April Shower Springtime Hop

I have missed the last couple of hops that my friends have done, so I am happy I was able to hop this time.  We officially start at 9 pm. You may have hopped over from my friend Marsha's blog, I am sure that you enjoyed seeing her projects.
I made two cards today. The first card uses two stamp sets- Blooming with Kindness and Made for You.
  • The card base is Very Vanilla, I used Delicate Designs Embossing Folder on the bottom edge.
  • On a piece of Canvas Creations I repeatedly stamped the image from Blooming with Kindness in Rose Red. I used the Large Scallop Edgelit on the bottom edge. I layered it onto the Rose Red CS, then onto the card base.
  • On a scrap of canvas I stamped the flower again in Rose Red and the I stamped the phrase from Made for You in Raspberry Ripple. I used the Large Oval Punch to punch it out. I punched a scrap of Rose Red with the Scallop Oval Punch attached it to the card front then popped the phrase up with Dimensioals on the scalloped oval.
The second card uses Wonderful Mother, Hearts a Flutter and the Artisan Embellishment Kit.
  • The card base is Marina Mist,
  • I used pieces from the Artisan Embellishment kit on this card.  I added the dollie first.
  • On a scrap of Primrose Petals  I stamped the heart from Hearts a Flutter in Whisper White Craft ink and heat embossed it with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder then cut it with the Hearts a Flutter Framelit. I added it next.
  • On the tag from the kit I Stamped the phrase from Wonderful Mother in Raspberry Ripple and heat embossed it with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. I added it over the dollie and heart.
  • Next I popped the tag up with Dimensionals.
  • I Layered the two laces next with Sticky Strip from the kit. I then added Midnight Muse Ribbon over it again using Sticky Strip.
  • The button from the kit came next, then a Vintage Faceted Designer Button and a Large Pearl Jewel.
Your next stop is to my friend Jeans blog. I hope you enjoy your visits along our hop.


  1. Both are great cards, Kath, and so different from each other. I really love the bright collage of elements on your mother's day card, and the canvas really makes the monochromatic Blooming with Kindness card special.

  2. Kath, Darline projects. I always forget that the "focal image" can make a wonderful background!

  3. Hello! I am from the SU! Blog hop thread. I love the second card that you posted. I have been struggling on Mothers' Day cards - even for my own mom! That is inspiring :)

  4. Love the canvas card, so creative!

  5. Wow - love them both! I missed out on the Artisan Embellies, but I will definitely be CASEing the Rose Red card. TFS
