Give Momma Some Love...

Give Momma some Love..........









Happppppppppppppppy day to you...Cherry Here for TRC today. Mother's day is just around the corner and so I thought I would focus on a little something something for the sweet Mom's in our lives. Of course a card is always nice but I thought I would create a companion piece to go along with my card. I got out my coveted TRC stamps....I used Be Stylish and give Momma some love. I also of course made sure my Scrap Happy glue was by my side. It is my security blanket...lol..it rarely leaves my side. I started with the card. I wanted to see if I could create a text style background with one of the sentiments in the "give momma some love" set...I stamped it on the top part of my cardstock staggering it a bit. I didn't worry about perfection because I knew that most of it would be covered up. I loved the font to this set , so old fashion and feminine . I added my papers to the bottom half of the card and my scroll diecut and than stitched around the edges. I inked the edges for an aged appearance as well. After that I used a scrap piece of cardstock and stamped my main sentiment and adhered it with my scraphappy glue and a button. I than went to work layering and creating my bloom.....if you look you will see that I created text onto some canvas using the "give Momma some love" stamp as well to keep with the theming. I used old lace and canvas as the base along with a vintage button. I used hot glue so that it would adhere very quickly. Other than that some homemade stick pins and crickle ribbon. Now with the the companion piece I made a "mini pincushion" of sorts using the "Be Stylish" corset. I stamped it on to some canvas I tea stained and cut it out. I stamped two images. I than layered them together and stitched around almost completely and left room to stuff just a smidgeon of fiber fill inside to puff it up. I created a base using Spellbinders Labels eight diecut. I used the largest one in the set. I covered it with my papers. Used a diecut paper frame to frame the "mannequin" out. I had a chipboard pole left from another project and used it along with the corset to create a dress form with it. I also used some vintage laces, crickle ribbons, buttons, homemade posy, and a couple little stick pins from my own stash. I had so much fun stamping onto fabric and must remember to try it again! I think this will make an adorable little gift for a fellow Mom, friend, or for your own Momma! Hope you enjoyed and thanks for letting me share! hugs, cherry

Oh Cherry, this is fabulous! I am so glad you explained how you made the little pin cushion with the Be Stylish corset - that would have driven me crazy not to know :) Absolutely gorgeous! I love it all!
