This is my second post for today. Spent a lovely morning at one of my local craft shops - Sir Stampalot. They had a demo day and had the lovely Claire from Molly Blooms demonstrating. Of course, a few things just had to fall into my basket lol. Then spent the afternoon with my youngest daughter who is home from uni for the weekend to celebrate a friends birthday. Did get a bit of crafty time towards late afternoon.
For todays card I have used some gorgeous flower stamps from Little Claire's to create a Mothers Day card.
I made an easel card which I really love. Used pink and purple as the colour combo.
Used purple coredinations card and matted a piece of pink backing paper onto it. I punched round the pink paper to give a lacy effect. Although you can't see it in the photo the pink paper has lots of lovely pink flowers on it that match the main image. The image is a Little Claires stamp set called Gerbera. The large and small flowers were coloured in promarkers. I added glitter and a brad to the large flower and little mini buttons to the centre of the corner flowers. I had some flower shaped buttons which I added to the corners and some lovely bows for each side. You can just see it but I also added some ribbon behind the image panel.
For the stopper of the card I used some coredinations card topped with lace, ribbon and a sentiment. I stamped the sentiment and then cut it out using one of my dies. I also added a punched butterfly and lots of gems.
