Welcome to Bronwyn’s Birthday Blog hop!
We’re a group of stamping friends who are celebrating Bron’s 60th Birthday in 2022 with six blog hops, over six months, with six fun themes! This is our inspiration pic for tonight’s hop. Isn’t it a beauty!
The mix of soft neutrals with a touch of pink and the amazing texture on the basket in this inspiration photo inspired me to use the realistically textured “In Good Taste” DSP to create a home decor scene on my card.
Yes, it’s quite a “busy” card front, but as far as I’m concerned with house plants, more is definitely more! Do you agree?
My basket is die cut from In Good Taste DSP, using the bowl die from the Cookin’ dies with the leather handles made from the hinges in the Window flower box dies.
To create the gorgeous two-toned leaves for my Lady Valentine houseplant I stamped the large leaf stamps from the Plentiful Plants bundles in Soft Suede (stamped off) then coloured them in with Old Olive and Flirty Flamingo light Stampin’ Blends before die cutting.
The In Good Taste DSP is retiring soon and 50% off – I’ve just ordered another pack of this incredibly versatile DSP. A strip of the textured pink DSP creates a pink sisal carpet, and the darker wood tone DSP is die cut using long die from the Garden dies to add extra texture to the wood planks in my plant stand.
The background wood plank DSP is from the Heart & Home DSP (I thought this best matched the wood planks in the inspo photo) with the items on the plant stand stamped and die cut using the following products:
- Stack of books – Make It Happen stamp set
- Jug and floral pots – Welcoming Window stamp set & Window flower box dies
- White pot and plant – Perfect Plants dies
The “Happy Birthday” sign is die cut using the stitched rectangle dies and hung on a Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dot.
Although this is a busy home decor scene, all the plants and the natural textures make me feel calm and happy. I hope my card puts a smile on your face too!
Next up on Bronwyn’s Birthday Blog hop is Sharon Dalton – I can’t wait to see what Sharon has created.
I’ll be back on Wednesday night with the AWH Colour Creations team, where we will be showcasing Smoky Slate.
In the meantime, wherever you are in the world, stay safe, stay calm…and keep on crafting xxx
