Sweet sentiments for Mom

by Teresa Horner | April 26, 2016

Hi Ruby Rock-it fans it's Teresa here today and i am sharing lots of cards that i did for Mother's day coming up next month.  I used lots of papers from all the lines for this post so grab a cup of something and enjoy!

My first card is my favorite and i layered lots of gorgeous papers to do it.  The first layer is RR newest Foiled Hearts and Stripes paper.  I used the silver one on it and also the yellow hearts from one of the other sides.  And the yellows went perfectly with the Getting Hitched line of papers.  The beautiful yellow, white and silver combinations was perfect.  And to make the title i used some of the tiny words in our silver glitter letters and the tiny alpha words.  Love, love, love this one....

The wooden die cut is one i got from the local hobby store and chalked it white but you could use a die or anything decorative to make the design the way you wanted to on the cards you make.

I really love this one too.  We have a beautiful pink papers called and it went great with the little pink dots that i wanted to use. To start it I cut pieces for the backround first and glued them all down on a burgundy card stock that matched it.  I also had a little die that i cut out the birdcage and then layered lots of pretty flowers in pink and white to create the cluster that you see.  The green leaves i also cut from a die and filled in the spaces to make it look nice and full.  And lastly i added the little words that i did on the computer.  You could do anything this way and that way your card would say exactly what you needed it to for that special mom or aunt or someone in your life.
This one i also used papers from the Getting Hitched line and the Gold Foiled Stripes and Hearts papers.  I wanted something very fancy and bright to maybe give money or a gift card in so this is what i came up with.  It looks very classy and the Bella Bling Flower was the perfect touch on the top for it.

The next 2 cards i did with the new "Faded Empire" collection of papers.  For the top one i layered on a piece of the printed pink paper onto a kraft card and then i used one of the pretty tags that come already done and just cut it out and matted it to put on the top.  It's a gorgeous design and sometimes you want to say something special and i think this would do quit well for that.  

This one i had lots of fun with and decided to go with making an easel card.  The top is also one of the cards from the papers and i cut that out and layered it on beautiful printed papers in pinks and burgundy and only had to add a pretty ribbon and the rose die cut piece from the set to finish it.
And my last card I used the Blossom Pink Foiled Stripe and added white cardstock and the pretty Bella Pink Bling flower to make it really shine.  This one i had to cut off the ends to make it fit but 
it's a good thing to remember so that you can use some of your stash in other ways.  The stamp in the center is from our Wedding Clear Stamp set and it fit perfect inside the circle and was the best sentiment i could think of to give to your mum!
Thanks so much for stopping over for a little Mother's Day inspiration and i 
hope that you make your mum something really nice to make her feel special this year!
