Good Afternoon! I do hope you are having a wonderful day and the new Year is treating you well. Today I have my Garden Thoughts card using the Garden Meadow Bundle.
Do you ever wonder, while walking around a garden, whether it’s yours or a public garden, and start thinking of people that particular plants remind you of? I know I do. When we first looked at this house it had all of 2 plants and 2 fruit trees. One of those plants was a hydrangea and I immediately had thoughts of my Mum. She loved Hydrangeas and she had at least one in every house we lived in. Now it seems she also has one in our new house, every time I water it I do think of her and smile.
That’s enough about me … now onto today’s card …
Garden Meadow Bundle
Today’s fun card uses the Garden Meadow Bundle. I really enjoyed stamping, colouring and cutting out the images. I cant tell you how much I love the coordinating products from Stampin’ Up! All the coloured images are coloured with Stampin’ Blends and die cut using the Garden Meadow Dies.
This Bundle has so much potential for cards, scrapbook layouts and other projects.
My card measures 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ or 12cm x 12cm. I actually started with my white layer. Can you see the wire wreath on the card?
I saw this on a card online and tried to work out how they did it. I did try tracing circle dies but couldnt get the right sizing. Then I noticed the spool from a used roll of ribbon and tried that – it was perfect! So traced three just offsetting a little to create my ‘wire wreath’. To make my card a little rustic I used my Pecan Pie Stampin’ Write Marker to flick on the card creating a splatter affect. Once the images were stamped, coloured and die cut I played with placing for a while. I had some white space left so popped in some metallic birds and rhinestone jewels.
When stamping the images I stamped a couple of extra rainboots … they walked their way to the inside of my card …
Mind you it took some deliberation as to which colours to put on the front and which to put inside!
