Spring Watering Can

Welcome to the JustRite Garden Tour Blog Hop!! You are going to be blown away by the inspirational projects you are going to see. These new stamp sets from JustRite are very cool!!! Just when you think that they couldn't do any better, they come out with sets like these.

For my project I made this adorable watering can. I got the template on Splitcoast stampers here: It was very easy to assemble. I added a border along the top edge using the Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace border punch.

I decided to use the Plant A Little Love Borders and Centers set. When I was trying to decide on a project I knew that I wanted to make some sort of flowers. That was when I decided that these borders and centers would be perfect for a flower center.

I stamped each center onto ivory cardstock using Memento Rich Cocoa and the borders were stamped onto yellow cardstock using the Memento Rich Cocoa. Then I diecut them using the Spellbinders Classic Circle Nestabilities.

To make my flowers, I followed the instructions shown here on Splitcoaststampers. Once the flowers were made, I adhered them to a wooden skewer that I colored with a green Copic marker. Next, I sprayed the flower with V2 vellum spray and sprinkled ultrafine glitter on each one. The leaves were made using my Cricut Expression along with the Plantin' Schoolbook cartridge. Each leaf was embossed using the Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls embossing folder.

This is a look of the complete stamp set. I know that I will be using these stamps for my Spring scrapbook pages.

Be sure to check out the JustRite Design Team blogs for some incredible projects using these new stamp sets.
