Simply Mother's day Saturday - Jane and Gio

Both Jane and Gio today for the Simply Saturday's post. 
First of all, Jane made a lovely "mum" hanging heart, using the Tando Creative set and the Americana paints. 

I have used the Tando 'Mum' wreath. First I painted all the pieces and their edges and then used a contrasting paper on the heart.

Use an embossing ink pad on the painted Mum and then cover with Ultra Thick Embossing Powder.

I like to to ink again and put a second powder layer on so that it is nice and smooth. Stick to wreath. 

I actually decided to add Tando Butterflies instead of the flowers

 Before heating the second layer of powder, I sprinkle some glitter

Decorate with a ribbons and self adhesive gems to finish.

Materials used - 
Tando 'Mum' Heart with Flowers
Tando Grab bag - Butterflies
Ultra Thick Embossing Powder - Clear
First Edition Paper Pad - Daydream


We also have a lovely card by Gio today who used the same Poppy stamp that she used on her scrapbook page.

We hope that you enjoyed this mother's day week and you are now ready to make a lovely project for the 10th March (in the UK). 

I decorated the white cardstock with several Distress inks using the The Crafters Workshop template - Mixed-up alpha stencil. I sewed the flower steam and all along the border. I glued the flower stamped using the Woodware clear stamp: Poppy and I stamped the sentiment using the plate Kanban acrylic stamps: Birds of paradise-peacock. I added some Rocaille beads mix: Pales greens.
