Stamp It Blog Hop — Strong & Beautiful Mother's Day

Hello my stamper friends!  Welcome to our April Stamp It Bog Hop.  It's finally behaving like Spring in our area...the blossoms are full on the trees, the tulips and daffodils are in full bloom and the pollen levels are on a high.  But, soon it is a time that we celebrate all the Mom's in the world, too.  Check out all the love created for Mother's Day...I'm sure your inspiration bucket will fill to the brim.

Stamp-it-mothers-day-blog-hopIf you have been traveling along the Stamp It Group Blog Hop, or, if this is your very first stop, I want to thank you so much for stopping to visit me Lori Mueller, Stampin' Dreams. If you like to skip and hop and happen to get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.


One of my favorite things to do is to combine and share the love with my Designer Series paper on one creation.  The background patterned papers are from different paper packs and rests on a matte layer of Highland Heather.  The Old Olive dotted pattern comes from the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper and the rustic wood layer comes from the Wood Textures Series Paper Stack.  Partnering these patterns allowed me to enhance a Spring-y tone with a vintage-y appeal.  So much like me.  haha!


To tie the sentiment together with the Powder Pink cardstock base (retiring on June 3rd) and Highland Heather matte layer, ink up the sentiment from Strong & Beautiful in Highland Heather and stamp onto a strip of Powder Pink.  Add it to the Early Espresso Pretty Label die using Stampin' Dimensionals.


Instead of stamping the flower images from the Needle & Thread stamp set, I decided to fussy-cut (fancy word for hand cutting out the flowers) various flower bundles from the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper pack.  The rest of the die cuts are a mix of Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz and Vellum cardstock from the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies set to fill the 'bouquet'. 


COOL TIP WITH TOOLS — There's a fun die within the Needlepoint Elements framelits dies that coordinates with the Pretty Label punch.  The die is shaped just like our Pretty Label punch, but when run through the Big Shot, it leaves a stitched/dotted layer...it does not 'cut' out a layer.  But, this stitched/dotted layer lines up perfectly with the Pretty label punch to allow you to punch out the impression and use as an individual element.  Super cool!
