Garden Whimsy #3

Card number three using "Garden Whimsy" set by Stampin' Up!

I stamped the butterfly three times across a white panel, added the sentiment (from Stampabilities) in black, and adorned the antennae with black acrylic dots. Oh yeah - I also added a black acrylic dot for the dot on the i, and I mounted the entire panel on Pop Dots.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Garden Whimsy #2

Card number two using the Stampin' Up! set called "Garden Whimsy." The stamps I used for this card are the butterfly and the sentiment. I had the die-cut circle and scalloped circle, along with the red half circle, in the card parts that I took out last week. I went old-school and added the black dots on the scallops:) The image panel is mounted on Pop Dots.

Garden Whimsy #1

My posts for the next several days will be using the Stampin' Up! set called "Garden Whimsy." It consists of eight stamps.

For this card, I used the snail. I almost skipped this stamp, but thought I could at least do this much with it:) I stamped the snail with SU!'s Buckaroo Blue ink and matted with matching cardstock. I mounted on Pop Dots. The sentiment was done with an Image Tree alphabet stamp. This would make a fine "hello, how are you doing" card, I think.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Blue Iris Thinking of You

I have several (I think four more) of this type of flower stamped and in my "card parts" box. I probably won't share all of them with you, as I'm not very creative with them. I'm sure I've already shared a few of them here:) At any rate, this was the second stamping. I had colored the stamp with distress markers and then spritzed with water. For this card, I trimmed off the right side, leaving part of the flower stem "out of the box." The sentiment is from Stampabilities and is mounted on Pop Dots.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Santa

In my "Card Parts" box was this small square of patterned paper. In small cursive letters are the words from "Twas the Night Before Christmas." I thought it might work nicely to stamp an image over it. So, I looked through my Christmas stamps and found this one from My Favorite Things. The sentiment is also from MFT. I stamped the image with distress ink and sponged ink along the edges, too. I matted with with a matching red cardstock and mounted on Pop Dots. The card base is kraft.
