|Stampin' Up! Flower Shop , My Friend and Pansy Punch|
Mother's Day in the UK seems to be earlier than the rest of the world and after Valentine's day it always seems to catch us up really quick. Gifts like this can be done at any time and make very pleasing Mother's Day gifts. You can do something similar with a scrapbook page also including pics of pets or grandchildren or just you for your lovely Mum.
I made this pretty picture using an Ikea frame which is deeper than the usual picture frame and allows for a 3D effect. I stamped leaves directly onto a piece of whisper white cardstock to create the depth and also some of the flowers. I then added more by stamping them on whisper white and punching them out with the pansy punch from Stampin' Up!. I put them onto my piercing mat and gently put pressure on the centre of each flower using the stylus from my Simply Scored scoring tool. You can of course buy the stylus on it's own if you want. Small circlur movements slowly bring up the petals and give them more depth and texture. By layering them you can create the 3D effect and of course a little bit of bling in the centre in the form of giant pearls or rhinestones brings them to life. I layered the whole thing onto some garden green cardstock and designer seriew paper from my subtles stack.
I am therefore for once organised with something! My mummy will be pleased!
