Here are the cards that I made for my DDIL’s for Mother’s Day.
I am grateful for my daughters-in-law. They are both such wonderful mothers and beautiful women inside and out. My sons are so lucky to have found them. I love them both with all my heart.
The flowers on both cards have been stamped twice. After coloring the stamp directly with a marker, a flower was stamped. Then I huffed* the stamp, turned it 90 to 180 degrees and stamped again. Stamping a second time without applying more ink results in the second image being lighter and adds depth and dimension to the flower.
Because the stem on the flower was longer than I wanted, I only inked a portion of it before stamping.
These cards are a CASE of a RAK that I received a few years back from epiphany. I loved her card! It is such a timeless and beautiful design. In fact this is the second time I have CASEd it. On the first CASE, I added a background stamp to one of the large panels.
Both of my married sons live in the same city and this past week I flew south and visited with them. It was so nice to see my sweet granddaughters.
Alivia has had a loose tooth. While I was babysitting the twins one day it finally fell out! She was so excited that there “wasn’t even any blood and it didn’t hurt at all”. lol
I hope that all mothers and all those who mother have a wonderful day this Sunday.

*Huffing a stamp is when you breathe on a stamp to re-moisten the ink with your breath.
