To The Best Mum


Well, I'm back as promised with the card I made this morning.

This is for my mum's birthday next week but I had to get a wiggle on as it had to be mailed to France.  Mum very rarely accesses the internet so hopefully she won't see this before her special day!

I've used more new products on this one too, I'm having great fun playing with my new goodies!

I used my Ink Dusters (yes, again!) to blend the ink through this fabric effect stencil onto some white cardstock and then stamped the flower image over this in black before die cutting the panel.  I adore this flower stamp, I've seen it used a few times in blogland so when I saw it at one of the craft fairs I just had to have it.  I then combined two stamp sets, both from Clearly Besotted, to create the sentiment and finished off by popping up the panel on 3D foam strips and adding some Doodlebug Sprinkles.

Materials used:

  • Stencil: Dutch Doobadoo - Fabric
  • Stamps: Penny Black - Dreamy; Clearly Besotted - For Everyone and The Best
  • Ink: Memento - Grape Jelly; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Inkylicious Ink Dusters
  • Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Reverse Wonky Rectangles
  • Doodlebug Sprinkles - Lilac
