All about Mothers: Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop

What comes to mind when I hear the word Mother?  Well I think of a hard working, honest, loving, amazing, super woman, yellow, and flowers...and of Me help me Rhonda.  *ya know--that's my Mom's name ;)

Since my mother and I both enjoy gardening and flowers, I thought I would pull out the Jar of flowers stamp set and my Stampin' Blends!

I stamped the images I was going to use in Early Espresso ink.  To create the jar, I stamped and then colored the stems with the Old Olive Stampin' Blends.  To add the water, I used Misty Moonlight ink but stamped off twice to get the hue I wanted.

Some of the details on my card include a gold embossed jar lid, gold leafing using the tear & tape adhesive.  This is on a layer under the birch background piece.  I also colored an additional sunflower and cut it out to pop up.  I used 5 different sets of the Stampin' Blends to get the different colors...a little crazy...I know!  I also used very vanilla card stock so the colors would be a little more muted and not so in your face bright.   I colored the whole sunflower and then went over the center with the dark crumb cake blends.

For the birch background, I used Sahara Sand ink and a blending brush around the outside to create a little shadow country look.
Since I wanted a colored jar, I lightly used the Calypso Coral light blend and went over the whole jar, adding some darker edges.
For the ribbon, I used my Ribbon Technique from my blog last month.

And of course, this saying is everything.  How so very true.
Love ya Mom!
