Pals Guest Stamper: Ginger T.

Secret Garden Barrel inside st. on-001
Ginger Toivonen
, today’s guest stamper and a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals Community, told me she is anxious for warm weather and flowers–her inspiration for this fabulous flower-filled paper garden!   The barrel is patterned after the one in her yard.  Clever!

Genius!  I’m knocked out about the creative way she used the Stampin’ Up! Pop ‘n Cuts Card Base as well as Dress Form for the 3-D effect.

The front is a WOW! as well.  I’m lovin’ the little tabs the Pop ‘n Cuts Card Base makes for the closure.  Want to see more of Ginger’s WOW! Factor?  Plase head over to her Ginger Stamps Blog  for a real treat!

    Thanks to all of you for your kind comments. I love the Pop ‘n Cuts Die!

    Nancy the Dress Form is behind the barrel. it is cut down at about the waist so it doesn’t stick up. So, I used the dress form as the base to attach my barrel. hope this makes sense.

  4. WOW! Nice job!!! Thanks so much for sharing 🙂

  5. That’s it! Thanks to Ginger? I’m getting the Pop ‘n Cuts!

  6. What a cute and clever idea. My mother-in-law loves barrels for plants, she would just LOVE this. I’m going to have to do some thinking here!
