Garden of Happiness

garden of happiness

Oh how I LOVE this set! Im tellin you its awesome! If you read my blog then I dont have to repeat how much I LOVE butterfly images. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE. Did I say I loved them?

Well in case you didnt get it-I do! LOL!

This was the first and ONLY MUST HAVE SU! set for me. Don’t get me wrong I like some of the other sets, but THIS one was “it” for me. Plus it has a TULIP image-HELLO can we say heaven of all stamp sets.

OK Sorry. I seriously whipped up this card for you, cause I had to ink. There was no careful planning or execution, just inking and slappin onto paper.

I was still happy nonetheless.

My butterfly was stamped twice. Once on the card, and the second time on vellum cardstock. I used various coordinating colors of Versamagic ink. The BLING is by K& co. I was quite peeved that the sentiment left a rubber mark! It was the last thing done on the card. Pretend you dont notice OK! I almost photoshopped it out-but said hey ya know what-its not perfect. Its ok.

NOTE: I did fix the crooked flower square. See what happend when you use ONE dimensional instead of two! MAN!!!! Told ya I slapped it together! LOL! The piercing around the sqaure is my Onare template-whci I dont thin Ellen is selling any longer. She has some just not my favorite one.

I used mauve mist, guava, pomegranate, and white for this card. The flower is by BAZZILL

Thanks for lookin-Im sure Ill be adding more card with this set very soon (wink)

Pretty Paper Flowers

DONT MISS THE MYTIME MAIL here. Winner drawn on Monday.

When I got my Borders & Corners sets from Paper Trey, the thing that drew me in first was all the pretty little flowers from the sets! Go figure :D. I ordered the circle, rectangle, and square sets.

So when it came time to create (before my stamps were even placed in their CD case) I began my bouquet.

I used the pot from her Green Thumb set. I then took the little leaf image and stamped it in wasabi, and celery classic SU! ink. To make the flowers POP and color over the leaves I used versamagic ink.

I randomly stamped several litte flower buds.

I then punched a hole using my GIGA Scallop circle. I layered the acetate (that came with the set), behind the circle. See image in close up view.

I stamped the dotted image in the acetate, as well as several flowers. It gave the bouquet some dimension, and a cool look.

The rest is pretty obvious. I liked the little punched border. The flowers/scalloped edge complimented the design (at least “I” think it did).

This is getting sent off to a friend. Hope she likes it.
