Mother's Day Card & Gift

Hi

Thanks for stopping by our blog. Today I would like to share the Card & Gift I made for Mothers day.  

It's a little bit different to my normal style but I have recently found some new products and just had to play. I also wanted to incorporate Stampin' Up! products to show the versatility they have on any project you might be doing.

Firstly I wanted to play with crackle glaze, I know this is not a new product to many of you but it's the first time I've really played with it and been happy with the results. I've also found a new love for Gilding Wax. I've wasted money in the past buying cheaper products and not been happy with the results. So if you can pay a little bit more to get a quality product I'm sure you will be happy with the results. 

Below is the card I made using crackle glaze and filling the cracks with gilding wax. I've also used the Flower Shop, Petite Petals and Itty Bitty stamps and punches from Stampin' Up! The flowers have all been coloured with Blackberry Bliss ink and the Aqua Painters to pull the ink out and give it some shading. To finish them off I've used the Clear Wink of Stella pens to give it the sparkle and Pearl Basic Jewels. The edges have been distressed to finish off the look. 
I was really happy with the final result.



A handmade card wasn't the end of it. Whilst at the Make it Craft show in Farnborough last week, we had a play with Powertex and I needed to play with our goodies. So I decided to decorate a glass jar with this amazing stuff and once again used Stampin' Up products. I won't go into details about Powetex as it will take me to long to write. But if interested click the link Powertex to unleash a whole new world of crafting. 

The Stampin' Up! products used to compliment this gift are the Itty Bitty Punch and Flower Fair Framlits Dies. I have only used the petals from these dies but it's got loads of other uses. It also comes in the Flower Patch Bundle. The sentiment has come from the Crazy About You stamp set which is another great versatile stamp set to have in your stash.


.

I had so much fun making these projects and I hope you've enjoyed looking at them. If you would like to purchase any of the Stampin' Up! products used please click on the highlighted products and it will take you directly to our Online Shop.
