Recipe for sneak peek 6 Garden Dream

Garden Dream is a hostess level 3 stamp set so you could get this full set of 8 stamps by hosting a Stampin' Up! workshop (contact me for available dates or to place a qualifying order). This is the full set.

I used just 2 of the stamps to make this card.

Stamp sets: Garden Dream, Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery, Rose Red, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Ink: Stampin' Write Markers
Wide Grosgrain Ribbon: Regal Rose
Punches: Scallop Edge

I inked the flower stamp with Rose Red and Always Artichoke and then coloured the stamped image with blended Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery. I used Taken with Teal and Not Quite Navy direct to stamp for the humming bird and cut it out and popped it on a dimensional to give an impression of movement. I took the idea for the scalloped layers from the catty itself as I think it looks so effective. A fairly quick and simple card but quite elegant I think.

Thanks for stopping by.

Beautiful Sara, How is Bess... we found a six month old Staffie girlie, no collar, beautiful dog very happy go lucky but a bit too thin for our liking, dont think she were being fed much, but took her too the vets hoping that she was not chipped so we could keep her, but she were and they werent concerned about her weight so had to hand her over to the owner when he came... :(((( Misty her name is!! makes me want another!!
