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!

  3. Very colorful and happy!

  4. Very nice! This paper overwhelms me too! Just not sure how to use it but you did well!

  5. Very nice Sara! I too had some problems first using it then it started to actually look good after a few tries.

  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.

  7. Great card, Sara! Love all the details you incorporated. For this card, it's definitely in the details!


Thanks for commenting! I love feedback!
