Garden Whimsey Birthday Cards

Today I had a crafting day, doesn't happen much we're supposed to be decorating - I managed to make 8 cards,

The first card was made to take part in Linda’s blog candy, she’s recently reached 10,000 hits on her blog and is offering some lovely candy, all you have to do is create a card using her sketch, I also used the colours for this week’s challenge on ILWS, so thats two birds with one card.

All supplies used are from Stampin Up.
Stamps: Garden Whimsy
Card Stock: Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, Gable Green, Apricot Appeal
Inks: Apricot Appeal, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Purfect Plum, Green Galore
Punch: Scallop

The next I made using the supplies sent in my last stampers 10 order from Monica. Supplies included were Chocolate Chip CS, a small amount of Pumpkin Pie Prints DSP and 3 felt flowers. Monica’s challenge was to create a card using all these supplies plus at least one other colour – I used the front cover of the current catty as inspiration. I’m really pleased with the results – What do you think?

All supplies used are from Stampin Up.
Stamps: Garden Whimsy
Card Stock: Chocolate Chip
Designer Paper: Pumpkin Pie prints, rose red prints, old olive prints, orange & brown prints from Sweet Always DSP
Inks: White StazOn
Punch: Scallop
Rub-on – Cherished Memories.
For the butterfly I stamped onto the cardstock with white staz-on, and then stamped it again onto acetate, cut out the wing from the acetate and stuck it onto the card to make the butterfly look 3D.

I’ll post pictures of the other 6 cards tomorrow, by the time I’d finished there wasn’t the light to photograph them.
