Stampin’ Up! Apron of Love Mother’s Day Card

Stampin' Up! Apron of Love Mother's Day Card

This is my Stampin’ Up! Apron of Love Mother’s Day Card and in the video tutorial I make a more general version for all occasion!  My mom happens to love baking, so this was perfect.  However this set is so versatile!  There are scissors for crafters, BBQ tools for the Dad’s (or Mom!), flowers, etc…

There are die cuts for the pocket on the apron, but in the video I also show how I made a pocket stamping directly on the apron!  And you also have the option of stamping the tools, here I chose to use sponge daubers to make sponging easier!   I also share a simple trick in the video for tying a knot!

Start this card with an A2 white card base cut at 11″ x 4.25″, score and fold in half at 5.5″.  The berry layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″, and the top white layer is 5″ x 3.75″.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate you thinlit Quick & Easy card

Stampin' Up! Celebrate you thinlit Quick & Easy card

I created this Stampin’ Up! Celebrate you thinlit Quick & Easy card in both Soft Sky and Blushing Bride (as shown in the video tutorial.  I love how cute it is, while being so easy to make!  My mom’s cooking philosophy is quick, easy, tastes good…  I thought that translated rather well for cards!  Quick, easy, looks good! LOL…

Start with an A2 size cardstock cut at 11″ x 4.25″, score and fold in half at 5.5″.  The white cardstock front and the inside piece are both cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  the Stitched circle framelit is 2 3/8″.  Stamp the flourish in Lemon Lime twist and adhere the circle framelit.  Cut the “amazing” and the “you” and use a fine tip glue to adhere.  Use a glue dot to attach the Mini striped lemon lime twist ribbon knot.  Then scatter a few adhesive backed tutti frutti sequins.

Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Stampin’Up! Oh So Succulent Mother’s Day card

Stampin'Up! Oh So Succulent Mother's Day card

The Stampin’Up! Oh So Succulent Mother’s Day card is colorful and yet still not a ton of fussy layers.  Which I personally love, but it’s not always practical.

Start with an A2 base in Whisper White cardstock cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold at 4.25″.  The dapper denim layer is 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″, and the embossed white layer is 5.25″ x 4″. Wrap with the White organza ribbon.

Attach the Succulent flowers and greenery in a layered pattern.  Stamp the sentiment on white and layer on dapper denim.  Flag the ends and remember to make the envelope pretty!

Stampin’Up! Mother’s Love Mother’s Day Card

Stampin’Up! Mother’s Love Mother’s Day Card

I am sometimes drawn to really elaborate and fancy cards full of lot’s of technique…but on the other end of the spectrum are simple, clean and pretty cards that just speak to you!  This was one of those for me! 

Stampin'Up! Mother's Love Mother's Day Card

The paper was cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″, then scored at 5 1/2″… I then cut the front of the card at an angle, lining up the front bottom outside corner on the 1″ line, and the top score line on the 1/2″ line (laying face down) :

I used sticky tape to attach the two outermost flowers first, being careful to not go above or outside the card back ( I wanted it to still fit into an envelope! ) then I popped up the middle flower with a dimensional. Here is a closer look:
