Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. Card size: 5 x 6". Cut white cardstock and gray cardstock 2 1/8" x 10 1/2" 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 Flowersoft to the base outside of where the well will go. Glitter the ground, the roof and all the flowers.

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.

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.

Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. Make the Tulip: Stamp the large and medium flowers onto white card using melon mambo ink and shade from the centre out to create a gradual fade to white at the top using precision daubers. Die cut. Place the die cuts into the mold face down and spritz with water lightly, close the mold and run through the die cutting machine. Remove from the mold, put a small spot of glue in the centre of one set of petals and layer another set on top, push into the centre using the flower shaping kit and pull the paper up to create the tube shape of the flower. Allow to dry thoroughly. Make a hole in the centre of the flower and add 7 rock candy stamens to the centre of the medium flowers and to the larger flowers add rock candy stamens and 3 medium pearl stamens. Repeat with pineapple punch ink to create some large yellow tulips.

Add to the leaves: Stamp the leaves onto old olive card using black ink. Die cut and shade using old olive ink. Roll and shape the head of the stalk and bend forwards. Cut the stamen ends off the bottom of the flowers and using hot glue press the flower heads into the top of the stalk curling the green around the base of the tulip. When the hot glue has dried gently shape and lift the leaves.

Cut a triangle of grey board approximately 6" x 5" and round the wide edges. Cover with yellow paper from the pad.

Layer the tulips onto the grey board, securing them with hot glue at the base of the stem only.

Stamp filler flowers and leaves onto the yellow and pale pink papers using black ink. Die cut and lightly shape using the flower shaping tools. Add dries clear ink to the filler flowers and dip into crystal clear to add some sparkle. When dry add to the bouquet using wet glue.

Cut 2 squares of florist wrapping paper approx. 16" square and add a slightly smaller piece of tissue paper between fold diagonally in half. Hot glue the grey board in place. Wrap the papers around the tulip bouquet and roll down at the sides. Secure the folds in place using hot glue.

Glue the petals together to help them hold their shape. Punch a hole in the bottom of the petals and thread through the stamens. Use hot glue to hold the stamens in place. Glitter the edges of the flowers and set aside to dry. Add the leaves and flowers to the stamped floral piece and slide down inside the slit in the top of the watering can. Glue to hold the flowers and leaves inside. Glue watering can to the circle on the card front and cover with the picket fence. I attached the fence with dimensional tape.
