Ideas for Ornate Garden Suite
I have so many ideas of cards and you can make with the new Ornate Garden Suite. I made this card wanting to focus on greenery in this beautiful bouquet and to show that you can still “colour” white flowers. The Ornate Garden Suite is a bunch of products that will be in the Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue that starts in June (see more about the catalogues here). Stampin’ Up! has released this suite of products early so we can get a jump start on pretty spring ideas. See more about all the items available here.
Here’s all the colours I used on this card. You can get a full list of supplies at the end of this post. And if you want to see other Colour Combinations have a look at this Pinterest board.
On this card, I used these items from the Ornate Garden Suite:
I also used my Blends Alcohol markers from Stampin’ Up! to colour in the image (see more about Blends here). I coloured all of the flower images with two different colour combos of markers. And then I coloured a soft halo, using the Pool Party Blends Combo markers around the edge of the image to really make it pop. The card almost looks like it was watercoloured. You can see the full list of Stampin’ Up! supplies I used at the end of this post.
I demonstrated how I made this card to my VIP Group in the Stamp Playground. I do weekly videos of different card ideas in this Facebook group. And all the videos are available to view anytime. Do you want to be a VIP? Click here for more info.
The image from the Ornate Style stamp set is so pretty, I didn’t want to overwhelm this card with a large saying, which is why I picked the Label Me Bold stamp set. I’ve added instructions on how I made this card below.
- Fold the Whisper White cardstock in half to form the card base.
- Stamp the flower image with Memento Black ink.
- Use the Blends Markers to colour in the image. Finish the colouring by around the outside of the image with the light Pool Party marker.
- Run the Granny Apple Green card stock through your die cutting machine with the embossing folder.
- With the border die, cut the edge of the Daffodil Delight cardstock.
- Attach the embossed cardstock to the card base.
- Attach the Early Espresso cardstock to the front of the card with dimensionals.
- Attach the stamped image to the Daffodil edge. Then attach to the Early Espresso mat with dimensionals.
- Stamp the word “hello” with Early Espresso ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.
- Cut out the saying with Paper Snips scissors.
- Attach the saying to the front of the card.
