Flowers and mice

And then you realise that there's a really good reason why the other Mother's Day card didn't get posted to the blog. Although you wrote up a load of other cards and scheduled them, you didn't actually get around to writing the post to go with this card. So, a couple of days late, here… Continue reading Flowers and mice

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.

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

Mother’s Day: Doodle blooms

This card was created on February 26th; ready for the time of year when the floral stamp sets come into their own… Mother’s Day. I made this one for my other half's mum. 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
