I received a fun selection of new things from the release: a large cling stamp, an amazing large die, and a fun stencil. Here are my projects with them.
First up, the SO BEAUTIFUL cling stamp.
supplies: white, black, and Surf Blue cardstock, SO BEAUTIFUL cling stamp, Zig markers and water, tumbled glass distress ink, clear sequins for the centers of a few flowers
The sentiment in that lovely font is part of this cling stamp, a nice bonus!
Next I played with this amazing HIBISCUS BLOOM die.
supplies: teal, white, and hot pink cardstock, HIBISCUS BLOOM die, Bold Hello die, distress oxide inks in carved pumpkin, picked raspberry, mustard seed, mowed lawn and black soot, Newton's Nook Tropical Leaves stencil, adhesive foam to pop up flower
I cut my flower from white cardstock, colored the petals and leaves with oxide inks and a sponge, then reinserted them back into place. I embossed a stencil for my background.
And lastly, how do you like this fun RADIANT HEARTS stencil?
supplies: white cardstock, RADIANT HEARTS stencil, distress inks and a blending brush, sentiment from Leafy Frames, Stitched Circle die, adhesive foam to pop up sentiment circle .
