I made a card for both my mom and Topher's mom! The first card is for Topher's mom. His momma loves to call her three little kiddos her ducks in her pond, so I decided to use this cute little stamp I purchased in a crafts store in Phoenix (not sure what it's called). It's originally just the Big duck and the 3 little ducklings, but I cut it in 2 pieces in order to stamp the big duck again so it mimics Topher's family.
The green paper is cuttlebugged with the Birds and Swirls folder, and punched with a Martha Stewart border punch. I broke down and purchased Copic markers before we left for Dallas (much to the pricey chagrin of Topher) and have been in love with coloring in my stamps. I added some grass using my Copics as well. The ribbon was another dollar store find.
This card was for my own Momma. I chose the cut off of the Sweethearts cartridge. I colored in the heart with Copics and wrote in mom on the heart. I then embossed it several times to give it a glossy feel. The flower in the girls hair is actually nail art that I bought in a beauty supply store. I cuttlbugged the green background with spots and dots, and the ribbon is another dollar bin find. Celebrate today is part of the mini sentiments stamp set from Papertrey ink!
