Mother's Day inspiration

 Here is some Mothers Day inspiration.
First I share with you a tag I made
with dies of the ideology line by Tim Holtz.
 The background is embossed with a sizzix folder
that I painted with vintage photo distress stain before
embossing. Than I also added some new distress inked
squeezed lemonade and copper perfect pearl mist.

I cut the body with sewing sewing room,
embossed it, added some versamark and 
sprinkled a little white embossing poder on it
and used my heat gun.

The body is decorated with a Michael Strong
mini cloisonné flower embossed in cold and 
a button from the sewing room die.
Also I cut scissor and button with sizzix sewing edge
out of grunge board. Colored the scissor with
weathered wood distress stain and rock candy
stickles on top. Fastend it with a brad on the tag.

Banners decorated with a printed sentiment and
stapled to the tag.
All completed with ribbons on top and 
a cute little wooden spool and asewing
machine charm.

Here is an  another card. This can easily be
used as a gift card and is very easy to make.
I found this as a free printable card here:

 If you go for easy and quick,
you follow the instructions on the link above 
and you have a quick card.

I had to make it a little more personal and
After cutting out the card, you have 4 corners left of
the backside paper and this is perfect to stamp
the 4 flowers.
 I ambossed them in white, gold, copper and black.
The heart is a gemstone,
Here you see the inside of the card and
also here the flower stamp is used. With vintage photo
I distressed the border of the card and stamped
the flower all around.
 This is the backside of the card.

Hope all your Mom's have a wonderful day!

Have a creative day!

Beautiful tag and card. I have yet to get the sewing die, but your tag may have inspired me to run out and purchase it!

Beautiful cards, Hetty! Love the way you used Tim's dies and embossing folders. I guess I need the sewing border now! It's one of the few I don't have.

Hetty, these are so beautiful! I love the base of the tag with the stains/embossing... it looks incredibly rich. And the card's a stunner. Happy crafting!
