Hey, crafty friends! If you are a mother, what has been the most meaningful gift that you have received for Mother’s Day? For me, I just love being able to spend time with my girls. Life gets so busy and being able to slow things down and make plans to spend time together is a special treat. I do love looking back at the cards that they have given me over the years for Mother’s Day, both hand made and bought, to see their names, scribbles, drawings, and messages of love for me.

I have more inspiration for Mother’s Day card making for you again today. The last few days have been all about flowers for Mother’s Day, but today I have something not so flowery, but definitely bright, fun, and colorful. Today’s also the day we reveal our Thankful for Mom kits! We did all of the planning for you and put together a few options to purchase supplies that you need to create a card perfect for Mother’s Day.

Before we get to the project, just a reminder about our Mother’s Day product promotion:

Alright, let’s get on to the project that I have to share with you today from Taylor!

This card by Taylor is just perfect for Mother’s Day, but you could use it any time of year when you want to send your mom some love and/or encouragement. Watch the video below to see how Taylor put this card together using the new Water Media Mat and liquid watercolors:

How cool is that Water Media Mat? It’s the perfect surface to play with your watercolors and inks on!

The “smooshing” technique that Taylor used on this card is an easy one to do and the result are just so fun and colorful!

To get you started on creating this colorful Mother’s Day card yourself, we put together two exclusive kits for you that include supplies that you need to make this project. One kit is the “I Want it All” version that has the stamps, dies, liquid watercolors, and cardstock for the project. The “Basic” kit includes just the stamps and dies for the project.

We didn’t include Versamark ink or embossing powder in the kits as they are supplies that many crafters already have. If you don’t own these supplies, they are available to purchase in the Taylored Expressions webstore.

Here’s a complete supply list for the project featured in the video and kits:

I have a few more projects to share with you today that use the stamps and dies included in the kits above.

Taylor created this pair of Mother’s Day shaker cards with the Color Me Background stamp, Caps Lock – Mom die, and Caps Lock Companion – Mom/Dad stamp set. I love how Taylor used the background both colored and uncolored and creatively die cut the pieces to create two cards at the same time.

Jen Shults created a beautiful color blend over an embossed Color Me Background. I love how Jen layered a vellum heart over the background to set the die cut letters from Caps Lock – Mom and embossed “thankful for you” sentiment from the Caps Lock Companion – Mom/Dad stamp set onto.

Jean Manis had way too much fun with color on this card using the Color Me Background stamp! This is an eclipse style card, but Jean left the Caps Lock – Mom letters uncolored so they stand out a bit more. She added the “thankful for you” sentiment from the Caps Lock Companion – Mom/Dad stamp set embossed in white on a Oreo Double Ended Flag Stacklets die cut.
