Happppppppppppppppy day to you... Cherry here for The Rubber Cafe' today. Mother's day is just around the corner so I thought I would focus on a little something something for the sweet Mom's in our lives. Of course a card is always nice but I thought I would create a companion piece to go along with my card, so I got out my coveted Rubber Cafe' stamps, Be Stylish and Give Momma Some Love. I also of course made sure my Scrap Happy glue was by my side.(It is my security blanket...lol..and it rarely leaves my side.)
I started with the card. I wanted to see if I could create a text background with one of the sentiments in the "Give Momma Some Love" set...I stamped it on the top part of my cardstock staggering it a bit. I didn't worry about perfection because I knew that most of it would be covered up. I loved the font to this set, so old fashioned and feminine. I added my papers to the bottom half of the card and my scroll diecut and than stitched around the edges. I inked the edges for an aged appearance as well. After that I used a scrap piece of cardstock and stamped my main sentiment and adhered it with my Scrap Happy glue and a button.
I than went to work layering and creating my bloom.....if you look you will see that I created text onto some canvas using the "Give Momma Some Love" stamp as well to keep with the theme. I used old lace and canvas as the base along with a vintage button. I used hot glue so that it would adhere very quickly. Other than that some homemade stick pins and crickle ribbon.
Now with the the companion piece I made a "mini pincushion" of sorts using the "Be Stylish" corset. I stamped it on to some canvas, tea stained it and then cut it out.
Hope you enjoyed and thanks for letting me share!
