For more tips on creating with the pocket dies, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/uDhKUj9AAMo. Instructions:
Card size:  6 X 6”.  Fold white 12 X 6 card stock in half.  Cut pink decorative Tulip paper to 5 3/4 X 5 3/4" and glue to card front.  Cut light green and pink decorative paper to 5 1/2 X 5 1/2” and glue to pink paper.  Cut another piece of pink Decorative paper to 6 X 6 and cut top and bottom with the Elegant Pocket Accents outline Die but only the top part (part of the bottom will cut but it will be covered) To cut only the top portion of die, place the top plate of your cutting machine just to the cutting line [about half way down die].   Cut 2 Elegant Pocket Accents out of white card stock and glue them to the top and bottom of the die cut pink paper.  Now glue this stacked die cut to the card. Randomly sponge adhesive all over card layers and then sprinkle with Ultrafine glitter.  Cut the Album tags and Accents label/tag inside and eyelet outside out of white card stock, stamp the sentiment using Magenta Hue on the inside part of the label/tag.  Cut another inside label/tag out of white foam sheet and let it “rest” (wait for some time to let it reshape).

While you are letting the foam reshape, stamp, flowers using Magenta Hue and sponge with the same and then die cut.  Run the flowers through you die cutting machine in the shaping mold after misting with water.  Stamp leaves using Fern Green, sponge with Leaf Green then die cut, use tools to shape the leaves and form a small cup shape at the top.  Punch each flower down in the center to make petals curl upward.  Use 2 flower blossoms to form each flower.  Set the flower inside the bowl you created at the top of the leaves and glue in place. Make 7 flowers, medium and small.  Glue the sentiment labels together sandwiching foam between layers then glue it to the center of card.  Cut some of the leaves off some of the tulips in order to curve them around sentiment a bit easier.  After gluing the flowers down, glue leaves where needed.  Make a small bow for the bottom of the tulips and glue to card.  Add Rock Candy Stamen in groups of 3 or 4, doubled and insert into arrangement.  White Flower Soft is added here and there by dotting with glue then pressing the Flower Soft into it.

I love this wishing well!
My second Tulip project is a wishing well made with a Bean Dip Can, Balsa Wood pieces and Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies.

Instructions:
Size: 5 X 6”.  Cut white cardstock and gray cardstock 2 1/8” X 10 ½” and emboss with brick folder.  Sponge with gray for some dimension.  Cover outside of can with white, the inside with gray and top with silver Liquid Pearls to close gap at the top.  Cut a circle for the inside bottom.  Punch 2 colors of green for grass at the bottom.  Paint 2 pieces of 1/2” X 5 1/2” Balsa wood white then drill a hole on each side about 2” down from the top.  Paint the 1/8” X 4 3/4" dowel silver, slip the hanger hardware onto one end after inserting through holes in the Balsa wood.  Glue Balsa wood to the sides of the can with heavy duty glue.  To make the roof, cut a piece of white cardstock 4” X 5”, fold in half to a triangle shape.  Cut 2 pieces of white into triangles for the ends (make the bottoms at least 3 1/8” to give a good slope to the roof and add about 1/8” on both sides of the triangle [not the bottom] to make tabs to glue to the inside of the roof.  Cut four 1/4" “planks” for the triangles (each side) and glue them on.  Cut 15 borders from Album Tags and Accents Die to use for shingles (alternate scallops on each row).  Edge each row of “shingles with gray ink.  Glue the roof onto the Balsa wood supports.    To make the bucket, cut 2 small circles approximately 1” (one for the inside and one for the outside) out of gray then cut the side of the bucket  1 1/4” X 3 1/2” score the 1 1/4" side at 1/4" and make cuts to the 1” mark (these tabs will glue to the outside bottom.  Once dry, glue the inside bottom in the bucket then cover top of bucket with silver Liquid Pearls just to finish off the top edge.  Punch a 1/16” pole on each side of the bucket and tie a silver cord for a handle.  Tie the end of a longer piece of silver cord to the bucket handle then glue the other end to the dowel around the middle area.  Let dry then wind the cord onto the dowel, (bucket can go up and down to desired height).

To make the climbing roses: stamp about 3 sets of the smallest Floral Fashionista using Rose Madder then sponge with Pink Peony, stamp 1 set with green and sponge with green then die cut.  Use the Petite Florals Shaping Mold.  Stamp the leaves from Window Box Fillers using Fern Green and sponge with Leaf Green.  Cut the leaves off and set aside.  On a piece of non-stick craft mat (or other) glue the leaves onto wires in groups and let dry while shaping flowers.  There are 2 blossoms for each flower, glue tightly together to form buds.  Cut the green blossoms so that the petals are slender and pointed, this will be the rose base sepals, glue these to each rose bud.  Glue the roses onto the wire (use heavy duty glue for the roses and leaves).  Let dry over-night then lift stem and wrap around the wishing well roof supports, glue here and there with heavy duty glue.

Stamp tulip cart, fence, and tulips using London Gray Ink and die cut.  Color each with Copic Markers (or your favorite coloring system).  Foam tape some tulips onto the wishing well, glue some inside the cart and some will be for the fence when the base is completed.  Foam tape the cart to the well.  Well is complete.

For the base: cut a piece of heavy chipboard to 5 X 5” and cover with green decorative paper.  Punch grass for fence and glue to the inside of 2 pieces of fence.  Glue fence to base on 2 sides (mostly) cutting and folding where necessary to make a small “gateway entrance”, glue some of the tulips to the fences.  Make a small mark with pencil, where the well will go then glue some Prills and Flower Soft to the base outside of where the well will go.  Glitter the ground, the roof and all the flowers.

Thanks for visiting!

The flowers are springing up, the season of singing birds has come, and the cooing of turtledoves fills the air.

The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever.”

As fast as spring comes, summer comes to dry but there is one thing that last forever and that is God and His word.  We can be sure of who He is and His word we can stand by.
