Hey there! It’s been a few days…I’ve been busy packing up my apartment and staying at my boyfriend’s house, which soon I will be doing for an entire month before we move into the new place.
I made a few Mother’s Day cards earlier this week but haven’t had the time to post them yet. So I figured I would share them with you now. You’ll have to forgive me, I may not be able to list all of the supplies since I’m not home & in my craft room at the moment, but I will do my best from memory (and thank goodness for google!)
So, a lady my boyfriend works with saw a few photos of some cards I made for my Mom and Grammy for Mother’s Day and she told him to let me know that she wanted to buy a few cards from me for Mother’s day. I’ve met her a few times and I know she has two sons so I thought this would be a really cute card for them to give to their Grandmother. I did some very simple coloring with copic markers using the Lawn Fawn Love ‘n Breakfast stamp set and the patterned paper is from Basic Grey Paper Cottage 6×6 paper pad. I also used the SSS Small Folded Banners die. On the inside of the card it reads ‘Happy Mother’s Day’
She also purchased two other cards from me, one to give to her mother and one to give to her boyfriend’s mother. This card, I used a background stamp that I believe is from Hero Arts and clear heat embossed it on some white card stock. I then used distress inks to blend the background with (I think) Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn. When I was happy with the way it looked I I set it aside and used some scrap white card stock I had lying around to once again blend using the same colors and cut out some hearts using the SSS Mini Hearts Set die. I cut a strip of vellum and white heat embossed the sentiment ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ from (I think) a Hero Art’s stamp set. (I can’t remember) I then used some clear dimensional adhesive for the little hearts & some glossy accents
The 3rd card she purchased was this sweet little daisy card. I just hand blended the background with some distress ink (I’m pretty sure the colors I used were spun sugar, picked raspberry & spiced marmalade) I used a sticker I’ve had in my stash for AGES, and white heat embossed the same Happy Mother’s Day sentiment as all of the other cards.
Now this card my own Mother bought (I swear I told her I’d just give it to her lol) for my Grammy. I just love this card. The colors are so beautiful and match so well together. All the paper is from the same 6×6 paper pad but I don’t know the name of it at the moment. I love how the ‘o’ in mom is made up of flowers that also match the paper (coincidentally) I used the ‘You’ die and stamp set from SSS (I don’t know the true name, sorry!)
This card, I made for my Grammy…& I can’t wait for her to get it in the mail. I know she’ll love it. I used distress inks to blend the background and used a sticker from a sheet I’ve had for a while now. I can’t get enough of that beautiful cherry blossom branch! I white heat embossed the same Mother’s Day Sentiment and scattered a few pearls along the card to tie in the pearls that are on some of the flowers.
This is the card I made for my own Mom. It reminds me of a polaroid. I clear heat embossed the background (again I’m not sure what the background stamp is but I believe it is from Hero Arts) and blended with distress inks (I think the colors I used were picked raspberry and peacock feathers) I used the same Happy Mother’s day sentiment as the other cards, but this time I used Hero Arts Tide Pool or it may have been Soft Pool shadow ink, definitely one of those two! 😛
So, I have those posted but I think I’ll take a break for now and leave it at that. I have some more cards to share but I’ll be back later to update again. Hope everyone had a nice weekend! ❤
