EVENING EVERYONE! HAPPY DAY 3! And I’m back again with another project from the Quiet Christmas Collection by Power Poppy. Today’s card features an image from the Garden of Gratitude: Trellis Digital Stamp Set by Power Poppy.
I love this set and it’s one of my favorites in the entire release. We spent a lot of time this summer improving our backyard and garden. I wanted to add an espalier to the backyard but it just didn’t work out in the plans. So I was thrilled to see a sweet trellis come to life in this card.
Today’s release includes:
- Garden of Gratitude: Trellis Digital Stamp Set
- Garden of Gratitude: Boot Bouquet Digital Stamp Set
- Garden of Gratitude Clear Polymer Stamp Set
I used the digital version of the set for my card, lining up the orange branch along the side to create the border. The background of the main image a little hard to see in the photo. I created it by inking in the color and then randomly pressing a piece of terry cloth dampened with colorless blender. This creates a background with a little texture and interest. Just remember to do it FIRST and make sure that the background is completely dry before coloring the rest of the card. I’m notorious for coloring the background after the fact, so this technique requires a little advance planning!
