Greenhouse Garden and Shimmer Paint.

Hi readers,

I have a cute little project for you today that uses one of Stampin' Up!'s fabulous 2-Step Stamp sets named Greenhouse Garden. You can find it on page 81 of the 2010 - 11 Idea Book and Catalogue.

The 2-Step stamp sets make it wonderfully easy to create  realistic images - all you need to do is use your trusty Stamp-a-majig to align the two stamps.


I made this little 3 x 3 inch note card by cutting some card into 3 x 6 inch pieces and folding it in half.



Stamp the floral image onto Vanilla card stock using Bravo Burgundy Classic Ink by Stampin' Up! Align the details (stamped in black) using the Stamp-A-Majig. You can't see it in the photo but in real life I stamped the details with Champagne Shimmer Mist first then rotated the stamp a little and re-stamped in black. there is quite a nice detail visible on the card. 
Cut out the image  using Paper Snips.

Next I took a piece of River Rock card and ran it through the Big Shot using the Elegant Lines Embossing folder.


Cut down to the appropriate size and apply Champagne Shimmer Mist with a Sponge Dauber. That way you can cover some of the background as well as the raised areas of the embossed card. Sponge the edges with Bravo Burgundy ink and mat onto Bravo Burgundy card stock.

Attach all of this to the card front. 

Stamp out one of the Teeny Tiny Sentiments, and punch out with the Jewellery Tag Medium Punch. Dust the tag edges with a little Bravo Burgundy and tie through with some Linen Thread.

Raise the flower image on one dimensional, tie the Linen thread around the dimensional and attach all to the card. Finished.


I think it took me longer to write this post than it did to actually make the card. They would make a lovely gift tag or group 4 - 6 together, add some of Stampin Up's Mini Square Envelopes, tie with some ribbon and you have a lovely gift.
