Hummingbird - 4

I have a standing order for hummingbirds for Mother’s Day. I broke down and bought “Humming Along” by Stampin’ Up. So glad I did. Since I’m not a stamper or good at coloring I decided to stamp on paper that was done like watercolor! Then I used the dies to cut it out. I used the abstract image that comes in the die as the background. It took me a little bit to figure out how to do it since the gold was thin and when it went through the xyron it would be hard to put it on without it ripping. Finally glued the gold on some plain cardstock and then cut it.

Even though the sketch showed ink I did a die cut….which is more my style!

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

Flamingo Mothers Day

I realized I did not post any of my Mother’s Day cards for 2018. This was the grandmother’s 2018 Mother’s Day Card. I cut an extra flower spray and pop dotted it on top of the flamingo for dimension.

SUPPLIES:

Digital Image: Aloha Floral @ https://www.etsy.com/shop/YenzArtHaut

Cardstock: Bazzill (Berry Sensation, White), American Crafts (butterscotch)

Accents/Tools: 1/16 EK Success pop dots, Martha Stewart Edge punch
