Happy Mom’s Day x 2!!

I’m back again today with another Mother’s Day card! This card is based off the Retro Sketches Challenge #114.

CTMH: A Mother's Love

I started by adding a layer of B&T Duo™ from the Timberline Paper Packet to a white card base. I next added a strip of dark purple cardstock with some stitching from my handy-dandy craft sewing machine. (One of my very first purchases [10+ years ago] from CTMH  included a packet of textured cardstock, and I’m fairly certain that this dark purple is from that stash!! Yes, I am a papercrafting hoarder! I save all scraps…this just proves you may never know when you will use it!! )

I next grabbed my White Daisy Carstock and started stamping the flowers, leaves, and sentiment from the A Mother’s Love Hostess Exclusive Stamp Set. I used Petal Exclusive Ink™ {retired}, Smokey Plum Exclusive Ink™, Garden Green Exclusive Ink™ {retired}, and Olive Exclusive Ink™ to create the flowers and sentiment. If you look closely at the edge of the flower boxes you will notice a little distressing on the paper. I used an Edge Distresser to create that effect, and it help the card fit right in with the rustic theme this card displays. Adding a few Black & Grey Epoxy Bubbles and the card was complete.

CTMH: A Mother's Love

I really do hope all the mommies out there enjoy their day!! Being a mom is absolutely the most special club I have ever been a part of!

Happy Mom’s Day!!

Today is Mother’s Day. I am so incredibly thankful for my mom!! She has been there through ALL the ups & downs. Never judging. Just always listening, giving support and advice. I am so grateful for all the sacrifices she has made for all four of her children and now her grandkids too!!!

Here is the card I made her based off the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge.

CTMH: Ariana

I started with a Whisper Cardstock base, and then added a layer of B&T from the Ariana Paper Packet. The cute little tag is cut in Blush Cardstock using the Artbooking Cricut® Cartridge. To give the tag definition I used a Sponge Dauber and Blush Exclusive Ink™ around the edge of the tag .

I used a couple different stamp sets for this card. The border along the B&T Duo™ is from the Ariana Workshop On The Go™ Scrapbooking Kit stamped in Whisper Exclusive Ink™, and the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment is from the Holiday Tags Stamp Set in Outdoor Denim Exclusive Ink™. I used a Corner Rounder on the cardstock and the B&T Duo™ just to give it a softer touch. This card is just as the challenge says. Clean and simple.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommies out there!!
