Hello Crafty Friends and welcome back! I hope you’re doing well and having a fabulous day! Thanks for joining me today! I’m super excited to announce that I’ve joined the LDRS Design Team, and today is my first project for them! Today’s project is featuring the Garden Grandeur Slimline Stamp, Stencil and Die set from LDRS. So let’s just jump right into the details, shall we?
I began this project by stamping the Garden Grandeur floral on a piece of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock, using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat setting it using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. The coordinating stencil was then adhered to the stamped image using masking tape. I used LDRS inks in Pink Tutu, Lipstick Jungle, Scarlet Rose, Lantern Yellow, Dan-D-Lion, Key Lime Pie and Olive Branch for the stenciling. When the stenciling was completed, I used the coordinating die to cut the flowers.
I cut an A2 panel of Neenah 110lb and used the Pink Tutu ink to do some very light ink blending in the corners. I also used the LDRS Pretty Patterns Slimline Die to cut a frame from Neenah 110lb as well. I positioned the frame diagonally across my panel, trimming off the excess. This is a great way to stretch your supplies! You can use those Slim Line dies in unique ways by positioning them differently on other size cards!
The excess pieces were then added around the corners of the panel, using liquid glue, for added interest. No sense in wasting those right?!? For the sentiment, I chose to use the LDRS Chloe Alpha Lowercase and cut the letters hi three times from Neenah 110lb, adhering with glue.
I played around with the placement of the flowers and sentiment, and when I finally was satisfied, I glued the sentiment directly to the panel and adhered the large floral using foam tape in the upper corner. I trimmed the excess, and placed the remaining portion of the floral in the bottom corner. I still had excess, so I added that to the side. Again, no sense in wasting it! To finish up, I added some pearls for added interest, and adhered everything to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb.
That finishes up this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty in your own space! I took no waste to a whole new level on this card! I should have taken a pic of the tiny little pieces that I had left over! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
