Mother's Day

Tia's Tips: When creating your cards/scrapbooks, don't be afraid to create sentiments straight from the heart! Craft and stamp companies don't always know what or how to express what it is you want to say. Yes, just like Hallmark-they often get it right and entice us into their products with the best of sentiments. But when those fall short, say what you really want to say! There are word processing programs available if your computer/laptop/tablet didn't come with one. There are so many awesome fonts to use and many to download for free. You can always use your own handwriting for an even more personal touch. In the end, that's why we make our cards-for that personal touch!




Welcome Friends! If you've been following me you know that I love to read! And if you are new to my site-jump back into my library and you will see that I've created lots of cards and bookmarks all around my devotion to reading and books! In face, I almost got my Master's in Library Sciences!!! I owe my love of reading and books to none other than my MOM!


Now that Spring has sprung, Mother's Day will be upon us very soon! So I'm taking time to get ahead and get my cards done now! I love this sweet stamp "Momma Kangaroo" with her little Joey and reading together! I have photos of my mom reading to me and me reading to my son!




I started with an A2 sized card base and piece of card front. I used a stitched die to cut down the size and then used a hexagon die to cut out an opening. I selected a pallet of pink & green papers. I used a heart embossing folder on the green paper.

Again I used the hexagon to cut all of my papers. I traced the cut-out on the card base so I could stamp the Thank You in the window.



I used my computer to create my own personalized message banners. I used the stitched die to keep the card cohesive in appearance.


I stamped Momma Kangaroo on a piece of Hammermill Color Copy paper and inked with my COPICS.

COPICS USED:

E13, E15, E18

W3, W5

RV13 & Copic Multi-liner Black


I glued down the hexagon design paper and trimmed off the edges. I ran it through the stitched die again. Then I popped Momma Kangaroo up on foam tape.

I completed the inside of the card with the sentiments from the set-which are so perfect for Mom!


Thanks for following along friends! Head over to the store and pick up this adorable set to get your Mother's Day cards started.
