Out of the selection of designer series paper I was allowed to purchase during my demonstrator preorder from the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog, the Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper was my favorite! I’m so glad to be finished with the retirement lists and just start working on new stuff! Plus I have a new camera for taking pictures of my cards and projects for my blog so I am having to learn how to use it and get the photos off! Always a learning curve!
Here is my new card made with Melon Mambo card stock and two patterns from Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper.
I did a lot of fun things on this card! The button (Very Vintage Buttons) in the middle of the flower started out plain. Since I already had some Melon Mambo Embossing Powder, I decided to try embossing the button! I put some Glue Dots on the back of the button so I could hold it from the back with my long tweezers. You could use anything you had. I dipped it onto a Versamark Ink Pad and then embossed with the embossing powder and Heat Tool! I like the way it turned out!The very center didn’t pick up any Versamark but that is covered with the Baker’s Twine bow.
To make the flower (since I couldn’t find my Paper Daisies!), I punched three Whisper White flowers with the Blossom Punch and snipped the petals with my Paper Snips. The layers are glued together and the flower adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. There is half of a Tea Lace Paper Doily stuck in behind the flower.
The greeting is stamped on Whisper White and also on Melon Mambo card stock and punched out with the new Artisan Punch. Then I used my Paper Snips again to cut out just the greeting portion and adhered that to the Melon Mambo piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
