I woke up early this morning and since I couldn't get back to sleep, thought I'd come down and write a quick post, as I do have a few projects to share with you this month.  

Our challenge for this month was to create something other than a square or rectangular card.  I started with the tulips from Set 491. I covered a piece of card in Super Adhesive Sheet and applied Snow White Flocking.  I stamped the tulips in black StazOn ink, then using daubers I sponged different Memento ink colors on to the tulips. After cutting them out, I thought they needed a vase or planter, and I searched my stash for ideas.

How about a pocket?

I used the smallest Spellbinders Pocket and Swirl's pocket die, heat embossed it with Sandstone embossing powder, and added some glitter to the flowers and details of the vase. 

I stamped "Just for You" from the same set, inside. Such a cute little note card to go along with a bouquet of flowers? 

Full directions, if you need them, can be found in the SNS Gallery right here.

OK, that's it for today! Will be back soon, with another different shaped card, see you then!



  1. Gorgeous tulips! I really want to touch them and feel the softness of the flocking! And the coloring is so great. Love them!

  2. A well inspired card Shona and I love your "pocket" container. Say hi to the SNS team for me!

  4. Wow, this is so creative and so cute. Love how you colored the tulips and all the glittery goodness.

  5. You always come up with such fun ways to use so many different products. Love the textured pocket and the multi-colored tulips.


Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share in part of your day. I would love to hear what you think about my latest creation!
