Hey everyone, Hope you are well and in good spirits. I think I am getting used to the new normality. Another four weeks of lockdown announced today. In my state of Western Australia, we are down to single digits of infected cases and deaths for past few days. More than two thirds of our infected cases and all of the deaths were from cruise ships. Social distancing has significantly helped along with quarantining returning travellers. Infact, we here in Western Australia are very proud of our Premier. He was quick, firm and took the right decisions as soon as information came into his office. Good leadership. I hope every country in the world is able to contain this infection, so people and economy can return back soon.
In my house, we do a lot of cooking generally. But now it has doubled. So much food that I am sick of eating. I have started fattening my curve in the middle. I have to reduce food intake and start exercising soon. If this pattern continues, for another four weeks I will have serious health consequences. Having said that, I have done a lot of organising and cleaning around the house. There is nothing more I can do now. Have to think of some thing more productive to do in order to get a good night sleep.
Anyway, enough rambling. I came here to share a funny mother’s day card with you using Taylored Expressions Mother’s Day/Floral release products release this Tuesday.
I have used the new Beautiful Blossoms stamp set and dies along with the new The Inside Scoop – For Her and Building Blocks Her stamp sets. I stamped the images from Beautiful Blossoms stamp set on Sugar Cube cardstock panel using Oreo Hybrid ink and coloured using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. Using the coordinating dies, I die cut them out. I white heat embossed the sentiment from The Inside Scoop For Her stamp set on Oreo cardstock and trimmed. I also stamped the Building Block Her on Sugar Cube cardstock using Oreo hybrid ink and die cut using the coordinating die. I then coloured the background of Mama sentiment die cut with RV14 copic marker to match the colour of the flowers.
For the background, I sponged Potato Chip and Lemon Meringue TE dye ink heavier on the edges fading towards the centre. Then I stamped the Just Vine background stamp in Potato Chip ink over the sponged panel. This give subtle texture and pattern to a rather plain background. I trimmed the panel slightly smaller to the card front, adhered the Beautiful Blossoms image die cuts to the centre as a cluster. Then I adhered the sentiment on the right bottom next to the flower cluster using foam adhesive. A few white rhinestones to finish off the panel. The panel is adhered to Sugar Cube card base using foam adhesive. This finishes the card.
Cheeky and funny Mother’s day sentiment from The Inside Scoop For Her stamp set. The set has both cheeky and encouraging sentiment. Great set to have in your collection. Check out the TE’s new release, there are really gorgeous stamp sets and dies.
