It was only after I’d made today’s project that I realised this was the second day I’d used mainly green. I never thought of myself as a ‘green’ person but obviously the excitement of spring finally arriving has got to me. Today it was the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack that caught my eye.
I began with a card base of Thick Whisper White Card and used Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) to attach a layer of DSP.
Then I chose another pattern and used liquid glue to mount that onto some Whisper White Card and onto the card front.
Next I used Garden Green ink to stamp “Just for you” from the Meant To Be Stamp Set onto some Whisper White Card.
Above the sentient I wrapped two pieces of Silver 3/8″ Metallic-Edged Ribbon and secured them on the back with Tear & Tape Adhesive. Then around the ribbon I tied a small bow using Whisper White Baker’s Twine.
With that done I fixed the sentiment layer to another piece of Whisper White Card with liquid glue. Finally, using Stampin’ Dimensionals I added the sentiment to my card front.
To complete the project I decided to use more of the paper from the the main background layer.
First I attached some to the flap of a Whisper White Medium Envelope with liquid glue. Then using Paper Snips I cut the DSP to shape following the edge of the flap.
Next I cut a 3/4″ strip of the paper and attached it to the right-hand edge of a layer of Whisper White Card with liquid glue. Once I’d fixed this layer inside the card base I was done.
I didn’t originally include Garden Lane Designer Series Paper on my wish list, but I’m so glad I decided to get it. It’s so versatile, and I have a feeling it’s one I’ll need to buy more of.
Garden Lane is also one of the three suites that coordinate with the July Paper Pumpkin kit – On My Mind. The other coordinating suites are Come Sail Away and Woven Threads. The kit will contain an exclusive photopolymer stamp set and at least one mini ink spot. In addition there’ll be everything you need to make 9 mailable cards (3 each of 3 designs). The only thing you might need is a pair of scissors to cut any ribbon or twine in the kit.
I’m sure this kit will be very popular and may well sell out before the end of the subscription period. So if you think you might want it, make sure you subscribe today. The kits will be shipped around July 12th. If you decide you don’t like the kit when it arrives, and you’ve selected me as your Demonstrator, just let me know and I’ll arrange for your money to be refunded.
When you subscribe to Paper Pumpkin there’s no minimum subscription period, and you are free to skip months or cancel at any time. Stampin’ Up! also guarantees you’ll be happy with every Paper Pumpkin kit you receive so you’ve absolutely nothing to lose. It would make my day if you decided that this month you’d take Paper Pumpkin for a test drive.
Well that’s all from me for now. I’m off to make some new projects and I’ll do my best to avoid the greens.
However if I haven’t already put you off, here’s some of my earlier posts with green projects using the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper:
