Grace’s Garden is the perfect bundle for Andy! He loves to color and use our die cut machine! Take a look at the card he created with the bundle.
Andy’s card features the Grace’s Garden stamp set from the January-June Mini catalog. Great news, this set is not retiring and will be part of the 2020 Annual Catalog! Continue reading to find out the steps Andy took to create his card.
Start with a base of Old Olive card stock. Next, add a piece of the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to your base.
You will need to do a little measuring with your Stampin’ Trimmer to cut the layers featured under the stamped images. The Whisper White layer is 4 5/8″ X 3 3/8″. I find the easiest way to cut those measurements is to count the tick marks from the inch mark. Next, cut the Old Olive piece at 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″. Then cut another Whisper White piece at 4 3/8″ X 3″.
Use a Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend to shade a sky onto the smallest piece of Whisper White card stock. Use an Old Olive Stampin’ Blend to create the look of grass.
Now it’s time to stamp. Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the images. Choose the Stampin’ Blends you would like to use to color your stamped images.
Use the Garden Gateway dies to cut out the stamped images. Then place the die cuts onto the shaded Whisper White layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the greeting, use a stamp from the set on Whisper White card stock inked with a Real Red stamp pad.
