Mother's Day Creations

I can't believe that I had time to create Mother's Day cards for my mom and my MIL since this will be my first Mother's Day. Little Liam (arrived on 4/3/07) has been keeping mommy very busy lately. I never thought that I would be able to get any stamping done. Luckily, I was able to slip away while he took a nice, long nap over the weekend. :)

I have fallen in love with a few gorgeous Stampendous stamps. I purchased poppies, fresh bloom, ruffled bloom and ruffled butterfly. (Thank goodness for my eBay sales or I would be spending WAY too much money...recycling is a good thing!) I also purchased the Paper Salon Tailored Tin Mother's Day set at Archiver's, which has TONS of cute floral stamps along with greetings and a vase.



Poppies

The ruby red card base was stamped with the Fresh Bloom (Stampendous) stamp and parts of the flower colored in with a gold Stardust gel pen, then a piece of gold cardstock dry embossed with the Cuttlebug Divine Swirls folder and adhered to the ruby red card base. The poppies stamp was stamped on a white panel, colored with watercolor crayons, highlighted with the gold gel pen, sponged the edges with regal rose ink, stamped "my mom" (SU) in black and attached black ric rac.



Stylized Flowers

A celery panel was dry embossed with the Cuttlebug stylized flowers embossing folder, then all of the flowers traced with a glue pen and covered with dazzling diamonds glitter. Using the Paper Salon Mother's Day stamp set, I stamped "Happy Mother's Day" and a flower on the scalloped oval. The flower was colored with Cameo Coral and So Saffron markers. The scalloped oval edges were sponged in celery and dotted with a silver Stardust gel pen. A floral background was stamped on white CS in Cameo Coral, then the vase stamp was stamped in black onto the background and cut out. A small flower was stamped in cameo coral and a yellow brad placed in the center and attached to a glittered flower. The vase was adhered below the flower on the stem. Black gingham ribbon was wrapped at the top of the celery panel. The celery panel was attached to the vanilla card base and the edges of both were sponged in celery ink.
