Simon Hurley create. || Quick Last Minute Comic Style Mother's Day Cards

I am fortunate to have many women in my life who have and still do serve as a mother to me. They've each pulled me out of some kind of darkness at one point or another in my life and I value each of them. But that means that I need to make a lot of cards this time of year! And unfortunately ... with everything happening in the world these days time got away from me. Yikes! Thankfully the Simon Hurley create. Supermom! Stamp Set is perfect!

Many times Mother's Day cards are soft and elegant, but I decided to celebrate Mother's Day with a POW! and use the Supermom! Stamp Set to make some super themed cards!

These cards were very quick to pull together. I made all three in about thirty minutes. I grabbed some bright and happy Dye Inks from Simon Hurley create. and did some quick stamping and coloring on Simon Hurley create. Stark White Cardstock. I used the "POW" and "WOW" stamps from the Sumpermom! Stamp Set and stamped them to cover the backgrounds on three cards. I used Guppy Dye Ink on one card, Tropical Tango Dye Ink on a second, and Crown Me Dye Ink on a third.

I wanted an easy and quick way to add color to the backgrounds, so I used a Dove Blender Pen. This is an inexpensive tool and very easy to use! I smooshed a few colors of Simon Hurley create. Dye Inks onto my glass work surface and picked up the color with the Dove Blender Pen and quickly colored in the words on the backgrounds. I used a mix of Slippery When Wet, Prom Queen, Traffic Cone, Rosy Cheeks, and Overzealous for my coloring.

I stamped and white heat embossed a few sentiments from the Supermom! Stamp Set onto black cardstock and die cut a frame from Stark White Cardstock and adhered them together. I added foam to the back of the sentiment pieces before I added them to each of the cards.

And there you go! Quick Supermom! cards for Mother's Day or any other time you want to thank your mom!
