Here are just a few cards I made this month. I concentrated on making Mothers Day cards since the deadline for them is April 1. I always make a few cards for birthdays and general cards, since those needs never have deadlines. I hope you enjoy these cards.
Pink/Green For You
This card uses the SU Boho Blossom punch with the three flowers in the One of a Kind stamp set. It’s great to have the punch match the stamps!! I used Pretty in Pink and Mellow Moss ink. The ribbon is from Michael’s.
Pink/Green Love You
This is such an easy card to make. I use the flourish from the SU Christmas tree set and the flowers are stamped using the SU One of a Kind stamp set and cut out with the Boho Blossoms. I cut a pink rectangle 1.75″ x 4.25″ and adhere the bow to it before gluing it onto the card. The Love You is from the SU tiny words stamp set. That set is so versatile because the sentiments can fit in anywhere on a card.
Purple/Green Mothers Day
This is similar to the Pink/Green card above, but this time it’s using Almost Amethyst ink and a lavender bow from Michaels. The sentiment is one of the new clear SU stamps that were just released. This is a really nice set with lots of useful sentiments, and it’s great that they are now clear, so you can see exactly where they appear on your card.
Purple/Green Birthday Wishes
This card is similar to the ones above it. I used the scallop punch to cut out the Birthday Wishes stamp. I used Old Olive for the green at the bottom of the card, and lavender ribbon from Michael’s for the bow.
Olive Green/Dark Purple Birthday
This card uses the SU Garden Green stamp set and Old Olive cardstock. I found some ribbon at Michael’s that matches the green–it actually looks better in real life. But as you can imagine, this is a really easy card to make.
Purple/Garden Green Sympathy Card
This card is made with my favorite PTI stamp set. It’s so easy to use, and looks so nice in every color combination. This is the set that was available last year at CHA to anyone who spent more than $100 at the PTI booth. If you didn’t go to CHA, you could buy it for megabucks on ebay–if you were the lucky winner.
Green/Aqua Friend Card
I think the color on this card is Baja Blue, which has a lot of green in it. I love making this card, but you need patience because you have to cut out the flowers. Anyway, it’s an SU stamp. The brads are from Michael’s and just happen to match nicely. After I cut out the flowers, I color the centers just a little to make it a l ittle different. The little flower is from the Season of Joy stamp set. It’s actually a small poinsettia, but it will pass as a spring flower on this card.
Aqua Always on My Mind
My favorite thing about this card is the sentiment. These are SU words that are uneven–it makes it so easy to stamp and not worry about whether they are on the card straight or not.
