Mother’s Day and Paper Piercing

on May 11, 2015

 I’m on a huge paper-piercing kick right now.  You name the flower and I’ve been working on it.  I love the stampendous stamps for this reason…. They’re detailed and realistic but not too small.

For the morning glories (This might be a petunia stamp, but I can fake it) I used COPICS to color the leaves. Then glued the blue paper flower petals, which I had earlier stamped and fussy-cut.  It’s far easier to color the leaves then glue vs glue then color.  Trust me.  🙂

I know I’m not properly following copic techniques, but I wanted something somewhat flat considering the flowers were totally flat, and the real reason to notice the card.


Since I needed to make a Mother’s Day card I thought this would be perfect for my mom.  I was so pleased that she loved it!  

Below is detail on the papertrey ink die.  I used spray adhesive on the back of the die and then placed it on the white card stock, but I think I must have shifted it slightly…anyway, the white cardstock  was a little sticky in places.  So plan B: I sprinkle with iridescent glitter.  It’s a nice touch to the card I wouldn’t have thought of, so I’m glad it worked out that way!


 I’d already given my mom her gift awhile earlier but didn’t want the card to be totally without a surprise.  This feels like it should be the new thing that I include with my cards, especially birthday!

 I put it directly below the fake seed package, and at the same angle.  Just a little glue to hold it in place… 
Cheers! Xoxo
