Friends are flowers

Hey everybody! I hope you’re having a great week and it’s not too hot yet where you are! It’s definitely getting warm here but we don’t have much humidity so it never feels as warm as it does in other places with higher humidity levels. I was asked by Becca, the owner of FarmQuest Challenge Blog, to be a guest designer for Theme #7 – Barrel AND Watering Can, Pitcher or Bucket. Of course, I said yes, so I created a pretty friendship card featuring the Bearly Art Flower Barrel SVG and the pitcher from the Simply Crafty SVGs Pitcher of Flowers cut file. I also used sentiments from Trinity Stamps Friends are Flowers and Supporting Script Sentiments stamp sets.

I started by creating the main card element using my Scan N Cut, the Bearly Art Flower Barrel SVG and CutCardStock Basis Black, Basis Brown, Basis Magenta, Pop Tone Jellybean Green, Pop Tone Spearmint, Pop Tone Cotton Candy, Pop Tone Banana Split, Shadow Gray and Scottish Highlands Green cardstock. As I always say, the most fun of working with SVGs is putting the projects together, and I really enjoyed this one! I also cut a flat pitcher from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Lagoon using the Simply Crafty SVGs Pitcher of Flowers cut file and embellished it with some Eyelet Outlet pink gemstones and a die cut flower that was out on my desk.

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding landscape card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel and strips from two coordinating patterned papers from the The Paper Studio Four Seasons and Everything In Between paper pad (one of my all-time favorites). I also cut narrow strips from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Lagoon cardstock and adhered all the panels and strips to the card base. I added the flower barrel and the pitcher, along with a sentiment (and stamped and colored butterfly) from the Trinity Stamps Friends are Flowers stamp set, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut with the coordinating Trinity Stamps Friends are Flowers die set. The finishing touch was adding some Eyelet Outlet green pearl bling.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips cut from the patterned paper and Lagoon cardstock used on the front. I stamped the sentiment from the Trinity Stamps Supporting Script Sentiments stamp set in black ink and layered the panel on Lagoon cardstock.

And one more look… really loving how this card turned out and how well it fits the theme for the FarmQuest Challenge Blog guest gig!

Friends are flowers

Hi friends! I hope your week is going well and you’re staying healthy and creative! Absolutely no complaints here – I’ve gotten a lot of studio time in lately which makes me happy! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m thrilled to share my first project as a Trinity Stamps Ambassador! We haven’t gotten our official assignments yet but have been given the go-ahead to share whatever projects we want to create until the assignments roll in. So I created a pretty front step card (you know how I LOVE this fold!) featuring the Friends are Flowers stamp set and the coordinating Friends are Flowers die set! I sure do love me some gnomes and I’ve added several of their most adorable gnome stamps and dies to my stash!

I stamped the image from the Friends are Flowers stamp set on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, colored it with alcohol markers and cut it with the coordinating Friends are Flowers die set. I adhered the die cut image to a white stitched oval die cut, adding shimmer to the butterfly and popping it up on an Adhesive Foam Circle. I cut a slightly larger stitched oval from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock and adhered it beneath the white oval. I cut the card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and panels from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock and yellow and white dotted cardstock, and assembled the card. I stamped the sentiment on Solar White cardstock, cut it with the coordinating die, and adhered it to the bottom of the card front.

I cut the back panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of yellow dotted and CutCardStock Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock, stamped the sentiment from the Succulent Banner stamp set and layered the panel on the red cardstock.

And one more look… I absolutely love this stamp set! Such a cute guy! ;)
