Happy Tuesday all you lovely crafters. I'm here with my inspiration post for Dies to Die for.
Today I've used Gardner Gayle ....and I admit I had a little double take on her name here. I can't work out whether this is an actual misspelling of gardener...or a play on words, as Gardner is a quite well used surname. Whichever it is all that really matters is that she's a very beautiful image.
As Mother's Day or Mothering Sunday, in the UK is only a few weeks away, I thought this would make a delightful Mother's Day card, although it could equally be used for a birthday or thank - you card and probably various other sorts as it's quite a versatile image. But enough waffle and on with the pics! As usual there are links to products at the end of my post that will take you directly to that product in the store.
The stamp is one of the wonderful Saturated Canary collection from Little Darling's Rubber Stamps, drawn by the uber talented Krista Smith. I was tempted to colour her with Distress Inks as I really think she'd suit them, but my Copics have been feeling quite neglected of late, so I thought I'd give them some love.

I used design papers from the gorgeous Sofiero collection by Maja and I'm embarrassed to say that I've pretty much covered 2 of layers with embellishment! What a numpty I am. At least you can see one of them clearly used on the inside of the card.
I did mix and match paper companies here, something I don't do a lot as the textures and weights are often quite different, but here I just used some seed packets cut from Pion Design element sheets. I love these sheets for an inexpensive way of adding some interest to your cards and really 1 sheet will last you for several cards.
Well that's all from me today, I hope whatever you're doing you have a lovely day and I'll be back on Saturday with my very first GDT card for Kraftin' Kimmie....how exciting!! hope to see you there.
Have fun! : ) x x
