Stampin’ Up! Morning Star You’re The Best Thanks!

Good morning, all!  Hoping that this – the 435th day of April – finds you well.  And caffeinated.  And chocolate-i-fied.  And dealing as well-as-can-be-expected in self-social-isolation.  Appears that GA is opening up – slowly! – starting on Friday.  Thank goodness – I’ve been anxiously waiting for the tatoo-parlors to open back up.

Say…what now??

Yes.  Hair and nail salons.  Tatoo parlors.  Massage therapists.

But we’re to continue to practice the good social behaviors we’ve been doing.

Interested to see a hair cut – massage – or manicure from….six feet away. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

I doubt it will matter – won’t be able to get a hair appointment for 3 months anyway!! 🙂

So.  Card.  Let’s do that!  I used the sweet Morning Star stamp set – which coordinates with the Stitched Stars Dies – to make a sweet little thank you card – or friendship card. No stars in sight – just….petunias!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week.

And the color palette is from the Global-Design-Project challenge.

This one is a quick and easy card – with a little fussy cutting.  Don’t be scared! 😉

I started with a Whisper White panel that I stamped across the bottom a few times with the cool vine image from Morning Star – in Mint Macaron.

I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy and added another leaf image in Mint Macaron. Aren’t those leaves and vines pretty?  I love them!

I embossed the panel in the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder and matted it on Night of Navy for the card front.

I stamped the large Morning Star petunia in Melon Mambo on Whisper White and fussy cut them.   I edged each of the flowers with my Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker, then popped them all onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A few Night of Navy gems from the Holiday Rhinestone pack finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment in Night of Navy, a few Mint Macaron vines and leaves, and the smaller petunia image from Morning Star in Melon Mambo on a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Night of Navy mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got vines and small petunias on the front…

…and the pretty vine image on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I do love petunias – and these images in Morning Star are beautiful!  I also really like the vines and sentiments!  And don’t forget the Stitched Stars dies that coordinate – and are still available!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

This seemed like a good day for a garden update.  The rain and pretty pleasant weather – well, except for Easter night – has had a pretty electrifying effect on the veggies and fruits!  Check it!

Raspberries and blueberries….

My single rose – it’s got a little bud on it!

Ancho Magnifico Peppers – I saw a video on YouTube about pruning pepper plants.  Seemed to make sense so I did it.  And they’re branching out and getting bushy instead of tall and leggy!  Yeah!

This bed has two Sweetheart Tomatoes training up the trellis.  And mustard and collard greens going gang-busters.  Plus 6 Buttercrunch lettuce plants that I’ve harvested twice now.  They’re doing a nice job as cut-and-come-agains.  I have more starting in the house! 🙂

Two more tomatoes – called Mater Sandwich (cute, huh?) – on this trellis and White Ball Turnips.  A little spinach – I think my seed was a little old and I didn’t get quite the germination I’d hoped for on that.

The bed in the background has a yellow summer squash and a spaghetti squash on the trellis and radishes on the right side.  I don’t love radishes – but they taste pretty good roasted in the oven.  And they’re sort of instant gratification!  I have a couple of Roma tomatoes starting that will transplant there in a few days.

Finally – here’s my French Algarve beans!!  They are growing like crazy!!  Best.  Beans.  Ever!  The bed on the left has Tomatillos – and will soon have some Sweet Basil in their beds – Wayne saw a thing said they were good for pest management, like marigolds, but…they smell wonderful.  And you can eat it! Win win!

So there it is!  So far – so good!

I’m excited to harvest mustard, collards and turnips soon.

Amy – I know you’re jealous.  Sorry, bud – you’ll have to grow your own greens and beans!! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Sparkly Ornate Garden with a Video Tutorial for The Paper Players!

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a challenge from the talented Anne Marie this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join us yesterday for our Ornate Garden FB Event and watched my video live, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with us – and hope you had a good time!  If you didn’t see the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

Now – y’all know that clean-and-simple isn’t really my thing.  Also – when I looked at the challenge badge – I might have missed the “clean-and-simple” words.  Oops? 😉  So my Ornate Garden DSP is a little busier than might be considered truly clean and simple. But – the fun fold is fun – and easy!  And the Ornate Layers die cuts and Ornate Thanks sentiments work great.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players CAS challenge!  Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

 

This fun fold is one I shamelessly CASE’d from my friend Karen Ksenzakovic – check her card out here!

There are essentially two cards here.  The larger card base is 5 1/2″ x 10″ – scored and folded at 4 1/4″ and 8 1/2″.  The smaller card is 3″ x 7″ – scored and folded at 3 1/2″.

I started with a piece of Gold Glimmer paper and cut the Ornate Layers die cut frame from it.  Next, I used a Stitched Rectangle Die to cut a piece from the center of my Ornate Garden DSP – handily, the dies in the Stitched Rectangles work VERY nicely with the Ornate Layers dies!

I adhered the DSP panel (the one with the rectangle cut out) to a Crushed Curry mat and then to the front of the larger card.

I adhered the Gold Glimmer Ornate Layers die cut over the “hole”.  Finally, I added the Stitched Rectangle that I’d cut from the DSP.

I matted an Old Olive strip of the DSP to a Crushed Curry mat and then to the shorter panel of the larger card.

I folded the small card and, using Liquid Glue on about an 1″ of the back of the small card (near the folded edge) I adhered it to the smaller panel of the main card.

I matted two small pieces of Whisper White on Crushed Curry.  Using the flourish corner image in the Ornate Style set, I stamped the four corners of each panel in Old Olive.

On the front panel, I stamped the Ornate Thanks sentiment in Terracotta Tile.  Then I masked the sentiment and added the sweet little daisy over top in Old Olive.  I lightly colored the daisy with my Light So Saffron Stampin’ Blend.

The inside panel got a second sentiment in Terracotta Tile – then I adhered it inside the smaller card with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a length of Old Olive ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack around BOTH cards – then popped the little card front onto the little card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The card front sort of “captures” the ribbon….

For the inside of the larger card – I added the corner flourishes again in Old Olive on a Whsiper White panel.  Then I added a larger Ornate Thanks sentiment in Terracotta Tile and two smaller sentiments in Crushed Curry.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into the inside of the larger card.

I tied the ribbon in a bow – added a Gilded Gem to the front of the smaller card – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Old Olive corner flourishes on the front…

…and more of the Ornate Garden DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  This is a really easy fun fold – it’s harder to describe than it is to do, I promise! 🙂  I am loving this new Ornate Garden Suite – especially the Ornate Thanks stamp set with it’s multitude of wonderful sentiment phrase combinations!!  And the gorgeous paper…don’t miss the beautiful foiled designs!  I hope you like and will be adding this entire Suite to your stash!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden FB Event Video Sneak Peek

Good morning!  Well.  It’s 18 April.  In the big scheme of things, BC19, we’d be waking up this morning on Pawleys Island, getting ready to celebrate our friends’ wedding.  Having spent the last couple of days with the whole crowd in a condo – getting ready.

But nooooooooo!

I suspect THEY are more bummed than we are – but…I’m pretty darned bummed. 🙁

Finn Fan Fix


I’ve shown some pictures of Finn in his kennel – quite a few of them, actually, cuz he looks pretty cute in there sometimes!

I think some folks may think his kennel is something he dislikes.  Or is like…a cage.

Okay – it IS a cage – I mean…come on.  Kennel = cage. 😉

But – the Finn-ster grew up with a kennel as his bedroom.

And…he STILL thinks of it as his bedroom.  I know this because…

There he is several days ago – just chillin’ in his room.  That’s where I found him when I went in to change after getting off the dreadmill in the morning.

Two days ago – been up a few hours and….tired again!

I’ve actually left him out a few nights (thinking he ought to know how to sleep NOT in his room) – and…yep.  He’s right in there in the morning!

All of which means that if we ever travel with him…something like his bedroom has to go with us.

Handy.

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Early Release Suite Now Available!

Happy Happy HAWWWMP Day!  And – Happy “Go-Live” Day to the new Ornate Garden Suite!!  Whoo-hoo!

I’ve been showing you lots of samples of this cool new suite – you know it’s an Early Release from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, right?  And it’s awesome!

I’ve got another card for you today, using the Ornate Style and Ornate Thanks stamp sets, a little of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP and the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

This fun layout is inspired by this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

And the color palette is from the Fab Friday color challenge.

I started with a panel of Whisper White.  I ran just the right side – about 1 1/2″ – thru the die cutting machine in the new Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

Then I used my Paper Trimmer to cut a triangle of the gold-foil embossed Ornate Garden Specialty DSP – it’s about 1 1/2″ across at the top and 5 1/8″ long – cut on a diagonal to create a point.

I used my Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend Combo Packs and the Light Pumpkin Pie Blend to color the flowers.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

Then I matted the panel on Mango Melody.

Using Glue Dots on the back of the card front, I adhered two lengths of Terracotta Tile ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped one sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Terracotta Tile and a second sentiment in Pumpkin Pie.  Then I cut it with a Stitched Rectangle Die.

I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a small Gilded Gem and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a third sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Pumpkin Pie on a Whisper White panel.  In each corner, I added a flourish in Terracotta Tile.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and into my Pumpkin Pie card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Terracotta Tile flourishes on the front…

…and more Blends-colored Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  SO many ways to put all the pieces, parts, images and sentiments together in this spectacular new Ornate Garden Suite!  From the Ornate Thanks and Ornate Style stamp sets, to the bundled Ornate Layers and Ornate Borders dies…and the gorgeous Ornate Garden Specialty DSP is stunning!  I hope you like and – are rushing to get yours ordered right now!

Here’s a quick video about this cool new Suite! 🙂03.03.20_TH_VIDEOSCREEN1_ORNATE_GARDEN_NA

You can go to my Online Store to order it yourself or…for a few more days, you can take advantage of my Ornate Garden Special Bundle!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix


In these chaotic and troubled times, I’m glad that we have our own ZEWS. Zombie Early Warning System.

Behold.  ZEWS Sentry – Deploy.

ZEWS 1 – in strategic position.

That locale was carefully selected by ZEWS 1 – it offers 180 degrees of overwatch of both the house and the barn.  The road behind him – an obvious ingress point for zombies – he covers with his cat-like hear-stuff-sneaking-up-behind-him senses.

He remains ever-vigilant.

His request for a ghillie-suit was obviously denied and he sort of sticks out.  But…stealth is not his weapon of choice.

Vocalizing the threat is his forte.

And a deep suspicion – which is good for a ZEWS Sentry.  Cuz Zombies are…everywhere.  And well disguised.

Maybe…

Definite possibility.

Is there any doubt??


Vigilance is key.  ZEWS 1 must remain alert at all times.  It’s in the code.

Wargaming is important, though.  Critical to think thru the steps if the hoard should lumber over the hill.  You KNOW they’d come from the back.

Zombies are pretty smart.

Not everyone knows that.

Wargaming COULD be misconstrued for napping on duty.

It’s not.

Napping.

He’s deep in strategery-izing….

Finn Fan Fix


I know you want to see something about Finn today – and we will.

But first…

Shockingly – there are no sprouting seedlings!  What?!?

I mean – it’s been TWO days.  😉

I know.  I KNOW – it takes way longer than that.  But – for some reason – I can’t keep from peeeeering thru the chicken wire every morning (okay – and again in the evening) just to be sure!  And I’m unreasonably disappointed every time there’s nuthin’ but dirt.

One day, though.  One.  Day!

Okay.  Do you ever wonder what an Aussie would look like with…up-ears?  Instead of flop-ears?

Here you go.

Who are we kidding?  Up-ears, flop-ears, pointy ears,….he’s stinkin’ cute!

He also thinks I’m weird.

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Thoughtful Blooms Fun Fold with Video Tutorial for the Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a Sketch Challenge from Claire this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I saw a super cute fun-fold over on my friend Karen Ksenzakovic’s blog – you can check out her gorgeous version right here – and decided to CASE the fold!  I used the soon-to-be-available Ornate Garden Suite goodies.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players CAS challenge!  Join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

 

I started with a piece of Early Espresso card stock, 4 1/4″ x 11″ that I scored with my Simply Scored Tool at 2 1/4″, 3 5/8″, 7 3/8″ and 8 3/4″.  Then I folded and burnished each score line – starting with a “valley” fold at 2 1/4″, mountain at 3 5/8″ and 7 3/8″, and finishing up with another valley at 8 3/4″.  And that was the entire fun-fold…done!

To decorate, I matted two pieces of Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on Terracotta Tile and adhered them with Liquid Glue to the two side panels.

For the middle panel, I used a different design in the DSP pack, also matted on Terracotta Tile.  With SNAIL and Glue Dots, I adhered two lengths of Old Olive ribbon (from the new Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack – coming on 1 April).

I stamped the pretty flower corner image from the new Ornate Style set in Early Espresso on a piece of Whisper White.  The image is colored with my Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Combos and the Dark Daffodil Delight Blend.

I added the large sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Terracotta Tile – then two more in Early Espresso.  Then I cut the image with the second-to-largest rectangle die in the awesome Stitched So Sweetly Die set.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped flowers from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set (FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration) in Terracotaa Tile (full strength and stamped-off-once) and Crushed Curry (the same).  Then I cut them all out with the Small Bloom Punch (FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration).

The little leaves die cuts are actually the NEGATIVE space that was left over from cutting one of the Ornate Borders die cuts from a piece of Mint Macaron.

I laid all the pieces out, then began to adhere the leaves and flowers with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I popped the sentiment on with Dimensionals on the left side of the rectangle.  Finally, I added some Gold Metallic Pearls to the flower centers, popped the whole thing on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the back, I adhered two more Terracotta Tile-matted pieces of Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the side panels.  On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped and colored the Ornate Style flower image.  I added another sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Terracotta Tile.

I adhered the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into the middle of the fun-fold card, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Ornate Style flower on the front…

…and a little more Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t this a fun fun-fold??  Super easy and awesome to look at – and it all fits perfectly in a regular Medium (A2) envelope!  I love the Ornate Garden Suite with it’s Ornate Style and Ornate Thanks bundles anchoring the gorgeous paper.

Be looking for those – and all the goodies – in the Ornate Garden Suite on 1 April.  I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix


These are scary times.  I’m not going to fib you – I’m a little freaked out some days.

So – when I get that way, it helps to have my dig-dog.  The Finn-ster.  The Finny-winny.  The Finn-man.  The Finny-Bo-Binny.  The dog-a-lous.

Yes.  He’s embarrassed to admit he answers to all of the above.

Usually.

But – regardless of what I call him – he makes me smile and usually makes me feel better.

So…I wanted to share a little Finn-man cuteness.

To help us put everything into paw-spective.

Behold.

From above – this was all I could see of him….just some cute paws.

Do you think that as dogs get older – they get extra hair on their toes?  Like…we sometimes do??

That is NOT loose fur – that’s toe-feathers!! 🙂

Hope you had a minute of aaaahhhhhhhh…..

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style with Thoughtful Blooms Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all!  Hope you’ve got a great weekend at home planned!  This is our “planting” weekend – we got the peppers, tomatoes and lettuce starts in the beds last night.  The rose, raspberries and blueberries are soaking their roots in preparation for planting.  And – I’ve got flowers started to put in, too!  AND – more seeds coming soon!  I LOVE spring!

Also?  My three hydrangeas all have leaves, so…I didn’t kill them with my not-so-knowledgeable pruning this past fall!  Whoo-hoo.  I’m like…almost a Master Gardener.  Go me! 🙂

Since it’s Saturday, I figured we’d try to get together tonight on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page for a little video time together.  So…I’ll be live at 7pm Eastern and we’ll make a fun-fold that I blatantly stole from my teammate.  We’re going to take a look at the new Ornate Garden Suite…and Thoughtful Blooms.  Yes – I’m seriously in a flowerdy mood.  Take a sneaky peek!

It’s a super easy fun fold – and the Ornate Garden Suite really makes it a stand-out!  So…I hope you can join me!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Thanks Sneak Peek

Happy Happy Haawwwwmmmp DAY!!!  Hope you’re enjoying your Social Distancing.

Let me re-phrase.  I hope you are DOING your Social Distancing.

Seriously.  Do it! 😉

While you’re distancing yourself in our efforts to flatten the curve, I hope you’re doing some crafting.  And…looking forward to the cool Early Release of the Ornate Garden Suite.  It’s a new suite coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  And…Stampin’ Up! is letting us play with it early!  Demonstrators are already having fun with it – customers will get your chance on 1 April!

In an effort to fan the flames of your excitement – and also cuz it’s COOL!! – I played with the Ornate Style and Ornate Thanks Bundles, plus the gorgeous Ornate Garden DSP and Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder for today’s card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s TGIF Challenge.

I started with a piece of the Ornate Garden DSP that I matted on Terracotta Tile for the card front.  Then I cut a smaller piece of Blushing Bride with the edge die in the Ornate Borders die set (which is bundled with the Ornate Thanks stamp set).

I embossed the die cut panel in the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I stamped the larger word from Ornate Thanks in Old Olive on a piece of Whisper White.  Above that, in Terracotta Tile, I added the smaller sentiment.  Isn’t that font wunnermus?  I love it!

I used the rectangle die in the Ornate Layers Dies (bundled with the Ornate Style set) to cut the sentiment.  Since the die is longer than I wanted my sentiment, I ran it thru my die cutting machine a couple of times to make it shorter.

I popped the sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I pulled out the Cherry Blossoms Dies and used the leaves cut-and-emboss dies to cut Mint Macaron and Old Olive Leaves.  With the flower dies from the Ornate Borders set, I cut some Blushing Bride and Whisper White flowers.  Then I adhered them into little flower stacks with Liquid Glue.

I laid out all the flowers and leaves and took my picture…

I used Liquid Glue to adhere all the leaves in place.  The flower stacks all have little pieces of Stampin’ Dimensional and Liquid Glue to adhere them.

I added a Gilded Gem (part of the Ornate Garden Suite) to the middle of each flower stack and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another Ornate Thanks sentiment to a Whisper White panel in Old Olive.  I stamped a couple of the floruishes from Ornate Style in the corners in Terracotta Tile.  Across the bottom I adhered a Terracotta Tile mat and a strip of the Ornate Garden DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into my Blushing Bride card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Ornate Style flourishes in Terracotta Tile on the front…

…and more of the Ornate Garden DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this Ornate Garden Suite – the two bundles that anchor it – Ornate Style and Ornate Thanks – are wonderful and complement each other perfectly!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Sneak Peek for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

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 Spring!  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!

Park.  Territorial.  Burpee’s.  Johnny’s.  Those names sound familiar to you?  Well – if they do, then you understand the terrible and wonderful temptation that comes every spring in the mailbox.  SEED CATALOGS!  Filled with page after page of flowers and vegetables and herbs, just waiting for a gardening genius like myself to plant them and bring their bounty to life.  When the catalogs arrive, I am suddenly and acutely struck with a GREEN THUMB fantasy.  In this fantasy – I plant all the beautiful flowers I see in all the seed catalogs.  They’re all in JUST the right place to get the right sun, I’ll weed them every day, water when they require it, deadhead to ensure bountiful flowers….on and on and on.  And – I’ll cut bundles and oodles of beautiful blooms that I will then artfully arrange in one of my many shabby chic farmhouse-perfect flower holders that are stored in my perfect pantry…..

And then?  I realize…I better put my spring flowers on a card.  Cuz…THAT, I really CAN do.  And that’s what I did for you today.  I put some new Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to work with daisies from the new Ornate Style stamp set and a few die cut beauties from the Ornate Layers Die set.  Take a look-see:

Now – this Ornate Garden Suite will be available to y’all on 1 April (no joke!).  Or…you COULD get it right now.  Give me a shout if you’d like to find out how!

This is a fun-fold card, but the layout for the front is inspired by the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week.

I started by cutting the Old Olive card base to 5 1/2″ x 7 1/2″  and scoring it at 3 1/4″.   That makes the front of the card just 3 1/4″ wide.

I matted a piece of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on Terracotta Tile and adhered it to the small card front with Liquid Glue.

With a die in the new Ornate Layers Die set, I cut a rectangle frame from Terracotta Tile.

Using Liquid Glue on the left side of the die – to about 1″ from the right edge – I adhered the die cut to the card front, letting the edge hang over as you can see in the photo above.  Be sure not to get glue on the exposed part of the die cut – if you do, wipe it with a damp cloth quickly, or wait until it dries and rub it off with a gum eraser! 🙂

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped a daisy from the Ornate Style stamp set (part of the new Suite coming on 1 April!) in Tuxedo Black.  I started with the flower in the middle.  Then I added the second flower on the right.

I fussy cut two masks of the image from sticky notes and covered the first two flowers before adding the third (the one on the left).

I picked up the masks and colored the leaves with my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack.  For the flowers, I used my So Saffron Combo Pack – only coloring the middle and about half of each petal.  I also used my Light Mango Melody Blend near the middle.  Finally, I used the Color Lifter to blur the edges of the colored parts of the petals. The panel is adhered with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I stamped the large sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Old Olive on a piece of Whisper White.  Using the “I’m” and “for all your help” sentiment images, I added them in Terracotta Tile, tucked right up to the first sentiment.

I used the long rectangle die in the Ornate Layers Die set to cut the sentiment and then popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added another Ornate Thanks sentiment in Old Olive on a Whisper White panel.  Over the top, in stamped-off-once Tuxedo Black, I added the daisy image.  I used just the Light So Saffron Blend and a smidge of Light Mango Melody Blend to lightly color just the flower.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into the Old Olive card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the daisy in full-strength Tuxedo Black and colored with the Blends on the front…

…and a little more of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  So….are you excited to get the new Ornate Garden Suite – with the beautiful Ornate Thanks and Ornate Style bundles with those wonderful images and die sets??  Between those, and the lovely spring-flower-strewn Ornate Garden Specialty DSP, this suite is one you WILL want!  I promise.  I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!  You’ll be able to pick up all the new Suite goodies on 1 April.
