Hello Vertical Garden! (GDP 080)

Today’s card is a fun color combination using Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo, and my favorite Mint Macaron 🙂  The design is from this week’s challenge over at Global Design Project.

I’m still using lots of Mint Macaron…you know, before it’s gone 🙁

The sample card had a tag and a banner across the lower portion of the card.  For my card I used the gold Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate as the tag.  I love the way it looks, so sparkly!!

The “hello” banner is embossed in white on the Mint Macaron panel.  It’s large and bold!

Ooh My ~ Mint Macaron!

You’re probably going to see me using a lot of Mint Macaron over the next few months.  It’s been one of my favorite colors for two years, and it will be discontinued at the end of May.  🙁

I’ve been trying different watercolor techniques lately.  That’s a fancy way of saying I’ve been playing around with watercolors!  Ha!  I love watercolors but I’m too impatient to wait for them to dry!!  I used my heat gun, but I think my paper still wasn’t dry when I took this photo.

The only colors on this card are Mint Macaron, Whisper White and off white.  When you make a monochromatic card, it’s best to use lots of texture.  Here I’ve added ribbon, baker’s twine, a doily, and some designer acetate, along with a pretty piece of Whisper White card stock die cut with the So Detailed Thinlits.

This is the first time I’ve used the 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon and it’s SO pretty!  It’s laid across a 1″ panel of Bermuda Bay card stock.  This is another free item!  On the left of the card is what I’m calling an embellishment nest!  I guess I could have put a little bird in there!  All these sweet embellishments make cards so pretty!

Awesome Shaker Jar!

Hello Shaker envie

Shaker card!  Yeah!  This is similar to a card I made a few weeks ago.  My card classes requested that we make a shaker card in class, so I came up with this one which is just a bit different from my last one.

Hello Shaker angled cu

The little fish from the Jar of Love stamp set is too cute I just had to feature him in the jar!  The flowers and leaves are from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set.  In class we fussy cut the flowers and glued them on the front so that they would overlap the jar.  This was actually the hardest part of the card!

Hello Shaker Standing straight

Stampin’ Up!’s Foam Adhesive Strips were the key to making the shaker part of the card.   We also used Stampin’ Up! Window Sheets for the see-through window.

Hello Shaker cu fishYou know, when I put the sequins in the card and sealed it up and finished the card, I just got a huge smile on my face!  Shaker cards just make me happy!  And that’s what happened in my classes ~ when everyone finished their cards and shook them and saw the sequins fluffing all around the little fish ~ they got so excited!  All the fussy cutting was worth it!!

Hello Shaker angled
