NEW RELEASE – Stick Family Mother’s Day & Nurse – by Jill Hilliard

$2.50 shipping within the US – Current Shipping Special!

Good Saturday morning! Jill is here today sharing two fun cards she made with our Stick Family Release. The first is a darling Mother’s Day card and the second is a card to thank a nurse. We are also sharing some tips and tricks for creating fun hairdos on this family. Take a look:

How absolutely SWEET for Mom on Mother’s Day.

Mom and her two kiddos are so darn cute!

I am loving the hairdos Jill created on them all.

And the sentiments are just perfect!


Jill’s second card today is to thank a nurse – truly, they ARE our heroes – along with so many others.

Jill drew on the nurses cap and hair. Too, too cute!

Jill did her coloring on both cards with Copic markers.


This is Jill’s practice sheet as she was deciding which kind of hairdos would work for  her.

She has a lot of fun options here and has a TIP to share with you:

 TIP: Lightly draw the hair with a pencil, then complete it with a black sharpie.

Note that in several instances Jill turned the top of the head into a head band – how fun.

Great tip and love all the samples Jill provided!

Earlier in the week Esther shared a tip on how to create hairdos by not stamping the head completely.

TIP: To create more realistic hairdos (especially on the ladies/girls) don’t stamp the complete top of their heads, but only as high as their eyebrows, and then use a black sharpie to finish them off with your selected hairstyle.

I LOVE that tip – so very helpful!!!

Holly created this family by stamping the head fully and just running with it, drawing in her hairdos using a black fine point Sharpie.

Super darling, super easy!

Dad’s hair cracks me up – LOL!

Thanks, Holly!

For these two kiddos I used a black fine point Sharpie to draw on hats.

I did stamp both heads fully. Had I wanted to color the baseball cap a lighter color, it would work better to stamp his head  up to a bit above the eyebrows only.

Deb created this couple where she added a mustache and beard to Dad.

She fully stamped both heads and added a headband to Mom.

The coloring was done with Copic markers.

So fun to create anyone at all!

Thanks, Deb!

Hope these ideas and tips help you to use your new Stick Family stamp sets!
