Plethora of Mother’s Day Cards Made

So yesterday was a busy day. I have a Plethora of Mother’s Day Cards Made. Since Mother’s Day is just around the corner, Sunday, May 14, I thought I should get busy and make a few cards.

For these cards I decided to use some papers I had in my stash. You know the ones, those that got purchased for some reason or another. Or in my case there was a huge stack of papers given to me.

Thumbing through the papers I found a couple of scrapbook papers that I thought would be beautiful backgrounds.

Once the background papers were selected I think started looking through the other papers and bits. I have 12 in. x 12 in. scrapbook folders that hold scraps of paper. Having these folders helped in the making of all of these cards.

One of my friends came over to craft with me and she let me borrow a really pretty die set. I’m so glad that she came over. I’ve been using these dies like crazy. lol

Here are the Plethora of Mother’s Day Cards Made in this card making session.

The first card features Brutus Monroe – Bunny Kisses set. This was stamped with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven. I also used embroidery floss to tie to the card. A little sparkle was added using Tulip Glitter Glue. The flowers are from Prima.

The first card I used the sketch from Paper Play Sketches #38

Current Sketch:

It was fun to have a challenge while making this card. It gave me ideas on how to use up small bits of paper I have had for a while now. I was also able to use a couple of embossing folders to get added texture to this card.
Since I got the card finished I do plan to enter it in the challenge. Who knows maybe someone will like seeing it and be inspired.
The other card designs I didn’t use a sketch I just decided to make what felt good to me. Another friend gave me a large stack of white paper doilies. So I’ve been trying to use these when possible.

Love the background paper from K&Co. I think this one turned out so pretty.
This butterfly card I thought was perfect for the Color Challenge at Paper Play Sketches and Color Challenges.

Making the pinwheels is really easier than it looks. Once I figured out how many pieces to cut and how to put these together.

For the two pinwheels, I made there are five cuts of each of the two dies. The pinwheel looks best when two sided paper is used. The Rinea Foil was perfect since there are several papers that have different colors on each side.

Be aware that this card will get smashed if you put it in an envelope and mail it to someone. I would suggest either hand delivering the card or putting it in a small box so that it arrives in its full beautiful glory.

Make sure you head over to the Rinea website and see all the beautiful colors of paper foils that they offer. This isn’t your typical foil paper, it is better.

I hope that today’s post inspires you to make a pinwheel with the Rinea foil. Feel like a kid again and make one for yourself.

How to make a Let it Snow Greeting Card

Today it’s How to Make a Let it Snow greeting card. Featuring Rinea foil..

Using Spellbinders dies to cut the Rinea embossed foils – Blue, Light Blue and Silver. I made this beautiful but simple greeting card. This paper cuts easily with die cutting tools.

How to make a let it snow greetting card

If the Rinea paper was a little stiffer I could see cutting this snowflake into ornaments to hang in a window. So that both sides of the paper could be seen.

Also used in this project: Brutus Monroe Cornflower Mini Chalk Ink pad to stamp the PSX Snowflake stamp and to ink around the edges of the card.

True Turquoise and Denim Blue Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist was sprayed on the card topper.

The PSX snowflake was tamped in the cornflower ink. Then the Reina foil snowflakes were layered on top.

How to make a let it snow greetting card

The phrase “Let it Snow” is from Paper Studio and was stamped with Cornflower chalk ink on a scrap piece of paper. A crop a dial corner rounder in the quarter inch size was used to round the corners.

Here is a video of the whole process.

The Spellbinder dies made this card come together easily. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial on How to make a Let it Snow Greeting Card.
