Mother's Day Card Class

These were the cards and projects that we made in my Mother's Day card class. They were once again all cased from fellow demos.

The first card is cased from Lisa Young. She used her card as a wedding card but I love the simplicity and the butterflies.
Supplies used are:

Paper: Whisper White, Blushing Bride

Inks: Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz

Stamp Sets: Bliss from Sale-a-bration 2011, Well Scripted (retired), For All You Do, Messages For Mom and Easter Blossoms

Accessories: Big Shot, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Basic Pearls, Wide Oval and Decorative Label Punch, Whisper White Organza  Ribbon

I'm not a huge fan of cutting out things so I used the butterflies from the Beautiful Wings embosslit instead. The inside of the card is stamped as well to give it a nice finish.

 The next card was inspired by a card by Juliana Bibas
I used the same layout but added the new embossing folder and the Mother of Pearl Technique.

Supplies are:

Paper: Marina Mist, Whisper White

Inks: Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Black Stazon

Stamp Sets: Elements of Style, All Holidays

Accessories: Big Shot, Framed Tulips Embossing folder, Blender Pen, Scallop Trim border punch, Marina Mist Satin Ribbon, Frost White Shimmer Paint

The Mother of Pearl effect, as seen here, was accomplished by taking some plastic wrap that has been wadded up into a ball and randomly blotting the Frost White shimmer paint all over the stamped image. I then let it dry and used a blender pen and inks to color the image. The effect is amazing!

 We did two small gift items as well; this teabag matchbook using matching colors to the above card and the Elements of Style set.

 The new oval punch was used on top of the one inch circle punch as well as the scallop trim border punch and some 1é4 inch Whisper White gross grain ribbon.
 Inside we put a small sentiment from Curvy Verses on a wide oval punch and a Teabag in the pocket.

The inspiration for this item came from Bev Watt over at Stampin' Ovation

Lastly we made a corner bookmark from the corner of an envelope. The inspiration is from Traci Gentry

I punched the edge with the Eyelet border punch to make it pretty.

I love the way these can fit inside a card.

That was the class..... the cards were really beautiful! and the class was fun!

Thanks for being here!
