Flower Pot Card
Sorry for the extreme length of time in between posts on here. It seems like it's either feast or famine with my content around here. It's just been a busy, crazy week. Anyway, here's the ubiquitous flower pot card that's all over SCS. HERE is a great tutorial for you. I got my color scheme from THIS card by "jreks" on SCS. She used Regal Rose for the two darker flowers, though, and I used Rose Red (she used Rose Red for her flower centers). As I said, the dark flowers are Rose Red, all flower centers are Barely Banana stamped with So Saffron ink, the darker pink is Pretty in Pink, and the lighter pink is Pink Pirhouette. The orangy flower is Apricot Appeal. That's what drew me to jreks card in the first place. :) I sponged all of the flower centers with sponge daubers with their respective ink colors before I adhered the flower center behind the bloom. The leaves are a Marvy punch that I have had for years and the color is Kiwi Kiss. I used a small strip of Bella Rose paper for the band across the top of the flower pot. I used a (now retired) "mother" stamp from Everyday Flexible Phrases. The texture stamp is also retired. Color of the pot is Creamy Caramel. Finally, the flower is a Sizzix die from SU!
Thanks for looking! I have to make seven of these cards (mother, MIL, sister, and four for Gracie's teachers as a thank you). All of the flowers are already cut out with my Sizzix, just have to work on the rest. Thanks so much for looking...comments greatly appreciated! :)
