3 from Bo Bunny Enchanted Garden


I received a wonderful Bo Bunny paper pad for Christmas called "Enchanted Garden." (thanks Donna :) It has all of my favorite colors of purple and green, so I pulled a few sheets out and used some of the printed elements included in the pad for these cards. First up, is a card using a mini postcard print, and I stamped the word "Hi" on it for the sentiment. I arranged all the random strips of dsp in a starburst pattern, then used Lil Inkers stitched rectangles to cut the panels. I matted everything with Island Indigo card stock.


For this one, I cut out the little ballerina printed images and layered them on some paper pierced and distressed mats of Island Indigo and lime green dsp, then dressed it all up with a background of lavender dsp from the pad. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.


Here's the third card using snippets of all the papers included in the pad. The mini postcard and dragonfly panel were also printed elements from the pad, but I stamped a SNSS sentiment on the postcard. I found a couple matching tiny brads in my stash that I attached to the dragonfly image panel just for fun. Again, everything is backed with Island Indigo cardstock.

Of course with all of the snippets used today, I'll be sharing these over at the Snippets Playground #171.

Thanks for the great gift Donna, it really makes for some beautiful cards!! These will all be heading to OWH in my next box.

Thanks for stopping by today and make it a great Tuesday!

Love all the different patterns in that paper pack and you've made some beautiful cards with it too. I never can seem to match paper that way - even when I know it goes together. Love your cards.

I knew this pack was "you" when I saw the colors but you have brought them to life like no one else could. Gorgeous cards, Carol. I wish I had the ability to bring things together as nice as you, but at least I get to share your creations with you. Thank Goodness for Blogs. Enjoy your evening.
