More Mother’s Day Cards For Special Moms

It is almost Mother’s Day! What a joy to make cards for special friends and families to celebrate how special they are. And today I have 4 Mother’s day card I would love to share with you.

I used the Mama’s and Grandma’s – April 2016 Sentiment Kit from Unity Stamp Company on all the cards:

Unity April Sentiment Kit - Card 1

Unity April Sentiment Kit - Card 2

Unity April Sentiment Kit - Card 3

Unity April Sentiment Kit - Card 4

For the card bases, I used the American Crafts Assortment card set. I found them at TJMaxx and they have pretty pattern background that I can just add embellishments and sentiment.

I added some vellum, paper doilies, and clear gems to embellished the cards. Some of the sentiments I heat-embossed them on black cardstock and vellum.

All these cards are on their way to some special moms that I know in my life. I thank God for them!

I hope you all like them and THANK YOU for visiting me today!

Mixed Media Tag: She

Mother’s Day is this weekend and one of my favorite Bible verses from Proverbs 31 is:

“She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭31:25‬ ‭NLT‬‬

And I found a stamp with this verse from Unity Stamp Company, She Is Without Fear.

I have been making tags for my tag ring that I started early year. On these tags have favorite quotes, encouraging words and Bible verses, too.

Today, I would love to share a tag for my tag ring 🙂 and it is a mixed media tag.

Mixed Media Tag: She

I use Canson Watercolor Papers 140 lbs for my tags.

For this tag background, I painted with some Gelatos. I speeded up the drying process using my Craft Heater. When it dried completely, I stamped the image from She Is Without Fear using Memento Black Ink Pad.

Then I added some butterflies from Splatters & Flutter from ARTPlorations using homemade modeling paste.

It is I call a clean and simple mixed media, if there is such thing… LOL! 😀

My tag is done and is on the ring with the others 🙂

May 2016 SOTMH Blog Hop: Celebrate With Cake

May is here and some of the May flowers are blooming everywhere. We love flowers and planning to plant more this year so we’ll have more blooms in the Summer 🙂

Welcome to the May Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop! Today I am joining a blog hop featuring May Stamp Of The Month: Celebrate With Cake. I am sharing couple cards using these new stamp set.


This month there are 33 participants on this blog hop. If you arrive from Maureen, you are on the right track 🙂 but if you are here first, you can continue hopping to the next blog to make the loop. Just in case you got lost, you can always go to HERE to see the full list of participants for this month blog hop.

In this May SOTM stamp set there are 17 stamps that you can use to build gorgeous cake to celebrate special events such as birthday, anniversary, wedding, or just a note to say how sweet they are to you. You can color the images using any mediums, like watercolor paints, watercolor pencils, markers, color pencils, or anything you use for coloring 🙂

And also, this month CTMH also release New Products and the idea book, Seasonal Expressions 2. So many new pretty stamps, papers and embellishments including lots of beautiful inspirations and projects shown in the new idea book.


From all new paper packets, I am in love with the Calypso paper packet. The colors and patterns beautiful. I made a card using the May SOTM and this paper:

Celebrate with Cake - Card 1

The first card above, on a piece of Watercolor Paper, I stamped the cake images with VersaMark™ Ink Pad, added some Ranger™ Princess Gold Embossing Powder and then heat set them using Craft Heater. Then I colored the images with Watercolor Paints using the smallest brush from the Paintbrush Set.

On another piece of Watercolor Paper, I stamped and heat embossed some roses. Then, I used Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors to cut those little roses and added them on the cake using some glue dots.

I used Gypsy Cardstock as the mat and stamped the sentiment with Black Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad. The background paper is from one of the Calypso paper packet. Then I added the finished panel on the card base using adhesive runner.

Celebrate With Cake - Card 2

And for the second card, I created the background by stamping the candle stamp using Black Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad.

On a piece of White Daisy Cardstock, I stamp the cake and candle with Memento Black Ink pad. I colored the cake using ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Bronze MarkerShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Clay Marker and ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Barely Beige Marker. I started with the lightest color and worked on the shadow of layers and blended the 3 colors using the lightest one (Barely Beige). And for the candle, I colored it using ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Carmine MarkerShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Tender Pink MarkerShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Marigold Marker and ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Golden Yellow Marker. After that I cut them with my Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors then added them with 3d foam tape on the paper doily that I had glued on the card.

I stamped the banner and sentiment on White Daisy Cardstock with Black Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad, fussy cut it with Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors. I also cut the other banner tail so I can tuck it under the cake. I used adhesive runner to add the banner. Then I finished my card with some clear sparkle gems.

Hand-stitching and Gift Card Vellum Envelope

Today, I am still learning how to use vellum and acetates at Online Card Classes – Clear and Sheer. So many creative ways we can use them on our card-making projects.


I attachaed the vellum banner with hand-stitching using CTMH Stitching Guide and gold thread.

On that vellum banner, I stamped the images with VersaMark ink, added some Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set them with my Craft Heater.

The vellum giftcard envelope I made using WRMK Envelope punch and used Tombow Vellum Adhesive runner to attach it inside the card.

I used the Vellum is from Bazzill Paper. And the card-base is from American Crafts.

The stamp set is from CTMH, Smarty Pants, one of the new stamp sets that will be released tomorrow ❤️

Here the front card:


And here’s the inside of the card:


Thank You so much for visiting today! I love this class for sure 🙂

Have a fabulous weekend!
