Welcome to another edition of our RemARKable Stamp of the Month tour – this month we’re featuring Secret Garden and the coordinating Secret Garden Framelits. RemARKables are a very creative group and I am certain you’re finding loads of great ideas. Let’s see if I can’t share one or two more.
I snooped through Pinterest for ideas and saw a lot of cards that included round or oval shapes with the Secret Garden flowers. I thought about making a round card, but ultimately came up with an oval card that I am very pleased with. Tell me what you think!
This is the largest oval framelit, cut from So Saffron and embossed with the Lattice TIEF. It’s layered over a card cut from Whisper White – Stampin’ Up! Whisper White is just a little lighter weight, and you can cut two layers with a framelit. The various flowers from the Secret Garden stamp set are inked in either Perfect Plum or So Saffron and stamped on either Whisper White or Perfect Plum card stock. A little ribbon, a few pearls, and a banner finish it off! The message on the banner is from the new Cuddles and Kisses stamp set – great fonts and great messages!
I cut a LOT of flowers to play with, and when I was finished with the card there were still a LOT of flowers left over! After a few false starts, I came up with a fun gift to go with this card:
This frame has moved around my studio a half dozen times begging to be embellished. It took a major expedition to find the dog-gone thing once I realized I needed it. Isn’t that how it goes? Of course, I’m not showing you what my studio looks like, because you would see the problem immediately.
Time to take a peek over the fence at Robin’s Secret Garden! She always has gorgeous projects to share – I know you’ll love it!
