Garden Seeds

It's hard for me to pick a favorite from this  Inspired By Stamping release, but this set, Garden Seed Packets, may be it. It has so many gorgeous images, beautiful sentiments and a large frame image that can be used for much for than just garden themed projects. For my card I stamped the seed packet from the set directly onto the gorgeous digital paper and layered a hand stitched crepe paper rosette. I edged the rosette with glitter glue and added another image from the Vintage printables. The sentiment and ticket are also from the printables and the sweet 25cent stamp and lines are also from the Garden Seed Packets stamp set.

Lots more sewing, liquid pearls and some twine to finish it off.

For my last project I really wanted to use the Gratitude Seeds sentiment, so I decided to make a gratitude journal. I must say I really love how it turned out...even hubby liked it! I used all sorts of patterns from the digital papers and printables and made the seed packet frame the star of the show again. I also used crochet tape, little leaves, mini roses and cherry blossoms. I colored the very outside edges of the seed packet frame with Copics and then added bits of glitter to glue strips so that when it dried they are raised, some dry embossed vellum, twine and of course pearls!
I hope you have enjoyed and been inspired by this release. It has sure been inspiring for me and I have loved creating with all the gorgeous stamp sets and digital papers. Thanks so much for visiting me and I'd love to hear your thoughts!
