Mother's Day cards

Hello everyone! The signs of summer are upon us... it hit the 90's here in Northern California and allergies were at an all time high... sniff-sniff go my kids... time to stock up on the tissue! :-)

I'm here today with two Mother's Day cards I created for my Mom and Mother-in-law. I received my latest order from Stampers Dream today and I could not wait to play!

First up, my shabby chic card using Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden. I admit to hoarding this paper LOL! But I was so relieved to finally cut into it because it is just GORGEOUS! The stamp set is Motherly Love by Flourishes (currently sold out.) I used the Blossoms Three Nesties to layer my sentiment over some of the luscious Maya Road trims from Stampers Dream. I accented the card with a Prima flower and a dimensional butterfly clear pop sticker from Pink Paislee. The bling, by Zva Creative, is new on the Stampers Dream website.

Here's my 2nd Mother's Day card, using Pink Paislee's Hometown Summer papers. I colored up Sugar and Spice Marci by La La Land Crafts (LOVE her!) and popped her up on dimensionals. I cut out the hearts using the Spellbinders Charm dies (currently sold out) and stamped on one of the sentiments from the same Flourishes Motherly Love stamp set I used on my first card. I wrapped some of my favorite Maya Road Brown Burlap String around the card and attached the heart label with the sentiment to it. I added some mini pink I am Roses to the top left side of the card and added more of the Zva Creative bling -- love it!

That's my share for today! Thanks for stopping by...

Happy Mother's Day to all the scrappy Mommies out there -- enjoy your day and let yourselves be spoiled! ♡
