Mother’s Day flowers

My go-to provider of floral digi stamps is Power Poppy, who make the most gorgeous floral arrangements, but every now and again it's nice to colour something simpler that I can add a few tweaks to. Unfortunately, I discovered Wee Stamps just after she (hopefully temporarily) closed her digi stamp store, so I have to… Continue reading Mother’s Day flowers

Mothering Sunday: Pink camellias

I always make two Mother’s Day cards; the first one was for my other half’s mum and this one — which has to be a Mothering Sunday card — is for mine. Another Power Poppy digi because Marcella’s gorgeous illustrations make it so easy to create beautiful images. Individually, the greens for the leaves don’t… Continue reading Mothering Sunday: Pink camellias

Mother’s Day: Pink clematis

It’s Mother’s Day, so that means flowers. And it’s the perfect opportunity to use some of the Power Poppy digis that I’ve accumulated. First up: the climbing clematis. I didn’t have any plan for the card design when I started so I just concentrated on enjoying doing the colouring. Once I’d finished with the Copic… Continue reading Mother’s Day: Pink clematis

Mothering Sunday: Bouquet and birds

Another catch-up post; this card was originally made on February 27th. This card was for my mum. For her, it always has to be "Mothering Sunday" rather than "Mother's Day" — something which made finding store-bought cards increasingly tricky. Rather less traditionally, there also have to be some cute critters on there. How: I love… Continue reading Mothering Sunday: Bouquet and birds

Inspired by: This card by Sharon Hayes on Instagram. How: Stamping, heat embossing, Distress ink blending and fussy cutting. All far easier… Continue reading Mother’s Day: Doodle blooms

Mother’s Day card: Flowers and bunnies

What: After thinking I had loads of time before Mother's Day came around, this morning I suddenly realised that it is next weekend and, as I hate having to rush things, I really ought to pull my finger out and get a card done for my mum. It's also day four of The Daily Marker… Continue reading Mother’s Day card: Flowers and bunnies

Mother’s Day card: watercolour flowers

What: Rather than creating a straight-line panel, I used stamps and masking to build up a flower pattern following the basic angled shape and then fussy cut around the flowers. This was my first attempt at slightly more complex masking and I'm rather pleased with how it turned out, though fussy cutting Distress watercolour paper without… Continue reading Mother’s Day card: watercolour flowers
