Card

Pretty Basket of Blooms

How about a pot plant? This would be perfect to go with a planted pot gift – or for anyone who loves their flowers! Sadly my gardening skills mean I don’t have anything this pretty in my pots this year – but I do have some lovely yellow marigolds in the side border.

This stamp set and co-ordinating punch might be one you have overlooked in the catalogue. The punch was available as a Sale a Bration reward – but happily is now available to purchase, it means making pretty floral cards is so easy without the need to fussy cut. The set includes several containers…a pot, a basket and a vase, along with two styles of flowers that co-ordinate with the punch and a variety of leaves and flowers to use as accents.

I was pleased with my ‘terracotta’ pot too (well Cajun Craze). Stamping off a couple of times gave enough outline for colouring so you get a slightly more ‘no line watercolour’ effect. The Calypso Coral and Flirty Flamingo flowers look great together – perhaps a little unrealistic to have two colours and two different flower patterns on one plant…but that’s the beauty of craft….you can be as creative as you want!

As for my rhinestones…. I really do need to make sure that I use them more! The Stampin’ Up! ones are really sparkly 🙂

Sorry it is such a short post…. lots going on this week! Don’t forget you only have until 3rd August to get your Bonus Days coupons…give me a shout if you want to know more!
