May Flowers

Wow...I guess it's been a while since I posted! I've been keeping busy working around the house...both inside and out. When the the weather has been nice...working in my garden and on not so nice days painting and re-organizing indoors. That has not left me a whole lot of time for stamping, posting here or visiting my blogging friends...sorry. I did make a thank you card that I thought was pretty cute, so thought I'd take time out to share here today since it's been a while.

The color combo of Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait & Melon Mambo make this flower pot pocket card so cheerful, don't you think? I used the rock 'n roll technique on the butterfly from the Great Friend set. I also used the flower image from the Level 1 set Punch Potpourri along with the Boho Blossoms Punch for the center of each flower. Here's what the card looks like when it's pulled from the flower pot pocket.
I attached the die cut Simple Flower Embosslits with pop dots towards the top so they could slip over top of the pot. For more instructions on how to create this card see this older post I made here.

Have a wonderful day!

Happy Mother's Day

Looks like we are going to have a beautiful day for Mother's Day here in Michigan! I'm lucky to be spending the day with my Mom. She is a quilter, so I like to incorporate that into my cards for her when I can. So I used the beautiful new Paisley Petals papers cut into 1" squares to make up my background "quilt" for her Mother's Day card.

I watercolored the flower image from Blessed Mother using Classic Inks and my aquapainter. I couldn't decide which sentiment I wanted to use, so I made an easel card so I could use them both! lol To make the easel base, just cut the card stock the same width as your card front (in this case 4 1/4") by 8". Then score at 2" and again at 4". Fold and then mount your card front to the easel base. It folds up to fit into an envelope. Here's another view to see the base...

I hope you have a beautiful day celebrating Mother's Day with your family.
