Stampin’ Up! Garden Greenhouse Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Welcome to our hop.  Today we have a color challenge using at least 3 of colors from our challenge.  We could use Black, Evening Evergreen, Mossy Meadow, Pale Papaya, Flirty Flamingo and Crushed Curry.  I ended up using all the colors because, well, why not when all the colors work so beautifully together.

The Details:

  • Stamping the green house in the light gray helps place the foliage inside
  • Stamp the large foliage image from the Garden Greenhouse stamp set in Evening Evergreen inside the greenhouse

The Sentiment:

  • Sprinkle with Black Embossing Powder and heat set with your Heat Gun
  • Cut your sentiment to size with your Paper Trimmer (mine was 1/2 x 2-3/4)
