Happy Mother's Day


Hi everyone, just wanted to wish all the Mum's a special day.
Thought I would share the cards I sent to the two Mum's in my life.
The first card I sent off to my Mum.  Normally, Mum is just down the road but at this moment my parents are visiting my sister.  Mum is always here for me and is a wonderful inspiration in my crafting.  Mum loves Fuchsias so decided to use this wonderful Digi Stamp from Ruth over at A Passion For Stamps.  I coloured the image with my Copic Pens. The card started with Stampin Up Concord Crush then a layer of Bazzill Design Paper - Jay Bird Street.   I ran a couple strips of cardstock through my Victoria embossing folder.  The butterfly border was created with one of my new Edgeabilities.  The sentiment is computer generated. 


This card I sent off to my caring Mother in Law.  We don't see each other often, once every couple of years but Facebook has a wonderful way of keeping people close.
I started with some Yellow Textured cardstock.  The design paper is from Bazzill - Jay Bird Street
The wonderful border I created with the Mix and Match Edgeabilities.  Yes, I now have 'Inserts' and 'Edges'.  If you are planning on buying these be sure to read what is actually in the packet and don't get caught like me with just the 'Inserts' because they look so pretty.  You need the packets with 'Edges' too.  Some packets come with both.  This wonderful Digi Stamp was drawn by the talented Mandy over at Blue Edge Crafts.  One day when she has a little more time I know she has plans to share some of her images.  I coloured this Pansy image with my Copic Pens.  The sentiment is computer generated.

Happy Mother's Day.

  2. Two lovely cards. I like the colour matching on them and the embossing on the first one really is effective.
    I've stayed away from the edge thing, I knew it was complicated!
