A Belated Happy Mother's Day post

Hello!

I know I didn't get a chance to post this on the actual day, but better late than never. I hope all the Mothers out there had a lovely day filled with family and lots of spoiling. My dad bought my mom a lovely bouquet of flowers, my brother's and I cooked and for dessert we had a yummy lemon tart from Trader Joe's. I also took my mom shopping, but we didn't get anything, I guess the sales weren't that great.  lol.  We also gave her this card filled with money...


I have been having way too much fun with the new TGF stamps.  It was really easy to choose the ones I wanted to combine to make a new image. I combined Frappi Anya with the new Bean (still not sure what her name is, anyone? Anyone? hahaha) to make her look like my mom.  They both have the same hairstyle.  My mom doesn't really have an outfit like that but it's ok, didn't want to go overboard with the alterations. The colors might be a bit different for everyone, but they are my mom's school colors.  I threw in the green to match the cup.  The chevrons are made up of combinations of different paper pads and some Recollections cardstock that I had scraps of and all were cut using two MFT dies.  I decided to add the Bo Bunny doily at the last minute (note to self, if you're going to do that make sure to adhere the doily first before you add the last chevron else you'll be sorry... lol)  Used a white gel pen to make some faux stitching around the edge of the card and the sentiment is a laser cut word from Island Scrapbooking that I colored with Copics to match the card.  All were mounted on to a kraft card.


I really loved the process of this card.  Using the dies helped a lot and cut in to my scraps considerably.  Well that's all I have today. I hope you're having a great week. Thanks for stopping by.

Super cute Mothers Day card, Leanne! That's so cool how you mixed and matched the stamp images to create your own custom image. Gotta try that! And totally enjoyed reading the creative "process" and step by step you went through to create your card...the finished result turned out great!
