Good Tuesday everyone! The 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and ordering will soon be available to absolutely everyone… yay! I DO hope you will like the new In Colors. Personally, I really, really like them. And today’s card shows off a couple of them: Starry Night and Parakeet Party, oh and Orchid Oasis. The Designer Series Paper I used is more new issue: In Color 6×6 in Starry Night, Sun Prints 12 x 12 and of course the vellum is Lovely Layers Vellum (part of the Botanical Layers Bundle). There are a couple of other new products on the card as well: 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dots – Orchid Oasis and Metallic Woven Ribbon in Parakeet Party. WooHoo! If you have a catalog already, take a peek at pg. 93 for my inspiration. Love the color combination!

Botanical Layers.1

I began with a card base of Starry Night card stock and adhered a panel of the 6 x 6 DSP Assortment in Starry Night. I then cut a piece of Sun Prints 12 x 12 (there are some gorgeous patterns in the pack!) and adhered it cockeyed, intentionally :O) I stamped the leaf design from the Botanical Layers stamp set in Orchid Oasis ink, kind of a purpley blue and heat set it with the heat tool to help it dry.It WILL dry on it’s own, but it will take a bit and I didn’t want to wait. I die cut the leaves from the Meadow Dies (coordinates with Quiet Meadow stamp set) and Basic White card stock then used a Blending Brush and Pale Papaya ink to gently add color. I also die cut the butterfly from the same Meadows Dies and Pale Papaya card stock then used the same Blending Brush to add more color to the butterfly. I added the white branch of leaves to the card with glue dots. I stamped the additional leaves on a Basic White piece in Parakeet Party ink and fussy cut it. This was an easy process by the way… I added this over the white leaves with dimensionals. I cut a length of Parakeet Party Metallic Ribbon and slipped it under the green leaves, adhering with a glue dot. I stamped the sentiment from the Botanical Layers stamp set in Orchid Oasis ink and trimmed the Basic White strip as you see it. A single dimensional under the right section of the sentiment and a dab of liquid glue on the left adhered it to the card. Two final touches: add the butterfly with mini dimensionals, then add the 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dots in Orchid Oasis. And the card front is complete.

Botanical Layers.1

For the inside I stamped the leaves in Orchid Oasis ink using the Botanical Layers stamp set, then added a strip of the 6×6 DSP Assortment in Starry Night to the bottom of the Basic White panel. This was added to the inside of the card and voila – the inside was also complete.

Botanical Layers.2

For the envelope, I stamped the leaves in Parakeet Party ink on the front of the envelope using the Botanical Layers stamp set. To the flap I added 6×6 DSP Assortment in Parakeet Party and trimmed it to fit. Done, done!
