Today the Design Team is working with wonderful Vintage Garden sets - There are 3 mini sets - Vintage Garden Produce, Vintage Garden Flowers, Vintage Garden Appleblossom Seeds and a full size set, Vintage Seed Garden.
For my first project, I made a card using the vintage carrot image from Vintage Garden Produce, inking it with orange and green and stamping it on a panel of Rustic Cream card stock. I stamped the word 'carrot' right over the image. I layered the stamped panel over the Rustic Cream card using foam tape and sponged the edges of the card with Antique Linen. Very clean and simple focusing on the lovely detail of the image! This makes a lovely note card.
Vintage Garden Flowers. I just love the smell of hyacinths when they bloom in my garden around Easter time each spring! This would make a lovely bookmark for a friend who gardens or who just loves flowers!
spritzing it with water and dragging the tag through it. I dried it with my hot gun and stamped the hyacinth and Latin name with black ink. I colored the plant using Cut-n-Dry pen nibs and distress inks. I stamped the background using a stamp from the Chicken Wire set and the dotted background from Off Beat Backgrounds. Then I sponged the edges of the tag with Scattered Straw and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks. I layered the tag to a piece of purple card stock, added 3 rhinestones and looped two colored seam tapes and a shimmer cord through the hole.
For my last project today - I made a card using the stamp sold singly called Vintage Garden Appleblossom Seeds. The sentiment is from a set we'll be previewing tomorrow and the background panel is from Pic-Nic Patterns.
