OSAT Mother’s Day Blog Hop

OSAT HeaderHello my peeps and a very happy Thursday to you! Today I’m participating in the second blog hop with a bunch of my friends from one of the Facebook groups that I belong to. It’s called One Stamp at a Time Cards and More. The focus this month is on Mother’s Day! Soon it will be that time of year to show our wonderful Mother’s, Grandmother’s Aunt’s and whoever else in your life that has been like a Mother to you how much we love them! This time I’m all about the gold! It’s everywhere in design and decorating lately and who couldn’t use a little shine?! If you have arrived here from Martie Hillyer’s blog, welcome! Didn’t she have some fun projects?! I have three cards for you today!

The first card is an eclectic collection of elements but I like when you can make them work together on a card! My card base is Whisper White Card Stock. I stamped the Hardwood Background Stamp in Crumb Cake on Crumb Cake for my background. The frame is a piece of Blushing Bride that I cut out using two of the Lawn Fawn Large and Small Stitched Rectangles. I found an old Recollections stamp that I heat embossed on Vellum with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder for the ledger paper. For the five hearts along the bottom I used a die from the Circle Card Thinlits and some Gold Glimmer Paper. My “string” is a piece of Very Vanilla That is cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Slopes and Hills Dies. The little pocket is cut out from Vellum using the Simon Says Stamp Tiny Coin Envelope Die. I heat embossed the greeting on it from the Lovely Amazing You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. A piece of Very Vanilla with the corners rounded and a hole punched in it so I could thread some Hemptique Natural Hemp Cord though the top. The heart is from the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set and is stamped in Rose Red. The grid and tiny envelope are adhered to the card with SNAIL and the hearts with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A scattering of Hazel & Rub The Makery Think Pink Sequins and Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins complete the card! I really do love the eclectic feel to the card and the little envelope with the tag is so neat!

My second card uses some new dies that I got from Ellen Hutson. The base is Whisper White Card Stock. I cut out the background using the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangles from a piece of Whisper White. I used the Essential by Ellen Bold Blossoms Stand Alone Dies to cut out the leaves and flowers from Brushed Silver Metallic and Brushed Gold Metallic Card Stock. The love is cut out using the Essentials by Ellen You Rock Die from Gold Foil Sheet. My leaves, small flowers and love are adhered with Multi-Purpose Glue and the large flower with pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals. The panel is adhered to the card with a piece of fun foam to lift it up. A scattering of Simon Says Stamp Sparkle and Shine Sequins give it a little glimmer. I love the simplicity of the card and I think that it would also work well for a wedding!

My last card is a tall and skinny one! The base is Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Pistachio Pudding. I used another piece of Whisper White to heat emboss the greeting from the Painted Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Down the left side is a piece of Pinkfresh Studio Peach and Mint Ombre Airmail Washi Tape. The panel is adhered to the card with a piece of fun foam in between. My large butterfly is cut out from Crisp Cantaloupe using the Butterflies Thinlits. The two smaller butterflies are from the Nature’s Perfection Stamp Set and are heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum. My butterflies are all adhered to the card with some Kool Tak Clear Foam Tape. A few Pretty Pink Posh Lime Sorbet and Tangerine Sequins with a few gold ones are randomly adhered to the background. To give the large butterfly some extra sparkle I brushed it with my Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter Pen. I really like that washi tape and the Wink of Stella looks so cool in person!
