#CTC238 CASE Garden Lane DSP

Yes, I've been a little absent of late, although not by choice - a fracture near my ankle curbed things a bit. However, albeit in hobble mode, I've got a little sanity restored from being able to craft again!  Join us as we case the Garden Lane DSP. If you need some inspiration - use the layouts on page 36-38 and 40-41.

The colours listed for this DSP are: Garden Green, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sea Foam and Whisper White.  

I've chosen a base of thick Whisper White and a mat of Garden Green. Using Mint Macaroon ink to stamp the flower image from Floral Essence six times and then punched out using the Perennial Flower punch. Two punched shapes complete each flower. I've used the Leaf Punch with Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz for the leaves, but for a little more texture I've split the cardstock leaf in half bur burnishing it a bit until it starts to part and then gently pulling away from each half so that the furry inside of the cardstock is showing.  My top layer is Soft Sea Foam and I've used the same colour ink with the Crackle Paint image for a subtle background. The greeting is from Butterfly Wishes and stamped in Mint Macaron. The leaves were adhered to the back of the flowers and then laid out to work the placement for the leaves from Floral Essence to be stamped in Mossy Meadow. Each group was mounted using Stampin' Dimensionals.

A bit of an angle to see the layering:

Thanks for stopping by. Please pop over and see what Monique has created for us and then play along. Make your card, take a photo and post to our page by next Sunday evening.


  1. Oh I looooove the crackle background! And the suede leaves! And your card is awesome! Just stunning! I'm so glad you're back to your creative self again!!

  2. Hope your mobility picks up quickly, sorry to hear you injured yourself. Glad you are back crafting, and what a great card you've created. Loving the suede look leaves.

  3. Sorry to hear about your ankle. Lovely to see you back in the craft room so we could see this beautiful creation. I love the crackle background and how you added texture to the leaves by splitting the cardstock. It looks really effective.

  4. Sandra, your card is showing off all our gorgeous greens to a T. I love the "furry" leaves mixed in with the stamped leaves, looks great. Hope your fracture heals quickly and you get your mobility back soon.

  5. You've managed to use lots of greens on this beautiful creation, Sandra! I love the crackle background and the furry leaves in particular - they add a very natural texture that goes perfectly with the rest of the card's elements. Glad to see you've been able to hobble to the craft table - not a fun thing to happen but sounds like a great excuse for some extra quiet crafting time to aid your recovery ;)

  6. Hope your ankle is doing better! I love the crackle background and all those gorgeous flowers!
