Graphic 45 secret garden number 5

IMG_8702 (Medium)This id the last in my Graphic 45 secret garden series for now, and i had fun with this one! A couple of dies used –  spellbinders nested tea cups for the vase, and Poppystamps madison window die. a  punch for a bit of greenery in the vase, and 3 kaisercraft flowers to fill the vase. I backed the window with some acetate, and used secret garden papers for the little girls image and the wallpaper background. Once made I couldn’t decide what ocxcasion it would be best used for and nearly kept it in my private collection (!) but thought maybe it would be suitable as a Mothers day card – we will see, if I still have it after Mothers day I will add it to my growing collection of cards I like too much to sell. Til tomorrow….

I fussy cut some paper to run down the right hand side of the card, and added some ribbon to hide the join.Another hot day here – it’s starting to get boring now….. so once again very little time spent in the craft room today, til tomorrow….

IMG_8699 (Medium)Graphic 45 secret garden patterned paper, and the image on this panel of paper doesn’t need anything else but a strip of lace! The cardstock is stampin up baja breeze. very  quick and easy! the weather is still conspiring against me, as well as hot it is now humid and there is so much moisture in the air my cardstock is warping  so again no visits to the craft room, although I did manage to make a few this morning before it really heated up- ready for a change of weather now…. til tomorrow…

graphic 45 Secret garden number 1

IMG_8697 (Medium)I only bought this range of papers ( Graphic 45 secret garden) the other day, but I couldn’t wait to start creating with it. it is by far my favourite range of papers at the moment! This first card is very simple, just one piece of patterned paper onto my card base, a little fussy cutting of another sheet and some lace, stampin up trim , a flower and some leaves punched from martha stewart frond punch to finish.Still hot here, I taught a very small class this morning, and we had some issues with the glue drying too quickly ( thats never happened before) so once again, there will probably be no crafting tonight – I am a bit over this hot weather! Til tomorrow….
