UpdateTuesday - March 31, 2020 - Ornate Garden Suite

Hello!

It's Time for Update Tuesday once again.  Are you ready?  I am!  Tomorrow, April 1st the Ornate Garden Suite will be available for you to purchase.  It is a pre-release from the upcoming annual catalog.  We get it early, how fun is that?! 


There are so many elements to the suite, I can't wait for you to see them all tomorrow online at valeriesmith.stampinup.net  There are two stamp sets, two sets of dies, two ribbons, and one new embellishment.  

Here is the project inspiration photo that Stampin' UP!® shared with us today.

Today I am going to make both of these projects.  Although I will be turning the cute little gift box on the right into a card.  

Here is the first card:


What a great little way to thank someone!  I did make the Terracotta Tile eyelet piece in the center square, in the original photo it isn't quite square.  It caught my eye and I wanted each corner of it to touch the stamped filigree corners.

The second card:


I love how this turned out.  It is a fabulous card.  The use of watercolor pencils and the blender pens add the muted color that it needed.  



I appreciate you being a part of my Stampin' Journey!

I live & love to inspire you!

THANK YOU!
