Jar of Love for Mother’s Day

Can you believe it’s May already?!  And – it’s the first of the month which means its time for another Di’s Country INKers blog hop.  Perhaps you’ve arrived from seeing Mary’s beautiful project – what did you think? 

This month we are featuring projects for Mother’s Day.  My card is a ‘case’ (Copy and Share Everything) from Dawn Olchefske.  What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than with a lovely flower arrangement and the Jar of Love bundle fit the bill.

I started with a Pear Pizzazz card base, layered with Whisper White.  My large flowers are stamped in Daffodil Delight and accented with Crushed Curry centers.  The smaller flowers were stamped off once with Rose Red, then accented with full strength Rose Red.  Leaves and ferns were stamped with Pear Pizzazz, and the jar was done in Smokey Slate.  A little bit of die-cutting with the matching Everyday Jars Framelits set and I was ready to assemble with glue dots and dimensionals.  Easy peasy! We’re going to be making this little lovely in my upcoming Mother’s Day card class (hint-hint)

I was thrilled to see that the Jar of Love set and coordinating framelits were not on the retiring list, so that means they will still be available in the upcoming Annual Catalog!  However, they will no longer be offered as a bundle with a 10% discount as they are right now.  You have until May 31st to take advantage of the savings. Oh!  And I almost forgot to mention that the Tags and Labels Die set IS on the retiring list.  It’s a very handy set, and I’ll be sad to see it go…

Off you go now to see what Kathya has to delight you with.   A list of all the stops on our hop is below, just in case you get lost. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Hope you have a great rest of your week!

Mother’s Day Blog Hop

2015 May Blog Hop Button-ResizedWelcome to another edition of Di’s Country INKers blog hop!  Hope you enjoyed Diana’s project – she always has something fun…

beelinestamping.com 5-1-15The card I chose to show you today was inspired by one that Kay Kalthoff from Stamping to Share did as a swap for last year’s Convention.  I’ve had it tucked away for quite some time in my ‘inspiration’ file and recently ran across it again.  Loved it then and love it still!  The only thing I needed to change was the sentiment and voila! I had an absolutely adorable Mother’s Day card…

This one begins with a tent fold card base of Whisper White to which I added a 3/4″ strip of Back to Black Designer Series Paper on either side.  a 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ layer of Whisper White was punched with the 2 1/2″ circle punch and stamped with a greeting from the Mother’s Love stamp set which can be found in the Occasions Mini catalog.  I used the Lovely Lace Embossing Folder to complete the layer.  The center flower is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink with a stamp from the Flower Patch set.  The die-cut flower was done with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and a die from the Flower Fair framelits.  It was finished off with a black Candy Dot.  Super quick, super easy, and super cute!

Ok, off you go to see what Kathya has in store for you.  Thank you so much for hopping along with us.  I, myself am off to browse the soon-to-be-released 2015-2016 Annual Catalog!  One of the best perks of being a demonstrator is getting an advance look at what’s in store for us for the coming year and getting my hands on brand-new product weeks ahead of the official release date!  Would you like to take a peek?  Join my team and starting May 5th, you can load your starter kit with pre-order items! Tempting, eh?  Give me a call and let’s talk about it…
