Pumpkin Spice– For Mom

I have another card for Mother’s Day to share with you today.  

Although I always love October Afternoon’s paper collections, I especially love Woodland Park.   Since I had the papers sitting on my desk after making this card for the Pumpkin Spice blog hop, I decided to see what else I could create.   


2013-05-04  PSS Mom hex butterfly card WM


I created my chipboard letters by adhering kraft cardstock to a piece of cardboard from a cereal box before using alphabet dies to cut them out.   This is a cheap and easy way to have chipboard pieces that match any project.    You can see the Bazzill Basics card stock carried by ShopPumpkinSpice here.


You still have plenty of time to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day and join in the fun we had at the Pumpkin Spice blog.     Challenges are open until 6 pm Friday, May 10th.   Each challenge winner will receive a $20 GC to ShopPumpkinSpice.

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!

  • Inks:  None
  • Papers:  Bazzill Basics kraft, white, & red CS, October Afternoon Woodland Park 8x8 paper pack, Stampin’ Up Vellum, misc. cereal box
