I have combined three of my favourite products from the January to June Mini Catalogue in today's card. These are Greenhouse Garden bundle, the Bough Punch and the Abstract Beauty 4x6" Specialty Designer Series Paper. You can see these products in my online store using the links at the end of the page, and there are also product photos further down the post.
I started with a Pear Pizazz side folding C6 card. My next layer is a piece of Pear Pizazz embossed with one of the Greenery Mini Embossing Folders. I really love this embossed pattern. My next layer is a piece of the gorgeous Abstract Beauty specialty DSP. I love the bright happy colours in this paper. It also has some gold foiling.
Next up I have a piece of Basic White cardstock 9.6cm x 7.5cm. I stamped the largest foliage image (from the Garden Greenhouse stamp set) in Pear Pizazz ink. The teeny flowers were added using Polished Pink ink. These were super easy to line up as the stamp set is photopolymer. Make sure you line the bottom of the foliage up with the bottom of the Basic White cardstock piece.
Next up I cut my greenhouse pieces from the Greenhouse Dies. I cut the solid piece from a Window Sheet, and the outline piece with Silver foil. I attached the Silver Foil to an adhesive sheet before I diecut, so it could easily be attached t0 the Window Sheet. I attached the Window sheet to the card with a couple of small pieces of Stampin' Seal. next time I will use mini glue dots, or try sponging a thin layer of Multipurpose Liquid Glue as I have heard that works too.
To finish off my card. I punched the foliage shapes from the Bough punch in Pear Pizazz (the larger piece) and Polished Pink (the smaller piece). There are great foliage pieces included in the Greenhouse dies too, but I wanted to try out my Bough Punch. Finally I stamped the sentiment in Memento black ink and added a couple of Matte Black Dots.
Here's a closer look at the 3 key products I have used (check out the links at the end of the post to see them in my store).
First up here is the Garden Greenhouse bundle.
Next we have the Abstract Beauty DSP. This paper is double sided, 6x4" size and has gold foil accents on one side. There are 12 different designs and you get 4 of each sheet. I love the bright happy designs.
Finally we have the Bough punch. This is SO versatile!
Now it's time to check out what the rest of the Art with Heart team have created using Pear Pizazz. Next up we have the lovely Caroline Manwaring.
If you get lost anywhere along the way, you can find the full list of participants over on Cathy's blog.
We would love more happy crafters to join our awesome Art with Heart team (and you could participate in these weekly blog hops with us if you wanted, so ask any of the girls along the blog hop to0 tell you more about the fabulous things that happen in the team, and how you can get 2 extra free stamp sets when you join during Saleabration (on now!).
Have a great week and I look forward to seeing you back here again soon,
