{Clean and Simple} – Parent

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

Take a look at my card:

1500 colored pencils

For this card, I used Technique Tuesday Flowers For Mom Stamp Set! It’s just the cutest stamp I’ve seen. I love that little flower. Perfect for coloring.

Here’s how I created this card:

Cut cardstock to 4 x 8, scored at 4.

Use the MISTI to stamp all of the images and sentiment from Technique Tuesday Flowers for Mom stamp set using Altenew Jet Black Crisp Dye Ink.

Color the flower and the butterfly using Tombow 1500 Colored Pencils. They are brand new and layer colors beautifully.

Add just a touch of Wink of Stella glitter to the flower petals and butterfly for an added touch.

To finish the card off, use We R Memory Keepers 3 Way Corner Punch to punch all four corners using the 10mm and the 7mm sides.

What do you think?

Decorated Mother’s Day Frame

Hello, everyone!!! I’m here today to show you a how I decorated a Mother’s Day frame for my mom.

Do you buy or create gifts to give to your Mom on Mother’s Day? I love creating gifts for my mother. She gets so tickled pink when she gets something that was created just for her.

This year is no different. My mother loves getting photos of all of her children in one picture. That rarely happens so when I went through my photos on my camera, I found one that she doesn’t have and would totally love.

 Let’s take a look:

I used Deflecto’s 8 x 10 Clear Frame for this gift! I went through my scrapbook stash to find the perfect embellishments to personalized the frame.  Once I found the perfect embellishments from Simple Stories Love Adore Kit, I went straight to work.

Here’s how I created it:

 1. Before entering the photo into the frame, I placed it down on my table mat that has lines.

2. Using the lines, I lined up the letters for the sentiment on the top and bottom of the frame.

3. Once all of the stickers are neatly placed on the frame, I added the photo to the frame.

 My mother is going to love this picture frame. This photo was taken four years ago when my younger brother was graduating from high school. Next weekend he is graduating from college, so we get to take another group photo. Depending on how it looks, I might swoop this photo for that one, LOL!
So what do you think? Will you decorate your picture frames with stickers in this manner? I would love to hear from you.
