Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - A Mother's Love

Welcome to the May GSF Blog Hop!

Our theme for this month is A Mother's Love. I always associate flowers with Mother's Day. In my case, my kids and husband give me flowering plant packs so that I can plant my giant flower pots for my deck. Now, as I live in Evergreen, Co which is in the mountains outside of Denver, Co, I will have to move these plants indoors at night until after the 1st of June before I can actually plant my pots. Yes, we can get snow in May. 

Today I am sharing one of the Stampin' Rewards Host stamp sets that you can earn at a discounted price with a qualifying party or purchase (value: $18.00). The Garden Grandeur Photopolymer Image stamp set (price: $10.50), it has a total of 16 stamps and is a two-step stamp set (simply layer one image over another for fast and easy stamping with amazing results). I like to start with the outline image.

I stamped the outline flower image with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Then stamped the filler image with Fresh Freesia Ink. I stamped  1 large flower and 3 smaller flowers. I fussy cut the flowers out with my Paper Snips. I also stamped the outline flower images on some Post it notes to create a mask. I layered my masks onto a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Basic White Cardstock and stamped the Leaves outline images with Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the leaf filler image with Old Olive Ink. Using a Blending Brush & Gray Granite Ink I added some interest with the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks in opposing corners. I also speckled some Wink of Stella onto the card front. My card front mat is from another  Host Product, the Design A Daydream 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper Pack (value: $30.00) price: $18.00. 12 sheets of double sided paper. I also used this DSP for my envelope flap. The card base is Fresh Freesia Cardstock. The sentiment is from the Flowering Tulips Stamp Set. I also added a few Pastel Pearls to finish this card.

Now I am going to send you on to your next Mother's Love inspiration blog stop. I hope you enjoyed your stop here and will leave me a comment.


  1. That is an absolutely LOVELY card, Jan!! I completely overlooked that set and now I am thinking I may want it afterall!

  2. Yikes, snow in May. Here in the Netherlands we can have cold weather tile Ice Saints (12-14 May) and every year I have a discussion with my partner about when the flowers can stay outside :).
    I love your color combination and the way you used the mask. TFS
