I can’t believe how quick these days are flying! Today is 2011 baby and I am working with one of my all time favorite stamp set crushes, the Garden Variety set below:

Garden Variety Stamp Set

I don’t know if it’s because I have a cursed black thumb or what, but I simply adore all things gardening. This set has always been a favorite of mine and I am ecstatic to be able to show it off to you all today.

This card is actually inspired by an adorable print I found on Pinterest one day:

Hey there PTI lovers! Today is another wonderful celebration of Papertrey through the years and today is 2009! I am working with the classic Fruitful set below:

The Vault - Fruitful Stamp Set

I have two cards for you today using these adorable little fruits. And the first one is inspired by my childhood and something my hubby calls me, “Georgia Peach.” 🙂

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Design Team Fruitful

I couldn’t fight the urge to let that little peach shine on a card of it’s own and it’s now one of my favorite cards ever lol. Simple? Oh yes. Darling? To me, YES! 🙂 The natural twine bow added a bit of a hometown farmer’s market feel and the sentiment is just beautiful.

For my second project I created a cascade of deliciousness down my card. I seriously adore this set. Do you all have this one?? I’d love to see all of your creations with it! I accented my sentiment using Soft Stone ink and stamping the “made with love” circles in a few areas around the cascade.

Well hey there folks! How has your summer been going so far?? It’s been PRETTYYYYYYY hot here lately so I am glad to be hiding out in the craft room and setting it up from our move. Today I have a one layer leafy green birthday card for you using Lil Inker goodies from the last release.

I masked off a little portion to fit my stamped sentiment and then placed all of my stamped leaves around the edge to create a definitive border.

Here are the specific sets I used to create this card:

Welcome back to day 3 of the Lil Inker June Release Blog Hop!! You should have arrive here from Joy Taylor’s lovely blog! My projects today use the new Warm Welcome Stamp and Die Set. How adorable are these stamps and dies? I don’t know about you, but birds, wreaths, and flowers get me every time. I cut the square in the center using the new Fringe Scalloped Square Dies. The separate Welcome Die is also a perfect addition to this set. I love word dies. <3

I kept my next card super simple and neat. I went with a single color combo to accent the floral cascade with flowers from Warm Welcome and popped the Welcome Die up with multiple layers of the cut.

I finished the card off with a few (hard to see in the pic) rain stones.
