Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is “Wonderful Cards/Projects from the Garden” where our design team showcase projects from things found in a garden, such as flowers, vegetables, fruits, or even a garden scene. We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. Once you finish here, you will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

When thinking of the garden theme for the Pal’s Hop this month, I was drawn to one of my favorite bundles, Quiet Meadow. And, it was fun experimenting with  Watercolor Paper and a Water Painter to make a wildflower bouquet.

Wildflower Bouquet


I began by using three of the Meadow Dies to cut from Watercolor Paper. Since Watercolor Paper is nice and thick, this made the delicate stems sturdy.

Using a Water Painter I colored the stems by adding ink from the ink pad, and letting the water soften the color as I painted. Three greens were used: Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, and Garden Green. I used the same method for the flowers, in three colors: Flirty Flamingo, Crushed Curry, and Pale Papaya. 

It’s easy to change colors with one brush, because you just squeeze the water through the brush until it’s clear.


Once I had my pretty flowers, I decided on a background of Basic White Cardstock, cut with the largest Ornate Layers Die, and embossed with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. I layered this on an earthy, Crumb Cake card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. 


Next, I tied the flowers together with Linen Thread, and placed Mini Dimensionals on the back of the flowers. Then, using a Glue Dot to hold the stems in place I attached the flowers.

The sentiment, “LOVE” is in the Quiet Meadow Stamp Set, which fits perfectly on the tag, cut with a Meadow Die. I stamped it in Crumb Cake Ink, and attached it with a Dimensional, so it looks like it’s tied.


Here are three more samples of the wonderful Quiet Meadow Bundle, created by the Stampin’ Up! design team.
