Garden Plants – Hello

Welcome to my blog today!  I have a few weekend plans and am working to complete a few more challenges.

Theme: Stampin’ Up! Only Challenge (#282) Plant Life, Color: Color Throw Down Challenge (#657) and Sketch: Global Design Project Challenge (#306).

Here is the result:



  • I stamped the large Rectangle shape from the Watercolor Shapes stamp set with Coastal Cabana ink on to a scrap of Basic White cardstock.  The Rectangle was then die-cut with the (2⅛” x 3⅝”) Rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies set.
  • The sentiment, Hello from the retired Grace’s Garden stamp set was stamped in the lower left of this panel with Smoky Slate ink.  I chose this stamp because I liked the font.
  • The Smoky Slate cardstock Scalloped Frame was created by placing the (2⅛” x 3⅝”) Stitched Rectangle Die inside the (3¼” x 4½”) Scallop die from the Scalloped Contours Dies set.
  • My Flowering Plant was die-cut from both Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade cardstock scraps with one of the dies from the Meadows Dies set.  The Poppy Parade Flowers were trimmed and adhered over the Flower areas on the Granny Apple Green Stem.  I punched a few mini-dots with the (⅛”) retired Hand-Held Punch from a piece of Basic White cardstock scrap and adhered them to the centers of the Flowers.
  • All of the elements were adhered to a Basic White card base (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) with the Flower coming up from behind the popped-up Frame to match the sketch.

Hello is such a versatile greeting.  It can be used for almost any occasion. Don’t you agree?

  1. So pretty, Jolanda – you really do a great job at coloring the dies! I am blown away by your stitched layers and frame – perfectly coordinated! Thanks so much for playing at SUO!


  2. Wow Jolanda stunning love the watercolour shapes background very clever. Love the way you created the smoky slate frame and as you said ‘hello’ is a very versatile sentiment can be used for many occasion. The flower being die cut from 2 colours finishes the card off perfectly love it. Thanks for taking part in the SUOchallenge hope that you can take part in the next one x


  3. That Watercolor Shapes stamp set is surprisingly useful, isn’t it?? Love your soft color combination and how one flower overlaps the frame. Such a pretty card, Jolanda! Thanks for playing along with us at SUO Challenges, hope to see you again in the gallery for our challenge that just started!
