For my first card, I used the Elegant Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on a piece of Pool Party card and substituted the large Maple leaf for the Halloween doily. Garden In Bloom provides a varied selection of blossoms for two-step stamping and the cute as a button bumble bee.My tag is punched with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch, and some Delightful Dijon Dotted Lace Trim has been threaded through and tied with some gold Cording Trim.
For the second card, I decided to use a DSP(Designer Series Paper) instead of the Textured Embossing as a background. I'm a big
hoarder collector of patterned paper, therefore, I need to force myself to cut into its gorgeousness while the papers are still available. This piece of prettiness is English Garden and it co-ordinates officially with eight colours from the Stampin' Up!® range, It also matches the Garden In Bloom stamp set, so by selecting some of the colours listed on the back of the DSP pack, everything matches up beautifully. This is one of the great things about Stampin' Up!®, co-ordination of colour suites, stamp sets, papers and dies is carefully thought out, so you just need to start creating.
This time the sentiment was simply stamped onto a rectangle, and a few loops of the Gold Corded Trim was placed behind the corner overlapping the large leaf. It's not a complicated design to make, and very easy to change it up a bit.Which one do you prefer?
