A Sweet as Honey Mother’s Day with PhotoPlay Paper

Happy Thursday, crafty friends! With Mother’s Day quickly approaching this weekend, I thought now was the perfect time to share this mom card that I made for PhotoPlay Paper featuring their adorable Sweet as Honey collection.

As you may guess from the cute garden gnome, Sweet as Honey is a continuation of the popular Tulla & Norbert product line that PhotoPlay began releasing last year. This kit is perfect for spring and summer with it’s bright sunny colors and garden theme filled with flowers and bees. I created an outdoorsy scene for my card using stickers from the collection and a couple of die sets. I really love all the flowers, and I think most moms would, too.

To turn this card from an everyday card into a Mother’s Day card, I used a sentiment die set from PhotoPlay’s Say it With Stamps collection to die cut the word Mom into the front of the card. Once die cut, I nestled the wording back in place, adhering it to the inside of the card to create a fun, peek-a-boo window for a little element of surprise.

I hope all of you celebrating Mother’s Day this Sunday have an amazing weekend! And thanks so much for stopping by!

Hoppy Greetings with Therm O Web & Newton’s Nook

Happy Monday! This past week, the team at Therm O Web did a collaboration week with our friends at Newton’s Nook. And today I wanted to share the cards that I made for the Therm O Web blog using Newton’s adorable Hoppy Greetings stamp and die sets.

Although this stamp set is primarily an Easter theme, it does also have sentiment options that work well throughout the year. I paired this sweet bunny with some limited edition toner sheet card fronts from Therm O Web in a new color option, kraft! I used our green foil sheets to add foil highlights to the kraft card fronts. And I love how that green and kraft combo looks with this patterned paper from PhotoPlay Paper’s Sweet as Honey collection.

It’s been awhile since I’ve used my Zig Real Brush markers, and had almost forgotten how much I enjoy using those to watercolor. I broke out my corner rounder punch and favorite PhotoPlay borders die set to add some decorative details to the cards.

I’ve got the complete step-by-step tutorial for adding foil to our printed toner sheets, along with all the instructions for these cards, up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead!
