A Framed Rose for Mom

I love making paper roses from the Fancy Flower punch.  I also had a Sizzix frame die I had not used and decided to make a card for Mother’s Day.  I also used the Sizzix Square Scallop Frame die to create the card base and I layered a Pear Pizzazz DSP background to the front, added the Blushing Bride frame then embellished with small quilled roses and a large rose.  The Beautiful Wings butterflies also were added with pearls.  The sentiment is stamped with the Four Frames rose frame.  I used a blender pen and my Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz stamp pads to color the roses on the sentiment frame.   This set is available until the end of the month.  It’s a sneak peek from the new Stampin’ Up! Idea Book & Catalog for 2011-2012.  After April 30th you’ll have to wait until July to purchase.  Click here for more info.

This is one of the samples I’ll be showing at my workshop on Saturday.  If you live in San Antonio and would like to attend please email me.  I’ll be demonstrating how to make the large rose and quilled roses.  Another reminder, the Occasions mini catalog expires at the end of the month and we’ll have a new summer mini.  Visit me tomorrow for a sneak peak from the Summer mini catalog.

A tisket a tasket a Mother’s Day basket

This week we’re celebration mom at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  The challenge is to make any project – card, gift set, gift card holder, scrapbook page or any 3D project with mom in mind.  We’d love to see your creativity.

I’m so excited about my project this week because it is a sneak peek for the Strength & Hope Stamp set which donates $2 from every purchase of this set to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  This set is so beautiful.  I also used the Four Frames set which is available through the end of April and it is a set that will next be available with new 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog.  I would love to see how you’re going to show mom how much you care.  I can’t wait to see your creation.

The basket is from a template I saw on Sassy Scrapper’s blog.  I embellished the basket with a rose I made using the Fancy Flower punch and the butterfly from the new Strength & Hope Stamp set which will be available on May 1st.  The card featured DSP from the Strength and Hope Digital Download.  If you’re wondering how I made the butterfly two-tone, I sponged the lighter color of Pear Pizzazz then Marina Mist on the outer edge, stamped then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  For great instructions on how to make the quilled rose.  Go to Tara Bilbao, she has a great instructional video on her blog on how to make them.

Flowers for Mom

I finally was able to make the roses from a tutorial on Julie Wiliam’s blog.  She gives wonderful instructions.  So make sure to hop on over to take a look.  These roses are perfect for a mother’s day card and I was also able to use my Embosslits Beautiful Wings die for the butterflies.  This butterfly die is on page 24 in the current occasions mini catalog which will expire at the end of the month.  So if there is a stamp set or die you want please order before it’s gone for good.  I used the Scallop Circle Bigz Die for my card base.  All you do is fold a piece of card stock in half, move the fold in 4 scallops from the cutting edge, and run it through.  VOILA, a card.  I am also submitting my card for PPA37 – Theme Challenge – Flowers.  Here’s my project.
