A Mama's Love 3 Ways (Simon Says Stamp Mother's Day Cards)


I have been dying to use this stamp set since I got it last year. I wanted something that was versatile and I could use over and over, and had some wonderful sentiments for when I'm feeling particularly sappy.


I made 3 different cards with this stamp set. I got to play with some backgrounds using some techniques I've been wanting to try. Please see below the individual card photos for specific materials and stamp sets I used as well as the different COPICs I used to color the images.


Apologies, there is no COPIC coloring in the video linked at the very bottom as my phone decided there wasn't enough room on it to keep recording (I'd like it noted that my phone was a big fat liar that had separation anxiety on letting things upload to iCloud).

Let's start with this great card. It's similar to the one below with the polka dot background but notice it has different kiddos. I made this one for a friend who has 2 sons. I don't trust myself to draw a dock otherwise that is what they would be sitting on.

I find that not all sentiments make a point of identifying expectant momma's. So this image right here is the reason this one stood out to me. I'm at a point in my life where people around me are procreating. So it's nice if I can surprise them with a card. I actually sent this to my friend's husband to give to her on her special day.

As mentioned above, this card has a boy and girl kiddo and is for my mom for myself and my brother. I also used a background that I made a while ago when I was messing around with my new oxide colors. I was trying to achieve a Bokeh effect, which I think I managed pretty well.
