So, I’m continuing my week of CASing the catalogue, and today I’m sharing a card using Garden in Bloom. I just love this stamp set, and while not new it is still one of my favourites. Its a great stamp set for a heap of techniques; its intended as a 2-step stamping set, but I love using it with watercolour, and heat embossing too!
This card really caught my eye in the catalogue, the more I looked the more details I spotted – Love that!
So, first off there is the stamping; Garden In Bloom stamped in Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz and Sweet Sugarplum. Then a layer of Vellum, cut slightly smaller than the stamped layer, is added. I love adding Vellum to my cards but adhering it is always tricky. Here the Vellum is attached with a heap of Fast Fuse Adhesive underneath the embellishment, and I also added 3 very small blobs of Fine Tipped glue on white bits of the stamped area – and you can’t see it because it dries totally clear! Yay!
The embellishment is a combination of a strip of Affectionately Yours Speciality Designer Series Paper, Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon, and loops of Cooper Metallic Thread. All layered underneath the sentiment, along with a bow of Whisper White bakers twine.
