Graceful Garden Four Ways

February 12, 2019

Today’s cards are the result of another afternoon of colouring in the air conditioning trying to escape the heat in Brisbane.  For this card I stamped the flower from the Graceful Garden stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The flower is coloured using Real Red and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  I stamped the Buffalo Check Background onto Whisper White card using Old Olive ink.  To make this truly successful I used the Stamparatus so that I could re-ink and stamp as many times as I wished to get a perfect image.  I cut Real Red card using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and attached it to Whisper White card.  I attached the Buffalo Check piece onto the left hand side of the Whisper White card, partially covering the Real Red rectangle.   The whole piece is attached to scored and folded Real Red card.  I cut a slightly smaller rectangle from Whisper White card using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  I stamped the background image from the Graceful Garden stamp set using Smoky Slate ink.  I attached the flower to the stamped panel and then the card front using dimensionasl.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the small flower from the Graceful Garden stamp set onto the upper right hand corner of Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black inkThe image is coloured using the Real Red and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.

As I said I coloured several flowers in the one sitting.  The second card uses Cherry Cobbler card for the card base and the larger rectangle.   The flower is coloured using Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  The Buffalo Check is stamped in Old Olive ink and the background in Smoky Slate ink.  The smaller flower is also used to decorate the inside of the card.

The third card uses Lovely Lipstick and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends to colour the flowers.  The Buffalo Check Background is stamped in Granny Apple Green ink and the background in Smoky Slate ink.  The card base and large rectangle use Lovely Lipstick card.

The last card is coloured using Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  The Buffalo Check Background is stamped using Old Olive ink and the background using Smoky Slate ink.  The card base and the large rectangle use Rich Razzleberry card.

So there you have it, four gorgeous (well I think they are gorgeous) cards using the beautiful flower from the Graceful Garden stamp set.  I really wanted to showcase the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and the beautiful Buffalo Check background, did I do it?  I would love to hear what you think.

Bye for now,

Kris
