Social Stamping Blog Host - Family

Hi there, I’m so glad I had the chance to take part in the latest Social Stampers blog host.

Today, from the Social Stampers we are sharing our creations with the theme “Family” for this week.

As it’s Mother’s Day tomorrow I thought I would share just some of my cards that I have been creating for our little family business at YV Hampers. We source the best produce of the Yarra Valley and showcasing them into premium gourmet hampers. They are just perfect for a Mother’s Day gift and we love to support our local community. Below is just one of our many hampers and a Mother's Day card that I have created.

Spending time together with the family is very important, but unfortunately with COVID-19 this has made it very difficult as I would so love to see my parents who live in the country. I hope this day will come soon, but for now it will be a phone call or maybe a Zoom meeting.

The cards I have made is featuring the beautiful Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper which is from the 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. I just love the hand-painted impressionistic imagery in rich colours and I’ve used the colours by using Cardstock and Ink.

I’ve used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies for the Mother’s Day greeting and coloured Cardstock. These Dies have various shapes and sizes which makes card making creative. They are also caring over into the new 2020 – 2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue which I’m very happy they are staying on.

This card I’ve used Night of Navy for the Cardstock and Ink.

This card I’ve used Mossy Meadow for the Cardstock and ink.

This card I’ve used Blackberry Bliss for the Cardstock and Ink.
