I wanted to make my mom an ‘non traditional’ Mother’s day card this year. Something that did not have flowers and the standard Mother’s day imagery on it.
This is what I came up with:
Banner Greetings Penny Black Mother’s Day card
This is the supplies I used:
Paper: Stampin Up – crumb cake (base), very vanilla (mat) Stamps: Stampin Up: Banner Greetings in 2013-2014 In Colors, Hedgehogs – Penny Black, Cirlces / bubbles from Simon Says Stamp Exclusive set of stamps (designed by Kristina Werner!) “Best Mom Ever”
As always, your comments & feedback are always welcome!
For my latest workshop to celebrate the new catalog, I prepared a little thank you gift for the attendees. I wanted something that everyone could use, and that looked great, but was still within my budget – so I made these great goodie bag / party favors with a few basic tools.
Goodie bag party favors to workshop attendees
What you need to make these party favor goodie bags:
Big Shot / die cutting machine
Top Note die
DSP / card stock
small clear cello bags (I got mine at the dollar store)
shredded tissue paper (dollar store again)
* TIP* I stuck my embellishments to a piece of clear acetate to make sure that the presentation would be perfect.
I made the embellishments from the new “Buttons & Blossoms” clay molds available in the new Stampin Up catalog. Using the freshly pressed 2013 – 2014 In Color line, these are the greatest thing I have seen in a looooong time for crafting!! I hate it when I cannot find embellishments to match my project colors. NOW you can make your own!! ALl you need is the clay (which goes a LONG way – at least 60 embellishments from one bag of clay) and some reinkers. Your total investment is around $20. Just THINK of the savings!!! And the convenience… Need I go on?
