Happy Thursday Peeps!!
Today I am sharing a card I made using the sketch this week on
I pulled out a fave set, Stippled Blossoms, sadly this set is on the retiring list. Sorry to see it go, but I am hoping the new catalog will have a lot of new sets that I love, fingers crossed.
Yesterday Hubby and I spent some time going to some flea markets, which always gets my primitive bone fired up!
This time I was looking for garden inspiration, things to use and repurpose in my new flower garden that I am doing this year.
I have several ideas, we will see if my vision works out like I am hoping.
Anyway when I sit down to make my card I had gardening on my mind and my love for primitive as well
I wanted to make something to echo those thoughts.
Woodgrain Background and roses, what could be better?
The woodgrain BG is stamped on Crumb Cake card stock with Crumb Cake ink, I believe, This is a piece I had stamped when I had my friends BG stamp here, so that was easy.
The flowers are Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral ink, the leaves are Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi.
I attached the flowers to a white piece with some foam tape and then tucked the leaves around here and there. I matted this piece with some Early Espresso card stock.
My strips across the bottom are two sizes of more Early Espresso card stock,
I stamped the "hello" sentiment with versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder.
The sentiment is from the Hello December stamp set and I just masked off the December portion.
I finished it off with a few enamel dots.
Thanks for coming by today.
