Hey everybody! I hope you’re having a great week and it’s not too hot yet where you are! It’s definitely getting warm here but we don’t have much humidity so it never feels as warm as it does in other places with higher humidity levels. I was asked by Becca, the owner of FarmQuest Challenge Blog, to be a guest designer for Theme #7 – Barrel AND Watering Can, Pitcher or Bucket. Of course, I said yes, so I created a pretty friendship card featuring the Bearly Art Flower Barrel SVG and the pitcher from the Simply Crafty SVGs Pitcher of Flowers cut file. I also used sentiments from Trinity Stamps Friends are Flowers and Supporting Script Sentiments stamp sets.
I started by creating the main card element using my Scan N Cut, the Bearly Art Flower Barrel SVG and CutCardStock Basis Black, Basis Brown, Basis Magenta, Pop Tone Jellybean Green, Pop Tone Spearmint, Pop Tone Cotton Candy, Pop Tone Banana Split, Shadow Gray and Scottish Highlands Green cardstock. As I always say, the most fun of working with SVGs is putting the projects together, and I really enjoyed this one! I also cut a flat pitcher from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Lagoon using the Simply Crafty SVGs Pitcher of Flowers cut file and embellished it with some Eyelet Outlet pink gemstones and a die cut flower that was out on my desk.
I cut a standard A2 size top-folding landscape card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel and strips from two coordinating patterned papers from the The Paper Studio Four Seasons and Everything In Between paper pad (one of my all-time favorites). I also cut narrow strips from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Lagoon cardstock and adhered all the panels and strips to the card base. I added the flower barrel and the pitcher, along with a sentiment (and stamped and colored butterfly) from the Trinity Stamps Friends are Flowers stamp set, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut with the coordinating Trinity Stamps Friends are Flowers die set. The finishing touch was adding some Eyelet Outlet green pearl bling.
I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips cut from the patterned paper and Lagoon cardstock used on the front. I stamped the sentiment from the Trinity Stamps Supporting Script Sentiments stamp set in black ink and layered the panel on Lagoon cardstock.
And one more look… really loving how this card turned out and how well it fits the theme for the FarmQuest Challenge Blog guest gig!
