Love you, just so you know.

I cant get enough of this wonderful stamp. This time I have stamped then masked off the top flowers and then stamped again to add to the flower stem. Where the flowers meet I added in a leaf or two and some petals to make it look like one stem.

Then when I die cut I just used the die to cut out the original then lined up for the next cut and added the pieces needed like a jigsaw.

If you enlarge the image you can see the cut line but it worked out fine. Then I did it again cutting out a vellum layer, using the cut pieces to help me work out where the vellum should be cut. This had to be rather inventive with a few joins as these were left over pieces. It worked perfectly.

The flowers were coloured with copics and the vellum was meant to be purple but it turned out to be more deep pink but still works okay. The 'love you' die from Technique Tuesday that I never seem to be able to get enough of cut in gold mirror card stock. All finished off with purple enamel dots.

A card for mum and dad just to remind them I love them. Mum cant read anymore but dad can.  They need daily reminders that they are loved and never a burden.


couldn't resist entering again, this time with a purple card.

The vellum under the flowers is from left over pieces.

Thank you so much for coming to visit and please come again soon.
