Well, we are having an interesting time. Something blew the electrics out, thankfully we have isolated it and now the only places without working plug sockets are the kitchen, landing and my bedroom, which I can live with until an electrician can get out to us. As long as they all have internet the family is happy and semi-peaceful 😆
I was so happy that this set was carried over from the mini catalogue, as I didn’t get a chance to purchase it before.
Art Gallery Stamp set and Floral Gallery Dies- Annual Catalogue page 13 and page 163
Card Base – Soft Succulent Cardstock 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ scored and folded @4 1/8″
1st layer – Gorgeous Grape Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″
2nd layer – Basic White Cardstock 5 3/8″ x 3 5/8″
Sentiment – Soft Succulent Cardstock 3″ x 3″
Adhesive Sheet 3″ x 3″
Highland Heather Grosgrain Ribbon – 4 1/2″
I coloured the basic pearls with the dark Highland Heather blends and left them to dry.
For the words I attached some of our Adhesive Sheet to the cardstock before die-cutting them so I just had to peel off the backing and stick them down. Much less mess than glue.
The flower is a two-step stamp. I stamped the full flower first in the lighter colour and then stamped the finer detail in the darker Gorgeous Grape.
I chose to put Happy Birthday inside my card, but there are various sentiments in this set that work with the large Die-cut words.
I love the way the purples of Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape work with the green of Soft Succulent. I have just decorated my bedroom a colour very close to soft succulent and my Ann Stokes fairy pictures on my wall have a lot of greens and purples in them. What are your favourite colour combinations?
Until next time, happy crafting
