For Mom With Love

 Hello, just popping in with a Mother's Day card made the old-fashioned way with clear stamps, ink, stencils, die cuts and paper this time. 😉
Card Recipe:
Bazzill white textured 6x6 card base
Springhill Digital white card to stamp on
Promarkers to color stamped focal image
Basic 6x6 Green at Heart paper collection
Crafters Companion Moonbeam Meadow With Love stamps
Verve Mother's Day stamp
Technique Tuesday With Love stamp
Inks: Versafine Clair, Versamark, Distress Milled Lavender and Twisted Citron
Hero Arts white embossing powder
Stencils: Funky Fossil Sweet Hearts, Creative Coach Leaves Background
Spellbinders Dies: 6x6 Card Basics, Art Deco Fairmont Labels, Classic Squares
Little B's Scalloped Circle die
Fiskars corner punch
Deco scissors
Satin ribbon, stitched satin flowers and purple rhinestones from stash
I used this Splitcoaststampers sketch for my design layout.
The sweet focal image is part of the Crafters Companion Moonbeam Meadow With Love stamp set I won at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Challenge, where I'll be guest designing in June. The set also has a very cute birdhouse scene that I used last month on this card. This card is for Honey's mom and since he's her first-born, we thought it was a great image to use, even though it's also a great image to use for a wedding anniversary. Honey dearly loves his mom, and so do I. 💖
Close-up shot of these adorable mice I colored with Promarkers, along with the 2 stencils I used on this focal image background. The hearts were stenciled with Milled Lavender Distress ink, the leaves were stenciled with Twisted Citron Distress Ink.
At left is the inside of the card: I stamped the sentiments in Versamark and white heat-embossed. I die cut a Spellbinders Classic square, then a smaller square that I punched the corners of, then placed it back inside the larger square for a bit of interest. At right, the back of the card with corner-punched paper same as on front and a stamped and punched siggie.
And final view. I'm loving all the green, pinks and purples for a refreshing Spring look. Even though it has heated up here somewhat, we are still enjoying Spring weather while it lasts as it will start feeling like Summer in an eye blink. I'm always grateful to have a little Spring! Hope you are enjoying your weather wherever you are and best wishes for a nice day/evening. XOX

Mother's Day card for my hubby's mom - inspired by the Love - son and mother mouse on card

Nothing wrong at all with the "old fashioned way" Aimeslee, especially when it so bold and welcoming as this one.

Thanks so much for sharing with us at Stamping Sensations and We Love Stamping challenge.
