Happy Mother’s Day to everyone….whether your children happen to be two legged or four! I created this card with the Timeless Tulips stamps by Sunny Studios. Sunny Studios was a new company to me…..but it was love at first sight! I love the layers on these tulips and they have an awesome daffodil stamp set as well. The daffodils are still on my wish list! While Close To My Heart has always been my first love….I am an equal opportunity stamper….and collect the images that I love. I give thanks to all of the crafters in blogland for the enabling!
I found my layers through trial and error. I put all of my pink inks together and stamped away on scrap cardstock until I came up with a trio of colors that worked well for me. The leaves were much simpler, as they only had two layers. I originally purchased a set of inks for this set that were just for layering….but they did not work out well for me. I have decided it works much better to just play with the inks you have and come up with a combo that works for you. The Short & Sweet Sentiments set by Close To My Heart was perfect for making a tag to hang off of the jar.
Since my stamp collection is still recovering from my craft room loss…..I printed a sentiment from Word onto my cardstock and mounted to the inside. I added a little burlap for some added texture.
