stampinkpaper blog hop

welcome welcome welcome
this is the stampinkpaper blog hop for some mummy's day inspiration.

hello if you have come from our illustrious leader's blog miss michelle or started here

hopefully these ideas will inspire you make something handmade for a special lady in your life
 firstly i give you a skirt! 
yes i know...frightening enough i have been sewing..well actually no...i have been cutting out fabric and sticking to more fabric to be honest. i haven't actually touched my sewing machine. i used the circles #2 originals die and some fabric from the more amour and summer smooches range and our fabric adhesive (my new best friend)
 being a random kind of gal i randomly placed the dots all over a skirt i had picked up at a local op shop. all i did was ironed on the fabric to the fabric adhesive. then ran it through the big shot several times, peeled off the backing and placed them. then i plonked my iron on top and counted to 10 and took it off! woohoo all done easy peasy!

now to go with the skirt you need some accessories.
i have made up a few things to match the skirt...
a hairclip, necklace and ring
all using the fabric to make it all matchy matchy lol plus a nice card to write your special message in
 the card is very simple.
outside is some real red card with the polka dots embossing folder, added a black card strip with some fabric over it. then added a rosette made from fabric and a bit of black felt tied up with a button and baker's twine. 
 inside i have put a circle with arrows pointing to some of the words to highlight them.
 the hairclip is made from various circles of fabric and felt and a button from my button box. the hairclip was glue on with a hot glue gun
 the ring had a flat marble with some fabric glued to it with crystal effects stuck to it.
the pendant is just a simple square of the more amour fabric stuck in with some crystal effects.
a simple handmade gift that is easy to make for very little cost.
remember now if you want any of the stampin up stuff i have used here please feel free to visit our online store and purchase it. check out the button up at the top right of the blog :>
