2 Garden Shed Card Ideas

Garden Shed Stampin' Up!Hello Friends,

It's peek gardening season here in Ohio, so I thought that it might be fun to highlight the Garden Shed stamp set by Stampin' Up! with 2 cards the same, but different.  This is a gardener's dream stamp set.  If you missed it, I also made a Garden Journal in a post last week also featuring the Garden Shed stamp set.

Garden Shed Card Making Ideas

For both cards, I started by stamping garden pots images from the Garden Shed stamp set.  Then, I colored both with my Stampin' Blends and cut a frame with my Stitched Shapes Dies.  My sentiments were cut with the same dies and Rococo Rose Card Stock.

I cut a window frame for each card using my Stitched Rectangle dies and Mossy Meadow Card Stock.  The plant-based designed paper in from the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper stack.

My flower was pieced together in less than a minute using the Pressed Petals Washi Tape.

I embossed my Crumb Cake card base with my Pinewood Planks embossing folder, then splattered it with Merry Merlot ink.

Fable Friends Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

I feel a bit like a squirrel lately storing up food for the winter.  Over the weekend I canned spaghetti and pizza sauce, salsa and jam.  And yesterday, we froze 32 dozen ears of corn.  Yikes, that's a lot of work!  Anyway, all that canning and freezing reminded me of the squirrel from the Fable Friends stamp set.  I made my old things look new again by putting together a card with the Colorful Season stamp sets and Seasonal Layers dies along with the Fable Friends stamp set.  Then I layered the whole collage onto the gorgeous Pressed Petals Designer Paper for a rustic autumn look.

3 Card Design Tips

  1. Decide on a color combo.  I used colors from the Pressed Petals Designer paper.  Choosing color combos is a cinch if you take your cue from your paper.  I love that Stampin' Up! lists the colors in the paper.  In the end, I chose Night of Navy, Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow.
  2. Next, create possible card elements.  For example, I stamped, colored and fussy cut my squirrel.  Then, I cut various shapes with my Stitched Shapes and Seasonal Layers Dies.   And finally, I tied a cheerful Crushed Curry crinkled bow.  Learn how to make great bows every time with this Double Bow Tutorial.
  3. And finally, move around your card elements to make a pleasing design.
