Today I share some projects that we created during a recent in person class using the Boughs and Blossoms Bundle.
The Catalogue is always a fabulous source of inspiration and sometimes CASing a project is a good starting point. A card using this bundle in the catalogue caught my eye, so I set to recreating it my way.
Creating my way
Starting with a Pool Party cardbase, I added a Timber Embossed matting layer of the same colour. Embossing helps add texture and interest with little fuss.
Using a Water Painter and a mix of Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green, I swished colour to off cuts of Shimmery White cardstock. Once dry, I used the Bough Punch to punch out a pile of leaves and a few blank buds. With the buds, I added colour where needed. I like the variation that using a water painter gives to the leaves.
On more Shimmery White cardstock, three flowers from the stamp set were stamped in Calypso Coral before fussy cutting. Arranging a wreath, I added the stamped flowers allowing space for a die cut sentiment.
This second card started life the same but with a randomly stamped matting layer. Tone on tone I used the same Pool Party ink as the cardstock.
Having cut a panel of shimmery White cardstock the same width of the card, I set to stamping the flowers. Using a Post it Note, I masked the focal flower to be able to stamp flowers either side that would sit behind. The masks in place helped when I added the Pear Pizzazz leaves. This was all fussy cut and added with Dimensionals to allow for some punched leaves and buds to be added behind.
A mixed Die cut and stamped sentiment helped complete this card.
This beautiful stamp set is due to retire, so you’ll be wise to add this to your basket soon. Include my Shopping Code at check out and you’ll receive a Free gift and download of the All Star Tutorial Bundle from that month.
I hope you’ve liked my share with your today and I’ve inspired you to use up scraps of Shimmery White cardstock.
