Sweet Stamps-"From the Garden"-release and Blog Hop



Hi!  Thanks for stopping by!
has a great new release, and we are celebrating by hostessing a Blog Hop! 
Here are some spectacular new images called, "From The Garden".


    There are some wonderful prizes this week and you will want to get in on the goodies.
                          Here is what I created to share with you:

  The Iris is just one of the 6 gorgeous flowers being released.  The sentiment can be found HERE. I have used three dies on my card- on the top left is Anja Edge, top right is Anja Corner , and along the bottom is Dancing Doily Lace Border. The Iris is colored with Copic Markers -sold in sets at Sweet Stamps- Spring Leaf, Sunshine and the Purples V12, V15 and V17. I used the V15 Copic marker to color the Seam binding, and painted Fairy Dust Creative Inspirations Paint over that, and added a touch to the yellow flower centers of the Iris.

Oh, I love flowers.....I had to create another card.......
 I stamped and embossed the image and colored with Copic markers- using the Copic Sets Spring Leaf, Sunshine and Warm Shadow. The butterfly is stamped and embossed with Black EP, and colored with Creative Inspirations Paints- Sunshine and Burnt Sienna. I added a tiny touch of Burnt Sienna CI paint to the centers of the flowers too. The DSP is from the Authentique.
