Vertical Garden Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up!

Hello Friend —

Just dropping in to say Hello.  Here’s a cute and simple card when you just want to send a quick note to let someone know you’re thinking of them.  I love the simplicity of the font chosen for this “Hello” stamp – it makes such a nice little greeting to send to a friend…..   The shadowed stamped image gives it a fun 3 dimensional look.  I borrowed the “friend” stamp from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set, (another favorite!)  Adding a bit of splattering to the project tends to be a great finishing touch to any project.  You can to this by dipping a small paint brush in a small puddle of basic gray ink and tap it against a marker, or pencil.  I would suggest you practice a bit to get a good feel for how to get the desired look.  Also, be careful to keep your project in somewhat of a contained area.  Splatters are known to stray a bit!



This stamp set is designed to coordinate with the Vertical Garden Project Kit – a super cute home decor piece.  A garden of flowers placed in a sweet little frame and hung by beautiful ribbon.  Included in the kit is a banner for you to stamp your greeting. The Vertical Garden stamp set is sold separately.  It offers a 2-step stamping technique to add a shadow to the words Welcome and Hello which gives the image a great 3-D effect.   I love the versatility of being able to use these images for more than just the home decor piece – they work great for your cards as well!

Valentine Collage

I love the 12 x 12 Framed Collage Projects.  Recently I was asked to come up with a Valentine Collage for a women’s crafting night.  Here’s the finished project.

I love the way it turned out, so much so that I’ve decided to offer it as a class.

If you are in the Sacramento, CA area and you would like to make this, go to my website to check out the details and to RSVP!




Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Stamping!
