Happy Mother’s Day

Good Sunday morning and Happy Mother’s Day!  I especially remember my mother today with love and appreciation.  She has been gone for many years but never gone from my heart.

My project today was made using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Garden Notes Jasmine, My Favorite Things Stitched Scallop Basic Edges and the sentiment from Essentials by Ellen Amazing Women.

I started by adding color to the flower centers and the tips of the stamen using scattered straw ink and a mini applicator.  I wasn’t happy with the darker shade of yellow so I lightly added a touch of squeezed lemonade ink to brighten. I formed the stamen by rolling it around the tip of my tweezers and applied glossy accents to the outer edge to secure closed and removed it from the tip. I applied Crafter’s Pick glue to the bottom of each stamen, secured them in place in the flower centers and set them aside to dry. I applied crushed olive ink to the leaves and stems to add more depth of color.  I heat set the ink with my heat gun and then added vein lines using the leaf tool and pad.

I cut the scalloped border on the card base and then inserted it in my MISTI, set my sentiment stamp in place, applied black versafine ink and stamped.  As it turned out I didn’t get full coverage of my sentiment so I inked up the stamp again and stamped it again.  I can’t tell you how much paper I have lost in the past by not getting a good stamped image the first time.  I love my MISTI.  I applied crushed olive ink to the border of the green layer so it would match the green of the leaves.  I applied ATG adhesive to the back of the sentiment base and attached the green border.  I applied mounting tape to the back and attached it to the card base.

The leaf sections were cut apart, arranged and attached in place using glossy accents.  The flowers were attached to the leaves using glossy accents.  I wanted the simple white background to allow all the focus to be on the floral arrangement and sentiment.  I love how elegant the flowers and leaves are.
