Art Impressions and Christina Griffiths hexagon flowerpot get well card

Hello there and I hope you have enjoyed this bright, sunny day. At least I hope it has been sunny where you are! I'm here to share another challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More, and this time we have a photo to inspire you.

Sadly, I don't have any succulents stamps, so I went with flowers for my pot, and I loved stamping each little flower separately.

1) Die cut a medium stitched hexagon from the Fancy Nesting Hexagons by Christina Griffiths in white card. Then cut the largest die in green card and run it through again with the scroll pattern cut in die.

2) Stamp the pot from the Art Impressions Watercolour stamp set and then stamp it again on a post-it note and cut it out to use as a mask.

3) Colour the pot with Zig Clear Colour Brush pens and then mask it off while you stamp the flowers and foliage. I used a variety of leaves and flowers and stamped them using my Ziggies directly to the stamps until I had a pot of flowers that pleased me, and I then removed the mask.

4) Place the green hexagon on the base card and raise the flower panel onto it using fun foam.

5) Finish off by embossing the greeting from PTI Fillable Frames #10 in white EP, and cut it into a half banner shape.

Those Art Impressions stamps have been languishing in my stash for far too long, and I really enjoyed using them so you may see them pop up again soon.

There's lots of inspiration over on the ATSM blog, and I can't wait to see how you will be inspired by the photo.

I'd love to play at

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - All things bright and beautiful.

Penny Black and More June Challenge  - in the garden.

As You Like It challenge - Flora or Fauna and why. I chose flora because I had not used these stamps for ages and rediscovered how much fun they are to stamp.

Thanks for stopping by.
