Greenhouse Gala!

Anyone who knows me knows that I am not one to sit and "mass produce" cards ...especially using all the same stamps, same design, DSP, etc. I was reading on a blog the other day that this gal had 30 invitations to make (forget if they were for a bridal shower or what...) and I thought to self ... "ummmm! Not sure I would want to do that." I guess I would have to put my mind to it and set up an assembly line...

So - why am I telling you this? Well!
One day, a couple weeks ago, I had a thought! :)
I said to myself, "Why don't you make a bunch of cards using the same DSP and one stamp set,  rather than making one card, putting that "stuff" away, and then doing another, etc." And self said, "Hey! sounds like a good idea."
So that is exactly what I did.

I made four 5X5 cards that afternoon using Greenhouse Gala DSP and the stamp set "Just Believe" - all from Stampin' Up! Today I am showing you 2 of them and tomorrow I will show you the other 2...

Here is card # 1:


 Here is card #2:

Today is a "storm day" around here... another wintery one! Maybe I'll get creative and attempt a challenge or two!
Stay snug and warm!
Thanks for stopping by...

Love the richness of these cards, Ruthie! This is such a wonderful DSP, and the jewels and texture add so much!

Both beautiful, but I love that color combo in #2 - beautiful details!! I have to do this more often and use up some old dsp, thanks for the inspiration
