  • Today I am going to share another gift set using the Wonderful Watering Can  and the NEW! Stamp set:  Tending the Garden © 

    It is my favorite: Butterfly themed!


    I believe there is no such thing as too many butterfly or flower images, and ideas!

    This was a gift set for my daughter Alexa’s para (one to one teacher). She is beyond amazing, and has been with Alexa the last 4 years or so. I bought her some Butterfly Flower scented items from Bath & Body works, with a gift card to Borders book store. 


    As you can see it all tucked in there so nicely. Bath products are my most favorite gifts to give and receive (next to chocolate!)

    The packaging of the bath items inspired the colors and design of this set.


    As you can see for my spout today I just trimmed with cardstock and added some punched paper pieces for the holes. I wanted the focus to be on the butterfly image on top. SIMPLE!

    This set was created using one of our FIRST Pretty Printable Digital Paper collections:: Shutt-erfly and Fluttering-by. Be sure you check out our AMAZING collection of digital papers. They are SO affordable! I did a post about that HERE! Along with a video tutorial.


    My Wonderful Watering Can was created using Warm Apple Cider cardstock. I created some fun score lines again for a realistic look. The base covered with my Shutt-erfly  patterned paper, and tied it with some American Crafts ribbon.

    I added some prima rosed to the center.

    Now for the top of my Wonderful Watering Can , that was my main design focus.


    I used the Killer Curves Cut File, with the circle image from Well Preserved to make the sweet butterfly from Tending the Garden © as my main attraction. I LOVE the butterfly in this set.


    Now I also stamped the little rose cluster that is also in the Tending the Garden © set. It appears as if they are budding out from the large chunky Prima flower.

    Now for the card


    Using the watering can image, colored with my copics to be similar to my template, I created a card to match my gift set.

    I LOVE the flower image that is in this set. It is perfectly perfect!


    I did some masking with the solid leafy image to create the image in the label of my watering can. I love the addition of the brads along the watering can base. To keep with the coordination I added the little butterfly to my card as well.


    It is like it is just fluttering away……


    I was so in love with that little flower that I immediately made another card using that image!

    Bloom with Happiness


    How simply sweet is that? I just wanted a card that used the flowers as the focus. The are so delicate looking, and soft.

    I enjoyed coloring the flower buds, and used the little leaves from the set instead of the other leaves.


    The pretty leaves that make up my border and the butterfly are also from Tending the Garden © set. I used the flourish from teh Fanciful Flourishes set. It was that little something extra that I needed!
