Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop! Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Celebrate Summer! We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!
Summer and flowers really go together for me! Well – actually, summer and chile peppers and tomatoes, but…flowers are so much prettier on a card, am I right?! So…I used a new-to-me set called Queen Anne’s Lace – and I put it atop some bright and summery Artistry Blooms DSP! Take a look-see:
Pretty, isn’t it? Also – here’s a factoid (yes – you get a card AND a lesson!) – Queen Anne’s lace is also known as wild carrot – and the root is edible! I know! You’re mystified and amazed. But…it looks a lot like poison hemlock – which is NOT edible – so…you know. Be sure ya know what yer eatin’!
You’re welcome. 😉
My color palette is from the bright and beautiful Sunday Stamps color challenge.
I started by embossing a piece of Daffodil Delight in one of the Meadow Moments Embossing Folders – had to run thru twice to emboss the entire panel because this is a Mini folder! Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to the front of my Daffodil Delight card base.
On a piece of Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight paper from the Artistry Blooms DSP, I stamped the Queen Anne’s lace image twice in Garden Green. When it was good and dry, I stamped the flower-fill image in Versamark – twice – sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it with the high setting on my Heat Tool.
When it was cool, I double matted it on Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green card stock.
I tied a little bow from the Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Ruched Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.
I stamped the Queen Anne’s Lace sentiment in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die. Then I put two double-stacks of Stampin’ Dimensionals under the right side of the die cut – and a dab of Liquid Glue on top of the bow – and popped the sentiment onto the card front.
A few clear Elegant Faceted Gems finished off the card front!
On the inside, I stamped the Queen Anne’s lace image twice in Garden Green across the bottom of a Whisper White panel. Then I added a few more clear Elegant Faceted Gems.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green mats and into the Daffodil Delight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Queen Anne’s lace in Garden Green on the front…
…and more of the Artistry Blooms DSP – in the same color scheme, but a slightly different design – on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I love Queen Anne’s Lace (even more now that I know I COULD eat it if I needed to!) and I love it just as much in card-form! The stamp set has some really wonderful sentiments…
…and I really like the gorgeous and colorful Artistry Blooms DSP! So many designs and colors to choose from!
I hope you like – and will pick these up to make your own summer garden on a card! 😉
