So – with the admin stuff out of the way, my card today uses another newbie from the Annual Catalog – the Grown With Love bundle. I added a little bit of paper from the new Pick a Pattern DSP and came up with…take a look-see:
The layout is from The Paper Players challenge this week:
And I drew inspiration – colors, florals, geometric accents – from The Card Concept challenge.
I started by cutting a piece of Pick a Pattern DSP in black and white and matting it on a piece of Real Red card stock. I made it smaller than my usual card front to stay true to the sketch. I also departed from a second “normal” (for me!) thing by SNAILing this matted piece to my Basic Black card base at this point in the build. 🙂
Next up, I cut a Stitched Shapes circle (largest circle die) from a piece of Whisper White card stock and matted it on a Real Red scalloped circle (cut with the largest scallop die in the Circles Layering Framelits). I used some Liquid Glue to adhere this to the card front.
For my art work, I used a couple of images in the Grown with Love stamp set. I colored the flowers and the little-red-wagon with my Real Red, Garden Green and Basic Black Stampin’ Write Markers and then stamped them all on a piece of Whisper White card stock. The bundled Garden Grown Framelits has a matching die for both images, so I used those to cut them out. I popped the wagon onto the matted circle, using regular and mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, then added the flowers with Liquid Glue.
I stamped two more Real Red flowers from the Grown with Love set and cut them out with their matching dies. Using a stylus, I mushed in the center of each flower to give them a little depth and added them over the corresponding flowers on the card with Liquid Glue.
The sentiment on the banner is from the new Special Celebrations stamp set. I stamped it on a strip of Whisper White in Basic Black Archival Ink. I snipped one end as a banner, edged it with my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker, and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I added a few Daffodil Delight Enamel Shapes to the flowers and the end of the sentiment banner, and the card front was done!
On the inside, I stamped some more flowers from another Grown with Love image across the bottom of a Whisper White panel, using my Stampin’ Write Markers again to color the image and my Stamp-a-Ma-Jig to align them just right. You can see that I used just the flowers – avoiding the extra sentiment!
I SNAILd the panel to a Real Red mat and into the Basic Black card base and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a few more Grown with Love flowers on the front…
…and another piece of Pick a Pattern DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! This is a really cute little bundle – with flower pots and watering cans, flowers and vegetables! All with matching dies in the Garden Grown Framelits! Fun fun. Hope you like!
