MOM

Hey y'all! Shelly, here.
Happy Friday!

Today, I'm sharing a sweet Mom card with you!


Once again I used the new Delightful Daisy Create a Card die set for my card. This time I went with making a soft blue flower...I wanted it to be nice and fresh feeling. :) I simply used the flower die with white cardstock and then did a little ink blending. In this case, I chose a light blue ink. I then used the leaf die with white cardstock and then did some ink blending with those as well. I used two different greens. Lastly, I used the 'M and O' letters (to spell mom) with white cardstock ( and did that twice) and the little ladybug die with white cardstock and a piece of patterned paper. Then I layered the 'mom' pieces together and assembled the ladybug together.


Once having all my pieces die cut and inked, I chose a patterned paper for my background on my base card. Then added my flower, which I popped up with some foam tape and then added on my leaves. After, I added 'mom' in the middle of my flower and then added the ladybug on the flower. Simple, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

Happy Mother's Day



Ardyth here with a quick and easy Mother's day card! I used the daisies from Picking Daisies in my MISTI and placed the stamp in one corner. Then I turned my panel 90 degrees and stamped it again. The stems and leaves made a real mess in the centre, but it was easy to cover it with this pierced rectangle from the Minnie Pearl Tag die set, that had been stamped with a large sentiment. The daisies create the perfect frame for the simple sentiment panel.

It's fresh and springy - perfect for Mother's Day!

He Has Risen!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Rosemary here with one final Easter card made using the Divine Cross Create-a-Card die set and the Divine Easter stamp set.  I don't know about you, but my heart is broken over the devastating fire that caused so much damage to the beautiful Notre Dame in Paris, France.   I truly hope that they are able to restore it to its former beauty!


I started my card by stamping the Weather Wood background stamp on kraft cardstock with kraft colored ink.  I then die cut the piece with the main cross die.  I then got to work on creating the Easter Lilies.  There are six petals/leaves dies and so I cut each six twice to create the two lilies.   I then inked up the end of the petal that would be in the center with Catherine Pooler ink in Grass Skirt and Lemoncello.  I then turned the petals over and sprayed them with a light misting of water so that I could shape then.  Once the petals were shaped the inked end was slightly pinched so that they could be adhered together.  I adhered two petals, let those set and then added the next one.  Once that one was set the next was added.  That process was followed until all the petals were adhered.  After the glue had set on the completed flowers I added the stamens that had also been inked with Lemoncello and Grass Skirt.  While the flowers were continuing to dry I finished the rest of the elements of the card.  A piece of white cardstock was cut to fit my card base, inked with Ranger Squeezed Lemonade distress oxide ink and then embossed with the tiny dots.  I adhered that to the card front and then adhered the cross with foam dimensionals.  The shroud was die cut from white cardstock and the crown of thorns from copper metallic cardstock.  They were adhered to the cross and then I adhered the flowers.  I made the leaves by die cutting the petals/leaves from white cardstock that I inked with Grass Skirt ink and then shaping them like I did with the flowers.  They were then adhered around the flowers along with the sentiment that had been embossed on vellum in white.  I have included a close up of the flowers.  I really love how the flowers and the card turned out.

Rainbow of Easter Eggs



Hi there, it`s Tracey back again today with a fun and colourful card for Easter!

To make my rainbow Easter Eggs I started off my blending a rainbow on to a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock using some Easter coloured Distress Oxide Inks! I used Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade, Twisted Citron and Peacock Feather. I blended the colours together on my panel making each colour about 1 1 /4" wide. Once the panel was dry I die cut three eggs from each colour using the Cracked Egg Die Set slightly over the blend line to add some interest!

Once again I used the Dancing Daisies Cover Plate die to created a set of bunny ears peaking out from behind one of the cracked eggs!

I finished my card off with the Joy sentiment from the Poinsettia Greetings stamp set. I stamped the word joy and cut it out with my Scan N Cut.

Cardinals

Hello, everyone!
I hope you're having a great day wherever you are in the world. Today, I have a really pretty card using my Cardinals Appear stamp set as well as my Cardinal Die. This set is very important to myself and my mom, so I'm glad I was able to use this!

A few months ago, Ardyth used the Mermaid Scales Cover Plate and layered them on a Christmas card. You can see that HERE. I was so inspired by that, and I love that look! Check down below for the full recipe of AJVD products.




Have a GREAT week!

Mom...Sunflower

Hey y'all! Shelly, here.
Happy Friday!

I'm swinging in to share a sweet 'Mom' card with you!

I started with the new Delightful Daisy Create a Card die set. Which I'm loving this die set! These big daisy dies are the perfect shape card and so quick and simple to do! (This is all in my personal opinion by the way. ;))


To get my base card, I simply folded my cardstock as if I were making a regular card and then used the biggest daisy with it (letting the die hang off some from my fold on the cardstock). I then used the die one more time with just a piece of white cardstock and then adhered to my card base. Next, I used the smaller daisy with white cardstock and after did some ink blending using some different yellow inks. I used the largest circle for the center of my flower and used white cardstock with it and then some ink blending as well. Simple, right?...To give the center of my flower a 'sunflower' look/feel, once done with my inking I used a black fine point gel pen to add little 'dots' to the center. Lastly, I used the leaf die with white cardstock and then used different green inks for the blending.


To finish things off, I added everything to my card base, which I added foam tape on the back of the sunflower before adhering. Then added my leaves and 'mom' in white cardstock, which I layered twice. Simple and sweet, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

Happy Easter, Chick!



Ardyth here with a sweet Easter card inspired by a card made by Betsy Veldman a couple of weeks ago.

I started by cutting a whole bunch of the smallest Daisy and Open Daisy dies to create a frame on my panel that had already been cut with the largest Stitched Dot Rectangle die. I glued them all down with liquid adhesive and trimmed off the overhanging petals.

I also cut and ink blended the chick. I nestled him in amongst the flowers, leaving a space for my sentiment from EGGstra Special.

I finished the card by adding Lemon Yellow sequins to the daisies' centres.
