Hello! Today I have two adorable Mother’s Day cards featuring the Fable Friends stamp set, which will be carrying over to the 2019-2020 annual catalog. These cards were created by Beverly Tingom from Scottsdale, AZ. Bev was one of my first customers and although she moved away from Lancaster, PA several years ago, she remains a good customer and friend. Bev made these Z-fold cards for two of her step-daughters-in-law.
This card is for a step-daughter-in-law that has three children. In addition to the Fable Friends stamp set she also used the trees from the Beach Happy stamp set in the Occasions catalog. This set will be retiring on June 3rd. She colored the images with a variety of Stampin’ Write Markers and Stampin’ Blends. The mother duck and ducklings were all fussy-cut.
This card is for a step-daughter-in-law that has 10 children. The greeting was cut with one of the dies from the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies set. The butterfly punch and DSP are retired products.
I am sure that both of these women will love receiving these cards! Thanks, Bev for allowing me to share your work with my readers. Wishing all the mothers out there a very Happy Mother’s Day!
Today I’m featuring the Needlepoint Nook product suite from the Occasions catalog. The stamps include lovely floral images and a wonderful variety of greetings and type fonts. When you look close up at the Designer Series Papers the floral images are actual embroidered pieces that have been photographed and turned into these papers. The reverse sides of the papers feature different embroidery stitches. As someone who loves to embroider I really appreciate the work that went into creating them!
Here is a card I made for Mother’s Day using the Needle & Thread stamp set, Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies and Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper.
Here are the steps to make the card:
Card base – Berry Burst card stock cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and fold in half
Cut piece of Designer Series Paper at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and attach to card base
Cut piece of Blushing Bride card stock at 3″ x 4″ and using the large floral die run through the Big Shot to emboss the stitched floral image
Stamp the largest flower with Berry Burst ink and stamp two of the smaller flowers, one with Balmy Blue and one with Highland Heather ink. Stamp the large leaf image with Old Olive ink. Die cut all images by running through the Big Shot
Use the Well Said bundle from the Occasions catalog to die cut the word “happy” from Balmy Blue card stock and stamp the Mother’s Day words on small piece of Whisper White card stock with Balmy Blue ink. To adhere the word you can either attach a small piece of a multipurpose adhesive sheet to the Balmy Blue card stock before running through the Big Shot or you can use multipurpose liquid glue or the fine-tip glue pen to adhere. Trim Mother’s Day words and attach underneath the “happy” die cut.
Arrange die cut floral images and adhere to card using multipurpose liquid glue.
Attach piece of Whisper White card stock cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″ to inside of card and if desired, stamp image of large flower with Berry Burst ink at bottom of card.
Here is another card using the product suite. It was one of the make and take projects we made at Stampin’ Up’s OnStage event last November. The greeting, “sending you happiness and love” is a perfect sentiment for a Mother’s Day card.
All of the products in this suite will be retiring on June 3rd so if you would like to purchase any of them do not wait because availability is while supplies last! Visit my online store to purchase these products.
