Roses for Mom / Recognizing Everyday Heroes / New Card Kit – A Million Thanks

Roses for Mom

To all of the moms, grandmothers, stepmoms, stand-in moms and moms-to-be, I’d like to wish you the happiest Mother’s Day! Where would we be without Mom’s in our lives to care for us, heal our hurts, and just make the world a better place to live? Cheers to all of the wonderful moms!

What mom wouldn’t appreciate roses on Mother’s Day? Today’s project features the Hues of Happiness Suite of products to make this lovely Mother’s Day card.

This book fold card starts off with a Fresh Freesia card base. I used the “B” side of one of the Hues of Happiness designer series papers and Mother of Pearl specialty paper. A die cut trellis and die cut roses in shades of Fresh Freesia, Night of Navy and Gorgeous Grape, along with a Fresh Freesia ribbon adorn the card front. The inside of the card and the envelope front also feature the large rose image. If you haven’t yet ordered the Hues of Happiness Suite Collection you’ll want these products in your crafting stash…gorgeous!

recognizing everyday heroes

Everyday Heroes invites you to celebrate, honor, and appreciate the special actions people make to show you they care.

The Everyday Heroes campaign focuses on the people who make small differences that touch our lives. These are the people who hold open a door, pay it forward in a fast-food line, or simply smile and say hello. We honor and celebrate the everyday heroes who go out of their way to show how much they care about others. This campaign is a way to appreciate the little acts of kindness that make a world of difference. Join Stampin’ Up! in celebrating, honoring, and recognizing the work of everyday heroes in your life. 

Stampin’ Up! has lots of ways to help you show the people in your life how much they mean to you. Whether you are celebrating a special occasion, marking an anniversary, or just letting someone know that you appreciate all they do, we have stamps, dies, and embellishments to help. There’s something for every level of crafter to show the most important people in your life just how special they are.

Happiness Abounds Mother’s Day Card / Last Chance & Retiring Products Sale on Now…Last Week!

Happiness Abounds Mother’s Day Card

The beautiful roses on this card, as well as the background DSP come from the Hues of Happiness 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. The dies from the Happiness Abounds Bundle include dies that will cut out the rose and leaf images on the DSP! How cool is that?

I chose Starry Sky, Coastal Cabana, Pool Party and white as the colors for today’s card. The “B” side of the DSP from the Hues of Happiness papers are equally beautiful, and I used one of the “B” sides of the paper on my card front. I also used the largest dies from the Blossoming Happiness Dies to cut out a floral pattern on the white panel on the card front, allowing the DSP to show through. It’s subtle, but I think it adds a lot to the look of this card.

The Hues of Happiness Suite Collection (Happiness Abounds stamp set, Blossoming Happiness dies, Hues of Happiness DSP and the Glossy Dots Assortment) are available for customer orders beginning on May 3, 2020! That’s only a week away…yay!

Daffodil Daydream Mother’s Day Card

Happy Friday! Are your daffodils up yet? My daffodils stems are up but no blooms yet…it shouldn’t be long now. Daffodils in bloom mean spring is finally here and I can’t wait for warmer days ahead! On to today’s project.

This Mother’s Day card is made with the Daffodil Daydream stamp set. The daffodil image was stamped in VersaMark ink and gold embossing powder was applied then heat set. I used a blender pen and ink to color in the daffodil blooms and stems and the image was cut out using the largest rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly die set. The card was set against a Mossy Meadow card base with a strip of the Daffodil Afternoon designer series paper sitting behind the die cut panel. A double linen bow, sentiment and Bumblebee Trinket complete the card.
