Dear Friend

Ok, my mojo was not on my side today, or should I say yesterday.  By the time I finished it was too late to post.  I was actually waiting for my order to arrive so that I could play with my new stamp sets.  Alas, I could not think of what to stamp.  I was just to darn tired.  I had in-laws dropping in for supper and then I spent some time playing Wii with my daughter and husband.  We were playing Mario Party and I kept falling asleep through the mini games.  I managed to rouse myself in the last stage of the game to come out on top until the very end of the game where we all lost to the game consol.   We always have fun playing that game together.  That and the sport games.  We all get competitive and heckle each other until the end where we laugh it off. 
Anyways, I digress.  now for the card which I am not so happy with.  Since I have nothing else to post though it will have to do. The grass was ispired by this card here:  Paper in the Works

  1. Freehand draw some clouds and then cut them out.  Take your sponge and some pale blue ink (I used Caribbean which is retired) and sponge your way down the white mat.
  2. Take three or so shades of green and with your craft knife cut some grass ( this is slow and time consuming).  Next sponge the grass with a bit of Garden Green ink.
  3. Adhere your grass from dark (top) to light (bottom) and push out your grass so it looks more natural.
  4. On Stampin’ Up watercolor paper, stamp your flower pot twice and the flower portion another 2 times.
  5. Color the different elements.  Remember that whatever is going to be popped up will not have to be colored in the layers beneath.
  6. Cut out the different pieces (Entire flower and pot once, front portion of pot once, flower head twice and flower center once).  Adhere the whole pot together with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Next adhere the pot in between the layers of the grass using more dimensionals.
  8. Cut out and stamp your greeting, add pierceing and sponging with Caramel ink and then adhere to card.  Add your button.
  9. Take your card base and then adhere different patterns of DP.  I used Celery, Old Olive and River Rock (retired) .  Adhere your image over this and then you are done.
