It's a Specail Day

Once a floral designer, always a floral designer! Imagine the joy I had when I discovered this pretty little Corner Shoppe Wooden Cart in the latest release. I knew immediately I would turn it into a flower cart. I didn't have a cart like this in my floral shop, but I would have loved a life sized one! The sentiment, from the Birthday Banners set, reflects the way I felt when I saw this darling new die. Let me take you back to the beginning and show you the process.

After die cutting the pieces for the cart, I colored some of them with Copic markers. The handles for the flower buckets are shiny silver paper. Next came the largest of the pretty Scallop Pinpoint Rings. It was cut from ivory cardstock. The center portion was ink blended with a soft blue.

I added these elements to an ivory card base that was covered with a Cortina Pinpoint Plate die cut panel. It's pretty as it is, but flowers made it even better!

The new Flower and Leaf Sprinkles die has a wonderful assortment of little blooms and sprigs. As you can see, I layered them up in the buckets, on the cart and on the ground. You can never have too many flowers! Also new in the shop is the Bunches O' Butterflies die. The sweetest little butterflies just the right size to visit my flower cart!

There are oodles of new dies in the shop that would look extra cute on this cart. Take a look at the Idea Book for some inspiration. My heart was with flowers, but I know there will be more to come from the team. Thank you so much for stopping by to pay us a visit!








Brilliantly done Lisa! I love all the texture on this beauty.

This is just the sweetest! Love that little cart and how you arranged all the florals! The background plate is just amazing too!

I always love your cards Lisa, but I think this might be my favorite of any card you've ever made...it GORGEOUS! It's all the tiny little details and each one is perfect...sweetest card ever!! Hugs. :0)

Wait just a minute... did you just replace our old Martha punch?? Ha! These little butterflies, and your darling flower cart are a match made in Heaven, Lisa! I'm loving every bit, and piece of your pretty creation!

Hi Lisa, This is such a pretty card, I love it.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

This cart and buckets was cute on it's own, but the flowers take it to an even higher level!

Oh, dear, that cart is wonderful, but the entire card design with all the parts you put together makes it totally amazing!

This is such a darling set and card I had to come over to get a better look. Wonderful job!

I'd love one of those old flower carts too, Lisa. You sure brought this one to life with all those wonderful flowers. And that coverplate die is marvelous with it.

Such a beauty with all the die cut layers, Lisa - love your flower cart!!

Oh my goodness! Your little flower cart is absolutely adorable, Lisa. Love, love, love it!

Love everything about this happy, beautiful creation!

This wonderful little flower cart is just the sweetest. I did not know you were a floral designer, but it makes sense with your eye for design and color. Every little detail of this project is wonderful right down to those tiny butterflies. What a special creation, Lisa. I could not love it more.
