mother's day cards

mothers day cards!

i also entered these on the whimsy challenge blog.  whimsy stamps are one of my favorite companies :)

ive been so inspired here lately, and ive made some really great mothers day cards.  i hope you like them and they inspire you as well!

this is my first one that i made, its an envelope card and the die cut in the middle pulls out and thats where you write your note.  the stamp is a wee digi stamp, from whimsy stamps.

this is the next one that i made i was inspired after going to hobby lobby and seeing some of the beautiful white bird houses that they and i used the two birds digi from wee stamps.  this is an easel card and i just added a triangle for the roof and plenty of embellishments. 

 heres the next one i did.  i used another wee stamp digi, i didn't like the patches on her pants so i transferred the design and also took out so many of the fly away designs that were on it too. 
 i added lace that i inked in between the die and middle circle.  as well as inking the beaded spellbinders die with Martha Stewart pink rose spray stamp pad.
  i added rolled ribbon roses, as well as some stamped doodle roses.

this card i wanted it to look like a vintage quilt.  i added quarter square triangles under the beaded spellbinders dies,  and put half circle in the middle of the dies. 

here the card is open and you can really see the effect of the pieces.  lots of inking adds to the vintage feel of this card.  and plenty of miss matching patterns for a "make do" look.

this is a digi stamp from milk and coffee.

this is one of my favorites!  this is another stamp from wee stamps.  the large heart is also a stamp that i got from a crafting garage sale at my local stamp store.  this pink rose frame is vintage wrapping paper.
the sheet of music paper is inked on the outside with pink, and i used my BG10 copic marker on the inside of the rose frame and dry brushed white on the inside of the frame to soften the black music notes. 

after softening the music notes, the beautiful little girl really stands out
