Love Deepens - M is for Mom - Spotlight Day 3


Today's stamp set sneaky peek is the black dress, IMHO, of this release. You'll know what I mean when you come to the release party on Friday night (April 15th, 9PM Eastern, 8PM Central, 7PM Mountain, 6PM Pacific, 3PM Hawaii) and see it for yourself. {wink}


I used two stamps out of the Love Deepens set for my split sentiment and that muslin fabric flower is made with the Floral Circles dies (about 3 of each size in the set), the leaves are from the Bloom and Grow set that was on spotlight yesterday.

TODAY'S PRIZE:
Love Deepens, Proverbs 31:28 Plain Jane and Elegant Leaves Die






How'd she make that?  I made the letter out of regular cardstock that was first run through the Stampin' Up paper crimper and then cut out with an adhesived sprayed letter template off of my computer. The rest was just a matter of measuring twice and folding and gluing once... well maybe I measured once and folded then measured again and folded a new strip of paper... you get the idea. I sponge distressed the edges and then sloppily added white primer gesso. It dried surprisingly fast so the decorating could happen within minutes! The muslin fabric flower was die cut from the Floral Circles Die a few times and then pierced through all the layers to push through a brad. I pulled out the craft ink spot in Cameo Coral and brushed directly onto the edges of fabric. To get it to stay "fluffed" up I squirted hot glue in a few spots and let it cool before letting go of the fabric on top of it. This explains the random post about glue gun labels from last week.
