More cards!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you lovely ladies whose favorite name is "Mom". Actually my guys call me "Mama" even though they are all grown up now.

I've been on a bit of a card streak lately. For those of you who know me, I'm more of a scrapper than I am a card maker. I really enjoyed making all 3 of these and they didn't take me too long.

The first one is the card I made for my Mom for Mother's Day. I hope that she will enjoy all the bling. The butterfly was cut with the Indie cartridge (Cricut). The paper is KC Company.

This one was going to be a bridal shower card, but I believe it will end up being a wedding card....Long story...LOL. All I need to do is change the inside. I used the leftover pieces of paper from the card above. The bracket mat is cut with Sweethearts cart (Cricut). I sliced it (off center) then flipped the cut edges to the outside of the card so the bracket edges point towards each other. Make sense? From there, I just added flowers and other fun stuff. The stamps are StampinUp! "Bliss".

This last card is a birthday card for my husband's brother who rocks at guitar. This card came together so fast!!! The guitar and flourish is cut with Quarter Note cart (Cricut). I just happened to have a small piece left from a sheet of wood I've used on scrapbook layouts. It was the perfect size for this guitar!!! Actually everything came from my scrap that! I also LOVE how the wood looks with the Ranger glossy accents painted on it. I let it dry over night. The sentiment stamp, is also StampinUp!

Thanks for stopping by! See you next week. Enjoy your day!


  1. Julie I love that first butterfly! Practical Scrappers has a call for projects with gems on them and I would love it if you would submit it for that!

  2. I am so in love with your first card! I love that butterfly! But that guitar card for Mark's bro is awesome! You talented girl, you! I love that you added the glossy accent to it to make it look so real.
