Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - Mother's Day Cards

Hi, Crafty-Happy People!
Mother's Day is just around the corner, and I'm joining other demonstrators from all around the globe in a blog hop celebrating our Mothers. Unfortunately, my mother passed away many years ago, and that's the situation for many of my customers, so I always try to design my cards for other occasions, such as birthdays.

I CASE'd the idea for this card from another demonstrator, Angela Meyer. When I saw this card and the beautiful color combinations, I knew I had to make my version of it.
I started with a card base of Soft Seafoam, 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", folded in half. Using a piece of Basic White, 4" x 5 1/4", I cut out the fern die from Forever Flourishing dies so the Soft Seafoam would show through. I then embossed it with the Subtle embossing folder and adhered it to my card base.

I also cut the other large fern from this die set from Soft Seafoam cardstock, brushed VersaMark across the tips, and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. This piece was adhered on top of the cut out fern.
I stamped 2 different foliage stamps from Forever Fern on Soft Seafoam with Rich Razzleberry ink, and cut with the coordinating die. After adhering the gold hoop with mini glue dots, I arranged the foliage and butterfly in the bottom left-hand corner. The butterflies were stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

On the inside, I added a little interest with one of the dies from the Curvy Dies.

I hope you like my Mother's Day card, and if you live close to Quincy, Florida, USA, you can make this card at one of my next card classes starting April 22nd. Now hop on over to the next demonstrator on the list below and check out all the fabulous projects!

Tranquil Dies for Kylie's International Blog Highlight Vote For Me!

Hi, Crafty Happy People!
I've made this gorgeous Tranquil Dies Thank You card for Kylie's International Blog Highlights. This means I'm asking you to vote for me so I can participate in her Top 10 Blog Hop! CLICK HERE TO VOTE! Look for entry #10. 

Now some details about this card. Thanking someone for a gesture you're thankful for will be easy with a card this colorful. 

I used our wonderful Blending Brushes to create this eye-catching background. On a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Basic White, starting in the bottom left corner, I blended Daffodil Delight first. Next, I added Mango Melody, Melon Mambo, then Gorgeous Grape. I then rounded the upper right and lower left corners with the Detailed Trio Punch.

The Mossy Meadow corner piece was cut from Mossy Meadow and I added some extra leaves cut from Old Olive. The butterflies were heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder on Daffodil Delight cardstock and punched with the Butterfly Duet punch.

The flowers were punched with the Small Bloom punch from Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, and Mango Melody cardstock. These flower centers were punched with a retired punch, but the Confetti Flowers Border punch would also work.

The card base is Gorgeous Grape 11" x 4 1/4" folded in half. I rounded the upper right and bottom left corners of the card base.

I hope you like my card and I appreciate you taking a minute to vote for it. Vote here!

Flowering Vines for Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights Winners Hop

Hi, Everyone!
First, I want to say I'm so excited to be participating in the Top Ten International Highlights Winners Blog Hop March, 2021, hosted by Kylie Bertucci! I earned this honor with my card, Welcoming Window, placing in the top 10 of Kylie's March 2021 International Highlights (actually, first place thanks to your votes). Thank you to everyone who voted for my card!

The theme for our cards is thank you, and I can never thank my team members and customers enough!!! Where would I be without them.

I chose the gorgeous die set Flowering Vines, as the focal point for this card. This beautiful designer series paper is from the Love You Always set, the Sahara Sand piece. I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece and cut the Flowering Vines rectangle die out of the center. I adhered the piece that the Flowering Vine was cut from on the card front of my 11" x 4 1/4" Misty Moonlight card base. 

The next piece is also Misty Moonlight and it measures 3 1/4" x 4 1/2 ". I cut it with the 3rd from largest Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it with dimensionals, and then the beautiful die cut piece on it.
The Vase Builder punch was used to punch my vases out of scraps from the Boho Indigo Kit. The metallic stems coming out of the vases were cut out of the Love You Always Foil Sahara Sand piece, using the die from the Forever Flourishing Die set. The middle vase metallic piece is from the Sunflower die set. A Misty Moonlight/White twine bow finishes off the vases.
I love this saying from the Ornate Thanks stamp set because it is so versatile. On this card, I "just wanted to say" thanks for everything.
I hope you like my card and will come back to visit my blog. Please take a minute to visit the blogs of the other winners listed below.
