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.

Card #1:

The image is stamped with Stazon black ink onto glossy cardstock with sponged ink over top.

Supplies used:

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


Card #2:

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…

Supplies Used:

Stamps – Dream Gardens, On Your Birthday

Paper and Ink – Stazon black, Baja Breeze, Basic Black, Whisper White, Greenhouse Gala DSP

Accessories – scallop trim edge punch, black satin ribbon

Card #3:

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.

Supplies used:

Stamps – Dream Garden

Paper and Ink – Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White,  Early Espresso

Accessories – large oval punch, scallop oval punch, white grograin ribbon, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and Big Shot
