Jar of Flowers for Mother’s Day

It’s pretty obvious who this card was given to today. My mother is a wonderful woman that is always there for me. I love her tremendously! She bought me the Jar of Love bundle for Christmas last year, so I thought it would be fun to use it for her. Yellow, green and blue are her favorite colors and I threw a splash of pink in there for good measure. It was a little time consuming with all the die cutting, but she is totally worth it!

Baby Bear for Autum Kaye

We went to visit my newest little niece yesterday – Autum Kaye. Just 10 days old! What a sweet baby!  Here’s the congratulations card I made the new parents. I am so pleased with it – Baby Bear is simply darling and perfect to welcome a new little life. I have my friend Stephanie to thank for the idea of making a square card. I hadn’t made one in quite a while, but she recently made a baby card that was square…inspiration! And a big thank you to Stampin’ Up for making the bow in the Holly Berry Builder punch match the Baby Bear bow.

Easter Blessings

I recently held a card making class for some super fun ladies at my church. We made two cards – one Easter and one Birthday. Today I’ll be sharing the Easter card. I can’t believe it’s almost upon us! I will admit that I struggled with this card. I knew I wanted to use the floral cross from the set Blessed by God and the Easter sentiment inside from the current Occasions Catalog called Suite Sentiments. My dear Hunter came to my rescue for everything else – she picked out the color combo, layout, embossing folder and embellishment!

Flourishing Sympathies

I unfortunately needed to make a few sympathy cards. I decided to make all 3 with the same layout. All the stunning dies are from the Flourish Thinlits collection.  They are beautifully detailed and the Big Shot Die Brush works wonders with removing all the little cut out pieces. The Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder creates a nice, subtle background that doesn’t detract from the flowers and sentiment.  I mixed up the color schemes on each one. Which do you like the most?
