A Tribute to my Mom with RubberMoon Stamps

14 Apr

 

When our new RubberMoon Arts Team came together and we were choosing posting dates, I knew I HAD to have today for my blog post.

What is special about today.  It is my mom’s birthday!!

She would have been 70 today, IF she were still with us.

This picture was taken circa 1961, when she graduated from Acalanes High School in Lafayette, Ca.

My mom was a card maker EXTRAORDINAIRE!  She had one hobby and that hobby was rubber stamping.

I was her only child.  She adopted me with her 1st husband when I was just a baby.  So because I was her only child, when she passed away, I inherited, ALL of her crafting items!!

Some things I gave to friends, some I donated, others I kept, to have her with me always.

Her scissors…(see her name, in her writing?)

Her pens….(see her initials in her writing?)

…and Oh My Gosh…her STAMPS!!!  SO MANY STAMPS!!

IMG_5169

I also have  a lot of these packets that she’d have all done up with all the supplies pre-cut etc. to make a certain card. The sample was tucked neatly with all the pre-cut supplies.

Today, I am taking one of those packets and putting a RubberMoon spin on it.

My goal is to stay as close as I can to her original design and color scheme, but use RubberMoon stamps.

1st step, I took the Checkerboard stamp and stamped the background.

This is how it looked.  I didn’t really like it, but I knew how to fix it.

Sew ribbons on it!!

IMG_5175

I added two parallel strips and sewed the edges under the card.

Next, I got all the papers I needed for the paper pieced Shroom Bloom and stamped the necessary pieces.

IMG_5178

For the pieces I needed to add color to, I used Inktense pencils and a blending pen.

IMG_5179

Here are the pieces cut out and colored.

Here is the little mushroom all pieced together!

Now, here is a close up of my Mom’s card I was design “lifting” from.

Remember, her card was already done and does NOT HAVE RUBBERMOON stamps.

IMG_5184

Here is my RUBBERMOON “Take” on her original card!!

IMG_5186

This close up shows the little “oh la la” stamp and the tiny heart from Lindsay Ostrom’s Heart Tree.

Here are a couple more pictures of the cards side by side.

Well, that about does it, for this long blog post.

 

It meant a lot, to me, to have the opportunity to do this post and use so many of her things, honor her and still use RubberMoon Stamps.

I know she would have had shelves FULL of RubberMoon stamps had she had the chance!

Thank you for stopping by today!  Remember to love those close to you….today, NOW!

 Because you know what? Tomorrow doesn’t guarantee they will still be here.

This has been me, Jeannie, with today’s RubberMoon post…and telling you all about my sweet mom!

Have a great day!
