Hand Stamped Flowerpot Card

Hello and happy Tuesday! Today, I have my inspiration card for the challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz. The theme this week is Gardening and the design team did a wonderful job turning this theme masculine. My Hand Stamped Flowerpot Card is a rarity for me, it's all hand stamped with NO patterned paper. I was afraid at first to use flowers on a masculine card but guys plant flowers, so I figured it should work. The idea was based off Flowerpot or Container Gardening. It's sad to admit that the Create a Garden stamp set by Rubbernecker has been in my stash for at least three years and this was the first time I inked it up. The sentiment stamp is called Every Season by Verve Stamps and was stamped using Memento black ink. The other ink colors are all by Stampin' Up! and include: Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky, Tangelo Twist, Garden Green, Pistachio Pudding, Crushed Curry and Island Indigo. That's it!

We hope you are inspired to join us this week at Cardz 4 Guyz. Click here to go directly to the challenge. Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

My Hand Stamped Flowerpot Card is entered into the following challenges:


  1. Lovely card Andrea - well worth pressing that stamp set into action for!

  2. A fab first outing for this set Andrea.
    Men are obsessive about flowers when the bug hits them. My Dad and Father in law used to grow chrysanths in regimented rows, they said for cutting! :)

  3. A lovely card Andrea, I've come across the flower fanatic male too, very competitive at the local shows !
