NC Demo Blog Hop Let's Think Summer

Welcome to all of you!  The NC Demo Blog Hop takes place on the last Sunday of each month at 8:00 pm ET.  This month our theme is summer!  That's a big topic and can cover a plethora of topics.  You might have just come from Amy's blog.  I know you enjoyed her project!  I can't wait to see what everyone has to share.

When you have the topic of summer, you can go anywhere.  It took a while to decide, but I have settled on flowers.  I'm not the best grower of flowers, but I love them so much.  I do put boxes of flowers around my deck every year.  I have those boxes that fit on the rails.


Simple, but they give me joy.

My card does not look like this, but they were the inspiration for the card.

Let's get down to the details.  The base of the card is Thick Basic White cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score and fold at 4 1/4.

The brick paper is from the Bloom Where You're Planted Designer Series Paper.  Cut it to 4 x 5 1/4.    Add a 1 x 4 strip of wood look paper from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the bottom.

Thanks to Jean for letting me use your Seasonal Basket dies.  I  cut the basket from Crumb Cake and from Soft Suede.  I actually cut a lot to use later, too.  I think I'll probably be adding the Season's Blessings Bundle to my list.  It's on page 94.  Simply trace around the basket to add a color behind.  Fussy cut slightly inside your pencil line and glue together.  I used Soft Suede behind the Crumb Cake basket and Early Espresso behind the Soft Suede basket.  Look at the basket on the right.  It is shorter than the basket on the left.  All I did was cut off a few rows!  I didn't want them to look exactly the same.

Fill your basket with leaves, lots of leaves.  I used the larger bundle of leaves from the Plentiful Plants stamp set and the smaller group of 3 leaves.  The larger group is stamped in Evening Evergreen and the smaller group is stamped in Soft Succulent.  I think I stamped about 4 or 5 of each.  Cut these out using the Perfect Plants dies.  Start just at the top of the basket and build up.  I did trim some of the leaves into singles or doubles so they would fit just where needed.  There is no right or wrong.  Just make it pleasing to you.  Some have dimensionals and some are adhered with glue or glue dots.

Now add flowers.  I used the Pierced Blooms dies for this.  Thanks to my sister Martha for helping me to see how nicely the Petal Pink looks with the brick paper.  Who knew?  I think this card did take a village!

The sentiment is from the Plentiful Plants stamp set.  It's stamped in Evening Evergreen.

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying is from Plentiful Plants.  Add leaves and flowers.  That's it.

Fabulous card, Jo Anne! I love the baskets! What a great idea. I may have to add that die to my list now. Thank you SO much for sharing!

I love the DSP that you used. And pairing Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent makes so much sense.

Laurie Meier

Jo Anne - Your card is just beautiful! The colors and textures are perfect. I love that you used your own planter as an inspiration! Thanks so much for sharing such a gorgeous card!
