Garden Party & Tea Party, Pretty as a Picture

Hi all! I have a couple of hybrid cards made using new digital kits released at Two Peas to share with you.

I made this card using the pretty patterned papers from Betsy Tuma's Garden Party Patterns kit. These happy and cheery colors are perfect for any summer projects.

I used the adorable doll and cake from My Cute Stamps' super cute Tea Party set as my focal point. The sentiment is from PTI's Butterfly Dreams.

The tiny butterflies were punched with some scraps using Martha Stewart Crafts' 3-in-1 Butterfly Craft Punch and the grass was punched with this punch.

My second card is made using the beautiful patterned papers from Stacy Marks' Pretty as a Picture Paper Kit. I adore this newspaper ad paper and decided to keep this card simple to showcase the papers in this kit. I distressed the edges then inked the paper with tea dye and vintage photo to make it look like an old ad page. The sentiment is from this Hero Arts stamp set.

Hope you will have a chance to check out all the new digital releases at Two Peas here!

That's all I have for now. Hope you have a fantastic weekend! =)
