Cherry and Lilac Floral Mother’s Day Card

This is a Mother’s Day card that I made for my Mom. The “Happy Mother’s Day” sentiment is embossed inside.

I am trying to get settled back into a routine since returning from vacation – I have conquered all of my chores, but I am struggling with my creativity. And I can’t seem to get enough sleep! (I think that is more allergy related than jet lag? Maybe just a combination of both.)

Supplies:  Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, Gina K. Designs, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop Tone Sour Apple, inks – Gina K. Designs Amalgam, Cherry Red, Jelly Bean Green, Wild Lilac, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.


Pink Hearts Dandelion Mother’s Day Note Card

I colored the dandelion stamp with markers (and then I had to extend – not so precisely – each stem to extend past the sentiment banner).

Here is a close up of the Swarovski jewels: ( I do love the Aurora Borealis variety!!)

Supplies:  Stamps – Clearly Besotted, Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop Tone Razzle Berry, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, inks – Stampin’ Up! Old Olive, Pink Passion (retired), VersaMark, die – Lawn Fawn, jewels – Swarovski Aurora Borealis, embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl.

Floral with Buttons Encouragement Card

This card is related to a previously mentioned conversation with Cousin Pati. The two larger buttons were purchased as crafting accessories. The smallest button came from a blouse I owned back in my Software Engineer/Mathematician days.

The stems were all cut with the same die, and I embossed them with an embossing folder. Then, I trimmed them by hand to make them unique.

This cannot be sent through the mail in a regular envelope.

Supplies:  Stamp – Simon Says Stamp, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, PopTone Razzle Berry, Stampin’ Up! Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Pink Pirouette (retired), Soft Sky (retired), Wild Wasabi (retired), ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Papertrey Ink (stems), Provo Craft (flowers), buttons – Stampin’ Up!, dark pink – source unknown, embossing folder – Provo Craft, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.
