StampInkPaper Team Mother's Day Blog Hop


Welcome to our . A blog hop is where you 'hop' from blog to blog linked by the same theme, you may have arrived here from Anne Farrar's blog, or just happened upon the tour by chance. Our theme is of course Mother's Day. Each of our team members has made a card using Stampin'Up! products.


My Mothers Day card features Calypso Coral, Raspberry Ripple, Lucky Limeade and Very Vanilla colour scheme. I have used the Tulip Embossing folder which has been sponged with Calypso ink to make the tulips really stand out. Next layer is two Top Note diecuts, one slightly trimmed by hand to provide a matt look, and then stuck together and run through the Big Shot with the Lattice embossing folder. Quite an embroidered type look I guess....

The final touches are the Teeny Tiny Sentiment Mothers Day greeting peeking through a punched Decorative Label punch, and a sponged layered flower - all SU bits and bobs of course! My Mum returns from the UK this week, so I look forward to giving this to her and telling her how much I have missed her the past 6 weeks. I hope you get to speak to or think about the special Mothers in your life this week. 

When you have finished here, you can continue the hop through the link at the end of this post to the next team member's creations.
