Happy Mother’s Day Banner Greeting Card

By Cards

mothersdaybanner

Hi all,

I’m back with another card for mother’s day. Again I chose to use my silhouette to create the sentiment. I had a set of these gorgeous banner die-cuts that I wanted to use at the very top of the card. I adjusted my settings accordingly in silhouette studio and created my large sentiment.

To finish the card, I used a white gel pen around the edges to create a look of faux stitching.

As you can see I am still into the corals and teals. I love how this card also incorporates some soft yellows. Also, every other banner is sparkly…did you notice? This card is just so shimmery and bright in the light. I love it!

I hope you have a lovely afternoon and thanks for stopping by!

Mother’s Day Greeting Card – Lucky Few

Hi all,

I can’t believe how quickly the year is flying by. As a cardmaker I often try to grab a head start on the next holiday occasion and put out some cards that are appropriate each holiday. It seems like I just finished wrapping up valentine’s day and now we’re already onto mother’s day!

I wanted to concentrate on the corals and teals for this season’s cards and decided to use a common color scheme for the cards. This is one I created using silhouette studio. The sentiment was created using a couple fonts I recently purchased.

For added dimension the card background I used a small dot embossing pattern. Love the texture there! The balloon is a die-cut image that I had and I popped that up off the card using a foam adhesive.

I absolutely love the way this card turned out. I don’t know what it is about this color combo, but I am stuck on it like glue! So pretty!

What are your favorite spring colors? Comment below and let me know.

Have a great day and see you next time.

Doily Banner Notecards

Hi all,

It’s no secret that in the craft world everyday items become the foundation to create something new. Today, I’m taking fancy lace like papers we use to dress our desserts to create a set of notecards. Now, I didn’t actually use the paper version for a doily, but rather a set of images from a stamp set. A while back I purchased a couple of gorgeous stamp sets from My Minds Eye that included a couple of doily images that I thought would make the perfect foundation for a set of notecards. When I purchased these sets, I immediately knew how I wanted to purpose those specific stamps.

I used my favorite blank onyx ink and stamped the doily images as the foundation for the cards. Next, I layered on dimensional die-cuts of another set of doilies. Yes, doilys on top of doilys. Too busy? Absolutely not. By keeping the base black and neutral, the die-cuts are grounded to something – otherwise they’d just look like they are ‘floating’ in the middle of the page.

Next, I used a woodgrain banner stamp and grabbed a few of my favorite spring ink colors from Hero Arts. The key was to not add too much color. Keep it simple.

To finish off the cards I added some details (stripes, borders, and a few extra woodgrain lines) using a black gel pen.

I love that these cards are so simple but have multiple layered images to create a beautiful visual impact.

Today’s card features some quick digital cuts made on my silhouette sd cutting machine. This type of card is a prime example of a card that takes more time to conceptualize then actually create. Once the cuts were made, it all came together so quickly!

Here’s how I made it:

Supplies:

Cardstock: Neenah Desert Storm Environmental Cardstock and Bazzil frost white

Snowflake: American Crafts 6×6 holiday stack

Misc: Tag, banner and brown pen
