Crazy Crafters Blog Hop July - Favourite Colour Combo

Welcome to the Crazy Crafters blog hop for July. This month we are excited to show off our Favourite Colour Combo's! You may just be starting the blog hop here (Studio Evans) or you may have come from the person previous to me in the list below. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you can see all the projects.

My favourite colour combination this month has definately been all about deep, rich wintery colours. I'm in love with the beautiful colours in the Farmers Market Designer Series Paper pack - the deep purples, red's and greens inspired my projects along with the help of the 'Gift from the Garden' Stamp set.  Here are my cards...
Garden Designed Paper
I created my own designer paper by randomly stamping the images in different colours. Its important to stamp off the edges aswell.  I added a bit of linen thread for some extra ruggeredness.

Lots of Pots
This is a cute little one! I knew straightaway that I wanted lots of dimension on this card. I raised the pot plants on some dimensions and added the little pansy flowers with glue dots. The leaves are from the bird builder punch. Here's also a nifty trick for using DSP.

I {heart} the Garden
I love this card!! It turned out way better than I initially designed. I overlapped all these cool label bracket cut out and added the 1" square cut out on top. If you look carefully I actually created a longer washi cut out for the greeting. Simply cut a strip of 5/8" vanilla cardstock, stamp your greeting then insert each end into the washi punch for the zigzig edge.

I'm loving my own 'gifts from the garden' - here's a pic of our last lot of Capsicums, guarded there by Mr Marco!
