May Stamp of the Month "Flowers for You"
This stamp set has some lovely images and sentiments, the floral circle is so pretty and all of the stamps can be used in so many different projects. This set would be perfect for a Mothers Day card.
I have taken inspiration from one of CTMH's sample cards using this stamp set. I love the look of the white heat embossing, this is a simple but pretty card. I heat embossed the flowers and sentiment using the Daisy White pigment ink instead of Versamark ink and then used white embossing powder. I added some splatters using the same ink and the pearls adds a little bling.
This layout has photos of my mum and our beautiful front yard from many years ago. My dad was the gardener and I love how beautiful these flowers are. Because I have misplaced my Spectrum Noir markers I have stamped the flowers in a single colour and I am really happy with how they look. Mothers are special people aren't they, my mum turned 89 this January and thankfully she is still quite independent and lives alone but is now requiring a lot more assistance than before.
After stamping the image for this card I used the stitched circle thin cut to cut just part of the image. I dry embossed the yellow cardstock with the dot folder then lightly sanded it to reveal the white core, how pretty is that. I love the sentiment "just because" so when I want to send a card that's not for any particular occasion this is perfect.
Thank you for stopping by now hop along to to see what Danielle from Scrappychicks Art has to share I am sure it's something great.
