Cartridge Showcase: Garden Soup

Hello everyone!!  I am delighted to bring to you a showcase of the cartridge, Garden Soup.

This cartridge has some wonderful images, phrases, and borders.  And I do think it has some of the best  3D projects ever.  

Today, I have three cards to share with you using the Garden Soup cartridge.  The first one is a little card made with the honeycomb shape.  The one I am using is plain.  Hoever there are some great honeycomb shapes that include design cuts.   

The little honeycombs were cut at 1 inch.  I ran them through my zyron to make it easy to place them on the card.  The little flower is also cut from Garden Soup.  The white paper was embossed with the Swiss dots folder and inked around the edges with black.  The senitment is a stamp from Inkadinkado.  It was added to the card with foam tape.  The bird sticker is from a set that I found int he $1.00 bin at JoAnn's.  And of course, I just had to add ribbon and twine.

My next card makes me think of planting that spring garden.  And it is about that toime of year.  

Isn't this wheelbarrow wonderful!  I hand cut the dirt and added it.  The wheelbarrow is inked with a little pewter.  The watering can, shovel and pick are also from the Garden Soup cartridge.  

The little birds I added to the card are from ColorBox and came from JoAnn's.  The sentiment is fromt Just Rite Stampers.  The labels for the sentiment were cut with Spellbinders dies, and then inked in pewter.

Here is a little card that will surely bring the sunshine.  

The base of the card is kraaft.  I added a pale yessow mat and then topped it with a white mate.  I used an embossing border folder called wicker weave on the left of the card.  I then inked it with a little charteuse and added three little yelow gems to it.  
The daffodils were cut from the Garden Soup cartridge.  I then added some yellow glitter glue to them. The sentiment is from Just Rite Stampers. The labels for the stamp were cut with Spellbinder dies.  The white label is inked with chartreuse and the green mat is inked with green.  I added another little yellow gem to the sentiment.  To complete the crd I added a pretty sheer yellow bow.  

Thank you for joining me for this showcae.  I have had so much fun with the cartridge, that I am not putting it up until I make a few more projects.  Drop back by my in a few days to see those projects as well.
