Dream Gardens Set SamplerBy
This set of cards is for my stamp club meeting this Friday. The hostess chose Dream Gardens as the set to be featured this month.
The image is stamped with Stazon black ink onto glossy cardstock with sponged ink over top.
Stamps – Dream Gardens, Eastern Blooms
Paper and Ink – Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Whisper White
Accessories – 1 3/8″circle punch, scallop circle punch, dimensionals
Most often, I take anywhere from 15 minutes to 1 hour to design and finish a card. This one however, took an unbelieveable 3 DAYS to complete!
Off and on, you understand…I did pick it up and then put it aside, several times during those days…
You get to see the final product here, but know that there were at least 8 different layout concepts I went through before this!
I’m happy to say, I’m pleased with the end result…thank goodness…cardmaking shouldn’t be painful and making this card was borderline…
Stamps – Dream Gardens, On Your Birthday

I quite like the different textures in this one – there is a lot to look at! Stamping directly onto DSP has become my favorite “go to” technique so far this year.
