Eden's Garden and Heartfelt Wishes

Hello and welcome to my blog!  Today I am hopping along with other members of Bruno and Kylie Bertucci's Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator Training Program.  I have learned so much through this training group since I first became a demonstrator that I had to participate in it once again as there is always something to learn.  We love doing our Monthly Team Blog Hops with our general theme for all the hops being customer and team thank you cards.

Today's Project

Today's project is a thank you card that I am providing to my customers this month as a thank you for their orders.  New catalogs are always such exciting times with lots of new things to see and inspire us to want to create even more than we do.  I love spoiling my customers and I hope that they enjoy my gratitude as much as I enjoy sharing new ideas and techniques with them.

Project Details

A Clean and Simple card for my customers this month showcases the early release of Eden's Garden.  The largest image was stamped with So Saffron ink and sponged with Pear Pizzazz ink using a Blending Brush for a soft effect.  You may also use a sponge dauber.  The image was cleaned and reinked after each stamped image to prevent contamination of ink colors on the ink pads.

The Heartfelt Wishes sentiment was colored with a Soft Succulent Stampin' Write Marker, as the entire sentiment was not being used, and stamped onto a scrap piece of Basic White Cardstock.  The sentiment was then die-cut using the 2nd smallest narrow rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

The Basic White Cardstock layer was adhered to a Crumb Cake layer.  Linen Thread was double wrapped around the adhered layers and tie-off with a bow.  The sentiment die-cut was adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Two additional Crumb Cake scrap layers were cut to size to level layer up the adhered layers for a slight floating effect.  The layers were adhered to a Soft Succulent Card Base.  Genial Gems were the perfect finishing touch to compliment the soft colors of stamped images.

The layers were replicated for the inside of the card along with stamping.  The envelope front and flap were also stamped to provide a sneak peek as to what's inside for the recipient.
