blossom party pot

Thought I would quickly share with you another of the cards we did at this month's card club today. It was a fun card to make - I've seen them floating around on the internet for quite a while and thought it would be a really fun springtime card to make. Once you know where to cut it was surprisingly VERY easy to make and looks fab! 


Blossom Party Flower Pot

Stamp Set: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Early Espresso
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade
DSP: Berry Blossoms
Ribbon: Whisper White Satin
Big Shot: Blossom Party
Extras: Paper Crimper

So I adhered the ribbon to the card as well as the piece of polka dot DSP. I made the flower pot into a pocket with one glue dot on either side top corner! Next I stamped the sentiment and then adhered that peice if Whisper White to the Early Espresso mat. At the to of this I added 3 dimensionals - centre top, then on either side slightly lower than the middle one - this is where I stuck my flowers I then slipped the insert inth the pocket and added some leaves to fill in the gaps. (I made my leaves by folding a piece of cardstock in half and cut a half leaf shape along the fold, while it was still folded I ran it through the paper crimper for some texture, when it is unfolded you have a beautiful leaf!) Once I had added my leaves I stuck the bow on in the gap left, and voila! as simple as that! 

Hope you liked this - sorry I haven't been very diligent with blogging this week - I spent the day today tackling my craft room - it went really well actually, Ive seen bits of floor and desk that I don't think I've seen for about a year! Woah *embarassed* anyway I am intending on having another good old crack at it tomorrow and then start organising my things - I really need to sort out some better storage solutions for my craft things - that's how it gets in such a mess because I get EVERYTHING out in order to use it...ugh! I've been pinning (on pinterest - my latest addiction!) solutions and ideas so stay tuned to see how my craft room turns out - maybe I'll even get the chance to take a few photos when its all done! I considered taking a photo of the carange that was the before shot but I was too embarrassed to have anyone see it! I'm just glad its looking so much better alreadY! Anyway I should stop babbling o and get cracking once again! 

Thanks for stopping by! 

Have a great day! 



  1. That's gorgeous, Amanda!! Could you make a start on my room when you've finished yours?!!!!!

    1. Thank you! haha...erm I think mine is going to take all of my tidying will power :S I'd much rather be tidying and all I can think is - how long is it really going to remain like this. Anyway I will press on! x

  2. This is so pretty and perfect for spring! Love the bright flowers!
    I'm going on a cleaning spree next week (spring break). Unfortunately, it's not my crafty area, but the rest of the house... Hopefully, I will finish with plenty of time for crafting (which also needs spring cleaning...)

    1. Thank you! I love the bright colours too! Totally loving Calypso Coral at the moment!
      Well, my craft room is looking heaps better but I haven't even started on the rest of the house - major spring cleaning needed! Hope your spring clean goes well next week and you get the chance to craft and play also! x
