Mother Day Release Design Team Samples (Part 1)
Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit today. We have a brand new release of Mother's Day  at 25% off the retail price.

There are 22 dies in this release that includes 3 Mothers Day phrase dies. All the other dies could be used year round for a variety of occasions.  We have had a good response when we do a group post on a new release. It gives you the opportunity to see more card samples from the Design Team. So we are continuing that again this month.

There are 3 samples for today and on Tuesday we will post another set of 3 samples. Plus the design team will be featuring these dies in their posts over the next couple of weeks.

Card 1: This first sample is from Janja Albrecht. She used the Mother's Day Cupcake and Flowers for Mom dies to create her set of tags. These beautiful tags would be so perfect attached to your gift for Mom or you could also use these on your handmade card for a 3-D effect. And, they would be so easy to re-create for your own special project. She used the Mom phrase from the Cupcake die on both her tags.

Card 2: This next sample is from Lois Bak. She made this stunning easel card using the Bouquet of Tulips die and the Happy Mother's Day Phrase. She cut the phrase a couple of times for extra thickness. She is using it as her anchor to allow the card to stand for displaying.

She framed the tulips perfectly by using a stitched scallop circle die.

If you have never made an easel card before, here is a link to a tutorial. They are not difficult and what Mom wouldn't like to have a card like this displayed on her mantle on Mother's Day.
Card 3: The 3rd and final sample for today is one that I (Mary Marsh) created. I used the Mother's Day Cupcake + the Stitched Tulip & Daisies die to create a card for my Mother-in-Law.
The layout is from The Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge #695. I thought the 3 circles would be perfect to display the cupcake, the tulip and also a stamped sentiment.
Adding some heart background paper completes the whimsical look to let my "other" Mom know that I care.
I hope the samples shown today have sparked some ideas for a Mother's Day card or project. The new dies are all so beautiful and again they are on sale for a limited time.

There is also a sale going on today to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day. You can save up to 50% on some dies. Check it out here.
