My Mum's Craft Shop Inspiration

 Good morning, GOOD MORNING! :)

Bright and breezy Wednesday. Thunderstorms all over the place. Hah.
It has been fantastic.

I had a brilliant start to the week. I had my first embalming class on Monday night. Holy, moley, it's gonna be a LOT of work, but I am SO looking forward to it!! I already have my teeth stuck right in. I was at a hospital appointment with my Mam yesterday and I took my first bit of work along and was making notes while sitting in the waiting room. Heh. Love it.

Anywho, I'm sure you'll here my waffle on some more about this all in future posts so strap yourself in for a roller coaster of emotions.

Today it's my turn to share some inspiration for My Mum's Craft Shop. I decided to use a bunch of my new My Favorite Things stamps and dies to create this CAS card. 

So I started by die cutting some white card stock with the Die-namics Wildflowers die and then stamping the Peaceful Wildflowers stamps using some marker pens. I allowed the ink to sit on the stamp for a little longer than usual, and then huffed on them. It produced a slightly.. watercolour look? Love it! :)

I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set onto some green cardstock and added some natural hemp cord to the two edges and laytered it over the top of the flowers. As for the kraft backdrop, I stamped the gorgeous woodgrain border pattern from Western Backgrounds in a kraft ink onto some kraft card. Using Versamark would give you the same effect.

Lastly, I added some gorgeous, bright, orange patterned paper from Echo Park as a backdrop to the rest of the CAS design. :)

That's all from me today. Thank you for stopping by. xo
