New stamp collection!

I recently received the new 'Jane's Garden' stamp collection by Oxford Impressions and couldn't wait to sit down and play with this set.  The set contains a variety of images centered around a spring and garden theme.  Just looking at this plate makes one want to wander outside and enjoy the quiet and peacefulness of nature!  It's a reminder that we shouldn't take this gift for granted.

When I went to show my hubby what I made and ask which was his favorite, he immediately pointed to the one with the daisies:)  I cut out the flowers from some scrapbooking papers and thought they'd look nice with the cute teacup.  I used a portion of a square lace doily that I purchased years ago at a stamp convention.  A few gems glued around the sentiment towards the bottom added a bit of color. 

My favorite card I made however, has to be the one with the little garden gate.  I recently purchased a few of the new die-delites from Spellbinders.  When I first saw this particular die, I knew I wanted it to use with the 'Jane's Garden' set.  The only thing you have to remember is to use a piece of wax paper between the die and your paper or it will get stuck in the die after you cut it out (believe me, I forgot the first time...dahhh!) Lol.

Maybe you'd like to play with this great set (or perhaps another similar one), so go check out Suzanne's new website -

Have a great week everyone and thanks for stopping by!


  1. Debbie they are both delightful!
    I can see why your DH selected the teacup as the daisies work a treat with that stamp BUT I just love that gate (this is when I wish I had a die-cutting machine).
    Suzanne will be thrilled when she receives them.

  2. These are so nice, Debbie! I'm with you and Lynne on favoring the one with the gate. I've been wanting those detailed Spellbinders dies but haven't bought any because I dreaded pushing them out! I never thought of using waxed paper. Thank you for that tip!

  3. Hey Debbie..Thanks so much for leaving me a comment that you stopped by my blog and liked what you saw! Yippee! I am now returning the favor! haha I love your cards!
