Mother's Day...It's Right Around The Corner!

Hello Everyone! I hope you all had a joyous Easter.

For us cardmakers, Mother's Day is fast on our heels and we've got to get inspired. After the Explosion Box Card I made Mom for her birthday, I've really got my work cut out for me. How am I going to top that? You'll see the answer to that question in a week or so;) But to get us started, here are some Mother's Day cards I made...

This was a card project that was part of a Mother's Day Brunch at church. All the pieces were precut and all you needed was a little glue and it was finished. I used the CTMH Veranda paper pack. It's hard to see in the picture, but there is a matching butterfly design stippled on the front of the card. I cut a butterfly out of vinyl and stuck it to the paper and using a stipple brush and an ink pad, I inked all around (and on top of) the vinyl mask. When I had enough ink, I just gently pulled the vinyl up. You can reuse the vinyl cutout several times and can store it for later projects by re-applying it to its backing sheet.

The Butterfly diecut is from Quickutz. The "with love" is an embossing folder from Cuttlebug and the paper has been sanded. There is a magnet closure under this tab. The magnets are from Basic Grey. The border punch was Stampin' Up. The "To Mom" tag I printed on my computer. The font is "Fling" and can be downloaded free at

These two Mom card I made for a friend at church. Believe it or not, the paper I used was really old stuff. It's either MAMBI or BoBunny that I bought several years ago when a local scrapbook store was closing. I bought A LOT of this paper. It's really pretty and works great for a shabby chic card. I used MTC/Make The Cut and my Expression. The shapes are from Penny Duncan Creations and they are FREE! {You can go to her site and download the shapes in multiple formats. Just click on her blog badge on the righthand side.} The smaller shape in the center is one of the artisan shapes from the Silhouette store. For the card on the left, I used crocheted lace and grosgrain ribbon at the top. On the right, I used a Martha Stewart punch and organza ribbon. Both cards were embellished with pearls and small prima roses.

This is my attempt at making an easel card. It only looks hard:) I made for a lady to give her daughter for Mother's Day. The daughter has three children. The "3" theme is repeated with pearls and the butterflies on the card. I used the CTMH Miracle paper pack. I embellished with stitching, pearls, and a Recollections flower from Michaels. (Can you say Clearance?)

FYI, the class activity list for CKC Nashville is now available. Just go to and click the events tag. After you choose CKC, you will see Nashville in the list on the right. Registration begins May 4th!

Thanks for stopping by! Until next time, Scrap Sassy!
