Set a Garden Scene with the Glorious Floral Stem by Jean Okimoto

P1040384

The Glorious Floral Stem sets the scene for an afternoon of spring gardening with the Vintage Watering Can and Stitched Boots.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here with a garden greeting today.

Cut watercolor paper with the  3" x 4-¼" Rectangle Basics die.  Paint in shades of green, yellow and orange from the Melon Melody Kaleidacolor inkpad.  Spritz it with water, dry it for a few minutes, then heat-set with an embossing tool.

Stamp the flowers from the Garden Sketches Clear Stamps Set on watercolor ink with Nocturne VersaFine Clair.  Quickly emboss it with detail clear powder.  Place the die from the matching Garden Sketches Die Set over the image and sponge it with Cheerful VersaFine Clair.  Diecut it, and two more.

Cut Glorious Floral Stem from green cardstock, remove the flowers.

Cut Vintage Watering Can from copper metallic cardstock.

Attach glossy laminate over Key Lime Dots cardstock to create a shiny surface for the rainboots.  Diecut it with Stitched Rainboots.

Stamp the greeting from the Garden Sketches set with Nocturne and emboss it.  Cut it with the matching die.

Attach the diecuts to a top-folded A-2 card of green textured cardstock.

Add yellow-green gem stickers.

Mix and match your Memory Box stamps and dies as we did here - it gives you so many additional options for unique cards.  Use your supplies in out-of-the box ways - you'll be surprised at how many combinations you'll discover!

Special thanks for everyone who took last Sunday's GREEN GREETINGS class.  Recycling can be a creative way to add texture, dimension and interest to your cards.  Thanks too - Ann and Becca - for helping everyone fill their baskets and take advantage of last weekend's spring sale.

Thanks for stopping by...
