Live, Love, Grow: Build your own Terrarium

Good morning! One of the new sets that I was immediately drawn to was {Live, Love, Grow}. It's a two-step stamp set where you can build your own terrarium. Since I'm an avid gardener, both inside and outside it was perfect for me. This is what I came up with. 

I used a Tip Top Taupe base card, with accent layers of Emerald Envy, Basic Black, Whisper White and Cucumber Crush. I'm so loving the new Emerald Envy colour!! The Emerald layer is embossed with the {Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder}. I decided to use some vellum and stamp the terrarium glass dome and fussy cut it out. To get the plants inside, I stamped with a lighter colour onto the Whisper White layer so I knew where to stamp my images so they were centered on the layer. 

Isn't this set great?! Lots of possibilities for not just terrariums, The font is lovely too. I'm in love with it! 

I first stamped the outline images, then the solid images - except I stamped off once to get a variance of colour tones from one shade. I love that you get double or triple tones from one ink pad. The pebbles image is stamped not only at the bottom of the terrarium, but I stamped it around the entire base layer with Tip Top Taupe ink. A bit of {Emerald Envy Solid Baker's Twine} and a {White Perfect Accent} dot for the handle on top of the terrarium. I hope you like my card, if you have any questions - please let me know! Have a great day!!!! 

Thanks for stopping by, happy stamping!
