Garden Whimsy appears to be one of the new favorites of many, including myself! These tulips are just too darn cute! This is my card for this week's color challenge over at SCS.
I love making these smaller square cards! This card measures 4.5 x 4.5 square. It's hard to see in this picture, but I stamped the Linen background stamp over the pretty in pink layer. I really like to use the background stamps that SU! offers. I think I own almost every one that they have had over the years (and that's alot!).
Thanks for stopping by today!
Supplies used: Stamps ~ Garden Whimsy, Linen background stamp, small sayings.
Paper ~ Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Old Olive, Petals & Paisleys DP.
Ink~ Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Old Olive.
Asseccories~ Rose grosgrain ribbon, Old Olive Brads,White gel pen, Giga scallop oval punch, mega oval punch.

It's been a while but I finally was able to do a sketch challenge! Here is my take on Beate's weekend sketch challenge #11 for this past weekend. I am really loving Stampin' Ups! new DP Le Jardin.
I hope that you can see that the butterfly looks 3D. To create this look I stamped the butterfly on a piece of vellum using a Bordering Blue craft pad, I then used clear embossing over the top and a heat tool. After it cooled I cut out the design (wings only) and used a mini glue dot to attach the wings over the top of another butterfly design that I had stamped and cut out using my Coluzzel cutting system.
Supplies Used: Stamps ~ Garden whimsy, Tres Chic bg stamp.
Paper ~ Whipser White, Bordering Blue, River Rock, Le Jardin DP, Vellum.
Ink ~ Bordering Blue Classic & Craft ink pads.
Accessories ~ Clear embossing powder, heat tool, Clouzzel Cutting System, punch from 'Three for You' punch box, River Rock stitched ribbon, vintage brads.

The wedding was beautiful!! It was an outdoor wedding in a garden at a Mansion outside of Denver. the bride was also beautiful. It was kind of sad to see her get married as she was the flower girl in our wedding 18 years ago!
It was a short trip but we managed to get in some site seeing as well. Above is a picture of my three kids at the 'Garden of the Gods'. there are some interesting rock formations in this part of the country. The kids had a fun time hiking around even though it doesn't look like it with everyone looking so serious!
On the way home we took a different route and visited Mount Rushmore. It's amazing how they can sculpt these Presidents in the side of the rocks!
