Good Morning! On Saturday we had our Inkin’ Krew Ornate Garden Facebook Event where we shared lots of projects made with the new Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite. Did you get a chance to tune in? We had several Facebook Live video tutorials and I shared the tutorial for this card. I used the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style bundle along with the Ornate Garden specialty designer series paper and the Grace’s Garden and Daisy Lane stamp sets. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
Unfortunately I can’t link to the Facebook video ☹️, but it is on my YouTube Channel and you can view it here.
I stamped the sentiment from the Grace’s Garden photopolymer stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a small panel of So Saffron vellum. Be careful because the ink will take longer to dry on the vellum and will be easy to smear if you handle it too early, so I put it aside to let it dry. Using the Leaf Punch, I punched a leaf cluster from Old Olive card stock. I stamped three of the small petal clusters from the Daisy Lane cling stamp set with So Saffron ink after stamping off. I cut them out with the Medium Daisy Punch. I gently curved the petals on the daisies with my fingers, curving the bottom layer up, the top layer down and the middle layer alternating up and down. I adhered the layers with a dot of multipurpose liquid in the center and topped it off with a large gold faceted gem.
I cut the fancy frame from the Ornate Layers Dies from Terracotta Tile card stock. After cleaning the gazillion little pieces that were cut out – this is such an ornate frame and I love it! – I aligned the 3rd smallest of the Stitched Rectangles Dies in the center and cut out the center. I love how these dies leave a stitched edge on both the inside and outside! With the frame ready, I began to assemble my card base.
I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden specialty designer series paper to a Terracotta Tile card base with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the frame to the vellum with pieces of dimensionals. The dimensionals on the side will extend beyond the vellum to adhere it to the card base, but the top and bottom won’t, so I added a strip of multipurpose liquid glue to the back of the vellum that is hidden by the frame. I adhered it to the card base. I adhered the leaf with multipurpose liquid glue and the flower with glue dots. I finished it off with a Terracotta Tile bow.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the little flourish from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style cling stamp set in Early Espresso ink at the top of a Whisper White panel. I added a strip of the Ornate Garden specialty DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
Now, I have to admit that I did some surgery to my card after the video ended. In realtime, I stamped the sentiment too hight and crooked as you can see in the picture here. So I snipped the dimensionals behind the frame and trimmed the vellum (luckily it was just stuck down behind the frame. I then re-stamped the sentiment properly and re-attached the frame to the vellum and then adhered it to the card base. It looks much better and from the pictures above, I don’t think you can tell that it needed to be fixed!
I hope that you enjoyed the Inkin’ Krew Ornate Garden event if you got a chance to join it Saturday afternoon. And I hope you got a lot of inspiration and ideas on how you will use the products in the Ornate Garden Suite.
