You may have arrived here from Mindy Backes blog. Weren't her projects so appropriate for our theme this month? Once you view my projects, I will direct you to the next stop at the end of my post.
I have 2 sets of coordinating projects for you tonight. I created matching tags for both cards using the same products. These projects were so much fun! I plan on using both of these sets for my parents for Mother's Day and Father's Day:
Let's start with the "Gentlemen" portion of our theme:
The Bear Hugs stamp set and coordinating and Bear Hugs Framelits Dies have been one of my favorite bundles. I love how you can stamp the bear, cut him out with the framelits and then flip him over and stamp him on the reverse side using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig. In doing so, you can fold his little arms over like I did here and have the stamped image show on both sides:
The Schoolhouse Designer Paper has a nice sheet of the Tangerine Tango Geometric design that I used on one of my layers along with the White Corrugated Paper. Did you notice the stenciling on the card base? I used the Happy Patterns Decorative Masks and my sponges to add Marina Mist Ink. So quick & easy.
Next up is my "Ladies" projects:
For these two projects I used the Boho Chic Embossing Folder on the white layers and I created a window for the sentiment to peek through on the card. The stamped images were all stamped with the Birthday Blooms stamp set, colored with a Blender Pen and my ink pads and hand-cut. I added the Gold Wink of Stella to all of the images and look at all of those Pearl Jewels that I used! Love it!
