Gingham Easter Lilies

I had to wait to share this until after Easter so that the people receiving them wouldn’t see them ahead of time. Even though Easter is over, you can still make these cards…just change the sentiment to whatever you need. Even though some of these products are from Sale-a-Bration and are no longer available, I know several people that have these items. If you weren’t able to get your hands on them, you can always substitute with products you already have.

Gingham Easter Lilies
I have always loved the look of vellum on cards. So reminiscent of the cards I used to receive as a child from my mother. She knew how much I loved the crinkly sound of it. These cards use the soft, pretty colors from the Gingham Gala 6” x 6” Designer Series Paper Stack (available in the Occasions catalog) as my inspiration. I glued the lilies and sentiment onto the vellum, then placed adhesive onto the back of the vellum on the spots where the lilies and sentiments are. This way, when gluing the vellum layer onto the DSP, no adhesive shows through. I hope everyone liked the colors I chose for them!

Horse Home Décor and Coordinating Card

I have a sweet daughter that loves horses. Imagine my happiness when I spied the new Let It Ride stamp set in the Occasions catalog on page 45. I knew it was perfect for her Birthday card and a home décor piece I’ve been wanting to make for her. I used a 9” x 9” Shadow Box frame I picked up at Michael’s. I love the look of the barn wood from the Holiday Catalog’s Festive Farmhouse DSP and knew it would coordinate perfectly. All of the supplies are Stampin’ Up! except for the horse die (Poppystamps). Her Birthday was yesterday, so I can safely share this with you today. Happy 19th, Hunter Danette!

Hey Hey Hey Fun Frog Card

You know how children love attention? And how they will repeat something nonstop? Well, this card is in honor of all those times. You have to read the front of it as if you were a child. “Hey. Hey. Hey. Hey. Hey.”  You get my drift. Ha Ha Ha! This card just cracks me up to no end. Now that my youngest is turning (gulp!) 19 on Monday, I can chuckle about those days gone by when all three wanted my attention…immediately. This is a quick, fun card that comes together with some stamping, coloring and a few punches. That frog in the middle is me…and all the “hey”s are my (no longer) itty bitties.
Hey Hey Hey Fun Frog Card
The inside sentiment is from the new Well Said in the Occasions catalog.  The card makes me smile, so I thought I’d state the obvious on the inside…just like one of the kids!
Hey Hey Hey Fun Frog Card Inside
I finished it off with those stinkin’ cute flies randomly stamped on the envelope flap. This stamp set is one of the products you can earn for free in the Sale-a-Bration brochure. Hey Hey Hey…You just gotta get it!

Quick and Easy Get Well Butterflies

Today’s card is super quick and easy with pretty die cutting details and wooden butterfly embellishments that I colored in Rich Razzleberry with a sponge dauber.

The Butterfly Elements are another option in the Sale-a-Bration brochure…free with a $50 purchase. You receive 84 pieces that you can leave as is, or color with ink like I did! They coordinate beautifully with the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (also a Sale-a-Bration choice) as well as the Gingham Gala suite on pages 34-35 in the Occasions Catalog. So fun!

Lasting Sympathy in Mango

As promised, here’s another color scheme with the same basic layout as yesterday’s card. This stamp set is so pretty and I’m so glad I gave in and got the suite.  Hunter said she liked the Gorgeous Grape card from yesterday more, but I feel drawn to this pretty Mango Melody flowers.
