It did give me a chance to organize a bit and get some things moved around like I have been wanting to do, so it wasn't all bad.
I've also been running around trying to get tons of appointments done prior to our PCS move in June. My husband is in the Air Force and we are heading West to Colorado Springs in June, woohoo! I'm excited!
Today I only had a little time to create so I put together some quick Mother's Day cards. Like I said in a previous post, I have quite a few I need to make this year.
I didn't do much of a tutorial but I will let you know what items I used and how these came together.
For these two cards I went with a sort of monochromatic color pallet. I was thinking shades of browns.
I used some Stampin Up stamp sets that I have had for awhile and don't use enough. I should get those out more, they are stunning.
I also used my Tim Holtz Bigz Sizzix dress form die and stamped it with a LeBlanche word stamp and also edged it with distress Inks.
For the hummingbird card, I made a mask with the humming bird and stamped the hummingbird first, then simply put my mask over it and stamped the floral background. Easy peasy!
The butterfly is from Graphic 45 paper, simply cut out and the circle scroll is from a Hero Arts. (love those)
I also added some little gems to the card on the right to dress it up a bit more.
The hummingbird was cut into four equal pieces to sort of create a window-ish display.
I am entering these two cards into the challenge #4 over at
Hobby Cutz Challenge blog. This week they are challenging us to do something Monochrome.
Thanks for coming by and checking out my cards. I will be back soon with more tutorials and projects. Now that my room is back together and organized! YAY!
