CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – For the Ladies

It’s Saturday and you know what that means!!!  It’s time for another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Design Team Blog Hop!  This week’s theme is For That Special Lady…can be a mom, sister, or special friend!  We all need ideas for these wonderful ladies in our lives!  I was fortunate to spend last weekend at a stamping retreat to two of my most special friends that live FAR away from me now!


Another wonderful woman in my life is my mother!  I thought I’d share my the Mother’s Day card I made for her using Circle of Spring stamp set.  Of course, I snuck in TWO of the new In Colors, Sweet Sugarplum and Peekaboo Peach!  I love them combined.


Circle of Spring

Here are the details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Sweet Sugarplum, folded in half.
  • On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Crumb Cake cardstock.
  • Along the left side is a strip of Playful Palette Washi Tape in the striped pattern.
  • The Circle of Spring wreath was stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum and Pear Pizzazz Markers.  It was cut with the Wonderful Wreath Framelits.
  • My Amazing Mother from Greatest Greetings (made it in the new catalog!) was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on a strip of Sweet Sugarplum and cut with a flag end.
  • Peekaboo Peach cardstock was punched with the Bow Builder punch twice, then assembled into a bow for the front with Mini Glue Dots.
  • A little sparkle with some random Rhinestones puts on the finishing touch!

Very pretty color choices. I looked at the yellow bow and wondered what color it could be, then I realized it must be one of the new In Colors! Wow.
