Welcome to the Pals’ April  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we love to put our ”Families First”! Our Design Team created beautiful projects to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I’m back, and I will be giving you step-by step, photo instructions, rather than continuing a video. 

Some of my favorite cards are the ones I make with the recipient in mind. This one is for my daughter for Mother’s Day.

Sheet Music Birds


STEP by STEP Instructions

Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 4″ X 5 1/4″. Trim a section of Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut DSP, place over the white cardstock, creating a stencil. Hold it in place with your hand (or, fasten with removable tape) and apply Pineapple Punch ink with a Sponge Dauber. Press harder, and lighter, to cause variation in tone.

Use a Rectangle Stitched die to cut to size.

Glue to a Thick Whisper White, 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ card base.

Stamp a piece of 6″ X 6″ Whisper White cardstock with the Sheet Music background stamp in Black ink. Mine is wood mounted, and I find it gives the best impression, if I ink the stamp with it laying flat, and place the paper on top of it. Use a larger than needed piece of cardstock, then cut to size with a Rectangle Stitched die.

Using a die from the Botanical Tags die set, cut two branches from Granny Apple Green cardstock. Glue the ends in the middle, leaving the border ends free.

Place the Sheet Music, on dimensionals, on top of the branches. 

Stamp the sentiment, “Happy Mother’s Day,” from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, and cut with the Classic Label Punch.

Three, Mini-Stampin’ Dimensionals, fit nicely on the back of the sentiment, then place it on the card front.

Use the birds from a Botanical tags die to make one bird in Pineapple Punch cardstock, and one in Powder Pink, so you’ll have a mama and baby bird. Apply tiny strips of dimensionals, and place on the sheet music.

Last, but not least, add a few Iridescent Sequins for a touch of sparkle. Apply a tiny dot of glue where you want the sequins, place the sequins on top, and let dry.


You’ll find the supplies for my completed Mother’s Day card in my Product List below. Thanks so much for hopping my way!
