April Play Day Cards

For our April Play Day, we made cards for the ladies in our lives, Mothers, Sisters, and Friends!  Here are our projects:


This card was greatly inspired by a beautiful card by abstampin on Splitcoast Stampers.  My recipe is:

STAMPS:  Heard from the Heart, On Your Birthday
PAPER:  So Saffron, Melon Mambo, Very Vanilla, Razzleberry Lemonade DS Paper
INK:  Melon Mambo
ACCESSORIES:  Build-a-Brad, Scallop Edge Punch, Sticky Strip, Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Big Shot, 1/2" and 1-1/4" Circle Punches


This Post-it-Note Holder is a perfect little gift for that special friend, Mother or Sister!

STAMPS:  Tiny Tags
PAPER:  Tea Party DS Paper, Whisper White Cardstock
INK:  Pretty in Pink
ACCESSORIES:  Coaster, Post-it Note Pad, Binder Clip, Corner Rounder Punch, Tombo Mono Multi Liquid Glue, Medium Jewelry Tag Punch, 1/16" Circle Punch, Linen Thread, Very Vanilla 1/4" Grograin Ribbon


Project Three was a Swing or Flip Flop Card, which we made as a Mother's Day Card.  I really liked the way that this project turned out!  The flowers were stamped twice, watercolored, cut out, and popped up with dimensionals.  Here is the other side of it:

I think the double sided card is extra neat, and I love the way that it stands up!  I followed the excellent tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers to make this card.  My recipe for this card is:
