Something Different


Good Morning! I hope everyone had a fun long weekend. Can you believe I didn't stamp at all. I do have something fun to share. I made this vase of flowers all from card stock. I started with choc. chip cardstock, ran it through my xryon to adhere the BG blush paper. I molded and shaped it forever!! I used red sticky tape to hold it together at the seem. I stuffed the vase with gold tissue paper and some spanish moss (the green kind) I stamped and colored the flowers from my FPD Simply Stated set and cut them out. The leaves are from SU! Wild Rose set. I wired and glued the flowers and leaves and made my flower arrangement. After getting the right height for each flower and leaf I dipped the wire in craft glue and put it in the vase. I let it sit over night.I finished it off with a ribbon and bow a glue dot holds the spiral clip and tag.

Stamps: Simply Stated, Wild Rose, Vases in Vogue
Paper: Choc Chip. BG Blush, WW
Ink: Mellow, Artichoke, Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Black, Choc Chip
