FOR MOM

It’s Good Friday today and the start of a long weekend for some.  I thought that I’d show this simple and bright card that I made to celebrate Mother’s Day.  Yes, it’s early but why not?

I went with Special Celebrations and Itty Bitty Greeting for this to combine two very special sayings for Mom.

The layout from Freshly Made Sketches was perfect for this greeting too!

The Flourish Dies are sticking around and since I haven’t used them a lot lately, I decided that this particular piece would be perfect for this card.  The Big Shot is retiring with the start of the new 2019- 2020 Annual Catalogue and I’m a little bummed by that.  But… Stampin’ Up! will be working directly with a manufacturer and will be adding a replacement machine in the future.

Here’s the list of products and if you haven’t invested in the Big Shot Die-Cutting machine yet, now might be a great time to do that.

Have a great Easter weekend and try to get a little stamping in.  It’s good for the soul!

TEA AND FLOWERS

With the weather taking a turn to the cold, how about a little tea and flowers to warm up?!

This simple card is a good choice for a Mother’s day greeting (yes another one).  I used a combination of the Petal Pink combo and Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends for the flowers.  As well as the Granny Apple green combo for the leaves.  I think they all look great with the Grapefruit Grove card base!

CAS(E) this sketch posted a challenging layout for this week and this card is my take on it.

I’ve been playing along with this sketch challenge for a while now and was delighted to have been chosen as an Honorable mention for last week’s card.  See it HERE.

Here’s the list of products that I used to create this tea and flowers card.

LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE HUMMING ALONG CLING BUNDLE

Hi and welcome.  I thought that the Humming Along Cling Bundle needed a day out so welcome little hummingbird!

Matching it up with a piece of designer paper from the Painted Seasons package gave me the colour inspiration so I pulled out a few of our Stampin’ Blends and coloured merrily away!  Mother’s day is a while away but it never hurts to get a small head-start on those special cards.

Here’s the list of products that I used.

Have a fabulous Monday and Happy Stamping to you!

MANY LOVELY ROSES WISHING FOR SPRING

Me and these many lovely roses are very fervently wishing for spring!  One of the best things about having a stamping business is that you can create your own season any time you want!  All it takes is some cardstock, ink and a great stamp set like the Climbing Roses Cling Bundle.

I used the Petal Pink and Shaded Spruce combo Stampin’ Blends to colour those little beauties and cut them out with the matching thinlit die.  Don’t they look so pretty sitting on that trellis and label?  I used a combination of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots to arrange them.

This would make a great Valentine’s card but my thoughts when making it were for an anniversary or wedding!  It’s perfect for either one!

Here’s the list of products used.

THIS DRAGONFLY DUO SAYS THANKS

Hello to you – today’s card uses Dragonfly Dreams and matching Thinlits Dies.  This is a stamp set that I haven’t used in quite a while so it was long past time to bring it out!

I added a bit of Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the dragonfly wings by rubbing Versamark over them and then using the Heat Tool to help set the glitter.

This card layout come from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge

which also gave the opportunity to show off a couple more of the beautiful designs in the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series paper.  Check out my Website for all of the selections available to you now for the Share What You Love Suite.

Here’s the full list of products that I used.

Happy Mother’s Day weekend to you and take some time to do some stamping just for you!

THERE’S NOTHING LIKE A PRETTY CALENDAR

A while back I held a class to make calendar pages for this year and today’s post shows four of the pages that were created.

Sometimes it’s hard to decide what each month’s theme will be but these four months were easy!

We have a Mother’s Day theme for May, Father’s Day for June, Canada Day for July and the perfect summer scene for August!

I used Graceful Garden(143849, 143846), Truly Tailored(145735, 145732), the Colorful Seasons Bundle(145348), You’re Inspiring(145808, 145805) and Waterfront(146386) stamp sets for these pages and am so happy with the way that they all turned out.

If you are looking to add some (or all) of these sets to your collection, visit my Website to shop.  The Waterfront and Truly Tailored sets are from the Occasions Catalogue and are available until May 31, 2018.

Happy Stamping!

A DIFFERENT TAKE ON THE AUGUST PAPER PUMPKIN KIT

I have been enjoying working with the stamp set, Bold Botanicals, from the August Paper Pumpkin kit and created this beauty!

ALWAYS IN MY HEART

Do you have that special someone who is always in your heart?  Perhaps we all do and this card is the perfect one to send to let them know.

Falling Leaves - www.cynthiascreativecorner.com

This card was created completely with the “coming to you soon” Thoughtful Branches stamp set and I must say that the greetings in this set a some that you will certainly want to add to your collection.

The Paper Players posted a great sketch for this week which made it easy to put my idea together!

NOTE: I do apologize for the sporadic posts lately, our internet has been very “here and there” which makes it difficult to finish a post. Our provider, Telus, is upgrading us out here in the country so I am looking forward to a “fast and steady” internet connection very soon!

Here’s the list of products that I used to create today’s card.  Please remember that the Thoughtful Branches stamp set is not available until August 2nd!

FOR AN AMAZINGLY AMAZING MOTHER

Mother’s Day is just around the corner – have you begun creating your special card for her?

How about one like this one?

For Mother - www.cynthiascreativecorner.com

The Paper Players has a great sketch challenge this week so I played along and used some cool designs from the Stacked with Love Designer paper pack.  I like the simplicity of the flower spray as the focal point.  Crazy About You has many great greetings and I altered one just a little with scotch tape so I could stamp just “mother” on the top flag.  And, all Mother’s are amazing aren’t they!

See the product list for all the ingredients to make this card.
