Garden Shed

I've had ideas going round in my head for a few days to use the Hardwood stamp to make a garden shed - not an original idea but this is my take on it.  The background was from my stash and seemed just right with the addition of a little extra blue brushed around the edges.  The shed was constructed from pieces of stamped card and I remembered I had a selection of miscellaneous die sheets on white card so I selected a fence, sponged it with Distress ink and over stamped with the wood grain.  The flowers on the trellis came from my little pot of saved 'waste' bits left over from various punches - yes I know, sad isn't it??  This time I picked out some flowers and little bits for the centres..  There were a couple of die cut cats on my table which I thought made a useful addition to the overall picture and luckily I remembered that somewhere in the depths I had a punch for the flower pots.

Shed - Hardwood stamp from Stampin' Up
Trellis - Tessatina die from Memory Box
Flowers - 'waste' saved from Tonic border punch
Leaves - Tattered lace die (chopped into small bits)
Cats - Impression Obsession die
Flower pots - punch which I've had for YEARS!
Grass - Marianne die


  1. How right you are, this stamp makes a super shed, the card is wonderful. I love all the use of die cuts it makes a great scene.
