My Mothers Day Cards 2013

Afternoon everyone hope you are all well on another wet and miserable day
 (in preston anyway).

I thought I would share with you the two mother's day cards I made this year.

The first card is for my mum:- 

I was inspired to make this card by a very talented lady called Lesley Hawkins.  In one of her cards she used these dies and I thought it was just amazing.  Hope you like my card just as much as I liked hers.

I know you can't see the main image very well but it is made using double sided adhesive, glitter and a 
dream weavers stencil.  I used spellbinders dies large ovals and large scalloped ovals, Cheery Lynn flourish and Crealies Leaves Die .

Bling Appeal :- I used peeloffs, liquid pearls, flat back pearls and glitter.

Flowers:- I made all the flowers using my cricut to cut out the large flower and also cut out circles to make the smaller flowers.


This is the card I made for my mother in law.

 I used a a recent stamp I bought in a sale at inspirations of Preston which I bought for the bargain price of £1.50.  I coloured the rose in with spectrum noir pens and then photocopied it onto photo paper several times.  This gave it the great glossy finish that I love.  

The flower is then decoupaged to make a great 3d finish to the card.  I used the same cheery lynn flourish as above and also Spellbinders fancy lattice and hexagon dies.  

I cut the mothers day out using cheery lynn dies .

The stamped image in the middle of the card was sprayed with crafters companion  spray & sparkle .

Thanks for looking,
