Mother's Day Flower Pot Card

Since Sunday was Mother's Day, I needed to make a card for my mom! She has always liked flowers. I have seen a lot of the flower pot cards created by many different people and thought I would give it a try. Once again, my inspiration was from Pinterest, which was a video. You can see it here.
After making this one, I do believe, I will make more. They are really fun and turn out beautifully!

Stampin' Up! supplies needed:
Cardstock: Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green, Whisper White
Ink: Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple
Writing: MDS2
Tools: Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, Pansy Punch, Petite Petals Punch, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Big Shot, Little Leaves Sizzlits Die, Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder, and Stampin' Sponge
Accessories: 3/8" Midnight Muse Stitched Satin Ribbon

Do you know what I just realized? I was going to use the candy dots for the middle of the flowers. Guess what? I totally forgot to put them on. Well, it is way too late now. If you make one, try not to make the same mistake. It would have given it a little more bling, especially if it were a rhinestone or pearl. I am sorry I forgot to put them on.
Thanks for looking. You may leave a comment if you would like. Thanks!
Now go-n-stamp!!

Flower Shop Meets Off the Grid

Welcome to my blog. I hope that you will enjoy visiting and leave inspired by what you see. There is so much satisfaction in making something yourself to give away.
The card that you see here was made for a lady that placed an order from me for Stampin' Up! supplies.
I really need to make a light box. The reason being, once again, this card looked so so so much better in person. The lighting makes such a difference in how something shows up. 

 Stampin' Up! supplies needed.
Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Island Indigo, Whisper White
Classic Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Night of Navy, Tempting Turquoise, and Sahara Sand
Stamp Sets: Flower Shop, Petite Petals, Gorgeous Grunge, Teeny Tiny Wishes, and Off the Grid (retiring)
Tools: Petite Petals Punch, Pansy Punch, and the distress tool
Accessories: Regals Candy Dots

I liked this card so much that I wanted to make another one. I can't say I always feel the same way about every card I make.
Have a beautiful day and thank you for visiting.
