Friday Tutorial Ornate Garden by Me

Today we have a beautiful card that I added to our Tutorial Medley group.  It uses the Ornate Garden Suite.

Ornate Garden Suite by Jo Anne Hewins

I was proud of this one.  Here are the instuctions below.

Ornate Garden


Stamp Sets: Ornate Style #152572, Ornate Thanks #149471, Ornate Style Bundle #154119

Cardstock: Highland Heather #146986, Whisper White #100730

Ink: Versamark #102283, Mango Melody Blends Combo #154888, Balmy Blue Blends Combo #154830, Highland Heather Blends Combo #154887, Purple Posy Blends Combo #154896, Mossy Meadow Blends Combo #154890, Early Espresso Pad #147114

Tools & Accessories: Ornate Layer dies #152726, Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder #109129, Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding #151326

Designer Paper: Ornate Garden Specialty DSP #152488

Misc: Paper Snips #103579, Take Your Pick Tool #144107, Grid Paper #130148, Stampin’ Sponges #141337, Heat Tool #129053, Paper Trimmer #152392, Glue Dots #103683, Multipurpose Liquid Glue #110755, Foam Adhesive Strips #141825


Card Base: Highland Heather 5 ½ x 8 ½, score at 4 1/4

Cardstock #2: Whisper White 3 ¾ x 5 (Use 1 or 2, see directions)

Cardstock #3:

Designer Paper: 3 5/8 x 4 7/8 gold outlined flowers


Stamp around the card base with the large flower stamp from Ornate Style in Versamark to leave a pattern around the edges.

Sponge the Ornate Garden Specialty paper with Highland Heather ink. Rub over the surface with a tissue to wipe away extra ink and allow the gold to shine.

Stamp the large flower stamp again in the center of the Whisper White layer in Early Espresso ink.

Color in the image. Use the following blends: Crushed Curry combo, Balmy Blue combo, Mossy Meadow combo, Dark Purple Posy, and Dark Highland Heather.

Use the Ornate Layers dies to cut. You need the long thin stitched rectangle. Cut from the middle of the flowers. Now cut another rectangle directly next to the left and another to the right. If you wish you can use the outer part of this layer to make the Whisper White layer between the base and the patterned paper. This would save paper. If not, use the second Whisper White layer for this.

Use Grid Paper to help with placement of the strips. Find the middle of the patterned paper at the top and the bottom and use that to place the middle strip. Keep strips in the correct order. Add with Foam Adhesive Strips. Now add to the left and right looking at the spacing between the middle strip and edges of the layer.

Add all layers together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Color a 5 inch piece of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding with a Dark Balmy Blue Blend. Add across the lower part of the strips. Use a glue dot on the under side of the strips to add the ribbon. Add another glue dot under the ribbon across the top to stabilize.

Stamp the work THANKS from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Versamark on a scrap of Highland Heather card stock. Add Gold Emboss Powder and melt with the Heat Tool. Trim using Paper Snips or the Paper Trimmer. Add across the ribbon with glue dots.

I used a 13 inch piece of colored seam binding to tie a double bow. Add with a glue dot.

Here are an additional picture for you.
