Spring! Winter 2014 CHA Swag Challenge

Suzanne, Queen of Quietfire attended the Prime Publishing Blogger event at Winter CHA in January (you can read about that here).
She graciously bestowed a box of swag on her loyal DT Shepherdess (moi!) to see what fab projects could spring from said swag, donated by several craft companies. 

 This package came from Elmers 

 and opened to reveal these items featuring their Painters Pen , a water based, permanent when dry paint marker, with a  versatile medium bullet tip.
I love a challenge, and still I was stuck, until I got the latest Quietfire Digital Cut files in the Silhouette Store!

Cut digital files from paper, making several copies of the word spring.
Here is the screen shot of the files.

Here they are ready to assemble.
Layer up the word using the glue marker to make a strong dimensional element, with the mirrored paper on top.  One piece tore, so I put that in the middle! Be patient taking these off of your mat. Use your tiny spatula.

Put the Elmer's Painters pen into the spritzer and spray randomly onto the pot. Draw as you will for added accent.
Adhere the doily and border with Dotz.

Shape your flowers using dry embossing tools.
The paper petals easily go from flat to fancy by pushing the paper with the tool into a mat or mouse pad. Quietfire has a nice set of tools, these I've had forever.
Adhere the flower elements with Dotz.

The sentiment is held up with a memo holder. Glue a heavy washer to the bottom to add weight.
The top is an alligator clip, hidden by the flower.

Place the holder in the pot and stuff with the shredded paper.

Instant Spring!
We till have snow! so the wildflower planting will have to wait.

Comments and Questions always welcomed.
