How Does Your Garden Grow?

If you do some gardening, you’re doing a whole lot better than me. I love looking at gardens and admire beautiful gardens but green thumb, I am not. However, the Garden Shed stamp set got me the moment I saw it. I told you, I love looking at gardens – ok, a garden shed in this case!

I have also included some fabulous new products on this card. I’d like to introduce you to Just Jade – one of the new In-Colours. The garden shed image has been layered onto a Just Jade cardstock panel. I think this might be my favourite of the 5 new In-Colours.

To colour the stamped image, I used a combination of several Stampin’ Blends. In my product list at the bottom of this post, I’ve listed the colours I’ve used on the shed and the flower. Just get a feel when you’re colouring and you will find it is so relaxing. if you’re anything like me, you’ll end up adding a bit of this and a bit of that and coming up with a new colour. The sunflower is from the new Celebrate Sunflowers bundle. This is the baby flower in the set. There’s a Mama one as well which would take up a whole card front and is absolutely gorgeous.

I couldn’t help but use a strip of corrugated cardstock for a rustic feel. This Corrugated embossing folder is retiring and you are going to want to get your hands on it if you don’t own it. It’s one I have used many times as I love it. I’ve added a strip of ribbon trim, coloured with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend to highlight the sentiment.

Kre8tors Blog Hop August Color Challenge

I couldn’t go past the Ornate Garden suite. As I thought about what to create, I realized I hadn’t really posted much with this suite so it was about time! The Specialty Designer Series Paper has pretty florals with some gold foil designs. Some sheets can even be coloured in, giving you many options. This card is very simple to recreate but looks quite elaborate. Those Ornate Frames are just so pretty you really can leave the elements of the suite to do the work for you. 

The Whisper White panel in the centre has been embossed with the Ornate Floral embossing folder which is so detailed and pretty. The Flirty Flamingo flowers have been separated from one of the Ornate Borders dies. By doing this, I was able to a lovely sprig for my card. 

The Ornate Garden suite is an early release from the new Annual Catalogue and is available for purchase right now. You are currently visiting Rochelle Laird-Smith in Australia. Products required to make this project are listed at the bottom of this post.
