Mother's day card & gift bag

Of course I finally order (and subsequently fell in love with) SU! Stippled Blossom just a month or two before they discontinue it. True I can continue to create with it for my own use, but I can't show my friends and have them fall in love with it too, because that would just be mean. But for everyone who already owns it, isn't it awesome? I know, I'm late to the party. As usual.

This is the card I made for my mom for Mother's Day. Her last name is Rose. Her favorite flower is Rose. So I thought this was perfect. 

I used the top stamp layer only, the stippled design. And I stamped twice with SU! Real Red ink to get the two tones. Same with the leaf stamp, only using SU! Wild Wasabi ink. I had done the old masking using a post it note trick. I had punched out a circle and masked where I wanted my sentiment. This sentiment is from Paper Trey Ink. 

The inside sentiment and shape around it is from CTMH. I have had it for a long while, so I'm not at all certain they still sell it. I stamped both the sentiments using my MISTI so that I could stamp them multiple times to get a super deep red color. 

This is the decorations I put on a plain kraft gift bag. I used some discontinued SU! Real Red ribbon to made the bow. 

I layered many paper and silk flowers from my stash and put a long since discontinued SU! brad through the centers of two of them.

Find inspiration everywhere! Go... Create something fun & fabulous. Enjoy!
