Craft It Up & Link It Up - Mother's Day

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! Spring is definitely here - I saw my first hummingbird of the season on Friday :) It's time for a Craft It Up & Link It Up Challenge at Craftin Desert Divas. Our theme is Mother's Day...we want to see your projects celebrating Moms. Our sponsors are Craftin Desert Divas: a stamp set; The Cutting Cafe: any 3 files (winner's choice); Lori Whitlock: $15 GC to her SVG store.

Did you get the chance to hop along with us this weekend to see the new release??!! Aren't the new stamps fabulous!! I am using stamps from two of the sets for my project today...a card I created for my amazing Mom :) The papers are from Prima's Princess Paper Stack. The edges were distressed with a Zutter DIA (I warned you I was addicted to this machine!!) The back layer is a Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight. The circles are Memory Box Large Ringlets Die...love this one!! The next layer is a Spellbinders Captivating Square with a Classic Square Large die used for the cutout. The corner gems are Prima's Say It In Crystals.

The flowers are a mixture of The Paper Studio and Wild Orchid Crafts. Memory Box Floral Vines were cut in vellum and tucked amongst the flowers. Copper wire was twisted and also added. The butterflies are Memory Box dies and they were covered with Doodlebug Design Sugar Coating and popped up with foam tape.

The tag is a Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Flag die. Love You is from the new Simply Said stamp set (I masked off "More") and Mom is from the new Sugar & Spice stamp set (I masked off the "my"). The button in the center of the ribbon is a Die-Versions Buttons Wee Petite die.

This is beautiful and thank you for the reminder that Mother's Day is almost here. Since my mom is long gone I like to honor my Daughter on Mother's Day...for without her I wouldn't be a mother or grandmother. Creative Card Bliss...

Shelly said...

Unreal my friend! I just can't believe all the beauty that pours out of your craft room :) GORGEOUS!

I hope you day was a little more relaxing than mine phew... Field trip with the 10 year olds. First of all taking 30 - 9-10 yr olds is tough enough. I had 6 boys on a tour of a mission, 90 degree heat, church service where we had to keep them quiet :( while we visited the gardens, fountains outside the church.
So the moral of this story....boys, quiet, heat and a 3 hour tour just DOES not work :) I'm exhausted!
Have a great evening!

Denise said...

Such a richness of texture and lovely embellishments on this gorgeous beauty. Your Mom is sure to love it, and love you for taking the time to make such a wonderful card especially for her. You've got some of my fav dies on this one, (just got the tiny stitched banner over the wkend). Loved all those pretty flowers too, and the additions you have with the vellum vines & copper wire. Loving the distressing on the edges too. There's such a lot to look at & enjoy on this one. Really marvelous card, Lisa. But then, your Mom deserves a marvelous card! TFS & Hugs
