Bill and Ben, eat your hearts out!

If you are a card blog surfer like me, you will have seen some Flower Pot Cards around on a number of overseas sites, and wow! how darn stinkin' cute are they? I finally got around to trying them and I LOVE THEM!!!!! They are smaller than they look in the photos and so incredibly adorable! You can use so many different flowers and colours and patterns ... the list is endless. If you haven't tried one of these, I recommend you do (look for the tutorial here at splitcoaststampers) and you will find they are VERY ADDICTIVE!

Here are my trial ones:

Then I tried one with native flowers, but the proportions are all wrong and it doesn't work, unfortunately.

DD17 loved my first one and asked for one in her favourite SU colour, Ballet Blue. Here's her flowerpot:

I can see I might have to find a way to wangle these in to a workshop or two in the near future .....!!!

Thanks for stopping by. Incredibly cold here today, so I hope you are keeping warm, wherever you are.

Fab pots Kez! I love how you finished off that first one with the dots CB folder and the MS border punch. I've done a few of these myself and agree they are lots of fun. For another effect, you can try using the branches CB folder with the lines going sideways. We did that and loved it. I think I saw it on someone elses blog on a card and thought I'd try it on these pots. Anyway, I love the pink flowers you put on the first one. Perhaps if you just added a few more flowers to the second one you might like it better. I think it just needs to be a bit fuller. Love the design on the second pot, not sure if you stamped that or if it's a DP you used. It's gorgeous!
