Inspired By Stamping November Sneak Peeks - Garden Seed Packets

This is one of two posts today.  For the Moxie Fab Thanks! Blog Hop, click HERE.

Hello there!  It's our last day of sneak peeks for the November release at Inspired By Stamping.  Today, we bring to you Garden Seed Packets.  (links for new items will work beginning on November 10th)

I created an ornament/decoration for a special friend.  She is so dear to me, and our friendship has indeed bloomed over the few years I've known her.


Using a couple of flower images from the stamp set, I created my own patterned paper.  Look how bright that red was before I toned it down!


A wooden heart from the craft store is the base of the project.  I simply traced its shape onto the patterned paper, trimmed and glued onto the heart.


To subdue that red, I used the dry-brushing technique with white paint, then coated it with high-gloss sealer when it was dry.


I glued pleated ribbon behind the heart....looked a bit too plain without it.  There are dots of liquid pearls along the border, too.  The banner and sentiment are from Garden Seed Packets, too.  A Red Flower and some punched greenery (and pearls; always, the pearls) topped it off.  Ta da!


The rest of our team has goodness to share with you:
