Simply Sunday: Celebrating Women Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy Mothers Day to you! Today I have a special post for you … we are celebrating woman with stunning Perennial Essence Designer Series paper and the Strong & Beautiful Stamp set.  The Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper features hand-painted impressionistic imagery in rich colors and it’s on sale right now.

Today’s four cards are easy to create, just stamps, ink and paper … and maybe a punch!  Let’s begin with honoring our Mothers today with our Mother’s Day card.  All the greetings used today come from the Strong & Beautiful stamp set.

I wish you could see the beauty of this paper, it really does look hand painted on canvas… stunning! My greeting was stamped on a scrap piece of paper and then just angled for a totally different look.  I think it makes makes the greeting stand out.

The next card highlights the Blackberry Bliss in the designer paper, the soft hues contrast our strong like a diamond greeting.  This is the perfect card to send to a friend who’s fighting on the front lines of this virus right now…

Here is a list of the products I used to make my cards today …

My next card is perfect to send to that friend who is always there for you.  The soft pink flowers on this card dance sweetly across the hand painted background…

I added the pretty little touch of silver by cutting the silver edge off the ribbon and pulling out only the silver pieces … then wrapped it around to create an eye catching embellishment.

My final card is perfect for our 2020 graduates, whether it be high school or collage, these kids have really been through a lot this year. I think the sentiment is perfect.  I used the Everyday Label punch again (it was also featured on the last card) but this time cut it in half so I could use it to make my greeting the focal point.  Couple of rhinestones and your card is complete.

If you like your cards clean and simple, these layouts are perfect … and the Strong & Beautiful stamp with with the Perennial Essence designer paper are a winning combination.  I’ll be back tomorrow using the same combo, but we’re stepping up the card layouts … time for some “Fun Folds”.

Thank you for taking time out of your Sunday to join me.

Have a wonderful Mothers Day!
