Hello Everyone! Did you have a great weekend? Sunday was lots of rain… getting from the car to the house got me thoroughly wet šŸ™‚ It was only 1/2″ but it came down hard at times, then just drizzle the rest of the time. We need it, so there it is. Rain provides me the perfect opportunity to play in my craft room ~ and I played with a new product call Eden Garden. Golly, the papers are gorgeous! But I played with the dies and only a couple of the stamps. This product will be available for customer purchase Nov 2. Here’s the stamp set, dies & a snippit of the Ever Eden’s Specialty DSP. Eden’s Garden is a premier of an item in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog. This SDSP is gorgeous and will be available to customers only Nov 2 – Jan 3. Plan to get yours ASAP! Or… you could JOIN MY TEAM here and order it now. šŸ˜˜

Here’s my creation…

Eden’s Garden Sending Hugs.1

Can you tell there is Wink of Stella on the top layer of leaves? In person it is noticeable. And how do you like the rectangular wreath? Pretty isn’t it? I die cut two layers with the Eden Dies, one in Evening Evergreen and the other in Soft Succulent, then layered them together with dabs of liquid glue here & there. I then die cut with Gold Foil five individual sprigs and adhered them to the back of the wreath with glue dots. I put dimensionals on the back of the wreath and set it aside to do the rest of the card. Here’s a picture of the wreath with all the cut in half dimensionals.

I began by stamping on a panel of Basic White, the sentiment from Eden’s Garden stamp set using VersaMark ink, sprinkling it with Gold embossing Powder and heat set it. It’s a very delicate font. I then ran this through the Timeworn Words 3D embossing folder. I adhered this to a Soft Succulent piece with liquid glue then directly to the card base of Evening Evergreen. I attached the wreath with the dimensionals I mentioned earlier then added three Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels. The final step was to cover the top layer of the wreath with Wink of Stella – and the card front was complete! Here the Wink of Stella really shows. TIP: If you want/ need extra ‘Wink” on your card. squeeze an amount on an acrylic block and use the ‘wink’ brush to add to the necessary piece. It goes on a bit heavier and is therefore more sparkly. šŸ™‚

For the inside, I decided a single ‘spray’ using one of the stamps from Eden’s Garden stamp set would be just the thing. I stamped it in VersaMark ink on a Basic White panel, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder & heat set it.

I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent piece, then directly to the inside of the card base.

For the envelope, I stamped the same ‘spray’ in VersaMark ink on the lower left front, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder & heat set it. I added a piece of the gorgeous Eden’s Garden Specialty DSP to the flap, trimmed it to fit & voila!
