Secret Garden & Summer Silhouettes

The new mini has lots of goodies that I just had to have in it.  One of the great new "bundles" was the Secret Garden bundle.  Not only do you get a stamp set but you also get the dies to match at a discounted price!  I just love all the new dies.  If you can't have a punch for every shape, the next best thing is a die to do the cutting for you - there should be more!!!

All the cards this week were done in Shimmer White cardstock.  This one used some Pool Party DSP.  We stamped the flowers with Pool Party.  We cut out a flower from the front panel of the card and then stuck it to the inside of the card giving a window effect.  The other two flowers were raised up with dimensionals and pearls added to all the flower centres.  Simple card but better in real life.
This was our second card done with the same Secret Garden flower.  Firstly, we stamped the flower onto the card in Pink Pirouette.  We then stamped them onto watercolour paper in Rasberry Ripple and watercoloured them.  The little flowers are from the Flower Trim ribbon on page 5 of the Mini and the words are from Bloomin With Kindness.

This card used the Summer Silhouettes set.  The words are from Teeny Tiny Sentiments.  The colours are Melon Mambo and Lucky Limeade. 
All three cards were very quick and simple to make but looked like a bit of effort had been put into them.
