make it market: garden gate kit


It's time to share Betsy's new Make it Market: Garden Gate kit that will be available to purchase tomorrow: August 1st, 10PM ET, at Papertrey Ink. There is a wonderful garden in the town where I live and it is place where our family really likes to spend time. The new Make it Market: Garden Gate kit reminds me of this beautiful place! I love how this kit gives you a green thumb to "grow" your own gardens onto your projects. Every detail in this kit is gorgeous!

Here are all the details:


The next 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 are my projects created with the Make it Market: Garden Gate kit:


I love all the options to create that this kit offers from the stamps to the printed papers to the stencils to the die cuts. There are so many great things to play with!


This card features the gate die cut in kraft cardstock and I dressed it up with lots of flowers that are from the printed papers. It's so easy to just die cut out the beautiful blooms and assemble them right onto your projects.


The sentiment sign on the door is also a part of the printed papers that you can easily die cut out. They come in a bunch of colors, but I really love the black and white chalkboard look ones!


For this next card, I mainly used the stamps that are included in the kit. I stamped up a row of the hollyhocks on kraft cardstock and then added some more hollyhocks that I had stamped and die cut out and popped up a bit in front of the stamped row of flowers for a bit of dimension.


The lattice border across the top is created with one of the stencils in the kit. I used Fresh Snow ink on the kraft cardstock and then finished off the card with a bit of Rustic Jute button twine.


I put together some gift tags using some more kraft cardstock that I had stenciled the lattice design onto along with some leaves from another stencil that is part of the kit. 


The flowers and leaves on the tags are stamped and then die cut out. I stamped and die cut these assembly line style and that made putting the actual tags together very quick and easy.


On this final card project, I stenciled a leave background with Classic Kraft ink onto kraft cardstock using a stencil that is included in the kit. That made a lovely tone on tone background.


I die cut the lattice piece from white cardstock and then added elements from the printed papers that I die cut out - the flourish/sign holder, bleeding heart flowers, and then the sentiment sign.


Remember that there is only a limited amount of kits available so be sure to log on to order on August 1st, 10PM ET so you don't miss out! You don't want to miss this!
