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!
