Mother's Day Cards

Hi! I have a quick post before I start adding the new House Mouse & Friends stamps to the 2RedBananas site.....they are so cute!!!

Today, I'm sharing some Mother's Day cards I've made since cleaning up my studio. It's amazing how much more productive I am ;)

This first one is using the Technique Challenge at SCS. The challenge is about using the wax paper resist technique with embossing folders. I ADORE embossing folders, as you will see on the next card as well :)

Stamps: Caring Critters - 2RedBananas, sentiment - Stampendous
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, SU Gorious Green, StazOn black, Creamy Brown chalk ink
Paper: glossy cardstock for the resist technique, kraft and teal regular cardstock
Other: prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, grosgrain ribbon, prima flowers, dew drops - sunflower, cuttlebug embossing folder, quickutz diamond dies

This second card uses a brand new embossing folder from Quickutz. I ADORE the cuttlebug ones so much that as soon as I learned that Quickutz had released some embossing folders, I just had to try one. The one that I bought has the rectangle in the center for the sentiment and I don't have anything even close to that :) I am very impressed with the Quickutz ones as well, the are VERY close to the same thing as the cuttlebug ones. Makes me a happy girl! :) It also helped me make this Clean and Simple card and I'm just not all that great at making these.
Stamps: sentiment - Stampendous
Paper: Bazzill
Other: Quickutz embossing folder, chalk, prima flowers and dew drops - soil and water

This third card was cased from the new Stamp It! Cards Magazine pg. 82 Alisa Bangerter's 'thinking of you' card. I love this magazine!
Stamps: Elegant - Little Yellow Bicycle, sentiment - Studio G
Ink: lavender and yellow citrus chalk inks
Paper: Basic Grey
Other: ribbon, primas, dew drops, word window punch - McGill

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Three GORGEOUS cards, Jeanette! They are all marvelous. I love the colors in all of them. I didn't know that Quickutz had embossing folders!

You are really productive when your room is clean aren't you. Love the clean and simple card. Hope a mom gets that one.
