Back to the Mystery Pieces. Here are the pieces Sandy sent to us.

As you can see, we were given a piece of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP), Basic White Cardstock, a die-cut from Basic White Cardstock, Linen Thread, Evening Evergreen Windowpane Check Ribbon, and Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen Cardstock. Oh – and some embellishments, which I think are Opal Rounds. (Disclaimer – I made my card in February, so I may have mistaken some of the products. I’m old and my memory isn’t what it was.) Here’s my card.

Garden Birdhouses, Stampin' Up!

I was so excited to work with these products! I like to “transform” what I’m given, so the first things I did were to color the Evening Evergreen Windowpane Check Ribbon and the scallop die-cut Basic White Cardstock. I colored the ribbon with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and the card stock with Soft Suede Classic Ink and a Blending Brush.

I used one of the Scalloped Contours Dies to die-cut a window from the DSP. Then, on the larger Basic White Cardstock, I stamped the branch and two birds from the Garden Birdhouses Stamp Set. I colored the branch, leaves, and birds with Stampin’ Blends, then layered the stamped image behind the window.

I adhered the Evening Evergreen Cardstock to the Soft Succulent card base, then added the stamped image and the DSP. The final touches to the window were the scalloped die-cut and ribbon.

I used the Cloud Punch with a scrap of Basic White Cardstock to punch the sentiment cloud. I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Birdhouses Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Classic Ink, then added it to the card. The embellishments are scattered around the images.

I had so much fun with these pieces! Thanks, Sandy!

Here are the cards from the rest of the team.

This is Carol’s card.

I love the tulips and the way she used the Tailored Tag Punch as a vase!

This is Chris’s card.

Love that gatefold card!

This is from Christy. Don’t you just want to sit under those palm trees with a cool drink?

Oh, my goodness! Liz’s layered easel fun fold blew me away!

Nadine’s card is so clean and classic. I love the “wall hanging” behind the plants.

And this is Sandy’s. I love the butterflies and the added yellow to the flower pot.

As always, I am so proud of my team! They did an amazing job with this and their cards are all so different!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day – and don’t forget to shop on Thursday!
