Spring Planter Box Card

Hi there and welcome to addINKtive designs. Today I have a Planter Box Card to share with you.  After a bit of a craft 'slump' three challenges finally got me motivated and back into my craft room ... so a big thank you to all the DT members for their inspiration.

This card is similar to the one that I made for mum for Mother's Day but I changed the measurements slightly so it's a little shorter and have included a mini tutorial at the end of this post if you would like to make one too.



1.  Colour Challenge - Global Design Project #005

 
The colour challenge at the Global Design Project is just perfect for spring and I really, really love the combo!  I have included some Kraft Card Stock as a neutral for the construction of the planter box.


 2.  SUO Challenge - #132 Punch It Up

   
The second challenge that I have entered is at SU Only where the theme is to feature PUNCHES.  Here's my list of Stampin' Up! punches that I have used for my Spring Planter Box Card -
  • Pansy
  • Petite Petals
  • Bird Builder (Leaves)
  • Washi Label



3.  Theme Challenge - #17 Stamp Ink Paper - Floral

I'm excited to finally join in with a challenge at Stamp Ink Paper where the theme is FLORAL!

 


Mini Tutorial

 
1.  Cut two pieces of Kraft Card Stock, 2-1/2" x 6" (Score at 3") and four pieces, 3-1/2" x 1" (Score at 1/2" on the short side) and stamp the Harwood Stamp onto each piece with Crumb Cake Ink.
 
2.   Attach the legs to each corner of the base with Fast Fuse Adhesive.
3.  Cut three card inserts measuring 2"x 4" and score 1/2" from each end of the longer sides to make the flaps that secure to the inside sides of the planter box.
4.  Attach the punched flowers, leaves and other embellishments to the inserts with foam dots (Stampin' Dimensionals) and Multi-purpose Liquid Glue.
 
5.  The card will fold flat to fit inside a custom made envelope.  However, I've decided not to give this one away and use it to brighten up the desk in my office instead.


Thanks for stopping by,

The Stamp Review Crew - Happy Scenes

Welcome to the Happy Scenes Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop.  We are a group of international Stampin' Up! demonstrators that love to share just how much you can do with one stamp set.

If you get lost, just click on the banner below to see the order of participants for this round -

As I was preparing for this hop I was really lacking mojo and feeling a tad 'rusty'.  Nothing seemed to go right creating projects for this round (won't bore you with the details).  However, because I absolutely LOVE participating in The SRC Blog Hops and had to pull out of the last one due to the busyness of life, I was determined to ink up Happy Scenes and give it a go.  I finally ended up with two cards to share with you today.


1.  Stamping on a Photo

Have you ever stamped on a photo?  I love how it creates an instant background.  A few years ago I stamped quite a few sunrise/sunset photos with silhouette stamps and loved how they turned out.

My hubby and I were at Cradle Mountain, Tasmania this winter and were fortunate enough to experience the first snowfall for the season.  I took heaps of photos and chose the one below to create a Happy winter Scene -

The tree images were stamped with Early Espresso Ink onto the bottom right hand corner of the photo and the image was cropped to fit behind the die cut window.  The embossed bricks were sponged with Tip Top Taupe and Perfect Plum Ink.



2.  A Luminary Card


      
A centre step card was used as the base of my second card and I punched out a circle in the middle panel so the battery operated tealight could shine through.  The embossed bricks were sponged with Tip Top Taupe and Soft Sky Ink.  The vellum DSP is from the new Holiday Catalogue.

I hope you're enjoying the SRC Blog Hop!

Up next is Yapha Mason ...
