Happy Mother’s Day Gnomes

Welcome Back KLM Digital Designs Fans!

KLM Digital Designs has just released some brand new stamps this month, and today I’m sharing Mom and Kids Gnomes (KLM Digital Designs)!  This new stamp contains adorable images of a mom, her children and 3 loving sentiments for your mother. A perfect new release for Mother’s Day!

For this card, I decided to create my own family. The digital stamps allow you to resize them to your preference, so I made one boy larger than the other to represent my older and younger brother.

To put the card together, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and the sentiment onto Recollections – Purple Passions 8.5″ x 11″ paper. I coloured in the main image with copics and then mounted it onto purple Recollection’s paper.

I cut a piece of Recollections – Petite Floral – Double Sided paper to 6″ x 6″ and mounted it onto my 6″ x 6″ card base. I went around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet. Then I cut the previously printed out sentiment to 6″ x 1.25″ and taped it onto the base card. Lastly, I mounted the coloured image with the purple frame onto the base card.

Mother’s Day Card 2015

Hi There,

Sharing a card I made for my mom this year using Craftin Desert Divas Rain or Shine stamps and Sentiments.

I used my watercolour pencils to do the background. Then I used my Cricut Explore to cut out all of the hearts, mom and red puddle.

The red puddle is supposed to represent a puddle of love. I thought the hearts went with the sentiment for raining down love.

Here’s a closer look of the little girl. I coloured her in with my Prismacolor Premier Pencils and then blended with Gamsol.

I used my Gelly Roll Pen 08 for the eyes.

For the blue puddle, I cut out the puddle with my Cricut Explore and then added Glossy Accents. I also paper pierced the pattern in the umbrella and added a few small hearts.

Lastly, I wrote this poem for my mom on the inside. Thought I’d share it with everyone.
