mother’s day – Happily Ever Crafter

Mother’s Love

1 crafts 2015-04-27 007

Hello! Miss me? πŸ™‚ Β I hope that you have been able to do some papercrafting! I have been making and selling LOTS of teacher cards and tags over the last week. Since I started posting some newer items over in my Etsy Shop: Happily Ever Crafter, I have been a busy little stamper. I. Love. It. Period! This is something that I have wanted to do for a LONG time. I’m getting a little nervous that things are heating up right before the kids get out of school for the summer. Do you think they will mind staying inside for 3 months? Ha. I better come up with a plan because I can not lose momentum! I love all of my papercrafting jobs!

I did manage to create a Mother’s Day card to share with you. πŸ™‚

I’m going to admit that this is not my most favorite card that I have ever created. I don’t know why I was having a hard time. In the end though if you add sparkle to ANY project it gets prettier so, that’s what I did! If you look closely you will see the bits of glitter around the center piece “Nobody loves like a Mom”.

And, of course, I stamped the inside to match! Well, I kind of hadΒ to since the set comes with these two BIG sentiments!

You can find the stamp set, Mother’s Love, in the current Occasions Catalog along with the Washi Tape that I used on the sides of the card.

If you have any questions about card OR just want to say, “Hello”, leave a comment. I *love* comments. πŸ™‚



Supplies Used for Today’s Card

So Very Grateful For So Many Things~Stampin’ Up!

Hello All!  I mentioned earlier in the week that I would post some super cute Mother’s Day cards.  I’m back today because I am a girl of my word. πŸ™‚  I also created some one of a kind envelopes-using the oh-so-versatile envelope punch board.  If you do not have one of those you need to order yours ASAP!  There is so much more you can do with tool besides the obvious!

Both cards measure 5″x5″

An inside view
Just a bit different orientation and colors and flipped
If you do not have this set, I highly recommend you get it if you like to “color”.  I have been wanting a set to watercolor and I just could not find one that I liked from the “big” catalog.  I actually just purchased this set about a week ago (it was not even on my radar) but, I am so happy that I did.  I have already made a set of cards for someone who needed them for a group, these mother’s day cards, thank you cards for customer orders, and my downline.  I will post the pictures of my customer thank you’s and to my downline in a few days because I just mailed those out today. πŸ™‚
I hope you enjoyed today’s creations.  I am still working on photography (I’m struggling).  I tried another lighting technique and that did NOT work.  I may have to figure out where I can take pics outside.  I don’t have a pretty place out there though.  Plus, I have such a tiny backyard and it’s pretty dark so, I guess I will have to put on a show in my front yard every couple of days for my neighbors to watch. LOL
Come back soon!

The Perfect Purses

Here’s a project that I never showed you for some unknown reason???  I made these purses for both my mom and mother-in-law for Mother’s Day.  The front pockets held a gift card to their favorite stores.  I also threw some chocolate in there.  I got the template from Becky Roberts.  I love how these turned out!
