Mother’s Day Cards: Craftie Cafe


Hello Everyone, I have another Mother’s Day for you all. Today’s is an extra special one as I love love love this background die with embossing elements to it from Memory Box.

I layered some distress inks by applying heat with my heat gun in between each layers. This adds texture and depth to the layered distress inks. The trick is to make sure to use water colour cardstock so it soaks up the ink without pilling.  If you would like to see this card made click on the your tube video below – 


Here are some other colour combination which also showcase the background die.


Happy Paper Crafting Peeps. Hugs Jo

Mother’s Day Card


Hello Paper Crafting Peeps and welcome to today’s blog post. I have just fallen in love with this Memory Box “Hovering Butterfly Frame”.  I have kept this card simple  using the Memento Luxe Lilac Posies pigment ink as the pop of colour for this card.

I first dry embossed the frame using the embossing mat through my bigshot on the card front side folding base.  This just left an embossed outline. With a separate piece of white cardstock I die cut and embossed the frame which I foam mounted directly on the top of the card creating a 2nd layer on the card front.

I have used the Love Mom stampset from Wplus9 with the Memento Luxe Ink.

To finish embellishing the card I used droplets from pretty pink posh in various sizes.


Hope you enjoyed today’s card creation. Paper crafting Hugs Jo

Inspired By Stamping – Mother’s Day Card

Hi paper crafters, today’s easel card is for Mother’s Day.
I used the marker direct to stamp technique. 
I coloured in the flower image from Ëaster Lily stampset with water soluble markers then stamped on watercolour cardstock. I then used my aqua brush and brushed along the stamped image picking up the ink and spreading it along the image.
The watercoloured cardstock has been placed on soft sky cardstock which i have distressed the edges and placed on a doily and lace.

To keep the easel in a stand right position mounted at sentiment on foam squared and placed a flower on either side.
The sentiment is from “Mother’s Day Bouquet”
Inspired By Stamping have a beautiful paper collection and today I have used the Vintage Floral Paper Pad.

Cascading Card

Cascading Card with Belly 


This commissioned card was requested from a friend of mine to give to a relative who loves simple but elegant cards. This is the first time I made a cascading card, it took some planning ahead to make sure I get the cuts and scoring right. Overall I think it turned out great and was please with my first attempt. Hope you like Angela? and look forward to feedback from your Auntie.

Happy Mothers Day

I made this card in honor of my mother who loves Red! My Mother passed away a couple of years ago with pancreatic cancer and there is not one day that I don’t miss her. When I think of my mum I think of RED, her laugh and her FOOD! She was the best Asian cook and I feel blessed to have had spent the time that I did with her. Happy Mother’s Day Mum and to all the Mother’s out there!
