Flowers Flowers, Flowers Everywhere!

Welcome and Happy Friday to you!  

It's my turn to post a project and a tutorial for MarkerPop so i am combining the two!   .   It's Saturday and that means it's "Anything But A Card".  Sometimes that is harder to do!   I guess it is an opportunity to turn my Cameo Sihouette on and do some cutting!  

I created a treat box using my Cameo and decided to put a gardenia flower on one side and this adorable Tilda image on the other side.   Have you wondered how to POP those Magnolia images up?
I created a quick tutorial for you if you would like to see how I do it.

Gardenia Flowers.  I also altered the center one for a card I needed for a smaller focal image. 

I used a Cameo Silhouette to die cut this cute little treat bag.   I think I am going to put some fall seeds in it so it coordinates with my focal image and with the 3-D Gardenia I placed just under the flap.

I used this adorable Magnolia stamp called Tilda Watering. Isn’t she just the cutest little thing? This wonderful image gave me the opportunity to create a tin bucket with my Copic markers.  One of my favorite things to color is metal.   I love to age it and often add rust or tarnish!   I think I will fill this treat bag with some fall seeds that will coordinates with my focal image.  The image was stamped on Cryogen paper with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink (Tsukineko).  I embellished the background with Copic Multilinersand Copic Opaque White Ink.   

I am linking this card with the following wonderful challenges:

    1. Thank you, my friend! I didn't have trouble filming the video but boy oh boy did I have trouble finalizing it! My Mac is not upgradable and I need more RAM (i think - I am not techy). The iMovie part that needs to "finalize" wuldn't do it and I sat up all night trying to get it to finalize! Then I spelled Gardenia wrong and had to do it again! LOL I was really feeling sorry for myself! LOL
