Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop – Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful ladies who are caring for your God-given treasures, to those who are in a position of caring for children – step-mums, guardians, to dads – who have to step in as mum and to everyone of you who share the load. It’s a very special day to honour a very special Mum in our lives. So for our Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop I created a Mother’s Day card using our Floral theme.

There are an endless amount of options when it comes to Floral and the variety that Stampin’ Up! offers.

The hibiscus from the Timeless Tropical stamp set is a pretty image to colour. I stamped 2 of these and coloured with Light Flirty Flamingo and Light and Dark Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends, Then I cut along the petal lines of one flower, curling the petals with a bone folder. This flower was attached to the other to create a 3D flower.

With such a pretty flower, I wanted my background structured and simple. I die cut several labels from the Hand Penned DSP and arranged it to the card. This created an interesting background for my flower.

I hope you enjoy your Mother’s Day with your family and getting spoiled! Thank you for spending some time with me on this special day and I hope to see you again soon. Please click on the Next button to see Satomi Wellard’s lovely project.

aWow Blog Hop – The World Around Us

Welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne, Australia. Today, our Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop team are sharing with you a glimpse into the world around us. We could be inspired by nature, colour, home decor, cushions, pets … anything in our lives right now.

My inspiration today is from my front garden. Whenever someone in the neighbourhood (we live in a small town) asks where we live, I’ll say ‘the house with the huge palm tree in the front yard’. Well, it’s actually 2 palm trees that have merged into one. Don’t say a word, we did not plant it like this. It came when we bought the house and now it’s bigger than Ben Hur! So here’s a bit of a glimpse at it.

The large tree trunk with the look of a giant pineapple inspired me to create these leaves using the In the Tropics dies. I also added the cross-section of the tree trunk from the Rooted in Nature stamp set in keeping with my tree theme.

I wanted to recreate some stripes, similar to the Forever Greenery DSP but I wanted to use pink because my favourite colour is pink. So I chose a combination of Rococo Rose, Blushing Bride, Just Jade and Pear Pizzazz with 2 different sizes of Water Painters and painted the lines using a ruler as a guide.

A splatter of Champagne Mist using the lid of the Water Painter adds a bit of glimmer to this card.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting my part of the world. Next on our hop is Cazz Boylan. Please click on the Next Blog button to follow through to her blog and keep going for lots of creative inspiration.
