Window Box flower pot

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a very pretty birthday card using the Window Box Thinlits dies.

I cased this from Tina Rappe, who made one in pinks!

I adore Pool Party, Whisper White and Chocolate Chip as a colour combination!

The sentiment is from the Cool Treats stamp set. Don’t you just love the font? I love how the ‘Happy’ is capitalised and the ‘Birthday’ is italics!

Secret Garden Flower Pot

Hello Crafters,

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and ate loads of chocolate like me!!!

With all the lovely rain we have had over the past two weeks, it has certainly done wonders for my garden, so I wanted to create a card with loads of flowers and why not put them into a flower pot!

Secret Garden

I told you I was putting lots of flowers in and I don’t think I could fit another one, LOL

I have used the Secret Garden stamp set (#129144) and the coordinating Secret Garden Framelits (#129372)

I stamped all of the flowers in the stamp set multiple times in Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight

The leaves are die cut from Wild Wasabi card stock

Secret Garden

The flower pot is created using Soft Suede cardstock and the scallop trim is Bermuda Bay

The sentiment is from the stamp set, Petite Pairs which I stamped onto white card with Melon Mambo ink

Secret Garden

I layered nearly every flower except the first one or two with dimensionals to give it that real life look!

This was so much fun to make and it just makes you want to smile with the warm bright colour palette!

I must thank http://www.thecraftyowl.co.uk for showing me how to create this gorgeous card.

Flower Pot Card

Morning Crafters,

Here is my take on the Flower Pot card which has been around for years, but this is my first time creating one ~ I don’t know why it took me so long, when it was so simple!

I have used Soft Suede cardstock 9″ x 3-1/2″ then scored it at 3-1/2″ & 7″.

Fold in a zigzag and using a border punch, create the edge on the flower pot.

Measure in 1/2″ from each side at the bottom of the pot and mark with a pencil. Holding up the flap, draw a line from the pencil mark to the top corner to create the pot shape. Cut along each of these lines through the double thickness of cardstock.

Take some ribbon and tie it around the top of the flower pot (as shown). This holds the card together without any gluing!!!

Take a piece of soft suede card measured at 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ and a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock of 2-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.

Layer these on top of each other. This creates the section for your written message and slides into the pot.

Once you have this in the pot, decorate as desired, ensuring you cover the top part of the card and that some of the images sit in front of the pot.

HANDY TIP: It is also a good idea to lay this onto an envelope so as not to add too much height that it won’t fit into a standard size envelope!!!!

I have used Real Red, Coastal Cabana and the Fresh Prints Designer Series paper stack, along with the Simple Stems Stamp set and the coordinating Secret Garden Framelits. This stamp set and DSP are available from 28th January during Sale-a-bration!
