Springtime Petal Cone

Yes…still wishing for spring!  lol!  We've started Week #3 over on Create with Connie and Mary Occasions Edition and this week we are featuring the Springtime Vintage Suite series in the Occasions Mini, including Baby Blossoms, Build A Blossom, Thanks for Caring, Baby Blossoms, Easter Blossoms and the Springtime Vintage Designer Paper and accessories!  Lots of choices!  The Design Team have come up with some great projects for our subscribers this week!  But…you must be a subscriber of Create with Connie and Mary to see them! 



My Club Members made this Petal Cone last month at our Club Meeting and since it fits the theme, I thought I'd show it to you this week!  It is hard to see from this view, but I stamped the Cherry Blossoms branch from Easter Blossoms Stamp Set randomly with Baja Breeze Classic Ink on the Baja Breeze Cardstock after running it thru the Big Shot with the Petal Cone Die (you need to cut TWO of these to make the cone).  The scallop crescent piece under the flap is also from the Petal Cone Die and I cut two of them with Very Vanilla cardstock to place under the flaps at the front and back.


Then I used the Fun Flowers Die and Springtime Vintage Designer Paper to make the medium sized flower and Very Vanilla cardstock for the small flower.  I ran the small Very Vanilla Flower back thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder.  The center was cut from Baja Breeze on the Fun Flowers die, too, then I added a Vanilla Rosette with a Pearl in the center of it!  Lots of little details!  I placed the flower on the front of the cone with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I used Very Vanilla 3/8 Taffeta Ribbon to make the hanger, punching the sides with the Crop-A-Dile, then tying the knots on the inside.


Finally, I stamped Sending Springtime Smiles in Not Quite Navy Classic Ink on Very Vanilla and punched with the Large Oval Punch and layered on the Not Quite Navy Scallop Oval Punch.  Isn't it pretty?  I love how it turned out!  Fill it with candy or potpourri for a very nice gift!


It's not too late to join us for Create with Connie and Mary Occasions Edition, we are just beginning Week 3 of our subscription!  You will be able to access all the past projects we've done and see all the new ones we've yet to show!  We also leave the site up indefinitely for you to use the ideas in the future!  With a price of $29.95 for over 30 projects, that is less than $1 per project!  We know you won't be disappointed!  Join today at Create with Connie and Mary!
