Secret Garden Stamp Set

I made this card a few weeks ago at the StampNation LIVE retreat.  During the weekend, I didn’t get much time to stamp (I was organizing and planning and teaching and arguing with the hotel most of the time, lol!), but that was ok….Saturday night I was able to sit down for a few hours and make a few cards.  I don’t own the Secret Garden Stamp Set, so I borrowed Maureen’s that night and had some fun.

This card is a bit different, I love playing with shapes and their negatives…so many fun things you can do!  I die cut extra flowers so I could play later as well.  When I got home I had these pieces and flowers and such sitting on my stamp table for a while.

I finally got around to playing with them and made a video for StampNation which went up yesterday…here is a peek at it:

Have I pushed you over the edge YET to become a member?  One of the most common things I hear from new members is “Why did I wait so long to join??”!  Which is a wonderful thing to hear, but if we can avoid it, let’s do! :)  Membership would be a perfect Mother’s Day gift!

I have been using leftovers from one card to make another card quite a bit lately.  I encourage you to do so as well, it’s fun and pushes you a bit to be creative!

Before I go, I want to share a few photos that I took during the last couple of hours of the retreat.  Some of the ladies laid their cards out so we could photograph them.  If I have shared YOUR cards, please let me know so I can put your name on them!

Incredible talent, right???

Thanks for stopping by and have an AMAZING Mother’s Day Weekend!  (Not day, because I celebrate all weekend long, whether my family does or not!)

    I love that “leftover” card. The colors are just gorgeous together.
