Happy mothers day with Nature's Perfection from Stampin' Up

The Stampin' Up yellows come into their own at this time of year as crafters think about spring and Easter. Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, So Saffron... they're all such a lovely, positive shades and with this surprisingly warm, spring weather we're having, I'm embracing it too! Come and see:

The large flower from Nature's Perfection looks great in yellow and I've made a whole bunch of them for Mothers' Day by stamping several on the card panel and then adding another fussy cut one, popped up with dimensionals.

The flowers look pretty watercoloured in shades of yellow. I stamped the outline with Crushed Curry, painted in the shadows with Daffodil Delight and finished off with a wash of So Saffron. The leaves are punched out with the Bird Builder punch - such a useful addition to your punch collection!

I'll be linking this card up with Less is More where the challenge is to make a card using yellow and green.

It's Mothers Day this Sunday in the UK but never mind mothers for the minute - today is all about sons! It's my youngest son's birthday today and although he's doing all the usual sleep overs and what not at the weekend, this day after school is reserved for family feasting and games - so I'd better get on with the preparations then! If you'd like a peek at how I wrapped his presents and made his card, do join me again tomorrow when it will be another fabulous Stampin' Up Artisan blog hop day! Hope to see you then,

  3. Gorgeous colors and so springlike. It warms me because up here it's been far from warm! Spring must be confined to the south for now ;) xxx

  4. A beautiful card for a Mum or anyone, it is so bright and cheery.

    It was my birthday this week too, so he must be a dreamer? Wish him Happy Birthday from me please.

  5. Beautiful, elegant and super duper stunning Vicky
    Thanks so much for sharing and taking part.
