Secret Garden Get Well Card

I love the color combination I used with this card – Summer Starfruit, Cherry Cobbler, and Garden Green.  Want to know a great little tip?  When you are cutting out lots of layers for a card class, shoebox swap, or regular swap, save those 1″ strips and run them through the Big Shot with the Tasteful Trim die.  I love just having a pile of them ready to go for quick and easy cards!

Secret Garden Thinking of You Card

Here is another collage-style card made from a One Sheet Wonder page.  Love those!  The phrase is from the Wetlands stamp set; the flowers are from Secret Garden.

Secret Garden Simple Friends Card

Have you guessed I love our Secret Garden stamp set?  This is a swap card I made for one of my online swap groups last spring.  I love the simplicity and the color combination.

Secret Garden Calypso Coral Card

This is a new color combination for me – Calypso Coral and Wild Wasabi.  The Stripes embossing folder adds a little depth to the card too.  Sweet and simple – hope you like it!

Secret Garden Watermisting Card

I love our watercolor paper – it is so thick and absorbs watercoloring techniques so well.  Here is a card made using the Secret Garden stamp set and the Water Misting x2 technique.

Secret Garden Square Lattice Card

Secret Garden is another stamp set carried over from the Occasions Mini Catalog that I love!  The bold images have such a tropical feel.  Not quite enough to bring out my coconut bra, but I do hear the Hawaiian guitars strumming in the background when I use this set.

I used the Square Lattice embossing folder after I stamped the images.  I doubled up on the butterfly punch and attached the top, folded one with a glue dot.  My stampers never used the ticket punch before – it is perfect for some of our smaller phrases (this phrase is from Sweet Essentials)!  Now that I look again at the card, I need to add some gems to the centers of the butterflies.  They need a little sparkle!

Secret Garden Painted Overlay Birthday Card

At last month's Technique Tuesday class, I taught my stampers the Craft White Painted Overlay technique.  This is a great way to color in line image stamps.  Here is the card we created:

The colors used for this card were Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple, and Primrose Petals – love this combo!
