Happy Mother’s Day

** 3/24/17 Top 5 at QKR Stampede! **

Hi everyone! Happy St. Patty’s Day! Hope you are wearing green so you don’t get pinched, lol! Today is my post day on the Dare 2B Artzy blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project featuring two gorgeous papers from the In Bloom Collection Paper Pack, Flowers for Mom stamp set and Totally Black ink.

I used a curved scallop edge die to cut the front flap a little shorter, then added a piece of Blooms paper layered on black cardstock. For the bottom portion under the flap I used a piece of Fields in Bloom paper layered on black cardstock, along with the striped strip from the top of the Blooms paper and a couple very narrow strips of black cardstock.


When planning my design, I made sure there was a green flower in the center to coordinate with the card base. Then I cut a green flower out of another section of leftover Blooms paper, adhered it to plain white cardstock, and trimmed it leaving a small margin of white around the outside of the flower which I colored with a Memento Tuxedo Black marker.


I adhered some loops of natural bamboo hemp cord to the under side of the extra flower and then affixed it with 3-D foam pads to the green flower in the center of the card flap. I added flat-back pearls in various colors to the flowers and the strip across the bottom.


I stamped the Mother’s Day sentiment in Totally Black ink on a white panel butted up to the Fields in Bloom paper.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
