Zen Garden Release Blog Hop Day 3: Eat, Sleep, Create Stamps and Dies

Share This!


In today’s blog hop, we are featuring the Eat, Sleep, Create Stamp Set, the Create Die and the Doodle Garden Stamp Set.

Eat, Sleep, Create

My projects today do not include Doodle Garden (!!!!!), but you will see lots of great card ideas using that set in the blog hop and next week as well!

Eat Sleep Create and Chevron Cheer This card was pretty easy to create.  I started in the top corner with Rose Petals, stamped a couple flowers from the Chevron Cheer Stamp Set, then moved forward in ROY G BIV order!  I used every color in the Spa Line of inks to create the floral background pattern.

(ROY G BIV = Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet…rainbow order!)

Eat Sleep Create This card uses all of the Zen Garden Collection inks from the Spa Line, in rainbow order as well, but the rainbow is more subtle.  I stamped the sentiments first, then chose a different graphic image to stamp on the background, beginning with Rose Petals and going straight through the rainbow!  I love the graphic nature of this card!


For each day of our blog hops, we’ll be choosing TWO commenters to win the Zen Garden Ink Pads!!  (if you purchased already, you’ll receive a $45 gift certificate)

Visit the blogs on this hop to see more great projects featuring the goodies in this collection!

    WOW, that Doodle Garden stamp is one of those OMG stamps, you see it and that has to come out of your mouth it is AMAZING. I saw the designers using the “thanks” die, that is so wicked cool, I really loved that. I have to admit, I just found you and your website and I have never tried your inks, I read about them and they sound awesome and I would love to try them. Thanks and glad I found you.

    Zanim więc weźmiemy się za kupowanie projektu, zastanówmy się czego nam potrzeba. Po pierwsze dowiedzmy się, jakie obiekty budowlane wolno stawiać w danej miejscowości. Rozmaite państwa posiadają jasne reguły, co do zabudowy. Bye http://ogrzany.pl/2017/11/07/stawiamy-dom/
