More Mother’s Day Cards

Filed under: Mothers' Day Cards, OperationWriteHome — Tags: , — patq3266 @ 2:05 am

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the hop. I made these cards using Papertrey Ink’s Delightful Dalia stamps, which is one of my faves. There is a matching die, which makes it super easy to cut out the perfect flower and leaves. The paper is random aqua paper and the ink is ColorBox aqua. I got the ribbon at Michael’s last weekend, but when I went back to get more, it was gone. The gold card is the same, but I used Papertrey’s Sunrise dotted ribbon to make the bow.

I love feminine cards, and I think this is definitely feminine for some heroe’s mother.

I hope you have arrived at my site from Jennifer’s blog and now you get to proceed to another Jennifer’s blog:

The next stop on the blog hop today is Jennifer’s blog at Jennifer’s Blog. She has a very fun Easter card for you to make.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Papertrey February Blog Hop Challenge”.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — patq3266 @ 12:42 am

Hi Everyone,

Here is my card for the February Blog Hop by Papertrey Ink. We are still getting lots of snow, and we’ll probably have at least another month of winter to go. So I’m still celebrating with snow cards.

I used the snow flakes from the Snowfall stamp set from Papertrey and Spring Rain cardstock and polka dot ribbon. I saw the sentiment on a pillow, so I copied it into Word and printed it out.

Lime Green/Navy Card

Hi Everyone,

Here are two cards for a challenge by Denami Design using Lime Green and Navy. The most exciting part of the cards is the double bows that I made. The stamps are from Denami.

I am almost at the end of making Mother’s Day cards for this year. I’ll be sending off at least 160 to Operation Write Home in the next week. I like to make a lot of Mother’s Day cards since it is the biggest “send a card” day for everyone. This way all our heroes get to have a nice card to send home.

New Purple Bow

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — patq3266 @ 12:05 am

Hi Everyone,

When I got home from work the other day, I went to Becca’s site and saw the neatest bow maker. She makes such beautiful bows, and now she uses a bow maker that she designed. So I immediately gave DH the task of making me one. Here’s my first attempt at making a bow using my new bow maker:

The flowers are Beautiful Blooms from Papertrey Ink. The nice thing is that I have the dies that cut the shapes, then stamp the flower on the cut cardstock. Makes it super easy.

Enjoy

Hi Everyone,

I have a few new cards today–mostly Mothers Day and birthday cards. It’s been fun to work with spring colors these days. It seems winter just keeps dragging on–thirty some more days until it should be over. So here they are:

Snowflake Card

Filed under: Greeting Cards, OperationWriteHome — Tags: , , — patq3266 @ 1:10 am

Hi Everyone,
Here is a really cute winter card–it captures the mood of most of the country, as we are buried in snow day after day. I’m one of the lucky ones who likes snow, so it’s okay with me.

This card uses Papertrey Ink’s Snowfall stamp for the snowflakes, Spring Rain (Papertrey Ink) cardstock, and the matching polka dot ribbon. Papertrey Ink’s ribbon is so nice to work with–love it! I got the sentiment from a pillow, so I typed it into Word and printed it out. No stamp has that saying that I know of.

Enjoy!

Mothers Day Cards

Filed under: Greeting Cards, Mothers' Day Cards — Tags: — patq3266 @ 1:02 am

Hi Everyone,

I started Mothers Day cards this month. Thought I’d put a few of them up. I’m into purple these days, the darker the better. There are more purple ones I’ll be putting up later. This card is really purple, but the lighting captures it as a navy blue. {strange}
