Stampin’ Pretty Pals April Blog Hop!

Stampin up pretty broadsheet alphabet mothers day card
Welcome to the April PALS BLOG HOP!  This month, we're featuring Wonderful Wedding and Mother's Day projects for your inspiration!  Peruse the tips and details for my Mother's Day project–then keep on hopping to ten more stops!  The complete Stampin' Pretty Pals Hop Line-Up! is below!


  • Stampin' up! broadsheet alphabet mother's day Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper defines the style and colors of this card.  It's available as a  part of the Stampin' Up! Spring Is Blossoming Promotion. 
  • The button flower (courtesy of the  Boho Blossom Punch) multi-tasks as an "O" in "MOM." 
  • Mini Glue Dots keep the button in place.
  • Tying a pretty knot used to be a challenge for me until I learned to hold the right side steady and pull with the left.  Check out my Tying a Pretty Knot Video for a visual explanation.
