Birthday Card for Mom

Hello fellow Crafters, Happy Friday! I have a very special card to share with you all today. I made this birthday card for my mom:)

My color inspiration came from Cupcake Inspirations. Loved this color combo. Ok I know that my Apricot color is a little darker then the one on the color pallet but hey, it stills works :)lol.

I added lots of pop dots to give my card dimension. I don't know if you can see from the picture, but the paper has a very pretty metallic shine to it. The pretty paper rose is from my stash. I made it a few weeks ago with the Rolled Flower Dies from My Creative Time.

I used the DCWV "The Peachy Keen Stack. I Love this paper stack, I got it for sale at Joann's at the beginning of the year, and Im just getting the courage to use it up:)lol. Gotta love pretty paper:)lol. 

Kept the inside of the card simple.

Mothers Day Cards

Hello fellow Crafters:) Hope everyone had a great weekend and a fabulous National Scrapbook Day. I found some time to craft this weekend, and made these two beautiful mothers day cards. At first glance they might look identical, but their slightly different lol. I made these Mothers Day cards to give out to my Mom and Mother in-law for Mothers Day.

The paper came from DCWV and also from I think it was a My Minds Eye paper stack (sorry I don't remember the name of the paper).  I used lots and lots of My Creative Time products for my card. I love, love, love the dies and stamps that Emma releases. Trust me, you need to get your hands on some of her products to play with:)lol

I cut the frame out from chipboard and then took some of my brand new Ferro Brenstein-Gold paint. OMG this paint is awesome! The picture doesn't do it justice. Not only is the paint a rich and shinny gold, it also leaves a bit of a granny residue to give it a rustic effect, totally awesome! I got this paint at Scrapbooking Made Simple, my new favorite crafting store to go to, I just wished I lived closer to them lol:) 

For the inside of my card I kept it simple.

Loved how my cards turned out, there chic, classy, and girly:)lol. 

Supplies used: All dies and stamps can be found at My Creative Time online store.
Stiched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies 
Stitched Postage Frame Die 
Lowercase Fun Dies

Birthday Card with a hint of Canadian

Hello fellow bloggie friends:) I have a birthday card to share with you all today. My brother asked me to make him a birthday card for his boss. He asked that the Canadian maple leaf be somewhere on it:) So I jumped on the Silhouette store and found this beauty.

Even though I was short on time,  I think this was the fastest card I put together:). I loved how it came out!

I used the "Happy Birthday" Cuttlebug folder on the maple leaf, to give it a bit more of detail along with some gems to give it some sass. The sentiment on the front of the card is from My Creative Time's Floral Sentiments.

On the inside of the card I used a smaller maple leaf and added the adorable classy girl silhouette from  My Creative Time's Classy Girl Furbaby Die set and My Creative Time's Classy Girl Accessories. This is the first time I used this set of dies, and I can assure you, it wont be the last. They are so much fun! The inside sentiment came form My Creative Time's Wow So Many Candles Stamp Set. I added some sequence to give it some sparkle:)

I had an extra maple leaf so I added it to the back of the envelope to give it a classy look:)

I would love to enter my card in the following challenges:
