A Mother…

I was asked to create something for a Mother’s Day Raffle for a market I attended last Saturday.  After surfing the net for an idea, I saw this card by Ann Craig. Perfect for what I had in mind.  I actually had the colours & Stamp Set “Flower Shop” sitting on my desk from another project – will post at  later date.

I purchased these frames for a couple of wedding jobs, but decided to create a couple of frames for Mother’s Day.  I’ve actually had a couple of requests for them, so it was perfect timing.  These will be posted in the net couple of weeks leading up to & after Mother’s Day.

The “Mother” wording I found on Pinterest & was perfect with what I wanted.  It was printed onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.

I stamped the same piece of Card using Mossy Meadow Ink & the Leaf image from “Kinda Eclectic“.  I randomly stamped an image from the “Gorgeous Grunge” Stamp Set in Hello Honey ink.

The flowers from “Flower Shop” & “Petite Petals” were stamped with Blackberry Bliss Ink & punched out with the matching Punches – “Blossom” & “Petite Petals” prior to adhering to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish it off prior to placing back into the frame, I scatted Pearls around the card & to the centres of the flowers.

I’m really happy with the Frame, so I only hope the winner of the raffle is too.  I think they will be happy that it can be used again.

Thank you Ann for your inspiration.

Until next time, Happy Stampin;



Mother’s Day…

Using the Mother’s Day Challenge over at Late Night Stampers, I’ve combined SSC # 148 from Stamping 411 – http://stamping411.blogspot.com – to come up with a card suitable for Mother’s Day. 
Of course, how can you go past Stampin’ Up!s® “5th Avenue” stamp set for mother’s day, but then that is me!
My Card –
 Supplies –
Stamp Set – 5th Avenue
InkMelon Mambo* Pink Pirouette
Cardstock – Whisper White, Melon Mambo
Embossing FoldersPerfect Polka Dots*

Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Grosgrain Ribbon – Pretty in Pink

 *  Autumn-Winter Mini-Catalogue 2010
I’ve kept the cut out flower from “5th Avenue” very plain, as I didn’t want to take the whole effect away from the background.
For the greeting, I typed “For You” on the pc, printed & then attached using a very thin piece of Whisper White cardstock.
TIP – Cardstock cut into very narrow strips make for a great thread.  Colour co-ordinate and use it for your buttons, labels, etc
Until next time, Enjoy!
