Tuesday T&T Sign Post or Planter - Maybe Both!

Who says I don't see things sideways!!  I saw the Sign Post Die Set and immediately thought of  a planter with flowers growing in it.  Below is how I did it:


  1. I left the dies for Sign Post connected to do the initial die cuts on brown cardstock.  I re-spaced them on white cardstock so they would look more they had mortar in between.
  2. Grass was die cut twice for the stems of the flowers.
  3. Grass Border was cut for the grass around the planter.

  1. I used 2 dies from Spiral Flowers and one from Layered Floral.  I did the rolled flowers with vellum, but a little different from last time.  I still used the Tweezers.  A thin line of Glossy Accent (in the bottle on the left with the red top) was placed along the base from the second petal to about the fourth.  I started rolling from the outside toward the center.
  2. One of the glue dot, like those shown, had one side removed to be ready to use.  When I was at the end of the wrap I released it a little so the outside was looser.  Then I placed it on the glue dot, removed the tweezers.  The tweezers were used to curl the petals a little.
  3. The flower was placed it on one of the Leaf Clusters and then on the stems of the Grass in the planter.
  4. For the 3 petal flowers and leaves I used the Layered Floral die.  The flower petals were curled a little, mounted on the leaf "petals", then on the "grass" stems.


  1. I saved the cardstock from the "planter" die cuts and taped it in place on white cardstock with removable tape.
  2. Thinking of You from Hydrangea clear set was stamped with Bamboo Leaves.
  3. The die was laid over the area and a die cut was created.
  4. The edge of the die cut was inked with Memento Rich Cocoa,  faux brads were applied, then it was mounted on the planter with 3d pop dots.


Cardfront Base And Background:

  1. The base is olive green, the die cut is from Spellbinders Locking Loops.
  2. Diagonal Stripes was inked with Fluid Chalk Creamy Brown.  I stamped it with the stripes going from left to right on purpose.
  3. Rain was inked with Memento Bamboo Leaves and stamped with the drops going from right to left.
  4. Stickles Diamonds glitter glue was used to accent some of the drops.
  5. The Locking Loops die was used as a stencil, BG cut out, and then mounted on the die cut.


  1. The ribbon was applied, planter mounted with 3D pop dots, and then the bow!
  2. Viva Decor Yellow Quartz and Holo Iridescent and pearl stickers were used to accent the centers of the flowers.
  3. Grass was placed at the base of the planter.

Fun and ready to go.  Thanks for stopping by to look and share.  See you all back here for DT Thursday!!
