Sweet Stampin' - Mother's Day / Special Lady


Happy Saturday! It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin', and as it's Mother's Day in the UK next week (26th March) our theme is Mother's Day or for a Special Lady. Don't forget to include some stamping to bee lili gable for our top 3.
I used stamps by Polkadoodles for my card this week, from the Stamp Soup and Stamp ME sets. I stamped a load of the flower building elements with versafine on Sheena's stamping card and coloured them with my zig real colour pens and a waterbrush, before fussy cutting them and adding a black marker round the edges to hide the cut white edge.
On a 6x6 card blank I stamped some stems, curving the stamps a little on the acrylic block and coloured them in. I then built up my flowers and leaves on the stems. I stamped the beautiful from the stamp soup set in the bottom left corner and found a Mother's Day sentiment from Clearly Besotted to stamp in the top right corner. Of course, I was too lazy to get my MISTI out and messed up the stamping! Fortunately, the Stamp Me set contained s large butterfly, so I stamped and cut this out and hid, the mess. It didn't quite cover it all, so I doodled around it a little. There was also a small butterfly in the stamp set so I stamped a couple of them on the card to balance it out. A doodled border and job done!

  4. Absolutely lovely. The colors are so vibrant and the tip you have for covering up the fussy cut edge was pretty nifty. Barbara
