Carousel Card & Treat Bag!

Good morning!

 

Today I am sharing the card and treat bag I made for my mom! She loves carousels so as soon as I saw the Carousel Birthday set in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog, I had to get it. I stamped several horses and then colored them in with the blendabilities that SU carried a few years ago.  Then I used my Scan N Cut to cut them out, they cut out so nicely.

 

 

First I made the treat bag using the coordinating Cupcakes & Carousels designer series paper. I added one of the horses on a doily, then added the for you which is a coordinating die cut from the treat bag set.

 

 

Here is a close up of the card which uses more of the dsp – isn’t the carousel horse paper so pretty? I love it.  I added another horse on a doily and added the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

 

Have a great day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I’ve been using happy a lot in my post titles! Lots of happy days around here to celebrate!

 

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! My mom is off today so I am taking her out to breakfast and then who knows what kind of trouble we will get into (usually shopping lol).

 

Today I am sharing the card I made for my mother-in-law.  I’ll share my mom’s tomorrow!

 

 

We bought my mother-in-law a hanging planter full of succulents and when I was thinking of what to make for her card, this set from Stampin’ Up! came to mind. It’s called Oh So Succulent and full of lots of fun succulent images! Lining them up on my mini Misti made stamping them a breeze! I love the coordinating dies and paper too. I can’t wait to play with this set more.

 

Have a great day!

Mother’s Day Card

Hello!

 

I made this card and gift card holder on Friday night and totally forgot about posting them.

My mom had to work on Mother’s Day so we celebrated this past Saturday with breakfast and a day of shopping.

 

The little pocket was made using the Mini Treat Bag thinlits die from Stampin Up using Authentique Delightful papers. I added a few elements from MFT Blueprints 1 which I also used on the card.

I found this Stamping Bella image when I was cleaning in my room. It was stamped years and years ago, not sure what her name is anymore. I colored her with my Lyra Polycolor pencils since it wasn’t Copic friendly paper.

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Mother’s Day Cards

Hello and Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms out there!

 

I had a great weekend with my Mom, she had the weekend off for the first time in months. Yesterday we spent the day shopping and today we went to breakfast, saw my sister & her family and then one of my stepsisters and her family. We had beautiful weather to enjoy a BBQ, didn’t think that would ever happen after our looooooong winter LOL!

 

This is the card I made my Mom and it’s for the Viva La Verve Week #2 sketch (sketch shown below with supply list).  I was inspired by one of the DT members cards to ink up Button Best for the first time 🙂

 

2015 Card 37 - Mothers Day Mom Verve Button Best-001

 

 

I used some older MME Tangerine papers that were in a card kit that’s been collecting dust for years lol.  The flowers were stamped, colored with copics and then fussy cut.  The leaves are also from Verve, Sprightly Sprigs die set.

 

Next up I have my mother-in-law’s card and I used the FTL11 – Take Two sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping. I used Winnie & Walter’s The Big, The Bold and The Happy to build the sentiment.  The papers and embellishments are all from an old card kit.
