As promised--better late than never Mother's Day cards

I bet you were beginning to wonder if I was ever going to get these posted! LOL!

The first card is one that I made for my Mom. I started out with the stamped image from RubberNeckers and colored it with Copic markers. Then I started looking through my paper & I thought the image went perfectly with this designer paper Sultry from Basic Grey. On the flourish chipboard first I air brushed it using Copic markers and then I added Crackle Accents from Ranger. Just a Note ** adding the Crackle Accents on top of the Copic markers will give you a deeper color. The Flourish started out the same color as the dress on the stamped image. I used the Long Scallop Rectangle MegaNestabilities die (S4 143) from Spellbinders to cut out a rectangle in the BG paper and sponged the edges with brown ink. I used the ATC Card (S4 073) die from Spellbinders to make a corner accent on the rectangle and also on the flourish chipboard. The tag is a die cut from the Tags Trio (S3 150) die from Spellbinders and I did the Reverse Stenciling technique on the tag. The Reverse Stenciling technique can be seen by clicking HERE. The edges of the BG paper were distressed and then sponged with brown ink. For embellishments I also added some perfect pearls, trim, flowers, brads and a button.

This next card is one that I made for my mom to give to my Grandma. My Grandma loves purple and lavender so I thought these papers would work wonderfully. Here is a view of the front of the card when it is closed.
Here is a picture of the inside.~I know it might not look like it but this card was actually very quick and easy. I used my Score Pal (thanks Ema!! *wink*) to quickly measure and score the card base and then I used three panels of K&Company designer paper to dress it up. I mounted the card onto a larger base using two different colors of CS, purple 6 x 6 and lavender 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 and then I stamped a flourish image on each side & added some touches of glitter using stickles. I cut, embossed & stenciled the butterflies using the Flying Beauties (S4 123) & Butterflies 2 (S3 146) dies from Spellbinders. To do the stenciling I used Copic sketch markers and the Copic ABS. I also added a little stickles to each of the butterflies. For the sentiment I stamped it using Brilliance Graphite Black ink and then I cut out the sentiment using the Large Classic Oval Nestabilities (S4 110) from Spellbinders.
