Make it Market Kit: Garden Gate





Hello! I am super excited to share my projects with you featuring the newest Make it Market kit by Betsy Veldman! 

Before I get to my projects here are the details:

The Make It Market Kit will be released on August 1st and it is entitled "Garden Gate". There are so many beautiful basics that will speak to any flower or garden lover!  The colors in the kit are lush and pretty, just like a summer garden in full bloom. Garden Gate is filled with lots of options for creating stunning cards with some fun interactive possibilities. Old-fashioned flower favorites such as wisteria, hollyhocks, and bleeding hearts are included, and will surely make you feel nostalgic as you use them. Pair these up with the coordinating dies to layer them over a garden gate, lattice, or even a wrought iron garden sign. The papers are cleverly designed to allow for gatefold cards, or you can cut them up to use for other design purposes. 

This kit is sure to be legendary and you won't want to miss out on the chance to add it to your collection!

Here we go with what I created with this amazing new kit! I seriously could NOT stop! 



My first card here is featuring the beautiful lattice gate die and the stamped holly hocks. I used Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet, and Pale Peony for the flowers, and spring moss for the leaves. I blended some ink onto my background before adhering the die cut. I used Spring Moss at the bottom and Aqua mist at the top. It really made the white gate stand out! The garden sign and sentiment are stamped in Stormy Sea.

On this card, I used one of the preprinted backgrounds. I cut one in half and glued this down to a top folded A2 size card base. I glued the lattice die cut horizontally across the bottom of my panel, then cut the doors off of the garden gate die, stamped the top part in Stormy Sea, and glued this over the lattice. 

The flowers I stamped in Razzberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, Scarlet Jewel, and the leaves in Spring Moss. I  adhered these with foam tape.


I stamped the sentiment right onto the printed background piece in Smokey Shadow.

This card, I used some of the stencils for my background. On an Aqua Mist piece of card stock I stenciled the lattice using Fresh Snow down in the right corner, then used the leafy stencil and stenciled the leaves in the top right corner using New Leaf and Green Parakeet.  I cut this piece out using the stitched die from the Noted: Scalloped A2 dies. I mounted this onto a white card base with Fun Foam. 



This time I used the beautiful Wisteria flowers along the top. They are stamped with Hibiscus Burst and Green Parakeet. I used some of the single hollyhocks also, stamped in the same colors.  The garden sign was stamped in Aqua Mist and the sentiment in Smokey Shadow.

For this card, I again used one of the preprinted sheets, cut it in half and mounted it onto a top folded A2 card base. I just love the beautiful ombre effect with the lattice! The flowers are all from the preprinted sheets too. I cut those out with the matching dies and adhered them with foam tape. The garden sign, I stamped in Aqua Mist and the sentient in Stormy Sea. The wrought iron hanger is also from the preprinted sheets.

Okay, I had made four cards, and yet, I still could not tear myself away from this beautiful kit! I had to make a couple of little tags with the Tag Sale: Quilted Die. 



Is that not the prettiest little tag? I cut one of the preprinted panels out with the stitched square die from Noted: Scalloped Square and adhered this with foam tape to the tag. I stamped the sentiment in Raspberry Fizz and adhered  the flowers and leaves  with foam tape.




Everything on the tags is from the preprinted sheets, so it made these super fast and easy to put together!

And this one, made the same way, just using a different panel and some yellow hollyhocks. The sentiment is stamped in Royal Velvet.
