I am back!!  It has been way too long since I was posting regularly and I have missed it, and making cards.  The Flu hit me Christmas Eve and then my husband.  Finally we are back to semi-normal.  And if you know me, that is close enough. LOL!!!

My first play with new products for the year is a mix of On Line Exclusives and Sale-A-Bration items.  And since the cold is hitting me hard this year, I have opted for more of a springtime card.  It is wishful thinking.


Stampin' Up!, Garden Meadow, Flight & Airy, Rainbow Adhesive Dots, Jackie Beers


Stamp Bundle

This sweet garden set is appropriately named Garden Meadow.  It is a Bundle.  You have probably seen the beautiful cards with the arched window look.  That is a die in this set.  I opted for a simpler card to get back in the swing of things. Please give the OnLine Exclusives a look.  There are some beautiful sets there.  Plus a few of the staple items are in that section as well.  The machine cutting plates are one thing.

The stamps used are all from the set.  I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with a variety of Stampin’ Blends.  Boho Blue is the base of everything, with the accompanying Pecan Pie.  All are listed in the supply list at the bottom of the post.  The watering can I did die cut with the matching die to use it as the grounding piece for the sentiment.


The card base is Boho Blue to match the colored image.  And the floral DSP piece has Boho Blue as well as the Flirty Flamingo and Bubble Bath colors of the flowers.  I added the DSP piece of Pecan Pie to highlight the dirt and the color used on the sentiment.  Plus I just love the simple detail on that Pecan Pie piece of DSP.  And the DSP is one of the Free with a qualifying order in Sale-A- Bration.  It is the sweet Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper.  There are gorgeous card examples in the SAB Catalog using this paper.


The watering can supporting the sentiment is a different look.  I like something unexpected to be highlighted.  Just simple trimming of the end of the sentiment strip gives a little more detail.  And the finishing touch is a couple of the new Rainbow Adhesive Back Dots.  I chose to use a trio of them in the colors of the flowers.  They are Bubble Bath, Fresh Freesia, and Flirty Flamingo.  A perfect finish to the card.
