Hello to you. I'm so happy that you are joining me for this Thursday's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #606. This week we have a sketch.
The Ornate Garden Suite is an early release from Stampin' Up! This suite will be in the upcoming annual catalog, but it's available to purchase early now. It's great for those of us who like new stuff! That's me for sure!
For card for today's challenge was made using this new suite.
This card starts with a card base of Calypso Coral that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.
I'm using the new Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper. Calypso Coral is not listed as one of the matching card stock colors. I do think that it looks great! This paper also gives us a sneak peek at one of the new In Colors coming soon. It's called Bumblebee. It's a luscious yellow! The paper with the Bumblebee background is cut to 3 3/4 x 5.
The next layer is the Old Olive paper that measures 2 1/2 x 3 3/4. It's placed at an angle.
The flowered paper is 3/4 x 3 1/2.
Using the Stitched Shapes dies cut an oval with the 2nd largest oval. Cut this from Calypso Coral card stock.
The flower pot is made using the Tailored Tag Punch. Just cut it in half. I stamped it with one of the design stamps from the Ornate Style stamp set in Old Olive. Cut a thin rectangle as a lip for the pot. Add the pot with dimensionals.
Stamp the small group of flowers on a scrap of Whisper White with Memento Black ink. Color this in with the Light and Dark Calypso Blends and the Light and Dark Old Olive Blends. Fussy cut. Add to the top of the pot with dimensionals too. I tried to make it overlap the pot just a little.
Add the oval to the card with dimensionals.
Color some of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding with a Dark Old Olive Blend. Tie into a bow and add to the card with a glue dot.
Here's the inside of the card. The saying is from the Ornate Thanks stamp set. Stamp in Garden Green for the Thanks and Calypso Coral for the ever so much. Add three flowers and color with the same blends.
Thanks so much for making me a part of your day. I appreciate it. If you need supplies I'm here for you.
Next week, April 6-10, I am posting a card and video each day. Since I can't have a class in my home, I thought I would share this way. I hope you will check in each day! Each day has a card, a downloadable tutorial, and a video. Go to luv2create.typepad.com.
