stampin up demonstrator zoe tant
Just like Christmas I find that key events like Mother's Day creep up on you and before you know it the rush is on to make a beautiful card or two and you can get in a mess. I'm taking part in a Ladies Pamper Evening at Kirkby on Bain Primary School very soon and so I thought I'd try to get ahead of the game for others as well as myself by making a few Mother's Day cards and gifts. It's late this year so we've all really got no excuse, but the days just seem to run away with me...... I don't know about you! Today's card has worked out well for the Less is More challenge this week which has a colour theme of pastels and so here I've used pastel shades of marina mist, bashful blue, baja breeze with a little certainly celery just to highlight it all. On my flower which is made from the Pick a Petal stamp set from Stampin' Up! I've added some dazzling diamonds and highlighted spots on the petal edges with my versamarker and clear embossing. You'll need to click on the picture for a better view, unfortunately the light in Lincolnshire isn't good today. Hope it's better wherever you are.
My sentiment is from a retired US Stampin' Up! set and I've used markers to ink it and then around the stamped layer I've used my certainly celery marker to gently add some definition to the edges.
Buttons from the subtles collection and a rhinestone just finish the flower and give a little more luxury for a special mum.
Must dash now as it's Sunday I'm supposed to be ironing and Charlie objects to going to school with no trousers if he can't find them under his nose at the end of his bed! Typical boy!!!!
