Mums the word….

Hi Everyone

On my trip to Craftrange last week, they had a bargain bucket, with stamps in it….so….I had a good rummage and came out with this stamp for £3.50.  I have never seen a stamp for a pregnant lady and thought this would be really nice to send to someone either as a ‘congratulations’ or ‘leaving to have a baby’ card.

This time my stamp was crying out to be decoupaged with backing papers and coloured in which I haven’t done in ages, so I first embossed with WOW ebony embossing powder then coloured the stand and background in distress inks, splashing some water onto the background ink for a ‘spotty’ look.

The background paper was from a stamp packaging and I used a Martha Stuart punch down the sides.  The tag is from a jumper I bought, covered with a piece of backing paper, the sentiment ‘new mum’ I printed off the computer and the flower is made from the flower loom I promised to show you a few weeks ago.

I love this flower loom, you can purchase/order them from Stampers Gallery (see left of this post) at about £8 each and you can vary the size of the flower.  Instructions, pegs and a plastic needle come with it.

I have made flowers from curling ribbon (Heartfelt creations post – brace yourself) and this one was made from the wool I purchased from the charity shop a few weeks ago.  I went around the loom 2 times.  I then brushed the ‘spun sugar’ distress ink over the wool to give the ‘pink’ effect and added a button and candy.

The stamp is from Whipper Snapper Designs and is called ‘Pregnant Dressmakers Mannequin’   

Take care…speak soon
