Happy Thursday! I’m on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog with this Floral hello card today. I’m using a bunch of pretty floral patterned papers, oodles of dies, and luscious adhesives.
The blues and yellows just play off each other on this floral hello card so beautifully, don’t you think? The rustic-looking flowers are created very simply using the Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Girlie Grunge Pennant set and your favorite rolled flower dies.
The “Hello” is from a new stamp company called Right At Home Stamps and this set is called Script Greetings. I just adore the font so much. Embossing the sentiment in gold really makes it pop, yet ties it together with the yellow.
There is a full tutorial (with step-by-step instructions) for this pretty floral hello card on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today. If you’d like to make a card like this for yourself, going to the blog is a great place to start! By using a different selection of patterned paper and a new mix of floral dies it would give this floral card a completely fresh and new look. Mixing florals and patterns is a sure fire way to make a card “pop” .
Have a wonderful Thursday…it’s almost FRIDAY! :)
It was my Mom’s Birthday yesterday. And I made her a card. :) It’s what I do. The card that I made for her is today’s blog post in the CLASSroom for Ellen Hutson, LLC. I’ve actually been working on the card for a while since I really wanted it to be special. There’s some things you need to know about my mom…
My mom is my chauffeur (since I can’t drive), she is who I talk to every day (either by text or by phone) — she keeps me grounded. My mom makes me laugh. She gives me a shoulder to cry on when I need it. Even if she doesn’t understand what’s going on. She hasn’t gone into her “golden years” gracefully. She’s gone kicking and screaming, dancing, and laughing. And I wanted to make my mom a birthday that would make her smile.
I made this card for her to let her know that I celebrate her every day. And that her birthday is just one more day to tell her I love her.
The card for my Mom’s Birthday can be seen today in the CLASSroom along with the full tutorial on how to make it, if you should want to see my process. (With the exception of my coloring process – yaaawwwn!)
All of the supplies that I used to make this card I have listed below along with a few alternatives. If any of the items are currently out of stock with ellenhutson.com, you can request to be put on the waitlist for the item for when it comes back in stock (love that feature!).
I hope that you like today’s card and that it makes you smile as much as it makes ME smile. :)
Sorry for the absence. While I’ve had some things posted here and there I’ve also had a lot of things going on in my personal life. A huge loss in my life. This has been a really difficult time. :( And, I haven’t been the only one to suffer a loss. It’s been a rough month. I thought it only fitting to make a Sympathy Card for my post on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog today.
As usual I have a tutorial for this Sympathy Card. And I’m using some of the brand new Gelatos® too. They are really beautiful. So creamy, blendable, and the colors are incredibly saturated. You will all just LOVE them!
I wish so many people didn’t need Sympathy Cards right now, but the good news is, is that cards like the one above are pretty easy to make a few of (mix up the design a little) and have on hand.
Wishing you all love, laughter, and peace.
**The stamp set that I used is from Technique Tuesday and is called You’re So sweet, if you’re interested in purchasing.**
