Flower Pot Note Cards

I made these cute flower pot note cards to fit inside my Note Card Armoire. You can make the flowers and the armoire in any color you like. Wouldn't this make a cute mother's day present or girly gift?

Can you guess which die I used to create the flower pots? No peeking! Think about it and then scroll down to step #2 to see if you were right.

Flower Pot Note Card Tutorial


Step One
1. To start out with stamp, cut and/or punch out the following pieces:
  • 3 flowers: Petite Petals Stamp Set stamp in So Saffron, Coastal Cabana & Tangerine Tango ink on Whisper White. Punch with Petite Petals Punch
  • 3 flower centers: Star from Merry Mini Punch Pack in So Saffron, Coastal Cabana & Tangerine Tango (see step 1a)
  • 4 leaves: Light Bulb from Merry Minis Punch Pack in Wild Wasabi embossed with Square Lattice Embossing Folder (see step 1b)
  • 3 stems: Cut 3" x 1/16" strips in Wild Wasabi

1a. Use back end of piercer to round the middle of each flower center on a Stampin' Pierce Mat.

1b. Run a scrap piece of Wild Wasabi Card Stock through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. Punch out four leaves with the light bulb punch


Step Two

2. Cut a 2-1/2" x 2" piece of Sahara Sand Card Stock and run it through the Big Shot with the bottom of the Dress Up Framelits. Did you guess that the flower pot was made from the bottom of one of the dress up framelits?


Step Three

3. Then run this piece through the Big Shot with the Scallops Embossing Folder.


Step Four

4. Put three strips of sticky strip on the back of the flower pot piece.


Step Five

5. Remove the sticky strip liner and adhere the stems to the back of the flower pot.


Step Six

6. Stamp a greeting on the bottom of a Whisper White Note Card. Adhere the flower pot just above your greeting. Note: You will not need any additional adhesive on the flower pot if you used sticky strip like I did in Step 4.


Step Seven

7. Place a pearl in the center of each flower.


Step Eight
8. Place the note cards inside a note card armoire or other cute container (for the Note Card Armoire Tutorial see HERE). The Note card Armoire can hold up to 10 note cards and envelopes. Happy Stamping!

Minute Mondays: You're So Sweet DS

Minute Mondays, where I showcase quick cards

Today's Minute Monday card is dedicated to the Stampin' Up! Demo Support team during Demo Support Appreciation Week. Demo Support is who demonstrators call when we have a question, need a problem solved or need clarification on anything Stampin' Up related. The really amazing part is that they always help out with such a cheerful attitude. It's a pleasure to call them anytime. #WeLoveDS

My concept for this card was to make the greeting pop against the black with vivid colors. I did so by embossing the words more than once and paper-piecing them together. I loved how the black card turned out so much that I decided it would be fun to make one in white. Then I couldn't decide which one I liked best, so I sent them both to demo support. What do you think? Do you like the black or white one best?

To find out more on how I made this card keep scrolling down. Find out the supplies you'll need to make this card and where to get them HERE!


To create this card start off by embossing "You're so Sweet" from the Countless Sayings 2 Stamp Set in White Embossing Powder on the corner of a 3-1/2" x 5" piece of Basic Black Card Stock.

Also emboss "You're so Sweet" in White Embossing Powder on a scrap piece of Coastal Cabana Card Stock.

Cut out the thickest piece of all the letters from the Coastal Cabana Card Stock scrap and adhere them on top of the letters on the Basic Black piece.

Also emboss the heart from the Countless Sayings 2 Stamp Set in White Embossing Powder on a scrap piece of Strawberry Slush Card Stock and cut it and adhere it to the card. Then mount the Basic Black card front on a note card. Happy Stamping!
