Have you ever noticed how tulips look alot like hearts? I used Walk In My Garden to cut the flower pot and the stems/leaves for flowers, but really wanted to add more dimension to the flowers than by using paper. That's when I decided to use some heart brads that I had in my stash. Before adding a mix of red, pink, and yellow "tulips", I adhered the pot and stems/leaves to a dark pink paper cut slightly smaller than the pink card base. Once I had the brads in, I adhered the dark pink to the card to "hide" the backs of the brads. I decided the card was still a little plain, so I added a small flower stamp on the top lip of the flower pot and added a pink border along the top of the card, made with a Martha Stewart border punch. ~Hoppy Crafting!
Kindergarten teacher by day, and self-proclaimed crafting nightowl. I enjoy long walks with my Gypsy, iced mochas, and salivate over the newest papers, embellishments, Stampin' Up products, and Cricut cartridges available. While I LOVE my job as a kindergarten teacher, I need a creative outlet in my downtime. For me, this comes in the form of scrapbooking, cardmaking, cake decorating, and other miscellaneous crafts. I am a woman who is forever 29. Artist. Married with furry and slimy children (cats, dogs, & fish). And, in case you can't tell by the blog name, I'm obsessed with frogs. :o) I'm ready to try new things...let's see where this journey takes me!
