Green House Garden in Pink!!

Hi Everyone!

I’m so glad you’re here today!!! it’s going to be yet another great day to play along with our Stamping 411 Challenge!

Here is the sketch:


….and of course my interpretation:SAB Stamps and Sketch Challenges 010

I wanted to use the fabulous Green Hose Garden Set and also feature “Pink Passion” for another challenge I’m in. So here you go. Two challenges in one!!!!

The card base is Pink Passion and is cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2

Black Bottom Piece is 1 3/4 x 5 1/2

White strip is 1/2 x 5 1/2

I actually taped all the base together and then ran it through the  Big Shot with my Polka Dot Embossing Folder.

The next matted piece is the one with the Stripped Image made to look like checks. I stamped twice once in black and once in Pink Passion going the other way. I stamp that image and then trim. The black behind it measures 2 1/2 x 2 3/4 . Then I added a piece of pink Passion that measure 1 x 2 1/2

The image piece is 1 1/2 x 1 3/4 and is stamped in Pink Passion…stamped off for the lighter color and then full color for the impression lines. The mat again is black and measures 1 3/4 x 2 and the added piece of Pink Passion is 2/3 x 1 3/4. All corners on these pieces are rounded. Added a little bling to the flower and a tiny bow and there you have it. I call this my “Modern Green House Garden”

I hope you enjoyed your visit and will come back soon.

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!

WOW! I love everything about this card...especially the way you matted your images half and half, with the opposite colors to the backgrounds, and the plaid stamping trick rocks!!
