SNEAK PEEKS (click link below to see full pics of rest of fronts and the decorated insides)
Card 1~My Grandma's card:
Card 2~My Ma's card
Card 3~My MIL's card:
Here is the rest of Card 1, for my grandma:
this is the front. flowers stamped in memento black from the SU! Elementary Elegance set. then I took my zig brushables markers (I have all 4 sets of EVERY color available!!!) and colored them onto an acrylic block. I took my aqua brush and used it as a watercolor brush with the colors and colored the image of the flowers. I can honestly say, these photos dont' do this card justice, I had to take the pic outside on a CLOUDY rainy day. the lighting in my hosue STINKS. but this card turned out SO beautiful!!
One I had the heat embossing done, I stamped another bird on white cardstock. in 3 different SU! colors. My inspiration for the humming bird came from the BioZine website, HERE. An interesting article about how the hummingbirds wing speed beats the speed of a fighter jet, VERY interesting!.
the green flowers are stamped from the Sizzix Framelits butterflies #3 set, and then the butterflies were stamped fromt hat same set and then cut out with the accompanying dies. I added a touch of stickles to their wings and then rolled their wings with my paint brush.
I stamped the flowers again, then hand cut them out and added brads and attached them with glue dots.
Card 3~MY MIL's card:
The plain color CS is all bazzill. the deco background is one that I HAND MADE with my SU! fifth avenue floral stamp set. I just used different colors of SU! ink and layered the stamps. the "love" is from the SU! Sale-a-bration catalog and it's called outlined occasions (this stamp set, sadly is no longer available, you missed out on this GREAT set if you didn't get it!) The "live laugh love" is a border stamp from Fiskars. I LOVE that stamp and I don't use it near enough... I ahve a new card in mind though!
Well, I hope you liked the cards!!! Be sure to go back to the homepage of my blog and look at the post below this one, it will have the other 3 mother's day cards I made! some beauties there you won't want to miss! :)
Thanks for looking!
Keep on Craftin' and please, be kind to one another!
