A gift set for my Mum

Posted by on August 10, 2010 in Cuttlebug, Flowers, Stamping | 0 comments


It was my Mum’s birthday a couple of weeks ago and even though I am late in sending her birthday present to her, I am sure she will be happy with the results… I know I am. I love making sets of cards and putting them together in a cute box and wrapping with some nice ribbon….

The design for these cards was adapted from a set made by the super talented Jennifer McGuire. I didn’t have a leaf punch or stamp so I made my own by hand….(I have since purchased a leaf stamp!!). I put 8 cards with envelopes into the set – they are a mix of Happy Birthday, Congratulations and Thank you cards.

I inked up some white cardstock with my Versa Color inks (using pinks, blues and purples) and used my sponge daubers to get the two tone colour effect in the flower centre. I them stamped the flower image in black over the top and cut them out. I also loved the box that I found in a cheap discount shop downtown…I think it works beautifully and makes the set look complete. Overall I am really happy with the results.

Supplies: White Regal Craft Card, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, Cuttlebug, Versa Color dye inks, Sponge daubers, Bazzill Cardstock, Kaisercraft and Wendy Irving rubons, 3D foam dots, Kaisercraft pearl embellishments.

Anyway, I bought a new stamp today, a little car stamp, so I am off to play with it and experiment with making some little boy cards…my 3 and a 1/2 year old son thought it was pretty good when I showed him!

Until next time…
