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

Supplies:

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

Measurements:

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

Instructions:

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.

Ornate Garden Suite Thank You

Hello to you!  Today for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge we are using Terracotta Tile, Old Olive, and Crushed Curry.

CCMC611

These colors are featured in the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper!  Isn't that fun!  Here is my card.

CCMC#611 Ornate Thanks Card by Jo Anne Hewins

My project begins with a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of Old Olive card stock.  Fold at 4 1/4.

I have a piece of the green designer paper that is 1 1/2 x 4 that is placed vertically on the left side of center of the card.

My next piece of the designer paper is the small flowers paper.  It's cut to 2 1/2 x 5 1/4.  Run a length of the Crushed Curry Seam Binding across the center of this piece and tape to the back.  Add the layer to the card front.

The next layer is cut from the Stitched Nested Labels in Old Olive.  Stamp this layer with the word seriously from Ornate Thanks.  Use Old Olive ink.  I started near the top center of the layer and just built out from there.  Add to the card front with dimensionals.

CCMC #611 Ornate Thanks Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the large THANK YOU in Terracotta Tile on Whisper White.  Trim closely around the words.  Add to the card.  I tried to make the seriously show between the words.

Stamp three of the single flowers from Ornate Style in Memento Black.  Color in using the Light Old Olive Blend for the leaf, the Terracotta Tile marker from the 2019-2021 In Color Stampin' Write Markers, and the Crushed Curry marker from the Regals Stampin' Write Markers.  Fussy cut each and add to the label.  

Add a bow using the Crushed Curry Seam Binding with a glue dot.

CCMC #611 Ornate Thanks Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the sentiment inside the card again from Ornate Thanks.  Add 3 more flowers and color as on the front.

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #607 Ornate Garden Suite

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  We have a color challenge this week using Poppy Parade, Crushed Curry, and Garden Green.

CCMC607

I chose to use the Ornate Garden Suite.  I have fallen in love with it.

CCMC #607 Ornate Gardens by Jo Anne Hewins

I started with a card base of Poppy Parade that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Stamp around the edges of the card front with the single flower in Poppy Parade.

The vase is made from a piece of Crushed Curry check from the Regals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  The die is from the All Dressed Up dies.  It's the perfume bottle.  Color some of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding with a Dark Poppy Parade Blend and tie into a bow.  I use a bow maker.  Add to the neck of the bottle with a glue dot.

The next layer is Whisper White measuring 3 3/4 x 5.  Decide where the vase will be on this layer and remove it.  Then stamp the single flower stamp from Ornate Style and stamp as if they would be coming out of the vase.  Use Memento Black ink. Color the flowers with Light and Dark Poppy Parade Blends.  The center of the flowers are made using the Crushed Curry Stampin' Write Marker from the Regals Collection.  Color the leaves with the Garden Green ink pad and Blender Pens.

Run the Whisper White layer through your die cut machine with the Subtles 3D Embossing Folder.  Run through in a vertical orientation and then turn the paper to a horizontal orientation and run it through again.  This gives a linen look to the paper.

Add the vase to the card with glue.  I did add a piece of Poppy Parade paper as a base for the vase.  It is from the Brights 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  It measures 1/2 x 2 1/2.  Part of the vase overlaps the flowers that I added.  That's why there is one on dimensionals that overlaps the vase.  

CCMC #607 Ornate Gardens Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp 6 single flowers on Whisper White scrap paper.  Color as above.  These will be cut out by hand.  Add all of the flowers with a dimensional.  Make sure that one of them overlaps the lip of the bottle.  One of the flowers goes at the end of the Poppy Parade base at the bottom.

The saying is from the Botanical Prints Product Medley.  Stamp on white in Poppy Parade and trim around it.

Finish the card front with Basic Rhinestones that have been colored with a Dark Poppy Parade Blend.

CCMC #607 Ornate Gardens Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here's the inside of the card.  The saying is from the Ornate Thanks stamp set.  Stamp in Poppy Parade.  Add a few flowers and color them the same as the front of the card.

Color Fusers Blog Hop for April, 2020

Welcome to the Color Fusers Blog Hop for April of 2020.  You might have just come from Melissa's blog.  That girl is so creative!  This month we are using the colors Soft Sea Foam, Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue, and Blueberry Bushel.

No photo description available.

I'm using products from the Ornate Garden Suite for my card.  This suite is now available for you to purchase as an early release.  It will be in the upcoming annual catalog.  Here is the card I made.

Color Fusers for April Ornate Gardens Project by Jo Anne Hewins

To be honest with you, I am not an ornate person.  With that being said, I have fallen in love with this suite!

My card base is Soft Sea Foam that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and is folded at 4 1/4.

The next layer is Balmy Blue.  I used the 2nd largest die from the Ornate Layers dies.  My paper was 3 1/2 x 5 before cutting.  Glue this to the center of the card.

The sentiment is from the Ornate Thanks stamp set.  Stamp in Blueberry Bushel on Whisper White.  Cut out with the smallest rectangle die from the Ornate Layers dies.

Stamp the large cluster of flowers from the Ornate Style stamp set on Whisper White in Blueberry Bushel.  Color this using the Light and Dark Soft Sea Foam Blends, the Light and Dark Balmy Blue Blends, and the Light and Dark Granny Apple Green Blends.  You will need to fussy cut this.

You also need three of the single flowers.  Color with the same blends and fussy cut.

Color Fusers for April Ornate Gardens Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Figure out the placement you want for all of these elements.  Then remove and stamp the my friend in Blueberry Bushel.  This stamp is part of the Ornate Thanks stamp set.

Add the large flower cluster with dimensionals.  Now add the sentiment being careful that the placement goes with the rest of the sentiment stamped on the Balmy Blue layer.  The Thank You will need dimensionals on part and just glue where it overlaps the flowers.

Now add the small single flowers.  Two of them are on dimensionals and one is glued to the blue layer.

Color Fusers for April Ornate Garden Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of the card.  All is from the Ornate Style stamp set.

So this suite has a core of two stamp sets and two die sets.  They can all be bought separately or as bundles or you can purchase the entire suite with one order number.  The Ornate Thanks stamp set is bundled with the Ornate Borders dies and the Ornate Style stamp set is bundled with the Ornate Layers dies.
