Grassy Grove

 Hello friends! I know I keep talking about the amount of rain we've had but it has been a very strange year. We finally get a nice day and we all get excited thinking that Spring has finally arrived and then we get two days of solid rain. Now parts of the city are flooding again! I hope everyone is safe out there.

Today's card is another one of my creations for our Crafting at the Lake Event. I used the Grassy Grove Bundle for this card.

I started by stamping the two trees image on a piece of Basic White cardstock using Shaded Spruce ink. I stamped it a second time without re-inking. I then stamped the grasses image along the bottom of the cardstock using Old Olive ink. I had to stamp it a couple times to cover the entire piece of cardstock. 

I punched out a circle from a Post-It Note using a retired one inch circle punch. I don't like to use retired products but it was the perfect size for what I needed. I added the circle to the top right corner of the cardstock. Using the Blending Brushes, I added ink to the cardstock. I started with Night of Navy at the top of the picture and then Calypso Coral towards the bottom. I also added some Tuxedo Black Memento ink very lightly where the two colours met. I removed the Post-It Note circle and added some more Calypso Coral ink where it was.

I matted this piece onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock. I added a piece of Shaded Spruce cardstock to a Basic White Thick card base. I added my matted, stamped piece to the card front using adhesive.

I stamped my sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a small piece of Basic White cardstock. The sentiment is from the Hello Ladybug stamp set. I cut a banner into the right edge of my sentiment piece and added it to my card using dimensionals.

To complete the card, I added a small deer to stand in the grasses. I used the Groves Dies which are part of the bundle and cut it out of Soft Suede cardstock. I attached it using regular adhesive. I think it completes the card perfectly.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card.

Stay well and keep creating!
