Chrysanthemums, Emerson, and BLOG CANDY

One of my mom's favorite fall flowers are chrysanthemums, so I couldn't resist this stamp from Rubbernecker. It reminds me of my Grandma's garden and high school homecoming (in band, our senior year, every senior was giving a HUGE yellow chrysanthemum with a Pipe cleaner letter M on it).
As the temperatures get cooler, I look forward to seeing these flowers in my garden (that my mom comes and plants for me to ensure their survival).
A Friend
The flowers are stamped with Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Dried Marigold, and Worn Lipstick Tim Holtz Distress Ink. The Leaves (happens to be a birch leaf) was inked in Scattered Straw and then the edges were inked with Shabby Shutters then stamped off before stamping.
Materials Used:
  • Stamps: Emerson Quote by Rubbernecker, #5021-E solid birch leaf by KK Originals, and Chrysanthemum from Stamp Oasis: all from Rubbernecker;
  • Inks: Walnut Stain, Scattered Straw, Shabby Shutters, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Dried Marigold, and Worn Lipstick Tim Holtz Distress Ink;
  • Paper: Whisper White (SU!); Coral and Lime cardstock Bazzil; Patterned paper Savannah from the Southern Belle line (Daisy Bucket);
  • Accessories: Hardware (Hobby Lobby); ribbon; deckle scissors (Provo Craft);
