Winter Wonderland Card from Mom – she did it again!

I have seen this card floating around for about 2 years now. It may be older, I’m not sure, but however old it is, it really struck a cord in me and I knew I wanted to make my own version of it. (CASE it) So, here is my version. One thing I will tell you is, it was very messy to make! I still have glitter and flocking in my hair!! LOL
 
All you need to do one of your own is:
 
Stamper’s Select White Cardstock (40 Sheets) – Paper Trey Ink
Deer Trio Die – Memory Box
Birch Trio Die – Memory Box (trees)
Resting Birds Die – Memory Box
and one truck load of white flocking & glitter!

Afternoon Tea Shaker Card by WMS Stamps

Written by mom:
“Well, everyone loves a good cup of tea, don’t they? ( Shuffle, ball, change – Badumpbum! )
This card was created with Waltzing Mouse Stamps, Afternoon Tea Set. This is a set I have waited a long time to use just because I don’t usually have time to make cards, even though I think I have every stamp set ever made! I like to pair up my stamp sets when I do make a card. I am one of those people that painstakingly creates and it is like giving birth to me! Finally Graphic 45 came out with the perfect paper for that lovely little mousey stamp set, Botanical Tea! It was a match made in heaven and I knew I could move ahead with this one.
I single cut the tea pot, then double cut the foam for the shaker window. The tea cup was fussy cut just to add a little extra. Found the right tea colored glitter and a card was born! Not much to it but I love the way it turned out. Just paper and the die cut tea pot is all you need, and maybe a real cup of tea! ( Shuffle of to Buffalo – Badumpbum! )”

Mom Did It Again! “You’re a Doll” Shaker Card

Shake, shake, shake… 

Shake, shake, shake

Shake your ca-aard, shake your ca-aard

So shaker cards are all the rage now and they are a little more time consuming to make, but boy the result is fantastic! My mom tried her first shaker cards recently and I’m posting them this week on display. This card was such a great idea with the Russian nesting doll stamp set from WMS. I just love the spring take on it too with the floral die cut piece and the monochromatic lavender, purple and grape hues. Please enjoy and feel free to give mom props in the comments {grin}.

Mother’s Day Card

A quick share here… I made this Mother’s Day card with grey cardstock, hydrangea stamp (only using the blossom portion) for the back ground, sheer pink ribbon, Luxury Stack paper by DCWV (circle shaped piece behind sticker sentiment), Fimo clay tiny pink flowers and sheer grey ribbon at the top. The sentiment sticker is from Sticko and was a bit transparent so I used white cardstock to adhere it to then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink in Pumice Stone. Easy Peezey. Love pastel colors.
