'Garden Maids' Thank You for TTTC#003

 
 
 
Hello Everyone!
 
Happy Monday to you ALL!
 
Today my 'Garden Maids' are to come and do some
weeding and mulching in my 2 small Gardens!
 
It has been canceled twice due to bad weather.
We have had so much rain...we have had the remnants of
Hurricane Cindy over the weekend.
 
One of the 'Garden Maids' that came for the consultation
was wearing the cutest flats! (I need to find out where
she got them...they are so me!)
 
The pattern in the DSP for Today's Card is what
her shoes looked like! So Cute!
 
 
 
 
 
Today's Card is for the
TIC-TAC-TOE Challenge!
 
TTTC#003
 
 
 
 
Here is the Challenge!
 
 
 
I chose the Top Row
Blue-Butterfly-Bow
Not knowing it...
I also did the left hand column
Blue-One Layer-Yellow
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is my Card!
 
 
 

 
Isn't that DSP gorgeous?
It's called Delightful Daisy!
Now picture cute flats with that pattern!!!
I so want a pair!!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is the inside of my Card!
 
 

 
I stamped the Butterflies in Night of Navy and dotted them
in with Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Marker!
Same as the front Butterfly!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is my Card with it's stamped to match envelope!
 
 

 
I think the 'Garden Maids' will like their Thank You Card!
 
 
 
Right now Stampin'Up! is back-ordered for the Double Stitched Ribbon
in Daffodil Delight, so I used some retired, Single Stitched Ribbon
I had in my stash...I am going to be doing a big Ribbon
order probably on my next order. I didn't realize how
little ribbon I had till I went looking for some...Oh well,
another excuse for an order!

At the last Garden Club meeting I attended...
I won a raffle for the 'Garden Maids' to come for a consult and
then come back to do the work (I buy the stuff).
So I had my consult 2 weeks ago...a Master Gardener comes
with several 'Garden Maids' to look over my yard,
for an hour's consult...
And it's all free!
(Oh, the raffle cost me $2)
(Approx. $250 worth of work and time for $2)!
The 'Garden Maids' are also members of the Garden Club!
The second hour they are going to
 weed 2 small Garden areas and lay down newspaper
and mulch in my garden!
After the 'consult' I have been saving all my newspapers
and went out  to Lowe's and bought 'Cedar Mulch'!
It has been canceled twice!
Yes, the rain has been a big hindrance!
The first time was lightening...no way!
Last time, Thurs. was also raining...so it has been rescheduled to
Monday, tomorrow! Hopefully the weather holds out and
we can finally get this done!
Meanwhile, I am making 'Thank You Cards' to mail out
to the 'Garden Maids' that come and do the work! I will get
all their names when they come...I am excited!
 
 
 
Until the next Post...Blessings and Happy Gardening to you ALL!

Here is my Card!
 
 
 
I went with all Pastels too!

I used
So Saffron, Pink Pirouette, and Wisteria Wonder
And in that order...
 Take a 'Baby Wipe'...
touch the 'Baby Wipe' to one ink pad and pounce on a sheet
of Whisper White Cardstock.
Take another 'Baby Wipe' and use the second color, the then repeat
for the third color!
If you wish to use another color, go for it, with
 a new 'Baby Wipe' and a new color.
I chose the rule of three!
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is the inside of my Card!
 
 

 
I stamped the branch in Wisteria Wonder,
 then the flowers in Pink Pirouette, and then
using a So Saffron Stampin' Write Marker,
I 'dotted' all the flower centers!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is my Card with it's matching envelope!
 
 

 
I just took a small flower from the stamp set and carried
the same three colors to the envelope!

Thinking Of You for CC&S228 and TSOT326

 
 
Hello Everyone!

 
Thank You for peeking in for Today's Card!


 
Today's Card is for a Combination of
2 Challenges...
One is a Sketch Challenge
and One is a Color Challenge!
 


 
Here are those 2 Challenges!
 

 

The Color Challenge!
 
 
 
 
 
I REALLY liked this Combo!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Sketch Challenge!
 
 
 
 
Doesn't this sketch look like it has 2 of the colors!
When I saw this sketch on my table I saw the Copper AND Peach!
The Blue was a stretch...I had wanted to use a Brown shade!
I think I will make another card with the brown!
We shall see!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is my Card!
 
 

 
The Copper made this Card look so 'Rich'!
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is it's 'Up Close and Personal' shot!
 

 
I wanted to show you the 2 different colored butterfly wings
under the 'Copper Butterfly'!
I die cut the peach and blue butterflies and then cut them in half!
I went for the peach on blue and blue on peach contrast!
Guess where the other halves are? Yup!
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is the inside of my Card!
 

 
Did you guess where the other half of those wings went?
I also heat-embossed the sentiment in Copper too!
Carrying the colors to the inside!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is my Card with it's stamped to match envelope!
 

 
I didn't catch the 3 dots till way after the card was
'roughly pieced together' (before the glue down!)
So I used my 1/4" hole punch to make my own!
 
 
 
Here are the items used to make my Card:
Unless noted, all items are from Stampin'Up!
 
Cardstock:
Peek-A-Boo Peach-base, half butterfly's front and inside
Dapper Denim-front panel, half butterfly's front and inside
Copper Foil Paper-banner, butterfly, edging on card front
 
Stamp Sets:
Peaceful Petals-retired, greeting
Bloom With Hope-retired, inside sentiment
Papillion Potpourri-retired, butterfly on envelope
 
Tools:
Big Shot-die cutting and embossing machine
Butterflies Thinlits-Butterflies
Layered Leaves Dynamic TIEF-banner leaves embossing
Triple Banner Punch-flagged copper banner
1/4" Circle Punch-retired, 3 dots on right upper corner
 
Accessories:
VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad
Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder-all heat embossing
Heat Tool-to heat emboss greeting, inside sentiment, and
butterfly on envelope
 
 
Here is my Card again!
 
 
I am pleased with my card! I believe the recipient will be too!
 
 
 
 
Until the next Post...Blessings and Thoughts of you ALL!
