Garden Circles - Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Garden Dies

   I've been busy creating projects for my next class but I did have time yesterday to do up an idea that I had after seeing the Freshly Made Sketches layout.  Circles are always a fun element to incorporate on a card (I probably use them on 80% of my cards!) and it came out just as I had envisioned which doesn't always happen!

  I've been keeping my eyes peeled for color combinations that use Wild Wheat as I think it might be a hard In Color for me to use with any regularity.  This one caught my attention: Wild Wheat, Crushed Curry, Moody Mauve and Pebbled Path.  It has a bit of a retro feel to it right?

  My idea was to use one of the new Gorgeous Garden dies to cut a full card front panel in Basic White and then again in each of my colors to then cut circles out of those to add to the white panel.  I used the Stylish Shapes dies and cut 3 different circles from the 3 colors then carefully used glue to add them onto the same part of the Basic White panel.

   Next I added dimensionals to the back of the die cut, trimming them down to fit the spaces where necessary, then added it to the Pebbled Path base.

  The sentiment is from the new set, Timeless Arrangements.  This set has a really great assortment of mix and match sentiments which I always love because it's so versatile and you just never know what you'll need!  I used Pebbled Path ink and then added a tiny bit of Moody Mauve Textured ribbon along the bottom edge.

  All the supplies to make this card can be purchased in my ONLINE STORE.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?

  1. This stenciling on the die cut is super cool! Love the effect. So glad you joined us this week at FMS!

  2. Adding some colorful spots to the diecut foreground makes such a clever take on the sketch. Thanks so much for joining us at FMS this week.
