SHOPPING OUR STASH #28 - How Does Your Garden Grow

Welcome and good morning! This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we want to see anything that could be found in a garden on your projects. Flowers, veggies, birds, butterflies, bees, etc. How fun is that?! Here's the card I came up with:

 and the inside:

I love it when I can make a dent in my stash, and I was able to use a bunch of dimensional flower stickers that I've been hoarding forever. Some of the packages were dated 2006!! Woo hoo! The lattice die is rather large, so my card measures 5" x 7". The stems were die cut from a wavy border die, cut twice very close together to achieve that. The leaves were die cut from three different scraps of green card stock. The grass was a pre-cut purchase by Jolee's.  The banner and sentiment were stamped in Versa Mark, then heat embossed in white and fussy cut. Even added a die cut cardinal!

So, what do you have growing in your garden? Why not make a card or project reflecting it and link up at Shopping Our Stash? We'd love to see it. While there, please check out what my teammies created and leave them some love on their blogs! Thanks for visiting!

  6. Fabulous card, great use of stickers and the patience to cut those stems, awesome. Lovely inside sentiment.

  7. Hello Chris: I love this card, I have that Latice die and I don't use it all that much, you just inspired me to dig it out and give it some well deserved love.
    The flower stickers are amazing, I know what it means to hoard crafting stuff, so glad you used them for your beautiful card. The little Cardinal is adorable.
    Big Hugs,

  8. What a great garden scene! Love all those flowers, and the lattice trellis is such a perfect backdrop. Really love how you used a wavy border die for the stems, too. So clever!
