Happy Monday Crafty Friends! Welcome to a new week of inspirations.

Inspired by Stamping, Joanna Munster, Spring Lilacs Paper Pad & Stamp Set

Today, I was so excited to create! I have been busy drawing our May release stamp sets the last few weeks and have sent them off to the manufacturer on Friday. Yay! Now, I can have some fun in my craft room and start creating again! I have been thinking of my Mom lately and made this card for her. It is in the mail today too.

Inspired by Stamping, Fancy Labels 2 Die

For my inspiration, I found an old Mojo Monday sketch on Pinterest to jump start my mojo. When I first started stamping, years ago, they were the first place I went to get my creative juices flowing. Today, is the first time I have made a card in over a month and it helped so much.

Inspired by Stamping Spring Lilacs Stamp Set and Paper Pad

After cutting out my paper with our Fancy Labels 2 die, I adhered both layers together with sticky tape. I then trimmed off the bottom so that it would fit perfectly on top of the banner. I hid the yucky line with some of our White Crochet Tape.

Inspired by Stamping, Joanna Munster, Mother's Day Bouquet Stamp Set, Mother's Day Card

Whenever cutting out with my Silhouette, I always cut an entire 12×12 piece of cardstock. This allows me to grab a tag quickly and stamp on it so I don’t have to wait for my Silhouette to cut out the piece. It saves lots of time especially for those items that you use a lot of.

I stamped these images on my tag using Mother’s Day Bouquet & Spring Lilacs stamp sets. I stamped the bird using some distress ink to give a subtle feel to the tag.

Inspired by Stamping Everyday Greetings Stamp Set

For the inside of my card, I used a sentiment from the Everyday Greetings stamp set. The butterflies are from our Spring Lilacs set. I then added a strip of White Crochet Tape to the top of the card too.

Paper Pads: Spring Lilacs

Nestie Die: Fancy Labels 2
