A Cute Mother’s Day Flower Vase

Happy Mother's Day Frame

This card was initially created for the Can You Case It sketch challenge from yesterday, but as I worked on it, it morphed into this and I couldn’t be happier with it.  As a matter of fact, I loved making the frame so much with the Chalk Lines photopolymer stamp set that I made several frames with different colors, sizes, and shapes.

MAGGIE MADE TIPS: Not in cash, but great crafting recommendations.

  • Experiment with your product.  You just never know what you’ll come up with.  This card started off as a sketch challenge card and it quickly morphed into a Mother’s Day Vase card. I experimented with several stamp sets and stamped over 15 times until the lightbulb came on. I began cutting paper to make the perfect 45 degree angles on the frame, but it turned out I could stamp a frame just as good, but easier with two strips of sticky notes. HA! Who would’ve thought to do that…it was just too easy.
  • Single vase.  To single out the vase with the tulip I used Tempting Turquiose, Real Red, and Old Olive to color in just that one vase. I huffed on it to moisten the ink with my peppermint breath and stamped it…that easy.  *Peppermint not required, but your stamp will love it.
  • Show Me How Video.  I’m working on the video now to show you how simple it was to show you how I made the frame. So come on by tomorrow to see how you too can make the photo-frame too.

New Catalog Coming:  Anyone who has ordered from me in the last year will automatically receive the fun packed new catalog. I’ve already seen it and my list already has 75 stamp sets on it.  This year I’ll have to pace myself (LOL).

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas You Can Make with CYCI #67

Mother's Day 1CCThis week’s Can You Case It Challenge is for Mother’s Day gifts and I have three to share with you today. I have to admit that I miss our Blendabilities so much, but until another set of alcohol based markers are found…I’ll stick close to my Stampin’ Write Markers. My friend Nicole gave me a really cute card that she (a newbie in card-making) made using our markers. I thought, “Hey, if she can do it, so can I!” If you missed that post, you can see it here.

Mother's Day 2CCThis card is for my mom’s who are koo koo for CoCo Chanel. I would love to have a Chanel purse, but when I think of spending that kind of cash on a purse…my mind converts it into Stampin’ Up! product. I think I’d rather buy product and make Chanel inspired crafts. LOL.

Mother's Day 3CC

The purse is so very easy to make and I initially saw it on a post made by one of my Pals. If you want to make one yourself, it is the easiest purse I’ve ever made. Please try it, I know you’re going to love making them for Mother’s Day.

You’re going to be so addicted to making these too cute for words purses, watch!

This is my second post today and I hope that you continue to scroll down to view my first post. It’s strange, but the card below this one is how I feel right at this moment.

Mother's Day Spanish

First, let me Thank You for you support. This blog isn’t possible without you my readers. A few days ago I was invited to participate in One Stamp At a Time’s monthly blog hop where we were to create Mother’s Day projects. You may have been directed here from Diane at Stamp and Embellish. Now on to the fun with some awesome Mother’s Day cards & project.

I’m not usually a flower person, but my mom and mom-in-law are and since I earned the Bouquet Bigz L Die I just had to try it out for the first time. You wouldn’t believe how easy it is to make these gorgeous flowers, the pictures don’t give them any justice.

Mother's Day Spanish

My mom-in-law lives two states across from me, so I’ll be mailing her the card, but I’ll be near my mom and I’ll be putting some cash in the Chevron Bag. I’m not worried about either of them getting a peek at their gifts because they don’t follow my blog and they don’t have computers.

Thank you so much for joining us on the OSAT Blog Hop and please continue on with the one and only fantabulous (fantastic & fabulous) Wynne at My Craft Side.
