First up is LauraJane’s lovely poppy garden card created with our Lone Poppy (3×4 Photopolymer Clear) incentive stamp. The design is simple but so breathtaking!

Beautiful Butterflies 1, 4×6 Photopolymer Clear

First up is the first set our Beautiful Butterflies series! The first one in the series features gorgeous monarch butterflies at different angles.  There is also an additional layer for the three largest butterfly stamps so you can stamp within the wings.  The set comes in different sizes of additional angles and silhouettes. The front facing butterfly  measures approximately 2 x 1.5 inches at its widest points.

Our next set is our Beautiful Butterflies 2!  This set also come with several second layer stamps for the inner parts of the wings for the larger stamps within the set.  This is also a very versatile set as it comes with different angles and silhouettes of this butterfly. The front facing butterfly in this set measures approximately 1.5 x 1.5 inches at its widest points.

Beautiful Butterflies 3, 4×6 Photopolymer Clear

If you guys know me, you know I can never stick to just one variation of a design. So I went ahead and created our Beautiful Butterflies 3.  It’s a much simpler set than its counterparts but just as beautiful and detail oriented. The front facing butterfly in this set measures approximately 2 x 1.5 inches at its widest points.

brushed-hugs-water

Brushed Hugs, 4×6 Photopolymer Clear

Next up are three additions to our large Brushed series!  The large sentiment in each set can serve as a great focal point to your paper crafts. The Hugs sentiment measures approximately 6.5 x 2.75 inches at its widest points.

brushed-love-water

Brushed Love, 4×6 Photopolymer Clear

The Love sentiment measures approximately 6.5 x 2.75 inches at its widest points.

brushed-you-water

Brushed You, 4×6 Photopolymer Clear

The You sentiment measures approximately 6.125 x 2.5 inches at its widest points.

cling-large-dahlia-6x6-water

Dahlia Close Up, 6×6 Red Rubber Cling

Next up is our Dahlia Close Up background stamp which features a macro bird’s eye view of this beautiful flower.  Dahlias might be my second favorite flower (after peonies – of course 🙂 ).  This is a stamp in our new release which is a bit different from our other designs so I am very excited to introduce it!

the-new-pretty-4x6-clear-water

The New Pretty, 4×6 Photopolymer Clear

The New Pretty is another set that I was excited to introduce because it contains so many strong and uplifting messages for the individuals in your life who may be going through some difficult times or just need some encouraging words.

oscar-4x6-water

Oscar, 4×6 Photopolymer Clear

Our new Oscar set is a six step oscar statute layering stamp set (three layers each for the statute and base). With the actual Oscars Awards Ceremony right around the corner, right now is the perfect time to send someone a card telling them that they are the best person in the world!  The Oscar statue measures approximately .75 x 2.5 inches at its widest points.  The base of the statue measures approximately 1 x .75 inches at its widest points.

Mayline’s first card is a dreamy and pretty compilation of butterfly silhouettes (1 and 2) with a beautiful bold sentiment as the focal subject of her card. Her use of our Retail Therapy gal is pretty amazing!15972695_10154976507429216_5282128908522469518_o

LauraJane created a beautiful multicolored masked collage of butterflies from all three Beautiful (1, 2 and 3) series sets. That inlaid word die cut sentiment makes this card extra special.15723506_1146711512093911_3981194285266344104_o

butterflies

Next up is my card! I white heat embossed several butterflies from our Beautiful Butterflies 1 and 2 and then added some bold watercoloring to the background. I also popped up some gold heat embossed butterflies on vellum to add additional depth to the card. Next I added the embossed sentiment and popped it up over a glitter panel. I added a stitched border using our Double Stitched Rectangle dies. Lastly, I added Medallion Gold sequins to embellish my card. 15844889_1715576725422739_1386647696127538702_o

For Mayline’s next cards, she watercolored her butterflies to create a background of loose butterflies. 15800297_1146711528760576_3437933195133317628_o

Eunji’s set of cards created with our new Brushed (You, Hugs, Love) sentiments are bold and beautiful.  Her background pattern is stunning with white pigmented floral accents created with our Mini Wild Florals and Wild Peonies15875134_1130482563716127_1129218939663632695_o

LauraJane kept her next card simple with her lone Hugs but she adds a ton of interest by adding some delicate blending. 15896001_812817765328_5945566526938164756_o-1

Jenny’s coloring of our Dahlia Close up is all she needed for this gorgeous watercolored card. Her added rose gold foil accents adds some amazing interest!

dahlia

For my next card, I rose gold heat embossed our Dahlia Close up stamp and and watercolored with a Deep Violet zig marker. Instead of an aqua brush, I used a wink of stella brush to blend the color to add some shine.  For the sentiment, I made my own foil cardstock using our Rose Gold foil tape.  I added stitched elements using our Double Stitched Square dies15895444_1130482567049460_1213967162577192150_o

LauraJane’s striped accent is the perfect backdrop for her bold sentiment15875129_1307463429325745_1637232945369233969_o

Mayline’s next card is CAS but her reversed ray background adds all the interest that the card needs!

oscar

For my next card, I created a warm toned (Citrine Collection Inks) layered Oscar with a gray toned (Pewter Collection Inks) base.  I created a two toned background using the ray stamp from the same Oscar set. I stamped it first in our Light Onyx Dye Ink and then added alternating silver embossed rays. Next I added the matte gold frame created with our Matte Gold Adhesive Paper and Double Stitched Rectangle dies. Lastly, I added Medallion Gold sequins to embellish my card. 15937082_812817785288_2903249025634483646_o

Last but not least is Emily’s Oscar card! She embossed a single layer of our new Oscar set and added some glitter interest to create a sweet card for her hubby.

    I had missed day 2 and forgot to go back and do it. I’m so glad I did because a good friend just learned her breast cancer had returned and so many of these would be perfect for her. Thanks for so many choices!
