With the small space in which I now have to work, I really do have to put things away as soon as I use them or my work table gets totally out of hand. So, yes, after I finished my last card, I did manage to put most stuff away to get ready for my next project – except that I didn’t bother taking the Vases Builder Punch back to its designated spot because it’s too far away. I would have had to take at least 10 steps to get there.
So this morning, while I had the new Garden Lane Designer Series Paper (DSP) out to think about what I might do with it, there on my work table was that punch, crying out to be used just one more time before being put away. So I punched a piece of the Garden Lane DSP and things went down hill (up hill?) from there!
Both the top DSP layer and the vase are made from prints in the Garden Lane DSP. The color featured in the layer is Soft Sea Foam, and there is also some of that color, along with Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow. Does that sound “green” to you? This whole set of paper is definitely green, with those 3 colors as well as Garden Green and Mint Macaron. Garden it is!
Of course I had to get the Varied Vases Stamp Set out again, and once again I used the double flower that I used in my last post. This time, though, I added a little leaf to the stem, mostly in an effort to bring some greet to the stamped area.
For my accent color, I chose the new Terracotta Tile, both in the cardstock I used as a mat and in the ink I used to fill in the flowers. This is a 2-step stamp set, with a stamp for the stem/flowers and a stamp for the flower fill. It’s the same with that little leaf.
Once I’d die-cut the ovals for the center of the card, I had to decide what kind of card I wanted this to be. Then I remembered that I had checked my records to see who had gifted me with the Varied Vases Bundle during my volcano evacuation time last year. So there was no question that this was going to be a Thank You card, and it will go in the mail to her tomorrow.
Now I really do have to get back to my Orchid cards. I spent most of the weekend cutting all the pieces I need for all 18 of the cards. Now I have to start putting ink to paper before finally putting them all together this coming weekend. I hope you have something equally fun to do in your crafting area!
