A Potful of Daisies

At the Minneapolis Regionals Event, I spotted the cutest card across the lobby as we swapped and waited for the doors to open. Luckily, my friend Niki held our spot as I chased after a demonstrated named Youa Yang. She had the coolest potted flower card! (I forgot to take a picture), but really, it was FABULOUS!

Immediately I decided we would make it at my next event--the Spring Fling Stamp-a-Stack. It's a little time consuming, so I created the pots in advance. You'd like to see it, huh? Here it is:



Stamps: Sincere Salutations
Paper: Pacific Point, Whisper White, Summer Sun, Creamy Caramel, Bashful Blue
Ink: Pacific Point
Accessories: Big Shot, Stampin' Up! Backgrounds I Texturz, Silicone pad, plastic plate, 12 x 12 paper cutter with scoring blade, 1/4 grosgrain ribbon, mini glue dots, 3/4 circle punch, Circle Scallop Punch, Paper Snips, Dimensionals, Key Tab Punch, 1 3/8 Circle Punch, Designer Label Punch, Soft Subtles brads, 1/16 handheld punch

Now, this card is cute on the outside, but here it is-- pulled out! It's a unique pocket card!



Cute as it and I'd love to take credit, but the Monday after the Regional Event where I spotted and swapped for this idea, Splitcoast Stampers.com had a cool technique challenge-
make a flower pot card. 

To make my copy of the card (Officially called a a CASE in stamper-world), I planned to make a template. Then, after looking at all the great samples popping up on Splitcoast, I went to a Tutorial on it by Stephanie Luhman. 

The only real trick is making sure you make the edges correctly. To do that, you place one corner of your card base on the line of your cutter and the other on the 1/2 inch mark. Slice and you're in!  

I wanted my Designer Label to have a backround, but hate cutting. So, I used my punches. I used the 1 3/8 circle punch layered on the Key Tab punch to make a matte! Love those punches!

Happy Stamping!
