ATS July Release Sneak Peeks - Day Two!!

Thursday, July 5, 2012

Hi Everyone!

It's day two of the All That Scraps July release sneak peeks!
Amy Y. is releasing a few new Sweet November Garden Girls this month and I have one of them to share with you today!

Meet Garden Girl Gertie! 

She's such a doll! I just love that sweet face! I also love that she's the perfect size to color or paper piece on!

I used a handful of dies on this card, and a new stamp (besides Gertie and the sentiment - can you spot it?), so here are some deets! First up, I colored Gertie with Antique Linen Distress Ink and a little Tea Dye for the shadows. Then I paper pieced her apron with some scrap paper from Basic Grey's Pyrus Collection. Next, I used the Fence Border die to cut out two sets of fences and sponged both with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. On one, I concentrated the ink on the pickets, and on the other I applied the ink to just the cross beams. Then, using the NEW Woodgrain stamp (squeal!!), I stamped it onto the pickets using Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Next, I cut out the stamped pickets and adhered them to the other fence so it would pop out a little more. I also used a brown marker to highlight the 'nails' in the fence. Next, I used the grass border die to add two strips of grass to the card. The hills were made by cutting out curves from pieces of patterned paper (BG's Pyrus Collection), then matting them with Bazzil Basics cardstock that I trimmed with my small scalloped Fiskars decorative scissors. The tree was made from the NEW Olive Branch die being released this week! I applied everything to a base of patterned paper from BG's Pyrus Collection, which was machine stitched to some Bitter Chocolate Bazzil Basics cardstock. The sentiment is from Amy R.'s Many Thanks sentiment set.

I'm off to check out what the other girls from the design team have whipped up using Gertie and her two garden friends....wanna tag along?? They're over at the ATS blog now!
