Today I am showcasing the new Pure Innocence Little Gardener Stamp set.
I have two cards to share with you today, for my first card I have used the Pure Innocence Little Gardener stamp set and the new Die-namics Mini Album Bracket STAX to create an Accordion card.
To create my accordion card I die cut the second largest shape from the Die-namics Mini Album Bracket STAX twice from Orange Fizz card. I used one of the borders from the Laina Lamb Designs – Border It – Mod Borders stamp set to create my background on these pieces using Orange Fizz ink.
The white piece was cut using the second smallest shape and smooth white card. To create my grassy area on the bottom of this panel I used the Die-namics Snow Drifts to cut a mask out of card and then used the new Factory Green ink which I sponged to the bottom area. The sky area I air brushed using my copic markers and the Die-namics Wonky Scallop Border for my mask.
The flower on the lower right hand corner of my card was created using the new Lisa Johnson Design Sweet Roses stamp set and Die-namics Roses and Leaves set.
Here is the inside of my accordion card. As you can see I have again used the Lisa Johnson Design Sweet Roses stamp set and Die-namics Roses and Leaves set.
To create the white piece inside my card I cut a piece of white smooth card so it was 3 1/4 inches wide. This was scored at 3 1/4 inch intervals. I need to cut another piece 3 1/4 inches square to add to the fourth panel at the end.
Here is a closer look at the side side of the inside of my accordion. The Roses were all created using smooth white card. I stamped the outline of the roses and leaves first onto my card using Licorice Black Ink and then over stamped with the solid stamp of the same image using either Lemon Drop Ink, Orange Fizz Ink or Factory Green Ink. Once I had inked all the pieces I used the coordinating die Die-namics Roses & Leaves to die cut each piece.
Here is a close up view of the right side of my accordion card. Basically everything on this side is the opposite of how it was placed on the other side.
Both sentiments on the inside of the card are included in the Lisa Johnson Design Sweet Roses stamp set.

For my second card today I have used the Pure Innocence Little Gardener stamp set and the Die-namics Blueprints 2 set to create my card. I have also used the largest rectangle piece from the Die-namics Blueprints 1 set so I could have my three layers I like to have when creating a card.
I have used Smooth White card, Orange Fizz card and Razzle Berry card to create this. Along the top and bottom of the smaller designer paper panel I have added one of the borders from the Die-namics Open Simply Scallops Trio set.
I used the tag (which I cut smaller) from the Die-namics Blueprints 2 set and some Hemp Cord for my sentiment.
To embellish my card I added one of the roses from the Lisa Johnson Designs Sweet Roses stamp set & LJD Die-namics Roses & Leaves set. The ink used on the roses are Black Licorice; Lemon Drop and Factory Green.
Here is the inside of my card. I added one of the sentiments included in the Pure Innocence Little Gardener stamp set which was stamped using Orange Fizz ink.
Along the bottom of the card I added a couple of elements from the Die-namics Blueprints 2 set.
