Mother’s Day Blog Hop

 

Di's Country INKers Blog Hop Button

Welcome to this month’s blog hop!  Today we are featuring projects for Mother’s Day.  

When I think of Mother’s Day, images of sunshine and flowers generally come to mind for me.  While we sometimes get a nice sunny day, quite often its anything but nice out, and this year spring has been delayed so long that I’m not sure how many flowers we’ll have by the time Mother’s Day comes along.  If I can’t have real flowers blooming in my garden, at least I can make sure I’m crafting with them, and I certainly do that.  Florals are by far my favorite type of stamps and paper to work with.  My card today starts out with lots of elements from the Share What You Love product suite that everyone can order starting today!

How It’s Made:

I started with a Crumb Cake card base and ran a piece of Mossy Meadow through the Big Shot with the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textureed Impressions Embossing folder.  A floral panel from the Share What You Love specialty designer series paper pack was added over that along with a few strips of DSP from the same pack.  The Apron, tools and greeting are all from the Apron of Love bundle. The apron assembly was layered over a 2 1/4″ circle of Rich Razzleberry cardstock and a Pearlized Doily and accented with a bow made from the Rich Razzleberry 1/4″ velvet ribbon.

Share What You Love Early Release

Pearls are the traditional gift for a 30th Anniversary.  This year is Stampin’ Up’s 30th year in business, but we are the recipients of the pearls.  the Share What you Love suite of products is loaded with pearls and pearlized accents.  Can you see the pearl sheen on my card?  The doily is pearlized, and there are lovely Artisan Pearls as part of this suite as well.  Did you know that customers can order these products today before the catalog goes live?  There are three different bundles to choose from, and each bundle contains free product!  Head over to my online store to see the new releases!

Well, I could go on and on, but I bet you’re ready to see what Kathya has created for you.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Take some time to create this week – it’s a great mental vacation!

P.S.  The green cardstock I used on my card is Mossy Meadow.  It used to be an In-Color but will be back as part of the Neutrals collection in June!

Happy Easter Blog Hop

Di's Country INKers Blog Hop Button

Happy Easter, everyone! C’mon in and take a peep peek at our April blog hop…

Silly me forgot to snap a photo of the Easter card I sent out to my family this year, so I’ve chosen to show you another card that I did for a fellow co-worker who recently retired. She was moving out of state and taking very little with her, so a bouquet of roses simply wouldn’t have been practical as a gift.  The Petal Passion Suite came to my rescue and I made her a card with roses that would last forever! 

 

I stamped the roses from Petal Palette stamp set and colored them with Stampin’ Blends markers and die-cut them with the Petals & More Thinlits dies. The sweet little bird is from the same stamp set and also has a coordinating die to cut him out with.  With so many images in this stamp set, it wasn’t difficult to find a greeting and additional flowers to complete the front panel.  The Basic Black card base was layered with two of the lovely patterns found in the Petal Passion designer series paper pack.  A little Whisper White 1/4″ Organza ribbon and a few rhinestones were all the accents needed to complete this card.  With 15 images in the stamp set, 10 dies in the coordinating die set, and the gorgeous papers, ribbon and embossing folders, this suite is by far one of my most favorite in the Occasions catalog!

If only spring would arrive in my neck of the woods.  As I write, it is a brisk 23 degrees out which feels like 14 with the wind chill.  Yes, it’s April and we are still talking about wind chill factors!  I’m heading back to my studio to stamp some more birds and flowers and dream of spring.  I hope you’ll head over to Kathya’s blog and see what she’s stamped for you today.
