Five Minute Monday ~ April 25, 2022


Today's 5 Minute Monday cards were designed using 2 different stamp sets, both equally as beautiful. Dragonfly Garden ( which we used last week ), and Garden Wishes.

I'm pretty sure I sang the praises for both of these sets last week! I find them extremely amazing to create with. Each set contains so many elements to make such simple yet, beautiful cards. 

The Dragonfly Garden Bundle has endless possibilities for gorgeous cards, especially with the dragonfly punch. 
It's perfect for spring, summer and even fall cards. 
Priced at $49.50 for the bundle. 
It will be carrying over to the new catalogue set to release on May 3, 2022. 

Garden Wishes Stamp Set is currently reduced to $18. and the Dandy Wishes die Set is reduced to $24 in the Last Chance Product Sale. This sale ends on May 1, 2022, and these products have been going fast!
Both this stamp and die set, again, have the potential for absolutely amazing cards. 

Pair the stamp sets above with my "Feature Products" for this month Ladybug Trinkets  and Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon, both can be found in the clearance bin for $4.10. Always check our Clearance Bin!

 That's enough to make them a feature product for me! How cute are these Ladybugs on our card today?! 

The Ladybug Trinkets and this ribbon are simple little additions to your cards that just takes them to simply amazing cards. The price just adds to the amazing part! 

Bumblebee Trinkets can also be found in the Last Chance Product Sale right now for $8.10. I absolutely love these bees! 

Ok, Now that I've shared all of this great info above with you, let's get to our Five Minute Monday Tutorial!!
