Super EXCITING News & Garden Delight LO/ Card

 

Hello everyone and Happy Friday to you all!!
Today I have some SUPER EXCITING News to share with you all, I am now part of the Club Scrap Artist Team, and so excited to be designing for this AWESOME company! They have the most beautiful design paper , and the thickness is just awesome! I LOVE all the sweet embellishments and goodies you receive in their kits, I absolutely LOVE their kits, and cant tell you how excited I am to now be designing with them!!! whooooohoooo!!! :) You can see both of my projects here on the Club Scrap Blog.
 
Everything you see on my pages here was designed using their September Club Kit called "Garden Shed Deluxe Kit" . I did use some dies to cut out all flowers using again their beautiful design paper. I submitted this 2 page layout and a card for the final round :)
All details are listed below on my 2 page layout. 
 
 
 Garden Delight 2 page LayoutPage 1 & 2
green 12 x 12 card stock
Yellow 11 3/4" x 11 3/4"
Design paper 11 1/2" x 11 1/2" I then added sewing.
Page 1 & 2 - Photo matte measures 6 1/4" x 4 1/4" for the green, the yellow is 6" x 4" , and then the design paper is 3 3/4" x 5 3/4"
 
I cut the printed cut a part sheet to get my banners for the left hand corner on page 1, and then the right corner on page 2. I then took scissors to distress the edges, I also used an antique linen ink to distress over the edges.  All the flowers were cut out with dies using the 8 1/2" x 11" design paper sheets. I also fussy cut the bee's and butterfly. I then did my favorite technique the Glass flower technique that I use on most of my flowers. This was done using clear embossing powder and NO inks or paints. That way you can see the beautiful prints on each of the flowers. I do have video's on the glass flower technique on my blog. The branches were cut using a paper punch and your  pale green card stock. I did add different size pearls to the centers of all my flowers. 

The sweet plant stakes I loved working with. I used the stencil and airbrushed the LOVE & BLOOM on them with copic markers and my airbrushing system. For the
"LOVE Stake" I stamped the Garden Freshness stamp on white card stock and then colored it in, and punched it out using a circle punch. The edged of the circle were airbrushed.  I thought the little bee would look cute with some clear glitter stickles on his wings. I then cut out the printed green card stock and popped the sentiment on top of that. Lastly I attached the sentiment tag to the plant stake. The bee at the top of page 1  was fussy cut and then I added some glitz to his wings. The bee that is on the flower on page 2 was also fussy cut and I used the glass technique on it and the butterfly. The charms in this set are too sweet so I added the watering can charm to page 1, and then the garden shovel to page 2. I LOVE the buttons and added 1 to that page as well. Lastly I had to add some of the beautiful ribbon to my page, and did so behind the clusters of flowers.
