Stampin' Up! supplies: Cantaloupe, Olive and Mossy Meadow cardstocks, Gold Soiree designer paper, vellum and card base embossed with Lovely Lace folder, three flower punch and half pearl to embellish. Stamp set is hostess Hello There.

Upsy Daisy Garden

The first card is basically a case of a sample from an older SU catalog layout using Upsy Daisy and various designer paper.
The second card was made monochromatic because I tried to save a smear on the stamping of Corner Garden so went with some Smoky Slate sponging to try and save it :) Lovely Lace embossing folder and I Like You sentiment, mini silver brads to embellish.

Corner Garden

This is my favorite stamp from the new catalog, the Corner Garden background stamp. New Blendabilities markers used to color. I had a really hard time getting the caps on and off of many of these. Hope they loosen up some or I'll have to eat more spinach I guess. (Popeye reference for the younger folks :)
Sentiment is from the new Flower Patch set.

Thought I would work on my box of random stamped images while I await my new Stampin' Up! catalog goodies. I'm anxious to try the new Blendabilities markers to see how they stack up against the Copics. My favorite thing from the new catalog was the Corner Garden background stamp, this was the only thing that got an involuntary squeak out of me when I saw it :)
These cards for OWH troops use SU penguin and Island Oasis paper with a cute little Aloha and hibiscus stamp that I got in Oahu in April. The turquoise card is for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge this week.
