Hey! It’s Jill of Jill Cameron Creations. Today I’m sharing a 3D project. It’s a watering can with bunches of flowers. This project folds flat to fit into an envelope.
I’m using the Pop-up 3D Vignette Watering Can Bouquet by Spellbinders die set. This is simple to put together and the instructions are on the back of the packaging.
The various cardstocks I’m using is what makes this project pop. First, I used alcohol inks on Silk Glitter White Cardstock. Alcohol inks dry quickly so I thought this would be a good option for creating blue glitter cardstock with lots of variation is colors. I used several different blues with the blending solution. Each color was dripped on the cardstock just like you would if it was Yupo paper. I set it aside to dry while I die cut all of the other pieces.
The center of the flowers are yellow. I just drug a yellow ink pad across Neenah Solar White cardstock and die cut all of the centers from it. This gave an amazing texture and variation in color. The flowers are die cut from Basis Blue, Light Blue, and Medium Blue Cardstocks. The stems and leaves are die cut from DSC Granny Smith Apple Green Cardstock. And the watering can is die cut from Classic Linen White Pearl Cardstock which is so pretty.
I do have a few tips for you for putting the watering can together…
Start with the middle sections first and add the front and back after you’ve put the centers through the slots. This will allow you to get everything aligned correctly as well.
Glue the stems in place and stagger the height.
Add the leaves after you’ve put the stems in place so you can fill in where needed.
Don’t forget to head over to the CutCardStock shop and grab some of these beautiful cardstocks for your next project.
