Another Stippled Blossoms Mother’s Day Card

I loved the Crisp Cantaloupe/Calypso Coral colours used in yesterday’s card…and I’m loving it in Pool Party and Bermuda Bay too!

Stippled Blossoms 003 - Front

Stippled Blossoms 003 - Front Top

Stippled Blossoms 003 - Inside

It may be possible that I love this combination even more than yesterday’s card!

And yep…I needed another box to match 🙂

Stippled Blossoms Mother’s Day Card

Oops!  2 months since I last posted…where does the time go?  We are only days away from the end of the 2014-2015 Stampin’ Up! catalogue, so I’d better share some projects while they are still current!

I followed Kirsteen’s tutorial to make the card I’m sharing today.

Stippled Blossoms 002 - Front

I love how this turned out!  My class ladies loved making it too 🙂

Stippled Blossoms 002 - Flat

Stippled Blossoms 002 - Front Top

Stippled Blossoms 002 - Front Open

Stippled Blossoms 002 - Open

I’m so sad to be saying goodbye to Crisp Cantaloupe…Calypso Coral just wont be the same without it.  I won’t be parting with Stippled Blossoms any time soon either 🙂

We also made a box using the Gift Box Punch Board to go with our card.

Gift Box Punch Board 001 - Front

Love how sturdy this box is!

The Something Borrowed embellishment finishes the bow perfectly!

The Mum sentiment comes from the retired stamp set For My Family

Lovely As A Tree

Today’s card is a case of one I have had saved for a long time.  As soon as I saw Loll’s gorgeous Lovely Sunset card, I fell in love with it!

Lovely As A Tree 002

Love it!  Loll’s focal image really pops, and I am really pleased with how mine turned out.  Lovely As a Tree is one of the least used sets in my collection, but it is a beautiful set, and is fantastic for masculine cards.

The Dad sentiment comes from the For My Family stamp set which retired a few years ago.

I didn’t take photos of the inside.  It’s blank, and I used the space to write a Father’s Day message for my Dad 🙂

Thanks for stopping by.

Use one or all of these scoring tools to add interest to a Gatefold Card:

Simply Scored Tool

Simply Scored Borders Plate

Simply Scored Diagonal Plate

I’ve used the Simply Scored tool and the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate on my Gatefold card.

Stippled Blossoms 001 - Front

It doesn’t show up well in the photos, but I have used the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate on the Whisper White cardstock to create a diamond background.

Stippled Blossoms 001

I love how this turned out, and I know my ladies will love making it in class.

Stippled Blossoms 001 - Inside

I’ve kept the inside very simple, letting those gorgeous Stippled Blossoms speak for themselves.

Mosaic Madness Revisited

I was tidying some drawers in my craft room yesterday and came across some left over card kits from when I made this Mosaic Madness card with my class ladies in July last year.  Needless to say my drawers are still a bit of a mess, but I had fun changing this card up a little bit for Mother’s Day!

Mosaic Madness 003 - Front

I pulled out the retired For My Family stamp set for the beautiful Mum sentiment.

Mosaic Madness 001 - Inside

I printed the sentiment on the inside using MDS and die cut it to match the front of my card.

Love how this turned out!  I’m thinking it might even be worth tidying my drawers more often…..
