New Release, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme - DIY Note Card and Herb Garden Gift Set

Hello and welcome! 
Jutta here and I am delighted to have you join me today for the debut of an
awesome new Quietfire Design Stamp Set - Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme.
This eight piece stamp set is sure to make any gardener smile and 
a great way to welcome spring into our crafting!

Now onto my project, well actually several little projects which 
when combined make this lovely Herb Garden Gift Set.

         This stamp set is the sweetest!                      Tip-I've added some dots with
                                                                     India ink to help me with line up of stamps.                                

Note Card Set of 4 Cards and 5 Envelopes and Pretty Folder

Closed view of folder 
 inside view of folder with cards and envelopes. 

Decorated 6" Terracotta Pot
I stamped pot with forest moss distress ink and added a couple of gold stripes 
with a marker before sealing all with clear spray paint.

Plant ID Tags and Copper Stakes
For stakes I used reclaimed copper wire shaped with round nosed pliers.
The tags are wooden business cards from my stash which I punched, stamped
with jet black archival ink, colored around edges with peeled paint distress marker
 and added paper cord ties. 

Instructions for cards and folder
For cards I cut 2 sheets 8-1/2" x 11" yellow cardstock length wise and 
folded in half to make 4 top fold bases. 

I then used the 2nd and 3rd largest SB labels 4 dies and my Big Shot to cut white cardstock and patterned paper labels.

I crimped the white cardstock label and adhered it to base. 

Keep patterned paper label in die, use as stencil to draw line on label with
peeled paint distress marker. Stamped the four herbs on label with jet black archival ink.
Adhered stamped label to crimped label to complete cards. Tied with ribbon and set aside.

For folder I cut a sheet of 12" x 12" yellow Kraft core cardstock down to 12" x 9". Folded and cut as per photo below.

 Next I embossed the front cover using my Big Shot and the Rosa 5" x 7" embossing folder.
I cut 4 pieces 3/4" x 5" and 1 piece 3"x 5" from coordinating patterned papers.
Stamping as shown in photo below with vintage photo and shabby shutters distress ink. Then inked all paper edges with peeled paint distress marker. Adhered all patterned paper pieces to folder and and then folded over bottom flaps and adhered to inside to complete.

What a wonderful project! Beautiful! I was just looking at our little herb garden this morning as things are beginning to grow! Always exciting! TFS!

Joni said...

wonderful! This set will be perfect for my farmers market sales! May I ask what kind of sealer you used for the pot, please? The one I used last year ended up with yellow bubbles, ruining some absolutely lovely painted pots I had… :( Thanks Jutta!

Jutta said...

Thank you every one I enjoy your sweet comments!
Joni, sorry about your ruined pots so frustrating after all that work. For my pot I used some industrial clear spray paint that I had on hand, it went on nice and I'm hoping it will hold up too!
Good luck with your farmers market!
