Pals Paper Arts 203 & Happy Mother’s Day!

Posted on

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you wonderful mothers out there! Where would we be without you? In big trouble and if the truth be told not here at all! I do have a Mother’s Day card for you today but it’s not mine. I had a very nice relaxing day yesterday. I got my haircut and then crafted for a bit. I watched some TV and then Andrew stopped by to make his mom a Mother’s Day card. I think he did a great job! He used the Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers and even did some fussy cutting! I have the pictures to prove it too! Here he is coloring…

And here he is fussy cutting…

Andrew Fussy Cutting

The funny thing is I asked him if he wanted a stamp that had a Framelit and he said yes. After he cut them out he didn’t like the white around the flower so he ended up cutting them out anyway. He did an awesome job coloring and cutting. He did some heat embossing too. And here is the card that he made for his mom…

I think he did a great job! I’m sure that she will love it! And the flowers are just amazing! You’ll have to let us know what you think! ๐Ÿ™‚

Now off to my card which is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge…

PPA 203

When I see theses colors I think of fall but I decided that if your mom liked the colors my card might even make a good Mother’s Day card! LOL! I needed a collage style card. There areย a lot of goodies on it so be warned! The base of the card is Cajun Craze Card Stock. I adhered one of the Tea Lace paper Doilies in the right corner for a little background. Next up is a piece of Very Vanilla that I cut the top edge of with the File Tabs Edgelits Dies. I stamped the greeting from the Countless Sayings 1 & 2 Photopolymer Stamp Sets in Night of Navy. In the lower right is a piece of Night of Navy that I cut out with the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die and then trimmed some of it away. The angled strip of Cajun Craze is embossed with the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and on top of it are two tickets from the That’s the Ticket Stamp Set. They are stamped in Night of Navy and punched out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch. Above that is a piece of Night of Navy thatย I cut out with one of the elements from the Circle Card Thinlits Dies. The xoxo is from the same and is cut out from a piece of Gold Foil Sheet. My tag is a piece of Night of Navy thatย I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and the Project Life Corner Rounder on. I also Paper-Pierced around the edge with the Eclectic Paper-Piercing Pack*. A piece of Natural 5/8″ Chevron Ribbon tied with some White Bakers Twine goes through the top. My flowers are from the Secret Garden Stamp Set and are stamped in Cajun Craze on Cajun Craze. I used the Gold Stampin’ Dazzle Marker to make the centers. Last up is a Regals Designer Button adhered with the new Fast Fix Adhesive. Like I said there is a lot but I think that it all works quite well together. I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge and also Andrew’s Mother’s Day Card. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope that you all have a great Sunday and a wonderful Mother’s Day! ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Hi Justin,
    Andrew did a great job on his card! I love that he fussy cut after the framelit cut! The white always bothers me, sometimes I trim it off but most times not…
    I love your card! I love the collage style of stamping and this is definitely collage! Great job!
    We are having such beautiful weather here. Perfect day to be outdoors!
    I hope your Sunday is a good one!
    Thanks for sharing yours and Andrews talent with us!!

    • Yeah! Thanks Bobbi! I keep telling him! It really was the very first time he had used alcohol markers! I was pretty impressed too! I hope that you had a great day! ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Good Evening Justin!!

    It was indeed gorgeous today!!! I couldn’t stand being inside at all today, not to make cards or do hardly anything at all LOL!!! I ate outside, gardened for a bit, and even painted my nails outside with my daughter too!!!

    So Andrew, when are you doing a video for your tips with the Blendabilities??!!! Satellite Lane could do the intro, background, and closing music!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ What a stunning card; I have no doubt your mother loved it, what a lucky lady!!!

    And Justin, you are the King of collage cards!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ You remind me that I need to make more tags and use my lacey tea doilies more often!!

    I hope you both took advantage of the awesome Spring weather we are FINALLY having!!!

    Hugs, Laurie

    • Hello Laurie!
      I too needed to be outside! It really was the perfect day weather wise! LOL! I look forward to his comment about the video! LOL! That is actually a great idea with the music! Thank you very much! I do love the collage style, it’s fun to get all of the different stuff to look like it somewhat belongs together! I actually do use the doilies, they are a great quick accent! I definitely took advantage of the weather and loved every second of it! XO ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Justin, your PPA card is over the top! I love all the details, and you’ve made the colors really pop! Both cards are gorgeous! Thank you so much for joining us this week at Pals Paper Arts!!

  19. I loved the sneak peak at your stamp studio as well as the project. Any chance we could get a full view of your studio sometime? I know you are a good photographer as I have been enjoying your photo tour of NYC. Thanks in advance if you decide to do this challenge ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Thank you!! LOL! I don’t know if you need to see all of the chaos in the rest of the stamp area! LOL! I’ll straighten it up a bit and then take some pictures. I’m so glad that you enjoy the NYC Pics. It reminds me that I haven’t been there in a while and I need to go back, I miss it! Thank you for stopping by! ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. First of all, I love your collage style card, Justin. You did a great job adding just the right amount of “stuff”. However, Andrew’s card absolutely blows me away! I LOVE it! Thanks for playing with the Pals this week ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you Ann! They are my favorite style of cards to make! I will let Andrew know how much you like his card! He will be very happy! Hugs! Have a great week! ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. I love all the elements in your card! There’s just so much to look at and take in. I think my favorite part is the gold xoxo – it’s unexpected, and perfect!

  22. You both did a great job!! I’m sure you brought tears to your mother’s eyes Andrew! We moms all love it when our children take time to give of themselves to make us happy!!
