Whimsical Memories

Life has just gotten in the way of blog posts again, but I really wanted to get in a quick post or two before the end of the month. Today's project is a boxed set of cards I created 2 years ago (yes, I'm that behind...or not!) using the beautiful Garden Whimsy set & Bella Rose DSP. It never made it to my blog as I'd submitted it for publication, then never got around to posting it when it wasn't accepted. My customers often mention it though & it's always been a favourite of mine, so I thought I'd post it as a farewell tribute, since Garden Whimsy retires this month (& I think is sold out too). Anyway, here's the whole set...
(click on the pic to view larger image)
The cards all include different Garden Whimsy images, but mostly the same sized card & DSP pieces & kiwi satin or riding hood red ribbon. Most of the sentiments are from 'On Your Birthday (which is still available).
Here's are all the individual projects, which may help you see the layers better.
For the 3 butterfly cards, I stamped a second image & cut out only the wings & secured them with glue dots near the body & dimensionals on the wing edges for a fun look.
The snail shells are cut out & raised on dimensionals too.
The tulip head & leaves are duplicated & raised too.
Finally, I made this box to hold all the cards.
Hope you enjoyed seeing this project, even though it's an oldie. I'm thinking I'll have to try making a new set using a new set using similar layouts - another thing to add to my list. Hope you have a happy weekend. Back soon I hope.
Inky wishes, Di

Très jolies cartes, j'aime beaucoup les couleurs. C'est très doux et très frais.

Wow! I think they would have looked gorgeous on any cover. You should definitely try another publication.
