Mama Elephant Highlight: Lovely Mums

Good morning! Hope you're having a lovely Saturday. Today, Mum's the word with Mama Elephant's Lovely Mums set. I created a card with some ombre stamping on the solid bloom. I find ColorBox Cat's Eye Queue Inks have been easiest to handle and achieve the soft ombre results. I then added a label-like strip, cradled the flower with a gold doily from Knot & Bow, and finished it off by stamping "Mum" in a similar pink, and sprinkled some sequins. Mother's Day is right around the corner and I'm looking forward to handing this card to my mum.

Materials used: Mama Elephant Lovely Mums stamp set, Memento Tuxedo Black InkColorBox Cat's Eye Queue Inks; Knot & Bow doily, sequins

What beautiful flowers for beautiful ladies in your life!

Make sure you check out the Mama Elephant blog to see what the rest of the DT created!

  1. This card is such a stunner. I have been in love with this colour combo for a while so that grabs me straight off! Then the sequins - another addiction met here! And finally, that beautiful coloured mum, and that gold doily - wow!! I now am hankering to use a gold doily on a card!! Great work Pearl!!

  2. OHHH! I just love that gold doily with this flower! FUN use of sequins!! YOU ROCK:)

  3. Pink flower, gold doily, and silver in a tiny sequin are new color combination for me but it is perfectly done in your card.
    I am so glad that I found your blog from ME. I follow you now. :D

  4. SO pretty! Sequins & doilies....LOVE!!
