In the blink of an eye half the year has almost past us!
Lots of exciting things going on for our business! This year ROC Paper Scissors has signed contract with Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia and is now part of the Martha Stewart American Made Market on E-bay!
Handpicked by Martha and the team at Martha Stewart Living, the American Made Market spotlights and celebrates the American makers, products and personal stories that have inspired them.
I am so honored to have been asked to join this Market and have an opportunity to come into the homes of 66 million subscribers!
Stay tuned for all kinds of emails, social media, and editorial integration on the Martha Stewart websites and in their magazines that they will implement to highlight and celebrate us, as an American Maker!!!
I feel JUST as honored for the past couple of years be a guest on Daytime TV Show hosted by Jerry Penacoli and Cyndi Edwards. This time my “Card Making Alumni” ( Jerry and Cyndi) were putting together a Mother’s Day version of a card I made for the Valentines Day of 2012 on The Martha Stewart Show. It has had such a great response I figured…why not “Spring” it up! So,with out further delay here is the step by step for making this sweet little card for all the special mom’s in your life .
These materials below are pretty much what you are going to need.I used products from Martha Stewart Crafts here and on the show:
For Jerry’s card instead of using the coral colors I went with a blue hue, just use whichever color is your mom’s favorite!
1- To get the template for the birdhouse simply go to this link
Then, simply use a 1″ circle punch to make the opening for the birdhouse.
2- Punch our small little hearts in an ombre pattern ( yes I love to work ombre in my designs!). You are going to use these to decorate your birdhouse.
3- This is how we glued the hearts on the birdhouse.
4- Attach a aproximately 2 inch square , with foam dots to give the birdhouse the back wall you can see through the hole.
5- Make your flower or use a pre-made store bought one.
6-Punch your leaves.
7- Make the perch and remember to elevate it with a foam adhesive for additional dimension:
8- Time to assemble your card. Using a glue stick attach the leaves and the flower on and beside the perch.
9- Lastly, adhere your bird on the perch. I used these sweet bird stickers from Martha Stewart crafts.
That is it! Any questions always feel free to leave a comment. I’ll gladly answer any question you may have.

Lastly, just want to wish each and every sweet mom out there a very Happy Mother’s Day !
