Happy Monday Everyone ~ I spent some time in my studio yesterday and this Soft and Pretty Garden Lane Designer Series Paper Card is one of the cards I created.
I had a great time at the pool yesterday morning. We went up at 9:30 and floated around until 11:30. There were only a few other people there so it was nice and quiet. Today I have water aerobics and then I will play in my studio. I have some techniques I want to try and play with to create some backgrounds that I can then use for my cards. This way I have some ideas ready to be used when I need to make a card quickly. I am planning a new series for my blog. Make sure you come back on Saturday to see what I will be doing!
dfToday I am sharing another card using the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper. This is number 9 using this paper. If you did not see the first one, here is where you will find my Stampin’ Up Garden Lane Designer Series Paper Week first post. This is the last paper from this pack that I had not used. I have created an idea for each of the papers with some cards using more than 1 paper. This is gorgeous neutral paper that lends itself to easily be used with any image you want to use it with. For today’s card I took a piece of designer series paper that measured 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″. I also had a piece of Whisper White that measured 2″ x 4″. Using the Butterfly Wishes stamp set, I colored the limb using Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam markers and stamped it onto the white piece. I added the stamped white piece to the piece of designer series paper making sure to keep it close to the top. I then tore off a strip from the bottom of the designer series paper using the bottom of the white piece as a guide. I stamped 2 of the flowers from the stamp set on scrap paper using Petal Pink ink and fussy cut them out. Using the same stamp and the same ink, I stamped the flower across the middle of the Garden Green card base that measures 4 1/4″ x 11″ to create a tent fold in about a 2 1/2″ section. The designer series paper panel was added to the top of card base leaving a small space at the top. Using a piece of Whisper White that measures 1/2″ x 4″ the sentiment was stamped using Petal Pink ink. The white piece was then attached to the strip of designer series paper that was torn off the larger panel. When you attach it the strip you want the torn edge of the designer series paper at the top and the white strip will be offset from the designer series paper so the torn edge shows. This strip piece was attached to the card base at the bottom of the stamped flower strip. Some Whisper White baker’s twine was wrapped around the tent fold card base and tied in a bow. I used a glue dot to hold the bow and the 2 pieces of twine close to where the twine crosses. To finish the card the fussy cut flowers were added to the branch using dimensionals. Here is my completed Soft and Pretty Garden Lane Designer Series Paper Card.
