So good to see you today! I have a great card today using the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #608 sketch.
I'm using the new Ornate Style stamp set. Here's the card.
Begin with a card base of Old Olive that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.
Cut the green (Old Olive) paper from Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8. Run this paper through a die cutting machine with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder. Glue to the front of the card.
From the same paper pack, use the Pool Party paper for the banner. I used the Stitched Nested Labels dies to cut the banner. The die does not go as long as mine on this card. I had to patch it. I used the 2nd largest die. Cut a whole one and a partial one. Add to the card. Patch the two together behind where the focal piece will go. No one will ever know.
Stamp the large floral stamp from Ornate Style in Memento Black on Whisper White card stock. Color with blends. I used Light and Dark Old Olive, Light and Dark Highland Heather, Light and Dark Pool Party, and Dark Mango Melody. Yes, you will have to fussy cut this. Just bite the bullet. It's not really that hard. Add to the card front with dimensionals. Be careful to hide the area where you patched the banner.
Color three of the Basic Rhinestone Jewels with a Dark Pool Party Blend. Add to the card.
Here's the inside of the card. The saying is from Seaside Notions in Memento Black. Add part of the large flower stamp from the corner. Color the same as on the front.
There is so much you can do with the Ornate Garden Suite. You can see all about it here. This suite is an early release. It will be in the brand new annual catalog that comes out in June. I have posted quite a few cards showing off this suite. If you missed them go here, here, here, here, and here. You can tell that I love it!
Thanks for joining me today. I know you are busy. Take care of yourself. I have to say that my stamping has kept me sane. I'm so grateful to be able to pass each day doing just what I love. I also have a wonderful husband to keep me company. I hope that you are happy and content. Everything will be OK. We'll return to some kind of new normal. I know it. In the meantime, if I can help you with supplies to make your projects, just let me know.
