Isn't this stamp a beauty! With mother's day right around the corner this is an easy way to make a her a fabulous card! No coloring, just the wonderful script of, "Happy Mother's Day", a few die cuts, pretty papers and trim!


Love, love, love the Wildflowers and Mason Jar! I stayed with the mother's day theme by adding the "Mom", but oh the possibilities with these stamps has me so excited! I stamped the floral image onto Copic paper. The jars are inked on vellum. The jar image has just enough shading to where I was able to dab glue just in the right spots without it showing! A few flowers were fussy cut and I added some extra leaves at the opening of the jar.

Here are the Copics I used for the Wildflowers.




The sweet watering can is " Flowers and Ferns". I've used another gorgeous stamp saying, "Happy Mother's Day"!

These are the Copics for Flowers and Ferns.
