I don't know what drew me to the stamp set Eclectic Garden, but I love it. It's in the mini catalog on page 44 and in the new annual catalog on page 107 as well. I made a card using the set and it's one those that make me want to sing! I can't really carry a tune anymore so you don't want to witness that. So here is the picture.
I'm going to honest and tell you that I had help with the coloring. I cased Tammy Wilson's work. Her post can be found here. Tammy is one of our Stampin' Up! Artisans. She is good!
I started with a card base of Thick Basic White measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Score and fold at 4 1/4. Use a Bone Folder to burnish the fold.
Cut 2 pieces of the black dotted paper from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper. I'm not sure of this paper is still available. It was a Host Reward choice. Of course the paper can be substituted with something else. There is a new paper called Perfectly Penciled that would be perfect. The pieces measure 3/4 x 5 1/2. Glue one at the very top and one at the bottom.
Now who knew that the Rectangle Stitched dies would fit so perfectly across the card base. Cut 3 rectangles using the third smallest die from the larger group. I used Basic White.
Stamp the plants in the rectangles with Memento Black. Color with blends.
Blueberries: Granny Apple Green combo, Light So Saffron, Light Balmy Blue, Light Night of Navy
Radishes: Light Granny Apple Green, Old Olive combo, Fresh Freesia combo, Light Highland Heather
Flower: Polished Pink combo, Light Melon Mambo, Light Granny Apple Green, Old Olive combo
Glue all of these in the center of the card. They will overlap the designer paper some. I would start on one side and butt each piece against the other. It should fit. If there is any extra, I would just go trim on the paper trimmer.
The saying is from Easter Friends from the mini catalog. Stamp in black and cut out with the smallest of the Tailor Make Tag dies. Use Basic White.
Use the Black and White Gingham Ribbon to pull around to the front and tie in a bow. I ran the ribbon through the hole in the tag.
Add one of the 2021-2023 In Color Gems on the tag. I'm sure these are no longer available by now.
I hope you love this as much as I do. I'm so glad the stamp set carried over.
