Stampendous Lovely Garden Card

Recently I purchased the Stampendous Lovely Garden stamps and matching dies.  Here is the card I made with these stamps and dies.

This card is 5 x 6.5 inches and was made with the following:
  • Stampendous Lovely Garden Cling stamps
  • Stampendous Lovely Garden Dies
  • Copic Markers, G21, G24, G46, Y15, Y17, R81, R83, R85, YR01, YR14, YR18
  • Atyou Spica, Clear and Red
  • Memento Ink Tuxedo Black
  • Pop Dots
To make the card, I stamped the flowers, leaves and butterfly with Memento Tuxedo Black on white card stock.  I then used Copic Markers to color the elements.  I highlighted areas of the Flowers and butterfly with the Atyou Spica Glitter pens.

The images were then cut using the matching dies.  I used various heights of pop dots to add dimension to the finished card.

Tulip Card

The tulip stamp for this card is a Greenhouse Society stamp, which I really like.  It can be used to make some great spring/summer themed cards.

This card is 4 x 5.5, and was made with the following:
  • Greenhouse Society Tulip stamp (Technique Tuesday)
  • Recollections Background Stamp
  • Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder
  • Spellbinders Oval die
  • Copic Markers, G21, G24, G46, BV00, BV11, BV13
  • Memento Ink Black and London Fog

To make the card, I first stamped the background image using the Recollections stamp and London Fog ink.  I then stamped the tulips on top of the background using the Black ink.

The tulips were then colored with Copic markers.

To assemble the card, I first cut the oval from the center of the purple card stock, then embossed using the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I placed the stamped image centered in the oval and attached it to the card base.

Mothers Day Cards

Here are some of the Mothers Day cards I've made.

These cards were made with the following:
  • Darice Embossing Folder - Basket Weave
  • Hero Arts Stamp - Blooming Meadow
  • Versamark
  • Stampendous Detailed White and Black Embossing Powder
  • Memento Inks
To make the cards, I stamped the image with Versamark, and then added the embossing power.  After heat embossing, I sponged over the image with green, pink and blue Memento ink.  The image was cut down to 3.75 x 3 and matted to 4 x 3.25.  I used a Darice embossing folder on the base of the card.  The sentiment was stamped and then cut out with an oval Spellbinders die.
