NEW Stampin' Up Sale-a-bration freebies available now!

Have you seen the new Sale-a-bration goodies that you can earn for free? Stamp sets, papers, accessories... check them out here. Aren't they gorgeous?! Nature's Perfection is my favourite of the stamp sets and as soon as I had a spare minute I did one of my favourite things with it... come and see:

This is the thing that made me happy when I started stamping six years ago - creating a garden with stamps and inks! For this card, I combined a beautiful image from Nature's Perfection with other stamps from Butterfly Basics and Painted Petals. A girl can never have too many leaves or flowers in my opinion!

This is also one of my favourite ways to add a sentiment. Stamp it onto a piece of card stock, punch it out and staple it to the card front. You can see other examples of that here and here. That's the beautiful Wild Wasabi cotton twine behind the sentiment - I drew a couple of lines with a Mossy Meadow Stampin' Write marker and tied the twine around it. TIP: To reduce bulk, snip an indent on both sides of the panel with a pointy punch such as the Mosaic Punch.

Puppies and gardening don't really go very well together so until Eva has become a grown up lady dog I think I might have to stick to gardens of the inky variety!

Our garden is looking dreadful at the moment. Here's a photo of its latest feature...

... a 'twig' that my youngest son helped Eva to bring home from a walk. It looks like the Loch Ness Monster for goodness sake! Puppies and gardening don't really go very well together so until Eva has become a grown up lady dog I think I might have to stick to gardens of the inky variety :)
