Front Porch Garden Card by Lynn Dionne

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we are going to be using another wonderful Front Porch Series stamp set! This is the Ai Front Porch Garden Set (5486) and has so many beautiful images including a few potted plants, floral wreath, topiary, floral vine and even a cute little pair of rain boots! Please note that you will need the Ai Front Porch Set (5512) to create the basic front porch and door. I'll talk a bit more about that in the video and give you a closer look at that set!

Let's get started by stamping and coloring all of these sweet little images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens as follows: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Peach Pink, Pale Orange, Orange, Scarlet Red, Yellow, Lt Violet, Lt Green, Deep Green, Mid Green, Moss Green, Mid Gray, Lt Gray, Beige, Lt Brown, Sand, Mid Brown, Smoky Teal.

Since this set includes the coordinating dies we can go ahead and die cut all of these little pieces!

To set the scene for our front porch we will use a 3D Deck Planks Embossing Folder and then we will add a bit of gray in between the wood slats for a bit more interest and dimension. We will also cut a strip of paper for the bottom of the card and use a blending brush to add some Tim Holtz Twisted Citron Oxide Ink and Rustic Wilderness and give this panel a little spatter for some added interest!

I'm creating a card to celebrate a new I have selected the "Home Sweet Home" sentiment from the Ai Front Porch Set. However, keep in mind that this card could be used for many different occasions! This was stamped onto a pretty die cut label using the die from the Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543). Once we die cut the label we can do a bit of blending using that same Tim Holtz Twisted Citron Oxide Ink and then we can add some stitched lines using a permanent black pen!

Let's assemble the card with glue and foam squares for added dimension!
