Mom Words

I've created a variety of Mother's Day cards using American Art Stamp's set, Mom Words by Kathleene Callei. This is a stand alone set that is easily used with other stamps, such as Angel with Child, or with patterned paper as you see in the other three cards today.

The first two cards have a totally different feel although they feature identical layouts. You can easily customize your cards by selecting patterned paper that matches the recipient's personality and then simply add one of these versatile sentiments.

This following card features a paper piecing technique on the angel and child with added pearlescent glimmer to their wings, hair and bouquet with Smooch pearlized accent inks in Gold Lamme, Moonlight and Green Apple (Clearsnap).

The final card is probably my favorite because of it's off kilter-ness. I immediately thought of Christmas when I read this sentiment: Merry Mommy's Day, and wanted to somehow incorporate a Christmas theme. I (hopefully) achieved just that by stamping the sentiment in matching pink ink (Colorbox pigment ink in Razzberry) on a silver {Christmas} ball and giving it the appearance of hanging from a {razzberry} branch/bow.

Thanks for taking a peek!
