Creating Kindness Blog Hop Rustic Bouquet

August 2, 2018 14 Comments

Hello, hello, hello!! Welcome to my blog.  I’m Sara Levin the artful inker.  And, I’ve got something fun to share with you!  It’s my Creating Kindness Blog Hop Rustic Bouquet card.  Our theme this month is rustic – aka anything not citified — kinda farmhouse chic, etc.  Let’s take a look at what I’ve created and then you’ll want to be sure to check out the rest of the design team and our guest designer Caroline van der Straaten.

Creating Kindness Blog Hop Rustic Bouquet

 

Rustic Bouquet Stampin' Up! Color Combo from theartfulinker.com

 

Picking today’s color combination,

I choose a soft, woodsy palette.

For my rustic themed card, I chose to create a lush summer bouquet.

Not the kind you find at the florist.

But, the kind you go out to the garden and cut.

To start, I blended on a background of Mint Macaron before stamping with Hardwood.

To create the bouquet, I used the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and coordinating

Bouquet Bunch Framelits.

The flowers were stamped, die cut and fussy cut.

And for the vase, I used one of the cups from Coffee Cafe.

To finish the vase, I wrapped it in Linen Thread.

And at it’s base are a few fallen blossoms.

 

 

For all of the details on making this card,

take a few minutes and watch this process video.

 

And, I’d love to hear from you to let me know if you’d like to see more of this type of video.

    I love the combo of colours you chose for today’s project Sara! And the distressing gives the perfect rustic look! OXO

      Thanks Carolynn! I was pleased/surprised with how well Mint Macaron worked for distressing.

  • Jay Soriano August 7, 2018 at 8:46 am

    Great flower arrangement and colour pallette Sara. The blended edges adds atmosphere and compliments the theme

    • Sara Levin August 8, 2018 at 7:21 am

      Thanks Jay! I enjoyed creating that pickled wood panel.

    What a stunning bouquet to give someone – and it’s everlasting too!

    Oh, it’s a beauty, Sara! Your color choice is really wonderful.

    • Sara Levin August 2, 2018 at 2:43 pm

      Thanks Jenny! There were so many more colors I wanted to use — but didn’t want to get carried away.

  • Charlet Brooks Mallett August 2, 2018 at 10:01 am

    Hello, hello! This is so farmhouse chic and I love the mint in the background. Such a pretty card.

    • Sara Levin August 2, 2018 at 11:10 am

      Hello to you Charlet! Yay, that was exactly what I was trying to achieve.

  • Marcy Denning August 2, 2018 at 8:11 am

    Love your beautiful bouquet of flowers!! xo

  • Cheryll Miller August 2, 2018 at 6:39 am

    What a gorgeous bouquet Sara. This is my sort of “country garden” floral display!! xxx

    • Sara Levin August 2, 2018 at 6:42 am

      Thanks Cheryll! I love the idea of a cutting garden where you can just go and fill your vase/bucket.
