner from Queen and Company Foundation Dies #2.

I glued that banner down to a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Cardstock after using the direct-to-paper method to color it with Catherine Pooler Designs Polished. I added 3M foam tape to the back of the teacup, plate and teapot and adhered it to the card.

I cut down a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Cardstock to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ to create a card base. I then cut a piece Neenah Solar White 110lb Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ and again used the direct-to-paper method to color it with Catherine Pooler Designs Green Tea. I adhered that Green Tea panel to the card base and the completed card panel with images onto that piece.

I finished off the card by adding some Tonic Nuvo drops in Carnation Pink and Tonic Nuvo Jewel Drops in Rosewater.

Spring Cards 2

3 Cards using SSS Blooming Circle and Blooming Wave Wafer Dies

Hi friends. Continuing on with some Spring inspired cards, I pulled out the Simon Says Stamp Blooming Circle Wafer Dies and Simon Says Stamp Blooming Wave Wafer Die to create 3 different cards. It was a little time-consuming to inlay all the flowers and leaves but the results are well worth it

This Easter card combines the Simon Says Stamp Some Bunny stamps and Newton’s Nook Designs Newton’s Easter Basket stamps with the Simon Says Stamp Blooming Circle Wafer Dies. I added patterned paper from both the Doodlebug 6 x 6 Double-sided Paper Pad-Easter Express (discontinued), and Queen & Co Flirty Florals 6 x 6 Mat Stack. Images were colored with Copic markers and fussycut. I inlaid the flowers after diecutting several pieces of scrap rainbow color cardstock. Finished it off by adding some Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Gloss.

Card 2 turned into a Mother’s Day Card. When I started working on these cards I had no idea what the theme would be so I didn’t pick sentiments. But after adding the daisy pattern paper (from Doodlebug 6 x 6 Double-sided Paper Pad-Easter Express (discontinued)), I decided to make into a Mother’s Day card. I used the Simon Says Stamp Blooming Wave Wafer, to create a border then inlaid the flowers after diecutting several pieces of scrap yellow and green cardstock. I used Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy Sentiments and the Lawn Cuts Happy Happy Happy to creqte this dimensional sentiment. Finished it off by adding Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ivory Seashell.

And for this 3rd card, I wanted to make it look like rings so I diecut the Simon Says Stamp Blooming Circle Wafer Dies and diecut 3 flower circles, centering one of them. Once again I ran the die through with several color cardstock in rainbow colors. I added a sentiment to the center wreath using Catherine Pooler Designs Good Stuff Inside.Finished it off by adding Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard Glitter Drops.
