What I made on Mother's day

A few fun cards to share with you all from my Mother's day weekend! This first one is inspired by a cool poster I saw. Unfortunately I lost the name of the artist that created it! I found it on Art so if you're curious search "martini" there. This card was really fun to create. I used the 1 olive martini stamp from Dog Gone Stamps (link to it is here). They have a lot of new stuff there and a sale too so stop by! I printed out the "mar-tini" text on my computer with publisher to get it just the right size and position. I printed it out on my good card stock then colored in the spaces with my copic markers. To add a sheen to the text I colored in the black lettering with a black Jelly glaze pen. I just love the shine! Each martini glass has crystal effects on it as well, but that did not photograph well no matter what tricks I tried!

This next card was my idea for my RAK group birthday card this month. I don't usually send square cards for those as the extra postage is expensive! This month there's just a couple so it worked out great! I love to play with the craft color's so fun and easy to work with since it goes with everything! This even had a subtle print already on it. I can't remember who made it but it's from Michael's! The adorable little bear stuffing her mouth is from I Brake for Stamps and found here. There is a whole line of the cute lil' bears. They are fun to use since there's not much they need done to them with all that fur! To get the cake all fixed up I used a really creamy brown colored pencil for the chocolate, then topped it with crystal effects. The pink frosting is a simple squirt paint *($1.00 Michael's) that I just squirt on where I want it and let it dry overnight. I added a few sprinkles of some glitter I had that isnt' really metallic and voila!!! The border punch is by Martha Stewart-one of my very favorite things!
I also made a Tilda birthday card for a friend this week, but will post that to share with you all later!
Have a wonderful week!
