How does your garden grow?

I recently got the gorgeous Scene in a Garden stamp set from Stampin' Up! and wanted to do something special with it. Inspired by Andrea Walford's Punch Pals Class, I decided to make a little garden shed for a set of 4x4 greetings cards. Here's how it turned out:

All the cardstock and colouring uses SU! Earth Elements family, so it all co-ordinates nicely. The creeping vine on my shed is made using the stem from the Fresh Cuts set. Here's the cards I made:

I'm really pleased with how everything turned out. The background stamp is SU! En Francais. The sentiment stamps are a combination of Oval All and Best Yet.

TFL and I'll hopefully be back soon with more!

Don't forget the Mini!

Hello everyone! Just a quick post today to remind you that the new mini catalogue is now open for business! This catalogue runs concurrently with the main catalogue until 30 September, so you've plenty of time to get orders in.
Here's a couple of cards I made using stamp sets from the new mini.

Sorry, it's a bit dark but this one uses Playful Petals and Oval All stamp sets and the new Tea Party papers. Colours used are all Soft Subtles - Almost Amethyst, Certainly Celery, Barely Banana and Pretty in Pink.

This one uses the Fresh Cuts stamp set and Best Yet Hostess set. The image was inked and embossed in Basic Black and then I pounced over it with chalks in So Saffron, Regal Rose and Always Artichoke. The cardstock and DSP are both So Saffron.

I'll try and put a linky on the side bar to the new mini catty. It may take some time though!

TFL! Joanne xxx
