Give Momma some Love...

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 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.  

I stamped two images, and layered them together stitching around almost completely leaving just enough room to stuff just a smidgeon of fiber fill inside to puff it up. I created a base using the largest die from the Spellbinders Labels eight diecut set and cover ed it with my papers. I used a diecut paper frame in order to highlight my "mannequin" and added a chipboard pole left from another project and using it along with the corset to create a dress form.   I also used some vintage laces, crickle ribbons, buttons, homemade posy, and a couple little stick pins from my own stash.

I had so much fun stamping onto fabric and must remember to try it again! I think this will make an adorable little gift for a fellow Mom, friend, or for your own Momma!

Hope you enjoyed and thanks for letting me share!
