I even can’t describe you the value of my mother in my life, not only mine but my whole family is nothing without her. She is very special for all of us, even she doesn’t know what she meant in our life. We have just celebrated mother’s day a few weeks ago, a day for us to acknowledge and thank mum for well everything!
Mum was spoilt with gifts (including new crafting toys), cooking and love as she deserves. As a card maker herself, I always feel pressure to create something to wow her. I used Inspiring Iris as the main stamp set, what I like about this stamp set is that you can watercolour as I have or use the infill images to add colour the to petals and leaves.
I stamped the Iris in Jet Black Stāzon Ink Pad and quickly sprinkled Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder over the top of the stamping. A little of the emboss attached to the stamped image and I set it with the Heat Tool. It does not show so well in the photo but the little bit of copper looks great.
I added stitching top and bottom of the Daffodil Delight panel.
The mothers day greeting came from Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set over the top I added texture by stamping the long boarder image from Woven Heirlooms in Versamark Pad and again sprinkled Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder over the top and then heat embossed.
I adore gift wrapping and recently started stepping up my envelope game. I will admit Mum and I often having loving disagreements that I am “wasting” printed paper and ribbons on the packaging. Here is the envelope I made for her card, I did not take a shot of the gifts that were wrapped in Country Lane Designer Series Paper and looked so CUTE! Even mum agreed and she saved the papers I used to wrap, so she can make a card with them.
The Country Lane Designer Series Paper DSP for short is in the clearance rack and is reduced to only $7.70! At first, I was not a huge fan of the paper, to the point it has been sitting unused in my drawer for almost a year. I pulled it out knowing it had Blackberry Bliss and Daffodil Delight, these colours worked for the tones of the Iris.
Inside the card, I have not shown the full inside as I did not want to make you sick with my sappy message but it gives you the idea. This flower is also from Inspiring Iris Stamp Set and lots of ink splatter.
