I have a pretty spring colored die cut flower pots and butterflies card to share with you today using garden and frame dies by Rubbernecker Stamps. For this project I used the 5132 Rectangle Combo #2 OPC Die, 5147-18D Tulip Tops Die, 5147-16D Tall Terracotta Pot Die, 5147-05D Flower Stems Die, 5147-09D Flower Buds Die, 5147-08D Small Butterflies Die, 5152-03D Grass Set and 5118D Leaf Group Die.
I cut the pots using Alpaca cardstock and colored and shaded them using mini applicators and Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo ink. I started by applying a light coat of Wild Honey and then added darker tones around the edges and and top of the pots using Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo. I made sure I left the centers of the pots a lighter color to create more realistic pots.
I several sets of flower stems using Easter Grass cardstock and the flowers using Cotton Candy, Sour Lemon and Sour Grape cardstock. I formed the Sour Grape flower using my small tipped stylus and molding pads and attached them to the flower stems using glossy accents. I gently rounded the tulip heads using the larger stylus and molding pad and attached them to the flower stems using glossy accents.
Arranging the Flower Pots
I created the two smaller pots of flower by attaching the stems to the back of the pots using glossy accents. I started by attaching the front flower stems first and worked my way back adding taller stems. Next I cut a couple sections of the Leaf Group die, cut them apart and created a larger foliage arrangement in the tallest pot. I began with the shortest foliage branches and worked by way back adding taller branches until I was satisfied with the size to stand behind the two front pots. I attached purple flowers to the branches using glossy accents until it was full of blooms.
The Frame and Grass
I cut the frames die and attached the two largest sections together using double stick tape. I cut one grass section and attached it to the back of the frame using double stick tape. I cut thin strips of mounting tape, attached them to the back of the frame and attached it to the pink card base.
The Die Cut Flower Pots and Butterflies
I tucked the tallest post in behind the brass and attached it to the card base using mounting tape. Next I applied mounting tape to the back of the two smaller pots and tucked them in behind the grass and attached them to the card base and taller flower pot. I added several small butterflies to the scene for the finishing touch.
I appreciate you coming by today and I hope my spring flower scene using die cut flower pots and butterflies has inspired you to get out your favorite dies to make a scene of your own.
