The Quiet Meadow bundle packs a WOW that you might not see at first.
The stamp set has a lot of stamps that lend themselves to making your own background. I have focused more on the stamp set today. There is a video that I made for the NC Demo Facebook group. I do show some more samples of cards at the end of the video. I'll add that a little later. Here is my card.
It's a pretty simple card with the only cut out being the label.
The card base is Crumb Cake measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score and fold at 4 1/4.
I stamped my own background for this card. I started with the saying. Stamp in Crumb Cake. It doesn't really matter how you do this. The stamp is not long enough to stamp across the whole card. I started at the center and then stamped below and to the left, below and to the right, and then started all over again.
Next I added the dots. Again I stamped in Crumb Cake wherever I wanted. Rotate the stamp so that you get different effects with the dots.
I took the single flower next and stamped here and there over the card front again using Crumb Cake.
Now stamp the flower grouping on the card front two times with Memento Black ink.
Use watercolor pencils to color the flower. I used the White and the Daffodil Delight from our first set of watercolor pencils. I also used Granny Apple Green from the Assortment 2. For the white I did have to press down quite a bit. On my video I used a spongy piece under my grid paper. I suggest that you color on a hard surface.
Color all the white and then add the yellow centers. Finish with the green.
Add a length of the Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon. I just added Seal to the back of the ribbon.
Stamp the saying from Quiet Meadow on a piece of Basic White in Early Espresso. Add with dimensionals. I used some thin strips I cut from the Foam Adhesive Sheets on mine.
Add a bow of Linen Thread OR you could use the Crumb Cake twine from the new Baker's Twine Essentials Pack. Check out the video.
Add a few embellishments by stamping the largest of the small flowers in Memento Black. Color with the colored pencils.
For the inside, the saying is from Quiet Meadow. Stamp in Early Espresso. Decorate the bottom of the inside using the same techniques shown on the front.
Here's the video from my Facebook Live for the NC Demo Facebook Group.
