Stamped Garden Gift Set

Stampendous introduced their Winter CHA release just a few weeks ago, and I was lucky enough to create a few projects using the new Cling Flowers stamps. How about a giveaway of one of the new Stampendous stamps?  All you have to do is leave a comment on this post by February 14th and I will randomly select one person to receive one of the new Cling Flowers stamps from Stampendous.

The flowers are gorgeous, and they inspired this gardening set which is perfect as a Mother’s Day or birthday gift.

Here is a side view of the box:

1. I started with a leftover box from clementines. It was easy to cover with a coat of white acrylic paint.

2. Stamp Stampendous flower images (Morning Glory, Nasturtium, Carnation, Violets, Sweet Peas, Seed Catalog) onto white cardstock using Jet Black water-resistant ink. Stamp Violets twice.

3. Color flowers using STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell watercolor pencils and a water brush. Let dry.

4. Tear cardstock around flowers. Sponge edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

5. Cut tissue paper to fit sides of box. Stamp Seed Background onto tissue paper repeatedly using Jet Black water-resistant ink. Adhere tissue paper to sides of box using Zip Dry Paper Glue. Sponge edges of box using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

6. Follow manufacturer’s directions to apply Fast Finish Decoupage over surface of tissue paper; let dry.

7. Adhere colored flowers onto sides of box with Zip Dry Paper Glue.

The clay pots close-up:

1. I bought two clay pots from the store and, since it was off-season, I actually got a good deal on them.

2. Paint fronts of clay pots with white acrylic paint. Let dry.

3. Stamp flowers of choice, one each, onto tissue paper using Jet Black water-resistant ink. Color images in same way as flowers for box. Let dry. Tear tissue around images.

4. Adhere stamped, colored flowers onto fronts of clay pots using Zip Dry Paper Glue. Follow manufacturer’s directions to apply Fast Finish Decoupage over each surface to seal image.

5. Apply VersaMark embossing ink around edges of tissue paper and along top of rim on first clay pot. Sprinkle wet ink with Stampendous Fran-tage Chunky White Embossing Enamel; heat emboss enamel. Quickly, while enamel is still hot, sprinkle same areas with Fran-tage Lavender Glass Glitter.

6. Repeat Step 5 with second pot.

Here are the plant markers close-up:

1. Die cut three Labels Twenty-Two shapes from white cardstock.

2. Stamp flowers (Nasturtium, Carnation, Sweet Pea) onto labels using Jet Black water-resistant ink.

3. Color images in same way as flowers for box. Let dry.

4. Sponge label edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

5. Apply brown Tim Holtz Distress Stain to three wooden plant stakes. Let dry.

6. Adhere labels to tops of stakes. Tie green fiber around stakes beneath labels.

7. To finish gift set, stamp Botanical Blooms Background using lavender ink onto full sheet of tissue paper. Assemble gift set as shown.
