Summer Garden Blog Hop

Hi there! Today I’m joining Simon Says Stamp as well as Mama Elephant in a hop to promote the fabulous new Summer Garden stamp set and coordinating dies.SummerGarden (1)
This gorgeous new stamp set was designed in collaboration with Mama Elephant, and I adore the detailed flower images and especially love the fonts for the sentiments.SSS/Mama Elephant~Summer GardenI stamped the background using the On Point Borders stamp set in Smoke ink. Then I die cut the flowers and leaves with the coordinating dies, stamped the images, colored them with Copics and adhered them with foam tape over a little bit of loose thread.
