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 everyone! I am SUPER excited to share my very first Papertrey Ink post with you today!! We are celebrating PTI over the years this month and today is all about 2007! I am working with the gorgeous Beautiful Blooms set below:

The Vault - Beautiful Blooms Stamp Set

For my project I created an almost one layer card. πŸ™‚ I started by stamping those big beautiful branches of leaves in Limeade Ice and accenting them with Simply Chartreuse dotted leaves. One of my favorite things about this set is the added whimsy that the dotted accents and the outlines provide. It totally brings this set to a whole new level and completely increases it’s usability.

My sentiment is stamped on a piece of Soft Stone cardstock and adhered with dimensional adhesive. I love accenting cards with rainstones because they add so much interest to a project without distracting from your overall focal design. πŸ™‚ And seriously… how fun are those flowers?! It amazes me how fresh and on trend this set is when it was created in 07! <3

I created a relaxed natural look by stamping the leaves in a green ombre and off setting a lot of their accent stamps. The little dots are from the Love Notes set.

For my second project I created a monotone card with greys and distressed the ink a bit for another relaxed/aged look. I loved how if you use certain combinations of these stamps they can also look like feathers. πŸ™‚
