Garden In Bloom

Garden in Bloom is a new stamp set from the latest Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. It included a large number of stamps so it's only available in Photopolymer (Clear).

The blooms have a hand-drawn appearance, so I used Black Memento ink for all the outlines to make a pretty background.

Then, I used Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky, So Saffron and Mint Macaron (new) inks for the second step solid stamps.

The sentiment, from the Best Thoughts Hostess Set, is stamped on Vellum with Staz On ink.

Use Whisper White, Basic Black, Soft Sky and Vellum card stock and White Organza ribbon.
The cute sentiment from this set inspired the layout of my design. The bee, the butterfly and the flower being friends.

Again, I used Black Memento ink for the outlines to emphasize the hand-drawn theme.

Then, I used Melon Mambo (stamped off) for the flower, Cucumber Crush for the leaves, Tempting Turquoise for the butterfly and Daffodil Delight for the bee's body and the flower centre. I used a Soft Sky for the bee's wings. Just scribble it in.

The flight trails are pierced using the Updated Essentials Piercing template.

Use Whisper White, Basic Black and Tempting Turquoise card stock and Black/White Baker's twine.
To begin I stamped the sentiment with Chocolate Chip ink on the mat first, then used Daffodil Delight ink to stamp the solid/watercolour flower image. Use Soft Suede ink for the outline image and then turn the stamp and use Delightful Dijon ink to stamp the outline image again. Stamp the flower centre with Delightful Dijon, too.

Stamp the outline image with Daffodil Delight ink on the card base to create a background.

I used Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, and Daffodil Delight card stock and linen thread.
