Mojo Monday - Fifth Avenue Floral

Happy Saturday! The card that I have for today is a Mother's Day card for the Mojo Monday Sketch using some of the fun new Stampin' Up goodies I had delivered the other day! I'm sorry I haven't been posting much this week I've been spending extra time outside with my two year old when the weather has been nice, it feels great to be outside and he's been having a ball. This card looks so much better in real life because this picture doesn't show how glittery the one popped up flower is with the lighting I had. I'm loving this Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set and matching designer paper already!
I hope my mom likes this card I made for her and I hope all of you that are mothers enjoy your day tomorrow.

Supplies: Fifth Avenue Floral, Wonderful Favorites, Urban Oasis DSP, Ribbon, Eyelet border punch, Large & small oval punch, Scallop oval punch, Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing, Aqua brush, Pop dots, Dazzling Diamonds, Clear beads. Colors: Basic Grey, Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss.

Thanks for stopping by!

Nature Silhouettes

Today's card is a birthday card for my oldest brother Jeff who's birthday is today, I can't believe he's 47 today. I just received this Nature Silhouettes stamp set about a week or two ago and this is the first time using it, I think its a great set to have for masculine cards.
I started out by stamping the tree in Always Artichoke and the deer in Close to Cocoa on Kraft paper, then cut and embossed it using my square Nesties die. Then stamped the deer again in CC on Very Vanilla paper and punched out the head portion of the deer with Key Tag punch and taped it onto the main image. The Close to Cocoa panel behind the main image was stamped with the Sanded back ground and ribbon and three brads were added to finish off the card.

Supplies: Nature Silhouettes, Sanded BG, Sincere Salutations, Key Tag punch, Ribbon, Brads. Colors: Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Kraft, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla.

Mother's Day Set

Can you believe its Monday already? This last weekend flew by, Saturday I spent the day running errands and trying to get things done and yesterday DH and I took the kids to the zoo. It was a beautiful sunny day in the 70's and most of the animals were out and about because of the nice weather so it was fun. The projects I have for today are ones I made up for Mother's Day but could be used for any time I suppose.

The card was made using my largest circle scallop Nestabilities die, I was inspired by a card I saw in the SCS gallery by craftycaro I thought her circular rose card was beautiful. For mine I stamped the rose twice and took one image and cut and embossed with a circle nestie and the other I cut out the first row of petals and pop dotted on top of the other image. For added dimension I popped the Old Olive mat on top of the Riding Hood Red card base and on the inside I stamped Happy Mother's Day.

The matching Top Note purse was created using the directions from Becky Roberts and after making a few of these as gifts their even easier to make than the first time.
Supplies: Bella Blossoms, Bella Rose DSP, Nesties, Top Note Sizzix die, Circle punches, Scallop circle punch, Ribbon, Eyelets, Velcro, Pop dots, Tacky Tape. Colors: Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, Whisper White.
Have a great day!
