Well, it’s not Spring here at the moment, (in fact, this been a really hot, humid summer) but you can always appreciate pretty flowers!
I love Bronwyn’s Spring Planter Box Card with it’s pretty array of flowers.
I decided to use the Wood Textures DSP stack for the planter box part. I then used the Petals & More thinlits for the leaves. I then used the May Flowers framelits and the matching Falling Flowers stamp set. I used the Subtles collection cardstock to create a pretty bunch. These colours look so lovely together.
I made a slight mistake in that I got stuck into attaching the flowers and then realised that I had used the bottom of the planter so the pieces to attach the flowers are lower down. I had used fast fuse so there was no undoing! That stuff sticks well!
This tutorial is great to follow, and so easy to understand. Just click here to purchase it today.
These flowers are perfect for me as my pussy cats like to eat any flowers that come into the house!
I hope you like my planter box! Please leave me a comment and let me know.
Stampin’ Up! Product List
When my sister and I were young, we used to love colouring a book mum had, which had lots of quilt patterns in it. You were meant to use the book to see how your quilt would turn out in the colours you had chosen. We copied all the pages in the book so we could still keep the original and would end up with lots of different “quilts” in paper.
So now I can continue to colour in with my new Blendabilities pens. I love these pens, although it does take a bit of getting used to the blending part of it. But I’m getting better each time I use them.
I wanted to have a play yesterday with my Blendies, but didn’t want to spend ages colouring in the Blended Bloom stamp. It seems that I actually don’t have a lot of stamps suitable for colouring in (don’t worry, I’ve got it under control in my first order from the new catty!!) but I did find the Flower Shop stamp set which has a good flower for colouring.
Well what to do with it? I love a good sketch, so I headed off to Mojo Monday to check out their latest sketch. (You can check it their post here)
So their sketch is Tall and Skinny this week but I didn’t really want to do that. I also used my colour coach for a colour challenge and I went with Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow.
So here is the sketch.
And here’s my interpretation. You can’t really tell from the picture but I coloured the rhinestone with the Coastal Cabana bel
So what do you think? I’m impressed!!!
