Step 3 – Trim another sheet to 10 1/4 x 3 and ink edges.
Step 4 – Trim another sheet to 12 x 1 1/4 and ink edges.

Step 7 – Adhere all the paper like shown.

Step 8 – Adhere your double sided adhesive sheet to your soft finish white cardstock and die cut 3 flowers of your choice, the butterfly body, the circle and the tag from the Love, Life Tag. Then apply blue silk microfine glitter and rub with fingers to bring out the shine.
Step 9 – Die cut more flowers to layer using your white cardstock and the pieces of paper left from your trimmings and assemble flowers.
Step 10 – Die cut two of the butterfly overlays – one from white cardstock and one from a piece of patterned paper.
Step 11 – Die cut one ready to bloom using white cardstock.
Step 12 – Die cut one heart tag and one tree overlay using the Love, Life Tag die in white and one in patterned paper.

11 Gifts For Mom On Mother’s Day!

May 12, 2019

A very Happy Mother’s Day to all of the wonderful mother’s out there!

Today gives us such a wonderful opportunity to honor the women in our lives who raised us, praised us and made us who we are. They certainly have been a huge and important part of our lives!

Along with our Design Team, we put together 11 projects for mom on Mother’s Day –– enjoy!

Kathy Sabarese

To honor my mother, this background with the windmill pays tribute to her PA ‘Dutch’ heritage, and she loved tulips! I’ve put the tulips in Susan’s Garden Watering Can, which has a Mandala geometric pattern of ‘dots’ which are done by Tibetan Buddhists called ‘Dkyil-khor.’ This literally means ‘ that which encircles a centre.’ My dear friend, fellow stamper and tole painter, Barb Pelak, was kind enough to do a pattern on the Watering Can for me! I colored my tulips to match her colors in the pattern.
Happy Mother’s Day mom.  Miss you lots!
