Chelsea Gardens ROCKS

One of my all time favourite Close To My Heart paper packs, Chelsea Gardens, will retire soon. I have used it for so many projects and can barely get enough of it. I'm sure an all time favourite Sweet Leaf is in large part due to this love.
This is Chelsea Gardens patterned paper and the coordinating cardmaking stamp set that is another favourite. I stamped and cut flowers and leaf stem then used my CTMH inks as watercolours to fill them in. I used Glacier ink to create the patterned background. 

A little technique here, I used the back side of the small flower and stamped with Glacier ink. Then, I used the flower image and stamped over top of the shape, for a coloured image. I cut the oval and scalloped shapes from our Art Philosophy Cricut cart. I stamped the sentiment with one of our sweet M sized stamp sets, Happy Birthday.

  1. What a beautiful card! You are so clever to use the back of the stamp that way - I've seen that tip before but never remember it when I'm in the studio. I LOVE this and agree that I will miss Chelsea Gardens papers!
