STILL ADDINKTIVE - STSS - Vintage Verses Mini Flowerpot

This week at still addINKtive it is Part II of Spot That Stamp Set highlighting the Sale-a-bration sets - Vintage Verses, Madison Avenue & Feeling Sentimental.  I have used Vintage Verses:-


You may have noticed that Kathy & Lisa have used the same sentiment, but mine looks a little different.  That's because I used the digital version of these stamps, so I was able to remove the border & resize the imagery to a size that suited both my card & ticket tag perfectly!  Gotta love that.  :)

I thought I would make a new version of my flowerpot card, filled with geraniums.  The blooms have been die & fussy cut, & then each layer has been separated by dimensionals.  There is a magnet on the back of the pot so you can remove it from the card & place it on a metal surface.



You can also pull a hidden sentiment section out of the pot:-


If you would like to try this design yourself, you can find the link to my tute in this post.

We hope you can join in the fun at still addINKtive this week & show off your SAB creations!

This is just so clever and gorgeous Helen! I love your pot of flowers with the just because tag! The colours work beautifully together. I love the way you've used the embossing folder in a different way too. Your card is just brilliant!
