Mother's Day Crocus

Did you know Mother's Day is coming up on May 8?  That's just 12 days away.

The background was made using the Sue Wilson Dotty Daisy embossing folder.  This embossing folder makes all these super embossed dots in the shape of flowers and leaves.  To make the dots stand out even more, I manually rubbed on some Creative Expressions Metallic Gilding Wax in Golden Light and Golden Lilac, applying it more heavily in the areas with no embossing.

The word Mother is from the Frantic Stamper Grand Mother / Father die set.  I cut it twice; once in a dark purple and again in a lighter purple so I could layer them on top of each other but slightly offset for a more dimensional look.

All of these products can be found at the Ecstasy Crafts store.


  1. such a pretty pot of flowers and I just love the background, almost has that tin ceiling look to it, Lovely!

  2. You have made the flowers in e pot look very realistic, and I love the embossing folder you have used, gives a great effect.
