2 of these cards are for mine and hubby's "surrogate mother" (our best friends mom, who has helped us in life when we needed it most--we've also known her so long and spent so much time with her, she's like another mama to us, LOL). one of the cards was from hubby and I and the other was for her 'real' daughter to give to her for mom's day.
I also had one card for a custom order from one of my very loyal customers and friend, Rhonda. :)
HERE ARE THE SNEAK PEEKS, CLICK THE LINK BELOW TO SEE THE REST OF PICS
Card 4~My 2nd mama's card (from hubby and I):
Card 5~ 2nd mama's card from her daughter:
Card 4~2nd mama's card from hubby and I: The horsey and mouse image is a large House Mouse rubber stamp. I LOVE the image. She likes "painted" horses and that is what i was trying to do here, make a brown and white patched painted horse, but to me, it just doesn't look like a "finished" picture, but she liked it so that's all that matters.
I colored the image with prisma colored pencils and blended with gamsol.
The sentiment on the outside is from SU! teeny tiny wishes and I cut it with the word window punch and then used the modern label punch to layer it. added some blue brads and a bit of stickles on them for some shimmer.
The wolf image is from SU!. I hand cut the circle around it and then layered it on a scalloped nestibility circle. I made some nice long squares to offset the circle adding white grosgrain ribbon to the bottom of them.
WARNING: using alcohol inks on your rubber or clear stamps will PERMANENTLY stain them!!!! I highly suggest pouring your AA's onto a scrap jar lid or something like that. something that is plastic or metal. if you are using a plstic lid, WORK FAST because teh plastic will soak up the AA!!!
Card 6~Custom Order for Rhonda's MIL:
the base of the card is white 110 lb (thick) georgia pacific cardstock. the pinkish purple strip is bazzill. for the background I used a few different stamps. I used a "mini" hero arts flower (top left corner), I used the leaves the from the SU! build a blossom set, I used 3 of the flowers from the SU! fifth avenue floral set and then I also used a flower from the "Just Chillin-Girl--Making Memories" set (that would be the flower stamped in teal in the TOP middle of the card)
Well, that is all of the Mother's day cards that I did! :) I was VERY tired by the time I was done. I got ALL 6 of these cards done over a 2 day period and thankfully, being mailed 3 days before mother's day, priority mail was on my side by being on time for 4 of the cards to make it across the country in time for mother's day. they would have been mailed out sooner, but honestly, I didn't get to do them til just a few days before because I was having some serious issues with my bipolar a week and a half before.
OHHHHHH YEAH, so anyways, I NEED YOUR HELP!!!! My friend Laura gave me this stamp set, but she didn't know who it was by or the name of it. I couldn't figure it out either. I did all types of google searches with different word combinations and justs couldn't figure it out. I THOUGHT it may be by basicgrey because of how the cover of the set is in "color" (and a few of my BG sets are like that), but I had NO luck finding it. If you know who this set is by, and the name of it (or just one or the other would do) please leave a comment and let me know!! thanks so much in advance! :) (you can click the pic to make it bigger if you need a better view). I just named it "mix and match" because it has several different pieces for butterflies, a few different flower pieces and some borders as well.
Anyhow, thanks for stopping by to see my cards! I appreciate you looking. I'd appreciate comments too! :)
Keep on Craftin' and please, be kind to one another!
