Your Creative Connection: Fresh from the Garden Video

Your Creative connection Logo
Today I want to share another card inspired by the “Your Creative Connection” demonstrator group that I belong to and our theme this tour is  “Fresh from the Garden”.   I was inspired by this theme to make up a card that showcases a beautiful bouquet that might have been something that I picked fresh from my garden.  See the full detail of how I made this card in my video below.

Fresh Flowers from Bloom & Grow

I LOVE peonies, so I wanted a stamp set that had peonies and Bloom & Grow seemed perfect.  And bonus that it has matching dies to cut out the flowers. And then I used the cute milk jug from the Country Home stamp set as a container for the flower bouquet.

I also love the sayings in the Bloom & Grow stamp set.  Not only are they lovely sayings, but they also have that fixed font which is so “in” right now.

All the supplies I used on the card are listed below and you can click on any product image, at the end of this post, to see them in my Online Store.

There are a couple of different tips on this card, including colouring with Blends markers, that I show in the video.

Be sure to watch for:

  • what is the background paper?
  • how I did the texture on the milk can
  • how I added shading to the milk can
  • how I make the flower “white”
  • what I used for the edge embellishment
  • what I added to the inside of the card
  • what was the last thing I added to the card
