Gingham Garden Sweet Suite


Hi there everyone!
I want to start out saying SO SORRY about my blogging lately.  I feel like I am barely keeping up 🙁  It will get better – I HOPE!  

At any rate I have a couple of cards to show you.  Again these are cards I made for Patty Bennett’s guest design.  The month of July I am using Kind & Cozy and Polka Dot Pieces stamp sets along with the Gingham Garden suite of products! (which is so sweet)… 
The second card down below is using Tea Party stamp set and Afternoon Picnic DSP, but it was too cute not to show you!

This card is pretty self explanatory to copy.  The layer under the circle is a deco framelit, to get the rim of the punched gingham circle I simply stamped the gingham circle first, punched it out using the 2-1/2″ circle punch.  Then I found the circle framelit that best fit the center of the circle and used the circle framelit to cut out the center.  Then I used dimesionals to pop up the circle around the cup and sentiment.  For a tip… after you get the center of your circle cut out, lay the circle down on the deco label.  Then stamp your cut and sentiment, this way you know your stamps will be in the correct place before you put your circle piece on the card with dimensionals 🙂

Check out below for instructions on making this card

Tea Party Card:
1) Cut your very vanilla piece of cardstock at 4-1/4″ x 11″, fold it in half.  The card will open to the side
2) Cut Elegant Eggplant at 4″ x 5-1/4″ and layer it onto your very vanilla piece
3) Use your largest deco framelit to cut a piece of the Afternoon Picnic DSP, or you could use a piece of DSP from the Regals DSP Paper Stack, in crushed curry
4) Cut the strip of Afternoon Picnic DSP at 1-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
5) Use your circle framelits to cut the next size up circle in Elegant Eggplant.  The next size up from the 
2-1/2″ punch.  You can hold the framelit up to see which one it is.
6) On a piece of Very vanilla cardstock, stamp your flower image.  I used the Tea Party stamp set, and colored with my Stampin’ Write markers onto the stamp.  Then I breathe on it like I would for fogging up a window.  This moistens the inks before you stamp them.
7) Punch out your stamped image and layer it on.  I used dimesionals.
Last but not least add a sentiment (I used the one from A Dozen Thoughts) and then your simply pressed clay flower.  To make my flower Crushed Curry, I simply pressed the top of the flower directly into the ink pad and let it dry before I adhered it to the card.
