My mum got this:
My grandma got this:
My aunt got this:
And my mother-in-law-to-be got this:
I had a lot of fun making these wall hangings. I used the cork and painted it with white acrylic paint. Whe the paint dried, I stamped on the cork bard with Viva decor floral embellishments clear stamps. I used different ribbons from my stash. The butterflies are MS Monarch butterfly punch. I made the flowers myself, using the Tim Holtz Tattered florals die. For the big rose I followed this tutorial, for the small roses this tutorial and for the brown flower I used on the wall hanging I made for my mum I followed this tutorial here. I received this Tattered florals die from my sweet (and very creative) friend Rosie - thanks a lot hun! I loved making flowers with it. :)
Here are some more flowers I made with this die (following th tutorials mentioned above) ...
And the flowers, which I made up myself - using this same TH dies (I haven't seen any tutorials for flowers like this online, but if it exists, feel free to let me know; or if you want me to do a tutorial, just let me know).
Ok, so much from me today. Have a wonderful day and happy holidays! :)
