From the Garden

This is one of those simple one layer cards. Nothing fancy, no embellishment, no extras, just an image.

When I saw this stamp when SU first released it, I just HAD to have it. You know, another one of those HAD to have stamps that we all have. I’ve used it a total of 3 times.

I’ve challenged myself to use all of my stamps. One by one I am going through my cabinet and other storage and using each set and stamp. If I find one I get no inspiration at all from or haven’t used in the past year I am setting it aside to sell or donate. My SU sets are in alphabetical order so went I got to From the Garden I knew I had to use it or put it in the pile.

I decided to use it because it just has so much potential. I colored it with my copics and tada – we have a card.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!

Michelle, you did a fabulous job with this stamp!! Your coloring is beautifully done! I should follow your lead and pull out those stamps that I bought and never used! Maybe I should vow to do that before I buy any more new stamps? Nahhhhh..... :)

Very pretty, this such a pretty image and you did such a great job coloring it that it does not need anything else. I find that blending and shading yellows are the hardest colors for me, but you did a great job.

Good for you using all your stamps! I am going through supplies and stamps trying to do the same thing.

Your stamps are so happy that you are spreading the love!! So am I because you do such beautiful work and I love coming to visit and see what you created. :) This is a gorgeous flower card!! I like the cards you can make and send to people "just because" - no holiday or celebration, just because you were thinking of them and this is a perfect example!
