Mother’s Day is just a week away…time to get that Mother’s Day card done! If you have the SU That’s the Tag bundle, you are all set…if you don’t have it, you can get it now for a discount as it is retiring!
Yes, the bundle has been split so you get it for even a better price buying the thinlits called TIMELESS TAGS and the stamp THAT”S THE TAG separately.
Check it out HERE and HERE.
I cut out a black daisy from a 3 1/4″ black square. I also cut out a yellow daisy from a 3″ yellow square and saved the middle of the flower. I glued a white piece of cardstock between the black and yellow square. I inlaid the black daisy cut out inside the yellow oval against the white cardstock. I glued the yellow middle into the black daisy. I also cut out the green leaves using the same daisy thinlit and inlaid the leaves into the black daisy. You could also die cut a blue sky to go around the daisy!
I die cut the butterflies out of some black card stock and glued each one onto the yellow square and added some pearls. On the inside, I just die cut the butterflies on the white and used the negative.
A simple card with a WOW but a little die cutting and puzzle piecing for you to do:)

I am loving the SU Basket Bunch stamp set with its coordinating Basket Builder Framelits!
The stamp set and framelits are not just for Easter, I made a cute thank you card I am sharing with
the Paper Players Sketch Challenge # 337.
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

The Creating Pretty Cards Challenge #58 (CPC58) is up at Craft Project Central.
Remember- for every 10 submissions,
we pick a FREE monthly subscription of the winners’ choice!
Check HERE for details on posting YOUR fabulous creation.
Here is the sketch by Monika you can use for inspiration.
I created this card using the SU Grateful Bunch stamp set
with its coordinating Blossom Bunch punch.
I used four of the retiring 2014-16 In Colors- Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist, and Mossy Meadow. I tried to work in the fifth color Lost Lagoon but it just didn’t make it!
I can’t remember the last time I used Very Vanilla- forgot how pretty it is!
I love this set because it is photopolymer with some lovely images
and has a punch that is super easy to punch all three flowers at one time. As you can see, I bordered each flower with a matching cardstock punched flower to make them pop!
*I think too many times, we limit ourselves by the sentiment. Just because this appears to be a “thank you” card, it can easily be altered by simply writing inside, “I hope you enjoy your special day” or “Happy Birthday”. You know the person is still awesome and you are still grateful even if it is a birthday card or congratulations card, etc!

When I prepare for a Product Class, I end up thinking that stamp set is my favorite until another one soon takes its place. So, as of today, I am loving the SU World of Dreams stamp set. I played around with it again this morning when I saw Justin Krieger’s new site- Stamp Ink Paper Challenge. I missed his inaugural challenge but here I am with
Challenge #2 to use a sketch and some favorite goodies- Lost Lagoon and Rich Razzleberry cardstock and ink with the Windows Collection Framelits.
Here is my card:
I colored my rhinestones with my Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities to add a little color coordination- they look really sweet:)
Thanks for buzzing by today…
7/28/15 So excited to be an Audience Pick this week! Thanks!
I loved the colors sweet Anne Marie chose for the Paper Players # 235 challenge.
I pulled out my SU Painted Petals stamp set and went to work.
I was happy with the results:)
This set is so pretty and has a “dotty” stamped appearance to it- rustic and old-fashioned. I suggest choosing the photopolymer form of this stamp set since it is a two-step stamping process. Easy peasy when you can see through the stamp!
Item # 137146 (photopolymer)
*SU has found photopolymers to be something stampers are liking so we can expect to see more of the photopolymer choice in future catalogs. Yesterday’s post of the JUST KIDDING stamp set is the last of the “monthly releases” that are good for 6 months from the issue date. SU is gearing up for the new catalog that will be coming out in June:)
*If you place a $30 order with me starting today and up until the end of March… I will send you a kit with all the materials to make this card (minus the stamped images.) You can use your own SU Painted Petals or swap out other images to put in place of the Painted Petals images. Please email me to let me know if you place an order since a few people purposely and often “accidentally” choose “no contact” on orders and that does not allow me to track them down:)
