Garden Girl Thank You Cards

The Garden Girl stamp set from Stampin’ UP! was one of the first stamp sets I loved in the annual catalog.

I purchase it right away, and then there it sat.  On my shelf.  I know you know what I am talking about.

Anyway, I grabbed that sweet set last week and started playing with it.  I realized it actually is a fantastic set for Easter!

Today’s cards and projects combine ink blending and Stampin’ Blends coloring.

TIPS:

  • As much as I love Stampin’ UP!’s thick whisper white card stock, I feel like I get better results with Spectrum Noir Crafters Companion card stock when using alcohol markers.  It’s not a must, but it does lend itself to better coloring results.
  • When ink blending use a LIGHT touch to the paper and build up the layers.  You will have much smoother results this way.
  • Use a masking technique to get a one layer card result.  Stamp your images you want at the forefront first, then mask them with masking paper and stamp other images that you want to fall behind the first image.

    I can’t believe this stamp set is retiring, it did not get the love it deserved. One of my favorites and my girls love coloring these stamps as well.
