Easter Flowers

...in a vase made with a punch.

The Lily flowers are part of the Easter Messages stamp set, as are the palm fronds.  Put them together and place them in a vase and you have a wonderful Easter Bouquet.

The flowers were masked before stamping the 2 palm fronds.  I coloured them using SU markers.
A vase was made by punching one image in Daffodil Delight using the Best Badge punch and altering the punchie to make it look like a vase. See the picture below.  The dotted lines on the punchie on the punch indicate where I trimmed it with the scissors so that it looks like the punchie lying beside it.

To decorate the vase, I used two of the stamps of the Delicate Details stamp set, and cut out a coloured lily and adhered it to the vase center. Dimensionals adhered the vase to the card front.

I love sponging edges of almost everything.  Sponging gives the images such definition and a finished look. I sponged the edges of the vase, the flowers, and the edges of all the papers making up the card.

Three more coloured lilies were cut out and 2 were adhered over the original lilies; the 3rd just peeking its head over the top of the vase.


After adhering the art piece to a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock, a piece of 1/8" stitched Smoky Slate ribbon was slid under the vase between the dimensionals and adhered behind the Daffodil Delight card stock. A bow made of the same ribbon was placed on the right side.

The Whisper White card base was layered with a Smoky Slate layer, upon which a strip of Scenic Scenery DSP was added. Dimensionals adhered the art piece to the card front.

What's a card without bling? Dazzling details was applied to the flowers and the vase as well as Wink of Stella.  In addition I added metal rimmed rhinestones and smaller rhinestones.
