Mother’s Day Label Framelits Easel Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we are introducing new design team members.  We’re thrilled to have Diane Vander Galien, Erika Clark, Elizabeth Price and Bobbie Trost join us.  Hop on over to HSS and see their wonderful projects as well as the rest of the design team’s projects.

For this week’s challenge it’s all about mom.  Create any paper craft project – card, 3d project, scrap book page.  For my project I created an easel card using the Label Framelits. Love, Love, Love this die set.  I also used the Doily Die, Beautiful Butterflies die and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.  For some extra sparkle I smooched my card with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch.  So pretty!

Fluttering with Fall

Often I take inspiration for my cards from what I see in my garden.  I try to always have my camera since you never know where you can get your next idea or photo op.  I’m glad I had my camera on this day since these butterfly pictures were all taken on the same day!   The Pride of Barbados flower with its orange, yellow and red color coordinated perfectly with the in colors, dusty durango, crushed curry, melon mambo and rich razzleberry SU papers and inks.  Enjoy the butterflies.  They’re almost gone.

Welcome Fall 2009!

Cool weather is here!  This weather sure does beat the 100 degree + days we had just a few weeks ago.  I am so excited for the change in the weather it has inspired me to create cards with a fall theme.  I created the following with SU stamp sets For All You Do and Forest Friends. I love these stamp sets they are so versatile.

I recently had my first SU party with a group of fabulous gals and showed these cards.  I hope these inspire you too and I would love to see your creations.
