Plant a Garden


Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Kelly Santi, our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenges.

June is Great Outdoors Month. Create a card/project showcasing something fun outdoors - camping, hiking, biking, picnics, etc.

I just received an order from Hello Bluebird,  so my great outdoors this week is all about gardening!

As you can see I created a Slimline card using Hello Bluebird's Summer Woods Scene die, I already had the winter version of this die so it is good to have the summer version now.

I used the new Bloom and Grow stamp set to decorate my card which is also from Hello Bluebird.

I used Distress Oxide inks to add color to each of the difficult pieces from the slimline die..

For the inside of the card I created a pop-up card using the pop-up die set from Karen Burniston's Mini Pops Pop-up die set. 

Along the bottom edge of the card I used the grass border die from Karen Burniston's Long Nature Edges die set. The clouds along the top of the card are from Honey Bee Stamps Horizon Slimline Borders die set.

For the pop-up panel, I used a sentiment stamp from Stampendous Stamps called Friends Add Color. I stamped this onto white cardstock and then used MFT Stamps Stitched Dome Frames Die-namics to create my pop-up panel.

I added some more of the stamps from the Bloom and Grow Stamp set. 

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

Sometimes a garden supplies the great outdoors right out of your window. We sure have enjoyed the few things we have growing and all the little creatures that come around for the treats we leave them.
