Flower Pots for All Occasions

Flowers are a traditional gift for many occasions, they are a beautiful gift but it often bothers me that they wither and die after a short while. 

At my last Stamp A Stack evening I decided to give the Flower Pot cards that I've seen on various blogs over the years a try, but I wanted to create some for special occasions. As I am an expectant grandmother (and very excited about it too) I seem to be focusing on baby things and hence one of the designs I came up with is quite suitable to give for new babies.





The flowers are all constructed from die cut shapes using the Stampin' Up!® exclusive Blossom Party Originals Die. 

This is such a quick and easy method of creating the flowers as you just place  3 layers of different colour card on the die, make a sandwich with the two cutting mats, and wind it through the Big Shot. 

I have used 4 colours in the flowers on this project: So Saffron, Bashful Blue. Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink. The leaves are die cut with the Little Leaves Sizzlits Die ( Certainly Celery card)


The detail shot shows how I've layered the different blooms. I glued these together with the 2-Way Glue Pen. I love that for fiddly sizes. Then the flower centres are popped up on a dimensional and topped with a Basic Pearl. 


The flowers are then arranged on the top of a slider that sits inside the flower pot. Dimensionals are used to lift the flowers a little off the slider so they can happily fit over the front of the flower pot.


Stamp a greeting on the card and leave some room for your own message and you have a wonderful keepsake for new parents. I can just envisage it on a scrap page. Perhaps I'd better make one for myself so I can scrap it after my new grandchild arrives!

I'll be back shortly with the other Flower Pot design.

Until then 

Stay Crafty!

  16. First, I want to complement this site administrator for creating this platform I frequently get cold sores(which lasts for 5-6 days on my lips and its painful both physically and mentally) .. As a bodybuilder, I basically get outbreak due to the daily pressure and heat in the body.. Recently I stumbled upon my salvation. I found a herbal remedy to cure hsv completely, in just 4weeks ..

    I got to know about Dr Utu after seeing a lady's testimony online. I reached the doctor and I ordered for herpes herbal medicine. He sent the herbs to me and I started making use of them. In just 2days, the cold sores are cleared. 4weeks after medication, I went to the hospital for test of cold sores and it was completely NEGATIVE.

    By following every prescription, i was able to cure my cold sore in less than 4weeks. 100% natural herbs no after effect.
    Note: Please do let others know if this work for you.
    The doctor's email is drutuherbalcure@gmail.com
    Note : follow all instructions accordingly..

    If you are sure that you have benefited from this African herbs be courageous to inform others.
    Thanks in advance
