Mother's Day Cards

Mother's Day Cards
I have been blessed with many wonderful women in my life to celebrate for Mother's Day. I enjoyed making these cards for them and choosing the stamp sets, dies, and colors that I know will please them and matches their interests.  

For the first card, I wanted a card from the dogs to their mom/grand-mom. I used Stampin' Up's Happy Tails and Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper with the Happy Mother's Day sentiment from Strong and Beautiful. The gingham and white panels were die cut using Stitched Rectangles dies. Fun and sweet card! 

The second card is for a special someone who loves tea. I saw this stamp set and matching dies come out back in the winter and knew this would be my Mother's Day card for her! I used Tea Together stamp set and Tea Time coordinating dies which came out as a coordinating product during Sale-A-Bration, but which will be carried over to the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. The doily on the card is from the Doily Builder dies…

For this next card, I got to play with the fun Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and Duet Punch from the 2019 Occasions Catalog and the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and Grapefruit Grove Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack, both free items from the 2019 Sale-A-Bration Catalog! 


One of the things I've been working on is pulling the different labels that come in all the different die sets …
