Garden Whimsy Swap



I made this card for a swap. I chose to use the Garden Whimsy set! It was for a 5-Set Sampler swap with my SU Little Debbies group. I used the card that I just made for a friend as my starting point! (This is the card.)

All products are from Stampin' Up! I started with whisper white, pretty in pink, cameo coral, and mellow moss card stock and inks. I also used the basic black marker and classic ink.

I created the flower, butterfly, and ladybug pretty much all the same way. I used my markers on the stamps. I started with the base colors on the stamp and then used the cameo coral on the tips of the flower and butterfly. Then stamped the image. I layered the tulip on to cameo coral and pretty in pink. I used my slit punch and a silver brad and sponged the edges in pretty in pink to add a fun touch. I mounted the butterfly on with dimensionals.


I used the scallop flower punch, 1 3/8, and the 1 1/4 circle punches to create the flower with the ladybug. I spong.ed the edges in pretty in pink. That is layered over a strip of mellow moss. The back ground was stamped with pretty in pink ladybugs. And for a fun touch I used dazzling diamonds and my 2-way glue pen to add some glitter to the flower, butterfly, and ladybug.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
