Hey friends! I’m so happy to be a part of the new Simon Says Stamp Fluttering By Blog Hop! We have so much crafty goodness in the hop today and I’m excited to share my card. Hopefully you have arrived here from the amazing Kristina Werner’s blog! If you are new to my blog, I welcome you warmly. Shall we begin?

Today’s card features my new Love You Mama stamps and coordinating dies (and mom, please act surprised when you get this card, okay?)

Just some simple stamping and a bit of Zig Clean color and Distress Oxides to create this happy, spring-y card.

Here’s a video showing you how I created the card!

Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $25 coupon to every stop on this hop. Just leave a comment on this post and we’ll be picking the winners over the weekend and post them next week on the Simon blog.

    This is such a pretty card Cathy, I love the colour of the GinaK card base, really pretty.

    Just beautiful! We call our mothers mama here in the south so it’s awesome to have a stamp that actually says “mama” love it!!

    Love the colors on your cards!
    Not trying to sound weird but the teacher in me comes out wondering why the Mama stamps are spelled Mana. The lowercase m in cursive is three humps not two. I would not be able to get past that to buy this stamp set.

    Those flowers look like they are blowing in the breeze. I wasnโ€™t so impressed until you colored them and then WOW they came alive. Great card.

    Great card and video! Also a truly lovely stamp set. I appreciate your inexperience (although to look at your work no one would believe it). It makes me feel better as a less experienced card maker.

  38. #192

    Having a simple card idea which looks like a lot of effort has gone into it is perfect when you have to make one in a hurry. This card will be one to fall back on.

    Heather DePasquale

    Wow! Just love your bright card. The lines, coloring, embellishments… All so perfect! Thanks to all!

    Your card is great and your video made me feel more confident knowing other people have little bloopers while making cards. Keep making your amusing videos, I loved it.

    Lovely and sweet card. Love all the white space…and those droplets – cool! Now they’re on my wish list.

    Cathy, this is such a beautiful card! The color palette is gorgeous and I always love your fun wit and humor during the video, you are so fun to watch I always laugh!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Key lime paper *WILL* change the world. Well, maybe just the paper crafting world, but that’s all that matters, right?!? And I too wish I had one of Jennifer McGuire’s ET fingers to use the jewel picker, and just a 10th of the talent she has in that finger! I’d love to see the garbage can in her craft room, cause I’m betting its not full of mistakes and failed attempts like the rest of us! Probably just scraps and maybe gum wrappers. I love how your card turned out though!!! Nailed it, for sure ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love the sentiments on this stamp set. The images arenโ€™t beautiful and feel like they are easy to color too like you did on your card.

    Virginia Perez

    Love this card and oh yes you are right about the dauber. It works better for me to have more color circular control.

    Lynn C.

    Loved your card. It may be simple but the colors are vibrant and fun to see. I am starting to like the Zigs so may have to invest in some of them. Thank you for sharing.

    I adore your card! The new stamp set you used is so cute. And donโ€™t worry I donโ€™t know that anyone is as good with a jewel picker than Jennifer.

    Lovely card and wonderful new stamp set! I love the whimsical design! Thank you for the inspiration and fun video.

    I love cards that use a small focal point on multiple matted cards
    as i have so many small stamps i could never figure out a use for.
    The spring colors here are beautiful.

    Angela R.

    Love the green colors that you used on the card. It turned out great I am sure your mom will love it.

    Liz Ford

    Hello! I love the clean and fresh look of your card. The colors really pop! I thank you for showing me that I do not have to use the entire front of the card up, to give someone a lovely card. The focal point keeps my eye moving. Well done!
    Your Mom will be surprised when she gets this; I bet it is even more spectacular in person.

    Hi Cathy,
    I love this card, the colours make me happy and I think it’s time for me to invest in some Zig Markers, they do look like fun to create with. Thanks for the inspiration.
    Take care

    Aah lovely! Been following you from the days of SS and Two Peas where I believe you recommended a specific paper for printing b&w photos…I digress…this is so fresh and just pops off the page! Thanks for sharing!

    FINALY!! Someone who is not worred about things being perfect!!! This card so sooo PRETTY!! THANKS FOR SHARING & GOD BLESS!??

  59. #316

    Cathy, this card is so simple, yet so beautiful!! I love that little circle of green ink in the middle. It makes the sentiment and the flowers really stand out! Thanks so much for making a video show us how you created this lovely card!

  60. #317

    Cathy, this card is simply delightful. Must add that I thoroughly enjoyed your video–not just as a tutorial (which was so helpful) but your running commentary about crafting experiences–especially toward the end. Thanks for sharing it all!

    The colors are stunning and I love the water drops. Also love your honesty how you too deal with glitches.

  62. #329

    “Cheery, colorful, and simple” you certainly NAILED it! It’s is a cute, precious card. Such a lovely way to enhance the stamped images with the water color style.

    It won’t matter if it isn’t a surprise for your mom…she’ll love it because you made it and because it is beautiful!

    Cynthia Koop

    Simply beautiful. The Gina K cardstock is really bright and pretty. I think that is my favorite color (for now)!

  65. #354

    I love watching your videos and seeing what makes you happy. It reminds me why I craft: it makes me happy! Thanks for showing us what your vision was when you made this set. (And it’s good to know that it never gets any easier to keep presents secret from one’s mama.)

    Gail Plaskiewicz

    I love your card! I just wish I had a die cutter so I could replicate it. I love that green color you used on Love You Mama and just on that part. I would never think to do that. That is so clever! I am in love with those clear droplets! I have some of those and I think they are so cool! When you want something to look like real water droplets those are the things to use. I have to use mine more. Thank you for showing us your pretty card and for giving us the chance to win something.

    The little fluttering butterfly is so
    pretty along the flowers. Love
    this delicate card.

    Oh, Cathy… I loved it when you dropped your glossy accents! I laughed and laughed. So happy you left that in – shows that we’re all human ๐Ÿ™‚ Your card is so cute, so clean, so Cathy.
