Trust God Stamp Set

Trust God Stamp SetHope you are having a good weekend!  Today’s card features the Stampin’ Up! Trust God Stamp Set, as well as the Secret Garden Stamp Set.  I think the card is very  pretty and soothing.

The Trust God Stamp Set is one of my favorites, and I am thankful it is not on Stampin’ Up!’s retiring products list.  My opinion is that the stamp set is great for cards of encouragement and to let friends and loved ones know you are thinking of them.

To make the card, I used VersaMark to randomly stamp the large flower from the Secret Garden Stamp Set onto a piece of Whisper White Card Stock.  The flowers were covered with Pewter Stampin’ Embossing Powder and heat set.   Trust God Stamp Set

Then I randomly sponged three classic inks around the card stock. I used the returning Soft Sky and Crushed Curry, and the current Melon Mambo classic inks.  I really like the look of blending inks.

Using VersaMark, I stamped the sentiment from the Trust God Stamp Set onto a small piece of Whisper White Card Stock, covered it with the Pewter Stampin’ Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Oval Framelits to cut out the sentiment and a Soft Sky Mat for it.  I added six Basic Rhinestones to give the card a little bling.  Before attaching the sentiment and mat to the card, I attached a piece of Soft Sky Ribbon to the center of the card.  (So glad I still have some of the Stampin’ Up products in the returning colors!)

TRUST GOD STAMP SET AND SECRET GARDEN STAMP SET

Stampin Up Secret Garden & Tea for Two DSP

What thoughts does your mind conjure up when you think of a Secret Garden?  I think of drifting through paths of beautiful flowers and floral trees and bushes as I daydream and push the stresses of life into the background.  I hear Irish music that carries me from Stampin Up Secret Gardenplace to place within the Secret Garden.  I enjoy beautiful butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, and other forms of nature as the aroma of many floral scents rush past my nostrils.  I sit on a bench, laying my head back and watching the sunshine peeking down through the tree branches as I drift off into a dream of floating from flower to flower.

Stampin Up Secret GardenThen I hear, “Bevvverrrly”!  I quickly awake and realize I’m in my crafting room creating a beautiful card with the Stampin Up Secret Garden Stamp Set.  Gee, I like my daydream! (LOL)  Here is the card I developed during this daydream.

Stampin Up Secret Garden

I tend to be attracted to pink or pinkish flowers.  My gardens have basically floral bushes of various sorts that bloom in shades of pink.  I venture to guess that is what controlled my creation as I developed this card with pinkish flowers.

Stampin Up Secret Garden

Yes, I know that the floral design I used from the Tea for Two DSP is supposed to be Calypso Coral in color.  However, I just don’t see it.  When I place a piece of Calypso Carol Card Stock next to the flowers in this floral design, I am NOT convinced that the color is Calypso Coral.  It lends itself more toward a pinkish color.  If you disagree, please feel free to set me straight!

Stampin Up Secret Garden

Stampin Up Secret Garden & Sycamore Street DSP

The largest flower in the Stampin Up Secret Garden Stamp Set is beautiful!  I’m not sure what type of flower it is so I made it whatever I wanted it to be (lol).  It is the feature on today’s card share, as well and the Stampin Up Sycamore Sycamore Street DSP.

Stampin Up Secret Garden

I really like the colors Pool Party and Calypso Coral together.  I know that the design colors from the Stampin Up Sycamore Street DSP that I used are actually Pool Party and Tangerine Tango.  However, the Tangerine Tango in the design is not dominate, so I used Calypso Coral. This DSP is part of Stampin Up’s Sale-a-bration, and you know what that means!  When you purchase $50 in Stampin Up products, you can receive the DSP for FREE.  We all like FREE, don’t we?   

Here is a closeup of the flower from the Stampin Up Secret Garden that I colored with various alcohol-based orange inks.

Stampin Up Secret GardenThe following picture is a closeup of the new Stampin Up Designer Builder Brads that I used.  I punched out two butterflies with the Spring Catalog’s Bitty Butterfly Punch  and adhered them to the center of the brads and placed epoxy bubbles on top (the epoxy bubbles come with the brads).

I used the Stampin Up Ovals Collection Framelits to cut ovals from Pool Party and Calypso Coral Card Stock and attached the flower and brads.  The sentiment, “Just Because”, is from the Sale-a-bration Vintage Verses Stamp Set (another FREE product when purchasing $50 in products).Stampin Up Secret Garden
