Hello, It’s the first of May, say what, and time for the next Hues of Colors at Color Hues. We have a bright and fun color pairing that was selected by DT member Hannelie that I think you are going to love. I don’t enjoy making Mother’s Day cards being my mom has been gone for 26 years, but at the request of the store I needed to make a few. I saw this fabulous card over on Pinterest and it certainly sparked my inspiration, and how can you go wrong with the darling Bear from Ellen Hutson.
Before I cut out the mom die-cut, I used the challenge colors to make some striped paper. The bottom of the card to ground Mr. Bear is just DSP and a black strip of paper. I have three layers under the bear to give the card some depth.
Card Details: Bear Ware- Ellen Hutson, pot and flowers are Sizzix-Garden Shed, i love you is an oldie but goodie from Verve, and the MOM is from Simon Says Stamps.
Now head on over to Color Hues and check out my wonderful teammate’s cards along with our guest Kristin.
Take care and happy creating, Nanc’

What a great way to incorporate the Color Hues combination! I’m filing that way for the future! I love that bear who sees very little love from me–need to change that. I totally understand about the Mother’s Day cards.

I love your “homemade” striped and die cut MOM on your card Nancy…what a great idea to make your own! And Michele has made me fall in LOVE with that sweet bear over and over again, and now I’ve fallen in love again! FABULOUS card my friend!! Hugs. :0)

Just super cute, Nancy! Like Karen, I have not given that darling bear any love in a long time, so I’m very inspired by your use on this sweet Mother’s Day card!
