Even though I'm not hopping, I created one more card because I just couldn't help it! I am just so loving this Stained Glass Coverplate die! I paired it with the Create die and the Eat, Sleep Create stamp {Side note: the Eat Sleep Create stamp set feels like it was made for ME.  I truly love this set and I can't wait to make tons of cards for my fellow artists and crafters!!!}. To create the background, I used inks Shea Butter, Skylight, Polished, Sugared Lavender, and Midnight.


How great is that Stained Glass Coverplate die??!?! I needed this in my life! And I have already used it more times than I can count! I might have a problem.  :)

All of the products from the Zen Garden Collection are available now! There is an easy peasy One Click Bundle Option where you get every single part of the collection, including the inks.  Click HERE for that option.

Zen Garden Blog Hop Day Two

Hi!

Welcome to day two of the Zen Garden Release Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from my good friend Laurel's blog.

This collection is so much fun! I rally had a blast creating and creating and creating! If you want the entire collection, click HERE for simple 1-click buying!


Let's get right to it! I've created a few cards (I did post one yesterday, too, so scroll down or click here if you missed it... And more to come, wink, wink!) using the new Zen Garden Collection.  This Collection couldn't be more fun! Today we are featuring the Love Grows Stamp Set and coordinating Dies!

For my first card, I used the Love Grows stamp set, along with the Chevron Cheer stamp set.  I also used the You die cut and Shea Butter, Polished and Midnight inks.


I think the color combo is just too fun! It makes me think of the sunset at the beach!

Next, I wanted a spring themed card (I can only dream that Spring will be here soon in Chicago).  I used Rose Petals ink to create the color on the card base, along with Shea Butter, Seafoam, Polished, Midnight and Sugared Lavender.  I strictly used the Love Grows stamp set to create this simple scene.  Instead of sequins or dots, I used the stamp set to create faux embellishments.



My final card is simple, but I think packs a lot of pop.  I stuck only with Polished and Shea Butter inks to create an ombre effect by blending them together.  I used the flowers again in the Love Grows stamp set and the Smile die to complete the card.


P.S. I did ALL of my stamping using the amazing stamping block in CP's store.  They are the perfect size! There is a 5 Block Bundle that I feel is an essential.  I have one set and I am going to buy another set for my daughter to use.



Next up is Jenny!

Zen Garden Blog Hop Day One!

Hi!


Today is day one of the Zen Garden Blog Hop! You will have to comment to win!

Full Hop List:
Catherine Pooler
Kristie Goulet
Ardyth Percy-Robb
Ilina Crouse
Justine Hovey
Kelly Martin
Jen Carter
Susan Powell
Lisa Harrolle
Ingrid Blackburn
Dana Joy

Even though I'm not hopping, I wanted to give you a little peek; I've created a few extra cards I just had to share!

And... if you want to just get the whole collection in ONE CLICK, go HERE!

These two cards were created together! I used the Stained Glass Coverplate die to create a die cut AND a mask (on the next card).  I also used Faithful Flutterings and Doodle Garden Background, along with  the Thanks die.  I used Polished, Shea Butter, Skylight and Sugared Lavender inks.


As I mentioned previously, this card was created using the above die cut as a stencil (Stained Glass Coverplate die).  Since it was black cardstock, none of the ink showed up, so I was able to use the die cut twice!



Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow, hopping around with some more cards to share!
