Grace's Garden with Garden Gateway Dies

I continue to play with Grace's Garden, and coordinating
Garden Gateway dies on page 13.  This bundle offers such a
nice opportunity to create a variety of garden scapes.
You can use just the fence, extend the fence or focus on
the sentiment seen through the trellis.   I personally enjoy
using the Vanilla Cardstock for this bundle, creating
soft, elegant cards.

Honey Bee with Detailed Bees Dies

I had to share another Honey Bee project.  This bundle,
on page 30 of the Jan-June 2020 Mini Catalog, includes the 
coordinated Detailed Bee Dies.  I just can't explain how cool these
bees are, or how realistic they look in person.
I used the Absolutely Argyle 3D Embossing Folder 
(page 47) for the background layer.

Clubhouse Set with Gold Club Dies

I often mention stamping with my dear friends
Mary and Jo.   We are all Stampin' Up! demonstrators
and enjoy inspiring one another.

Jo came up with this idea, using the Golf Club dies
on page 48, to create a golfing silhouette.  Brilliant idea Jo.
The golf clubs and grasses are also part of this set of dies.
The sentiment comes from the coordinating Clubhouse set,
and was cut out with the Stitched Rectangles dies.

Born to Shine

My Pilates instructor is a ballet dancer, so that "required" me
to get the Born to Shine set on page 143.  It's such an 
easy set to use and color.  In this example, I used a lot
of gold, against the green.  I know, the shine makes
it hard to see, but a dancer needs to sparkle!

Stamp Off Honey Bee with Painted Harvest

Happy Friday friends!   Susan, Buffy and I have
challenged ourselves to use our favorite product from
the January-June 2020 catalog.  

The biggest challenge today was to pick the product to use.
I went back and forth between Grace's Garden and the
Honey Bee set with coordinating Detailed Bee Dies
(page 30).  You can see which won out although it
was a close race!  I picked the Honey Bee set, because  it
can be used for guys or gals, and people of all ages.

For this project, I created the background with the wonderful
Painted Harvest stamp set on page 128 of the annual catalog.
I felt that the bees and sunflowers were a perfect combination.
The sentiment was cut out with the Stitched So Sweetly
dies on page 20 of the new catalog.   

Thank you for stopping by, and please click on to see
Buffy and Susan's favorite products!

Grace's Garden with Garden Gateway Dies

Sorry I"m late posting today.  Life is happening!
I love Grace's Garden (Jan-June 2020 catalog page 13), 
so this is another card that
I made with this wonderful bundle.
