Rose Bouquet in Jar Mothers Day

One of the mother’s day cards I made. I gave one to a friend that lost one of her sons last year. I found this sketch and it worked perfect for two cards I made this month. I used an embossing folder which was part of the technique category of the May 2019 Inspirational Card Challenge.

I used this sketch as my inspiration.

SUPPLIES:
Digital Image: Watercolor 3 mason jars @ Corner Croft
Cardstock: Bazzill (Parakeet, pansy, blue oasis)
Accents/Tools: Cricut Cuttlebug Rosa embossing folder, Martha Stewart doily lace edge punch, EK Success 1/16 pop dots, cutter bee scissors

Cactus Mothers Day

I have a standing order for cactus/southwest Mother’s Day card for one of the guys at work. So I bought some cactus dies and this is what I came up with. Used the same sketch I did for the rose card but did it a little different. That’s what I love about sketches….can make so many different types of cards from one sketch. I used an embossing folder to make the background which was the technique category of the May Card Challenge.

I used this sketch as my inspiration.

I used this color combo as my inspiration.

Flamingo Mother's Day

I have to do a flamingo card for a co-workers grandmother every year. This is her 2019 Mother’s Day card. I had to use less lighting for the photo to show the 3 embossed lines on the left. Used sketch #5 from the April Card Sketch Challenge. I made the card horizontal instead of vertical. Also for the April Inspirational Card Challenge – bonus – mother’s Day.

SUPPLIES:
Digital Image: Endless Summer from Digi Web Studio (no longer available)
Cardstock: Bazzill (Flamingo, Lagoon)
Accents/Tools: Kaiserscrapbook rhinestone (island lagoon), Stampin Up (Seaside embossing folder), scor-pal

Plaid Snowman w-stickles

My Christmas stash is gone so needed to make some Christmas cards. When I saw this FREE image I thought it would make super cute cards and I have a friend that would love it! And I think my step-MIL will like this one too! One of my regulars needed a card for a friend of his and he didn’t have anything in mind. So I thought this would work. I sent him a photo and his response was “can I have that one for my mom instead!” He said she loves Cardinals. So then I had to think of another card for his friend (see button Christmas tree). I added stickles to the snowflakes and snow mounds but the snowflake sparkle didn’t show up very well. I used this card from Taylored Expressions as my inspiration.
