Today's creation uses another of the two- step stamp sets currently on offer with 20% off the regular price. The Greenhouse Garden set is reduced from £22.95 to £18.36 (offer valid 1-31 August 2010). Please email me if you'd like to order it.
The card layout and the gift bag design are identical to those we used at the recent Summer Stamptacular event.
I've been asked by a few people who couldn't attend the Summer Stamptacular, whether the tutorials are available for purchase by email and so I've put the tutorial for this set and the waterfall card together as a mini tutorial bundle, available for purchase using the "Greenhouse Garden Mini Bundle" Buy Now button on the right hand side menu. Click here to see the cards.
If you'd like to make this version using the purchased instructions then you'll need to make the following substitutions:
Regal Rose cardstock/ink = Chocolate Chip cardstock/ink
Regal Rose ink (for stamping down back of card) = Tempting Turquoise ink
Pretty in Pink cardstock/ink = Bashful Blue cardstock/ink
Tea Party DSP = Sweet Pea DSP Stack (available while stocks last but no later than 30 September 2010)
Whisper White Satin Ribbon = Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon
Dazzling Diamonds = mix of Turquoise (Fine Cosmo glitter set) and Dazzling Diamonds
For each flower I inked the base flower with Bashful Blue and then used a sponge dauber to add Tempting Turquoise around the edges of the petals (this gives a softer look than the rock 'n' roll technique which is another option). This was stamped onto Whisper White card and then the detail stamped with Chocolate Chip ink.
Extra flowers were added to the opposite corner of the bag and a large flower stamped and an eyelet and elastic cord added as a gift tag. The handle tabs weren't stamped but Jumbo Brads were added instead.
Thanks for stopping by.
