Mum's Birthday

This is Mum's birthday card this year made with a stamp set I've often admired (as has Anne!) but never bought until recently.

It's a two-step set meaning the light colour is stamped first and then, with the use of a stamp-a-ma-jig, the darker colour is stamped over the top to provide the detail.

The large flower and 2 sets of leaves were stamped over the base card.  The little flowers were stamped out separately and have been added to the card with foam pads.

Sentiment from a retired SU set and cut out with oval framelits.

Memento ink used was Summer Sky and Paris Dusk.


  1. This is beautiful - I love the effect of the two step/two tone stamping for flowers. Please pass my good wishes on to your Mum for her birthday.

  2. Gorgeous card Jill and this set is on my list......your colours are beautiful


  3. Oh wow Jill, a stunning and beautiful card, I do hope your mum had a fabulous birthday and that you are now on the mend from your bug. hugs Shirleyxxx
