Gardeners Know the Best Dirt!

I have a lot to share with you this week as Hanna Stamps is releasing 4 new stamp sets this Friday 4th May. I can hardly wait to show you all the wonderful new stamp sets.

The first set I am sharing with you is "Garden Hanna" all the stamps included in this scene except for the grass & sentiment are from this new set ... these are just some of the stamps included in this stamp set ... there are actually 15 stamps in this set. I am sure this set would be great to create cards for males as well as females.

When my DH saw this card the other day while we were eating breakfast ... he asked me if this was the closest I would get to gardening ... for ages he has hoped I would join him out there to garden but alas I am still not convinced LOL ... I will stick to stamping gardens and let him to the real thing ... besides knowing me I would go out and weed and pull out the real plants and leave the weeds behind ;) .

To create my scene I started by stamping Hanna on my card, I created a mask for Hanna and then stamp my wheelbarrow so it looked like it was behind her. I also created a mask for the pot stamped the first one at an angle and then stamped the second one behind it upright. I carefully stamped that cute snail so it looked like it was sitting on the pot. The potatoes have also been masked ... as it is a single potato in the set ... I stamped my top potato and kept masking while I continued to stamp the others. The grass I stamped last and it is from "My Best Friend" set also by Hanna Stamps.

I received the sentiment a couple of years ago in a set from Club Scrap ... I thought this was perfect to add to my card esp as I had stamped the bag of dirt in my scene.

Come back tomorrow as I will have another card using another of the new sets.

Join us on the Hanna Stamps member forum of SCS for the release party Thursday 1st May at 9pm EST ....See some great preview peeks and participate in some fun prize challenges.
