Hello everyone !
Welcome to our monthly hop blog called the Squirrels Stash bash.
Our main concept is simple : we have to make a project with supplies we don’t use enough. Each month we have a theme and a technique, sketch or type of supply to use to make our project.
This month the theme was Botanical and we had to follow a color palette generated by a photo of one of Anna’s plants
So welcome to the new hoppers and for my regular viewers, thank you for stopping by today!
For this month card I wanted to use the Simon Says Stamps Lavender Garden stamp set. I never had the chance to use it and it was perfect for the theme. I had various designs in mind but I choose one which was supposed to cover a square card. Unfortunately, I had an issue with my die cutting machine and it ruined a big part of my coloring. I had to improvise and decided to go with an other design I had in mind. To be honest, I think I like this one better but I dismissed it at first because there was so much fussy cutting !
So, I will give you the indications for this card regardless of the extra steps I had to make
So first, with the help of my LDRS Pirouette Pattern Templates I stamped two of my images ( the branches three times and the branches with flowers twice.) with my Bee Creative No line coloring inkpad. I colored them with my markers and fussy cut them.
Then, I stamped the watering can and three little flowers, colored them and fussy cut them.
For the base of my card, I used my LDRS Slimline Basket Weave Pocket Die Set. I splattered the front panel with watercolors and glued it on a white plain panel. Then, I matted and layered it with two pink cardstocks.
After that, I glued my floral image on it.
And finally, I glued the three flowers on the watering can and glued it on my card with foam pads.
Et voilà !
May the craft be with you !
