Mother's Day Flower Tag

This tag was made especially for My Creative Time's Mother's Day FLOWER challenge! You have to use one of MCT flower stamps or dies. Hmmmm.... I don't have any of her flower stamps or dies so I improvised a little bit with some of the MCT things I do have to make them look like flowers. Hope this is okay for the challenge. Are you ready to see my Mother's Day flower tag?

I love how it turned out!  Here are the My Creative Time products I used:

  • Stitched Journal Die (tag base)
  • Stitched Bracket Dies ("grass" at bottom)
  • Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies (big flowers)
  • Hello Chickie (cracked egg die for "tulips")
Other products used:
  • Flower stems were hand cut by me
  • Cardz TV Stamps "Happy Days" for sentiment
  • Twine, ribbon, buttons, and dew drops all from stash

I also added some inking around the edges of everything in various colors.

Thanks so much for stopping by today to see what I am up to. Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
