Morning Meadow in a planter

If you've been following my blog this week, you'll have noticed that all the cards have been made using Stampin' Up's beautiful new Morning Meadow hostess set. Here's another clean and simple card I made using the set:


This flower image makes a great background image when stamped in one colour but when it's inked up with markers it really does step up and take centre stage. It can look bright and clean cut when stamped in bright colours on Whisper White card stock but I've softened it here by stamping onto Naturals Ivory which has a lovely, suede-like finish.


The planter was made with core'dinations card stock. I decorated the top of it with the Scallop Border punch and sanded it gently to give a bit of texture before adding some linen thread for a rustic look. The card was finished with a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes and some gems.

The Morning Meadow stamp set is available at just £13 wood mount or £10 cling mount exclusively to customers who order £150 or more or the host of a qualifying workshop - but you can also get hold of it as a member of my Stampers 6 club! Have a look here if you'd like to know more.

Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Morning Meadow, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Early Espresso classic ink, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive markers
Card stock: Very Vanilla, Naturals Ivory, Early Espresso core'dinations
Other:  Scallop border punch, linen thread, Basic rhinestones, stamp-a-majig

Yesterday I took my youngest son to see Despicable Me 2 which we both adored. So often these series of films are just cynical money-makers but we both found this one very funny and laughed aloud throughout the whole thing. My favourite joke was when the teenage Antonio tells the adoring Margo: "My dream is to one day play video games for a living." Margo gazes at him. "Wow!" she breathes. "You are so deep!" My son's favourite jokes were the earthier kind!

It's Three Minute Thursday tomorrow and I'll be back with a quick one layer card. Hope to see you then.

  7. Beautiful card Vicky. Love how you've made the planter. That's a lovely set. I haven't had any chance to use my new goodies as I'm away at my daughter's babysitting.
