Thinking of You

I have been creating many flowers this week, but when I finally got crafty with this card, I chose other flowers.

I made my check list for this challenge. 1) flowers — I chose to use SU Bloom with Hope set. It was a hostess set, found in my Mother’s Crafting Supplies. 2.) die cut — I used the Square Rectangles dies from The Stamps of Life. 3) Ribbon — I found some red Grosgrain ribbon from my Mother’s collection. 4) patterned paper — I used Petal Passion SU DSP, also from Mom. 5) shiny — I found some gold twine in my stash. The cardstock used is SU Basic Black, SU Real Red, and Hobby Lobby Heavy Weight White. I saw this idea for this gatefold card on Sharon Armstrong’s blog. I changed it a little bit to work for my completed square, but her general cutting and scoring dimensions worked.

I enjoyed creating this card. It was a nice trip down memory lane remembering Mom and all of her supplies that are still in great condition. Now I need to think of someone special to send this card to.

Fancy Fold Easter Blessings

Butterfly Easter Blessings

I love fancy fold cards. I watched a video, by Connie Stewart (
https://simplysimplestamping.com/fancy-fold-easter-card-simple-stamping/ ) on Saturday and began making a card using supplies I had on hand.

I used Jelly Bean Green cardstock by Gina K Designs for the card base. I used Echo Park Spring Fling Patterned Paper. The yellow piece on the flap and the circle is Wild Dandelion, also from Gina K Designs. The butterfly image is long ago retired from Stampin’Up called Butterfly Prints with matching punch. I found a sentiment in the set Springtime Baskets from Gina K Designs, illustrated by Claire Brennan. This was a fun card to make.
