Mother’s Day card

Finally I have a few new cards to post today.  My goal of posting a bit more often hasn’t exactly worked out so far but I really haven’t been doing much crafting for a while. 

My crafting area was so out of control that I didn’t have a spot to create.  I had taken over the area where my computer is and that was just as bad.  I started cleaning up each area and ended up with two boxes of crafting supplies I need to put away. 

While I was trying to organize some of the supplies I came across a package of tags that I decided to stamp and use on some cards.  I used a few different inks and stamps to create a collage tag with a bit of a vintage feel.

I had a pack of five tags so made a set of five cards, each with a different butterfly accent.  I used walnut ink to color some red and white bakers twine to match the card.

It will be nice to have a few Mother’s Day cards ready for my Etsy shop.

I was able to make one more card with the supplies I had out and used every scrap of the patterned paper I used.

I love that I was able to use up a package of tags and a whole sheet of patterned paper with no leftover scraps.

Be Mine card

I love how all this pink just pops out with the black card base.

I will craft...Valentine Cards (11)

The Eiffel tower always makes me think of romance so was perfect for this card and the cute felt bee was just too cute to not add to this card.

I will craft...Valentine Cards (12)

These are some of the dollar store and discount store supplies that I used on this and other valentine/love themed cards I recently made.  Felt and snack picks from a dollar store, heart paper doilies and polka dotted tape from Target.
