I’ve used the newest ACN image Flower and Butterflies and designed a Printable Mother’s Day CAS card and Any Occasion Tags. Join in our MAY CHALLENGE to make your own Mother’s Day/Women’s Card HERE.
My favorite flowers are ORCHIDS. In any color. I think they have an elegant and seductive quality about them, don’t you? I was in the mood for something pretty today and colored my Orchids in shades of pink lilac. I wish you all a beautiful day! Deena
It’s a Mother’s Day challenge theme at Crafty Creations this week. We hope you’ll come and join us! San’s Designs is our sponsor and I’ve used her Strawberry Cake image on this digi hybrid card I made. The image is colored with copics and I’ve added my favourite crinkled seam binding for bows in the corners of the banner and across the bottom of the card. The background papers are from a digital kit by Jady Day Studio at the Sweet Shoppe. Have a look at what the rest of the DT made using San’s great images HERE. Thanks for stopping by! Deena
I had fun pleating the accent flower for this Mother’s Day card. It reminded me of when we used to make these at school for something to do at lunch hour. Peggy (the Nutty Cardmaker) and I were shopping at the local SBS when we saw these trendy little things for sale. I just couldn’t bring myself to buy them though, knowing that I could (fairly) easily make them! lol I did find it to be a little tedious because to get a nice tight pleat it has to be folded accordion style with the folds only 3mm apart. The paper is cut to 3/4″ wide and is 8 inches long, folded as I’ve said at every 1/8 of an inch (3mm) . I do love the finished look, though I just can’t see myself making a bunch of these. I guess my lunch hours are not quite as dull anymore! 😉 Have any of you tried making these recently? What do you think? Thanks for stopping by, and have a creative day! Deena
It’s time for this week’s Crafty Creations Challenge and we are to make Mother’s Day cards! Getting organized ahead of time is always a good thing isn’t it? Our sponsor this week is The Stamping Boutique! I am using one of their lovely images for my card today, and I’ve colored it with Copics. I used a base of gray cardstock and light yellow textured cardstock. The sentiment is French for “Happy Mother’s day”. I am making a few French sentiment cards for sale in my my Etsy shop. Thanks for stopping by! Have a creative day! Deena
I had fun with the color challenge on SCS! The colors were lilac, coral and green, yes, challenging, but I kind of like it! I used my Cricut to cut the flower layers and the sentiment from the Home Decor cartridge. The papers are from Crate; the Samantha and Blue Hill collection. I had not used them in some time and I was happy to find them and pull them out. I used a Martha Stewart lattice punch for the border. Lots of flowers for this challenge: Creative Card Crew – April showers bring May flowers Have a great day and have fun crafting! Deena
