Container Garden - CTD660

Hello, hello! It’s Wednesday and time for this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge!
For my card I used a new favorite stamp set, the Container Garden by The Greetery. When I received the Container Garden set and Container Garden dies I used the dies and die cut a bunch of the shapes out so that all I had to do was stamp and them and put a card together.

For my background I used a piece of enchanted evening card stock along with a strip of enchanted evening polk a dot paper. For the inside of the jar, the backdrop, I blended on some tumbled glass and faded jeans distress oxide ink and stamped my sentiment. For the stems I simply chartreuse and ripe avocado ink and for the daisy flowers I used daffodil delight and chocolate chip ink. The little flowers were stamped in more mustard, bashful blue and brocade blue ink. As a finishing touch I added some brown and blue Stickles to the flowers to give them a bit of sparkle and some yellow glitter to the bees.

Oh Gnome! - CTD659

Hello there! It’s time for this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge where we have some great colors to create with.
When I first saw the colors for this week’s challenge I thought of creating something Halloween but then I’ve been wanting to pull out the adorable Oh Gnome stamp set and dies with the cute mushroom house so that’s what I went for.

I stamped and die cut my images and colored them using copic markers then die cut the Mushroom House in cream and red card stock, the door and window from kraft card stock. I used the Outside in Stitched Square dies and die cut a piece of orange gingham Doodlebug paper for my background then die cut a piece of white card stock using the Stitched Scalloped Circle Frames and blended on some tumbled glass distress oxide ink along the top inside of the circle. For my sentiment, I used the Wavy Sayings stamp set along with the Simple Wavy Banners dies.

Den Sweet Den - CTD658

Hello, hello! I’m hostess for this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge and I’ve chosen some cool colors but a cosy inspiration photo. I hope you’ll take the time to play along, I can’t wait to see what everyone creates!
For my card, I used the adorable Lawn Fawn stamp set, Den Sweet Den along with the coordinating Den Sweet Den dies. I started out by stamping my images, die cutting them out and coloring them using copic markers. Next I used the Outside In Stitched Square dies to die cut a piece of Doodlebug gingham paper and also a piece of scrap woodgrain paper for the floor. For my background, I used the Outside In Stitched Rectangle dies to die cut a piece of brocade blue card stock as well as a strip of gray card stock. I added my images, popping up the bears, books and mug with book using foam tape and stamped my sentiment onto a die cut banner.

Container Garden Card Set

Hi there, crafty friends! I’m popping in today to share a few more cards that I created using The Greetery’s new Container Garden stamp set.
The Container Garden set is such a fun stamp set to create with, I love the two step flowers, the sweet bees and how they work so perfectly with the Jumbo Jar die.
I used most of the same supplies to create both the cards I’m sharing today which include the Container Garden stamp set and dies, the Jumbo Jar die along with paper some classic gingham paper and the Outside in Stitched Rectangle die.

For my first card which was done with pink flowers and gingham paper, I blended on some carved pumpkin and wild honey distress oxide ink for the background of my jar and popped up all of the images with foam tape. I added an extra flower on both of the cards and also added clear glitter on the bees wings and glitter on the centers of the main flowers.
For my second card, I went with orange flowers and gingham paper and blended the background of the jar with salty ocean and faded jeans distress oxide ink. I also used metallic silver paper to die cut the jar lids on both cards.
