And here is my very very LONG card for this hop.
We just got those new stamps and a dies made for TRC by Spellbinders, so as the fence is long, I decided to use it all and to make this low and long card.
I used TRC fantastic Pugnacious Signiture Paper cream cardstock over the Kraft base. Then I stamped grass, flowers and everything on my background with masking some images parts with stamps for Window Garden new May release set, then all stamping was heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
I made another set of flowers and a vase, heat embossed with colored embossing Wow Powders and painted with some FC Gelatos (I used Earthtones over the embossed areas).
Now the background that was made with 5-6 gelatos, Blue/Green set, some Eeathtone and mixed with a baby wipe.
The same cardstock was stamped with TRC new Wood grain background stamp and colored with brown gelato and then I made a On the fence die cut and added the bars.
Pot with flowers and the fence were adhered with 3d Candies foam glue.
I made a sentiment flag with on of the newest TRC Friends set and glued it over the top part of my card. 3 more pearls were added using the Scrap Happy Glue.
And my card was bare. So a branch of Prima flowers was glued over the fence and now it was all done.
I really love the final result: new TRC stamps, new die and all new FC goodies!
Hope you like this project too.
