Eden's Garden

 I am continuing with 5x7 cards and today I bring in the Hand Penned designer series papers color scheme.  Be sure to check out the video on my YouTube channel, you will get a chance to meet me face to face for the first time so you'll be able to put a face with the hands that make those projects!


Here is the card I made for today:

I used a sketch I found online for inspiration for the layout and while I didn't follow it to the letter it gave me a start to make the card.  Sometimes we just need a little push to get the creative juices flowing.

There is a sale going on throughout the month of March.  You can see details by clicking on the picture below.  The Mini Stampin' Cut Emboss machine and coordinating dies & stamp bundles are on sale for 20% off.  Be sure to check that out.

Happy Hedgehogs 5x7

 Today I am bringing you another 5x7 card. I am really enjoying making a bit larger card as it gives me so much more space to work with.  The slim line cards are a nice variation as well and I've done some of those in the past.  Click on this link to go to my page that explains how to make slim line cards and envelopes.  And you can see some of my past posts too.  HERE

Using the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set this time just the tree and the butterfly I really like how this card turned out.  I hope you will leave me a comment because I love to hear from my followers.

I love the sparkle that the In Color Shimmer Vellum has and it makes a very nice accent to this card.  The Brushed Brass Butterflies don't show up on the photo real well but trust me they look absolutely beautiful on the card.  Of course I have a YouTube video up with instructions, colors and tips so be sure to check that out.

Just wanted to remind you about the sale going on during March

Happy Hedgehogs

 I can't believe it is March already!  The daffodil and tulip bulbs are coming up and the crocus are blooming.  I am so ready for spring to be here.  Here (for me) is the pacific northwest, the Olympic Peninsula specifically.  We did get an inch of snow about a week ago but it went away fairly quickly.  The sun is out right now and I should be cleaning up the flower gardens and doing some much needed weeding but I needed to make some cards to share.  I have tipped the scales at over 400 followers so I don't want to stop now.

Today I am sharing a 5 x 7 card.  I was asked to create an anniversary card for a friend and I needed it to be bigger to make my elements fit.  It turned out so lovely I was inspired to keep going and make some more of that size.  A friend who services the card counters at the local grocery stores gave me a huge bunch of 5x7 envelopes so that is covered too.


This was fun to make.  The only element that is Stampin' Up! is the DSP from some discontinued package I can't remember the name of and the Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon still available in the current annual catalog.  The rest was done through my Silhouette Studio software and Cameo cutter.  I foiled the sentiment on the front and the inside verse with pink foil using my Heidi Swap laminator.  

Don't get me wrong, I love my Stampin' Up! products and most of the time use them exclusively but I am a crafter and I also can't just not have some of those things that Stampin' Up! just doesn't have.  I knew you would understand!

Enough of that though, here is today's card and it is 100% Stampin' Up!.  You will find the tutorial on my YouTube channel HERE.  You will get all the measurements and any tips or tricks used to make this card there.  It might be hard to tell from the picture but  like I said this is a 5 x 7 card.

Isn't this cute?  My husband loves hedgehogs so I just had to have this set.  We will be making this at the next workshop coming up next week.  I like the layout, I found the sketch for it online and then just made it work with the stamp set I had in mind.
