Ornate Thanks Card

Welcome to week 3 of my Stampin’ Up! Pear Pizzazz Colour Challenge. If you missed weeks 1 and 2 you can find them here (week 1 and week 2).

This week I would like to share with you a card I created using the Early Release Ornate Thanks stamp set. To find out more about the Ornate Garden Suite Early Release click here.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. I have then taken a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper and applied water using an Aqua Painter. Using Clear Blocks as palettes, I applied Pear Pizzazz, Coastal Cabana and Flirty Flamingo ink to the wet paper and blended slightly.

Once the paper was dry, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut out using one of the Ornate Layers dies. The sentiment piece was adhered to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a length of Bermuda Bay Mini Striped Ribbon (sorry – I thought it was Coastal Cabana at the time!), folded it in half an attached to the sentiment piece using a Mini Library Clip. To add interest and help to keep the ribbon in place, I tied a length of Silver Metallic Thread around it.

The final touch is provided with a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels.

The Ornate Garden Suite is so versatile and will be available from 1st April so keep checking back for more information. If you can’t wait until then, you could always join my team and add the Suite (or your favourite parts) to your Starter Kit! Email me for more details or click here to join.

Next time…

Next week Pear Pizzazz will be combined with Garden Green and Poppy Parade – join me then for more inspiration.
