While I love a vase of flowers, it’s always fun to mix up the container every now and again. This gorgeous pitcher of flowers is just stunning!!!
The flowers so all the work for this simple card. While coloring takes a little bit of time, this card is super simple otherwise. You could always stamp a few of these and color a few evenings while watching TV and then assemble them all one of the evenings. I used basic colors for the base so that the flowers could be just about any color. This makes it easy to mix it up!
I started with a Crumb Cake card base. Next, I added a layer of the Country Lane Designer Series Paper (2″ x 5-1/2″). For the focal point, I stamped the pitcher and flowers in Memento Black Ink and colors using the Stampin’ Blends! I am soooooo proud of myself for how this turned out. Stampin’ Blends really make you feel like an artist! Trust me, I am not an artist at all. That little swatch for the shadow is just that…..a little swatch…but it looks amazing! I used Light Crumb Cake for the shadow. The other colors I used were Dark Pool Party and Light Bermuda Bay for the pitcher. The cattails were done in Bronze. I used Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive for the greenery and artichoke. Isn’t that what that is??? Let me know in the comments below if it’s not! Daffodil Delight was used for the little beady things.
For a little more fun, I used the Detailed Trio Punch to round the corners before adding it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The little greeting on the bottom was stamped with the Country Home Stamp Set too! I stamped it onto Bermuda Bay and then punched it out with the Classic Label Punch. After adhering it on the card, I trimmed off the right hand edge.
Here are a few of the samples from those in my classes. I just love the different color combinations everyone used! Which one is your favorite?
