A Garden Party on a Card

I have to admit, the Garden Party Designer Series Paper overwhelmed me at first. How was I going to use it? Then, my friend Barbara had a fabulous card on her blog, "Creative Stampin' Spot," during the Stampin' Addicts Summer Mini Blog hop and I CASED (Copy and Share Everthing) it for my Stampin' Celebrations Club. Here is my version:

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Garden Party Designer Series Paper, Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Pacific Point, Whisper White
Ink:  Versamark
Accessories: Melon Mambo Embossing Powder, Organza Ribbon, 3 1/2" Circle Die, Scallop Circles #2 Die, Modern Label Punch, Silver Brads, Itty Bitty Punch, Big Shot, Polka Dots Embossing Powder, 1/2" Circle Punch, Postage Stamp Punch

What I love about this card is the small details-- I used the postage punch to make the end of the banner. I added the little flower and brad on the tag. I used the Melon Mambo Embossing Powder instead of classic ink.

Thank-you Barbara for the inspiration!

Happy Stamping!

  6. Thanks for showing me how to use a 'no shrinking violets here!' floral. I didn't order this DSP because I was unsure how I could use it.
