It’s time to create a card filled with love and appreciation for your mother, mother-in-law, mother of your grandkids, or someone who has been like a mother to you. Here are some cards we are selling at Brushstrokes and Blessings at the West Shore Farmers Mkt in Lemoyne, PA. You can copy some ideas and purchase the materials to make them at stampexpressstore.com.
All three used JustRite stamps. Flowers just seem to be in season. We colored with Copic markers, cut out with Spellbinders Nestabilities and embellished with Morex ribbon and Fancy Pants designer paper. The dew drops were purchased at Michaels in the floral section and then colored with Copics.
Happy Mothers Day!

These Sarah Kay designs from Stampavie are just the best for coloring. They give you a vintage look and can be used for any occasion. I used the Copic markers on all and then varied the layering and embellishments.
Designer paper is Basic Grey, cardstock Stamp Express, embellishments from my stash. The scallopped oval is Nestabilities and the lace doily from the dollar store.
Try stamping the same stamp several times and color each differently. They give you a totally new look each time. Challenge yourself to see how many varied cards you can make with the same stamp. It’s FUN!

Here they are! These are the most fun to color and make into any occassion cards. Bernadette admiring flowers is colored with Copic markers. The image is double layered to bring out the colors in the picture. Then the layers are added to the card with some designer paper and accented with a lace punch by Martha Stewart. Top it off with flowers that were colored with Copic markers and a saying from Hero Arts. You could send this as a thinking of you card, birthday, get well, or anything.
The bird on dogwood could also be used for anything. We used an Inkadinkadoo saying for a birthday. Again we colored with Copic markers, double layered, added designer paper from BoBunny and labels diecut from Spellbinders. Cut the labels in half and glue each half to the ends of the layered image. The words are on a punched out piece from Stampin’ Up.
Madeline saying “hello” uses all the same products plus the little round crystals for dew drops. Purchase them in the floral section of your big box craft store and color them with the Copic markers. Attach with glue dots.
