Mother's Day Blog Hop





Welcome to the "Mother's Day" Blog Hop!  

We're so happy you could join us today to honor Mothers, Daughters, Aunts or any other woman who has been a great influence in our lives!  

In addition to seeing a lot of awesome projects, there is some blog candy
available too.  I will be giving away a Michael’s gift card.  To be
eligible for the blog candy, you are required to visit each stop in the
hop and leave a comment!  The winner will be announced Wednesday, May 15th on Miranda's blog! 



I first cut out the card base from a svg file from http://www.creativepointe.com with Mom cut out in approximately the center.  Than using Versamark and a Stampin! Up stamp, Fifth Avenue Floral (believe it's retired stamp set) I placed the watermark image right below Mom and embossed with white embossing powder.  Use a ribbon and two flowers for embellishing the card.  For backing of the Mom cut out I placed a  off-white piece of cardstock and placed behind the opening.


 

The next two (2) cards using the card base from BirdsCards names Rose Edge Card whiich is a stenciled edge of Roses.  The card can be used with the rose edge to the side or as I done, along the bottom. 

I cut out the Mom Charm and the back shadow and placed over a ribbon above the cutouts of the stenciled roses.  The blue card I placed small flowers at each ends of the charm and added punched butterflies for embellishments.

I hand trimmed the backing for the blue card, and than for the green card, I joined the pieces to come up with a 'welded' look and cut out with my machine.  And than trimmed it off at the perforated line.  Easy-peasy....


Next on the hop is  Ashley - http://marinewifesscrappinlife.blogspot.com
