Flowers for a Friend


Hi everyone.  Here is my design team card for the latest challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More #44 - Addicted to CAS.  I made a little vase of flowers for a friend ... hope you like.







Prize:  2 sheets of digis (8 images)
(please follow the rules of the challenge to be eligible to win)

Whoopsi Daisy will be sponsoring the whole month of May 2013



Stamps:  Sentiment Sampler (Paper Smooches); leaf sprig (unknown)
Paper:  White, Summer Smooches DP (SU!)
Ink:  Old Olive (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Vases dies (Papertrey Ink), Real Red buttons, White Baker's twine, Stamp-a-ma-jig, stylus and mat, post-it note mask, glue dots, and dimensionals

I die cut the vase and shaped it using my stylus and mat.  I did a dry-fit onto my card front to figure out where I wanted the vase to be and then masked off the top and stamped three leaf sprigs.  I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement of the sentiment.  The card front is popped up from the card base for more dimension.



Here's a close-up:





I hope I have inspired you to join us for this fun challenge.  Check out the other fabulous creations by the Design Team at ATS&M!

Hi Diana. I didn't keep the packaging, but I also bought the matching stamps and they are called Mega Gracious Vases ... hope that helps. Loll xx

What a bright a cheery card Loll! LOve that vase and the sentiment is so cool (love that font). I wonder if the SU punch would work for the vase....hmmm. I'm already trying to figure out how to case this (like Shana) :o) with what I have on hand.
