A Special Mother's Day Card


 I had to save this card to share after Mother's Day because it was made for a very special young lady to give to her mom.  Not knowing anything and considering this card was made especially for her, I saved the share until after the big day.  Brandy bears some credit as she used her Cricut to die cut that piano which I promptly filled with pretty blooms.  I also borrowed Brandy's background stamp to make the entire card come together in a musical way!  

I'm hoping that the card is treasured, but more that the young lady and her mom enjoyed the big day!

Happy Mother's Day!

A few last minute Mother's Day cards featuring all The Greetery products!  I paired many blooms with my robins and wrens and the Market Basket dies.  This first card has pieces from the Botanticuts Tulips that I made earlier in the month.  The grey cardstock really looks like a metal basket...and I enjoy the pairing with the patterned paper.


This second card features a background made with Salvaged Patina Distress Ink spray stain and a few other spray inks.  The blooms are from the Budding Beauties Summer stamps and dies.  


This last card is also a background made with the Salvaged Patina Distress ink spray stain and some more of the Budding Beauties Summer florals.  I truly hope that your Mother's Day was filled with good times and happy memories.

Wishing My Aunt a Very Happy Mother's Day Featuring Taylored Expressions Butterfly Wishes Stamps, Stencils and Dies


I busted out my Waffle Flower Tulips stamps to use this very timely sentiment to create a card to send to my aunt on Mother's Day.  I went full cheery yellow in the theme and love how this turned out!


 Now, my only remaining uncertainty is whether the postman will deliver it in time!

Mother's Day Card Featuring Taylored Expressions Picked Posies


I had so much fun coloring these pretty picked posies stamped with Taylored Expressions Picked Posies stamps.  I stamped onto white cardstock and colored using my Inktense watercolor pencils.  The results were so vibrant... it makes me wonder why I don't use these pencils more often.  Ultimately, I fussy cut the florals out .  The backgrounds were made by white heat embossing the same florals in the corners.  The MOM sentiment was die cut using my The Greetery Alphabuds dies.  Simple and pretty.  



 I decided a quick little stamped envelop would make a pretty match.  These two cards will also go to the store for sale and brighten someone's Mother's Day celebration.
