Mother's Day is coming up in Australia (where my Mummy lives!) so I wanted to make something I could send her along with her card. I decided to make a little wall hanging that she can put in her kitchen or study or even bring to work with her. I used the inspiration and theme from the Friday Mashup challenge (not the pop-up bit though) as well as the layout from Freshly Made Sketches.
These are really simple to make using a piece of bare chipboard as the base, then the rest is just like putting a card together. I used some Attic Boutique paper from the Summer mini and took the colour scheme from that. The cup was stamped on Very Vanilla using Regal Rose ink rock 'n' rolled in Rose Red, then I covered with Versamark and clear embossed. The panel it is 'sitting' on is Crumb Cake stamped with the Woodgrain background stamp - I glued a doily half from the Flirtatious dsp pack to make a 'tablecloth' of sorts. The heart and U was die-cut with the Timeless Type set of Alphabet dies (I just got these and I'm loving them!). I added a few pearls, and some lace to hang it with.
Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Tea Shoppe, Woodgrain, For My Family
Ink: Rose Red, Regal Rose, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake
Paper: Attic Boutique dsp, Flirtatious doily, Pool Party textured card, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
Tools: Swirls Scribbles sizzlit die, Timeless Type sizzlits dies
Accessories: pearls, lace trim, clear EP, jumbo eyelets (retired)
Thanks for stopping by!
