Fresh from the Garden.....

It's the end of the month, and you know what that means.....previews for new stamps!  Today is the third and final day of previews before the release tomorrow at The Greeting Farm and I get to share Garden Anya, Anya Strolls and the Fence die with you.      

For my first card I used Anya Strolls and the fence die:
When I first saw this stamp I absolutely fell in love with her ~ she is so stylish (love that jacket) and I her little dog!  I colored her with copics and cut her out.  I added some stickles to the dog collar and heart tag and gave Anya some earrings.  Instead of using the Fence die as, well...a fence, I decided to use it as a border piece instead by cutting off the bottom fence slats and threading ribbon through the openings.  I made a bow out of tulle, added a rose to the center and then added a few pearls to the bottom of the sentiment to finish it off.  

My second card used Garden Anya, the Fence die :
Another adorable stamp and perfect for this time of year ~ makes me wish I had some flowers in my garden to pick!  I colored Anya with copics and cut her out.  I used the die from the Mini Cloud's with Die Stamp Set and the Delicate Words Die set to add a sentiment  I added some stickles to her ribbons, the bows on her shoes, the butterflies and around the edge of the cloud.   

When I saw the new dies I was thrilled!  These fences are the perfect size for scene and with a few snips can be used for more than just fences!      

The paper on both of my cards is from the Just Because collection by Little Yellow Bicycle....after I got my stamps and dies, I came across this paper pad and ordered it just  for this release.   

Make sure you stop by the TGF blog to see some more gorgeous creations from a few of my fellow team members and to find out how you can win the new TGF Fence Die.

And.....be sure to come back again tomorrow for a Release Day Design Team Blog Hop!

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!  :)
