Social Stamping Family Theme


time again for some social stamping with a group of wonderfully talented stampers. Thanks to Kelly for organising this each week. Happily we are creating with a "family" theme this week, so of course I have Mother's Day cards to share.


Neither my Mum, or my mother-in-law or any of our children (adults) live near us so I do like to make a nice Mother's Day card to send them each year. This year I have been inspired by Lou who has been whipping up a storm with her Bay Window Cards. (you might remember them from Social Stamping last Saturday). I thought they looked fabulous and made some straight away!
They are really effective and very easy.
You can see Lou's creations here and the instructions (from Alicia Yap) here



I am so glad this stamp set is continuing on in the new catalogue. It has some really wonderful images and sentiments. I painted all of the floral pieces with the inks, using a watercolour brush on Shimmery White cardstock stamped with the brown Stazon ink - it's not quite as harsh as the black.


So thankyou Lou for getting me hooked on this design, I was also thrilled to receive one of Lou's gorgeous cards in the mail this week.

I did quite a lot of painting with these images and created some cards for sale at Our Shop too, also using the floral sprays but a traditional card design.
If you're a mum I hope your Mother's Day is a beautiful day, and that you get to spend some time with your family- whatever form that takes this year.


Next this week is the very talented Jan Mc Queen, I look forward to seeing her creations 

Stay safe, stay well and stay connected.


I hope you have a creative week and remember, 
"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"
cheers, Liz
