Flower Pot Cards... 3 of 3...


Here is part 3 of the flower pot series...

As I mentioned earlier, using different stamps and papers can give you totally different outcomes.  I have changed the leaves in some of the following cards and have a look at how that gives you another option... 

This is the last of this session of flower pot cards that I have created recently, I am sure I will be making more of these beautiful cards!

Thanks for visiting,

Flower Pot Cards... 2 of 3...


Here is the second post of the flower pot cards...

The pots themselves can be stamped or embossed and even patterned paper gives you a totally different effect.

As you can see from the above picture, when I assembled the flowers in the pots I was careful to ensure that my completed card would fit into the envelope.

Be sure to pop back for the 3rd post in the flower pot series!

Flower Pot Cards... 1 of 3...


Today, I am sharing with you some of the flower pot cards I have recently created, I have made a few of these so will spread them over 3 posts...  I have used various brands of patterned papers, stamps, ribbons, brads and rhinestones. From memory, the leaves and the pot are Heartfelt Creations dies.

The pots are a double layer (Front and back) scored at the bottom and folded to create a pocket. The "Flowers" are removed from the pot and this is where you can write your message.

Then, the flowers just slide back in easily.

Using different stamps and papers allows you to create totally different looks.

Have a beautiful day,

White card base, layer of pale blue card, then a layer of embossed vellum.
The train and sign post are stamped onto white card, embossed in black and coloured with watercolour pencils and the top of the card torn. A torn layer of embossed vellum is attached below the stamping and seam binding wrapped around the panel, which is then attached to the card front. A label is attached over the ribbon and  rhinestones added. Bells, a button tied with gold thread and a large rhinestone are added to the top left, and stickles highlight torn edges and some of the embossed dots on the vellum.

White card base, paper layer. Trees and signpost stamped on to white card with black ink, coloured with pencils then embossed. This panel wrapped with ribbon and attached to card. The snowman is stamped to separate  card, coloured, fussy cut and mounted. A banner cut label is attached and two red bells tied with twine, and a couple of rhinestones finish off.

White card base , layer of gold foil card, then fancy frost paper shaded with pale blue. A diagonal strip of paper, edged with ribbon, attached over the top. The snowman stamped, coloured with pencils, die cut into a circle, matted with a blue scalloped circle was mounted to the lower left. A label and rhinestones were added.

Glossy accents was used to highlight selected parts of images on each card.

Just a little inspiration on how you may use these stamps.
