Sycamore street secret garden

Hello there, phew what a busy week, four classes in four days!

I have had a relaxing day off today which included going out with my hubby for a Sunday Lunch.  I have one more class tomorrow and although I will be having a few days off this week from teaching classes I will be using the time to plan future ones

Here are some of the cards we made in the classes this week.

The first card is an easel card. Colour combination pool party, island indigo and whisper white. The card base was cut from the Scallop Square Bigz Die. 

I used the petite curly punch and Sycamore Street designer series papers which are both from Sale-a-bration and cut out 15 shapes. These were glued onto a piece of whisper white card and then it was run through the fancy fan embossing folder to create the textured design.

One of the stamps from the pretty petites stamp set, also from Sale-a-bration, was inked with Island Indigo and stamped twice and punched with the petite curly punch and added to the card with dimensionals

The colour combination of the next card is primrose petals, lucky limeade and whisper white

Secret Garden stamp set and framelits and Oh Helly Stamp Set and Framelits were used to create the card along with the Honeycomb embossing folder

The butterflies were stamped using the baby wipe technique again, I just love this technique that it creates a different coloured image every time it is stamped.

 The last of the cards used pool party again! This is a wonderful colour but think I must try harder to use a different one next time!

The secret garden stamp set was used to stamp the card in versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. A strip of the Sycamore Street DSP was attached to some Calypso Coral and edged with the scallop border punch in whisper white.  Sentiments used are from the teeny tiny wishes. 

Thank you for stopping by


  1. Thanks for our class Linda. I really loved these two. Even though I got stressed sticking the 15 shapes in a random but orderly fashion. xxx

  2. As ever they are all beautiful. Enjoy your rest. Zx

  3. Lovely cards, Linda. I do like the Sycamore Street papers and I will be sorry to see them go. Perhaps they will bring them back like they did with twitterpated...I do hope so.xx
