A Garden of Delights with Rubbernecker Stamps

Welcome to the Rubbernecker Stamps' 
Stampin' Sisterhood Garden Hop! 
Today the Sisterhood is showcasing stamps of a "garden variety."  If you arrived here from Joan Ervin's beautiful blog, you are in the right spot! If not, start back at Anne Harmon's blog, because you will want to see each beautiful creation today, and have a chance at winning some fabulous prizes!

There are so many beautiful garden sets and individual floral stamps at Rubbernecker Stamps. I chose to make a card that really focused on the stamping and the stamps. I LOVE layers and designer paper and embellishments, but today I chose to just stamp!

I masked off a section of my cardstock and sponged Not Quite Navy and Rich Razzleberry ink in the background on Whisper White. I then stamped Floral #1 with the same two ink colors. The NQN image was stamped off first before adding it to the card while still masked. I took the masking off and then stamped the Rich Razzleberry images. I debated about adding a sentiment, but in the end decided to leave it for the inside of the card.

We are having a garden word search with our hop today and my word is DIG. Can you dig it?! Every hopper that leaves love along the way, collects the garden words from each blog, and leaves a comment at the Stampin' Sisterhood blog at the end of the hop (with email) will receive a code via email for 15% off your entire Rubbernecker order! There is much more fun to be had with more prizes too, so be sure to read all the deets at the end of the hop!

Now onto my lovely friend, Julia Aston, who has a gorgeous creation for you today!
