For My Wonderful Mother--PP287

March 20, 2016

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

This week the multi talented Jaydee is our hostess.  With the beginning of Spring upon us, the challenge this week is create a Clean and Simple Spring card.  

It is Jaydee's birthday today!  I want to wish her a very special day filled with love and happiness!  

My card was so simple to create.  The base card is white.  The next layer is Rose Red.  The top white layer was cut with a die in my stash.  This stamp is from Stampin' Up!--Picture Perfect.   The sentiment was stamped in Rose Red.  My mother absolutely loves hummingbirds and I know Jaydee is a huge lover of all things in nature.  

So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Please leave a message!  I love to hear from you!  


Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirations from our design team and I hope that you will play along with our challenge this week.

  1. So happy to see this stamp set used for the REAL color of the Hummingbird! I have seen so many blue ones that I thought I missed the species! Thank you for sharing. This card is gorgeous!

  2. This is so pretty.....your mother will love it! Am so glad you got to spend time with her recently! Loving the Rose Red.....I don't use that color enough!

  3. Clean, simple and ever so pretty Claire - this bird looks just like the real thing! I love the large scallop frame too; I'm sure your Mum will appreciate this card.

  4. WHat a perfect CAS springy creation this is! I can't wait for my own hummers to return!

  5. Nice CAS card! That hummingbird looks real. I need to ink it up soon, since I have the stamp set. We have a feeder right outside our front door and the hummers aren't shy even when we are standing under it.

  6. Chirping birds are always a sure sign of spring, but I've only ever been fortunate enough to see a hummingbird in my garden once ever. They are magnificent little birds so I can see why your mother loves them, as she will your beautiful card, Claire!

  7. Humming birds are one of God's most amazing creations!
    Love your beautiful card Claire!

  8. A gorgeous use of this stamp, Claire! Rose Red is perfect for this little guy and I love the clean layout. Your mother will love it!

  9. Beautiful spring card!I LOVE to watch humming birds!
