First, I have a project featuring the new stamp set Floral Sentiments 7 ...


I started with a white card stock base (5.5 x 4.25 inches) and added a soft blue mat.  I used Our Daily Bread Designs' Sunburst Background Die to cut and emboss my focal layer.  But before removing, I used a soft blue ink to color the embossed areas.  I stamped my image (North Coast Creations' Floral Sentiments 7) on Copic Compatible paper with a soft gray ink and colored with Copics.  I cut and embossed the image with ODBD's Vintage Flourish Pattern Die and added a soft blue card stock layer created with ODBD's Vintage Labels Die.  A white seam binding bow and sentiment panel with hemp tie finish it off.  Here is the new set you see...


And for my second card I used North Coast Creations' new Floral Sentiments 8 set...


I stamped my image with a rich cocoa ink on ecru card stock.  I created a base with dark brown card stock and used some new papers from Our Daily Bread Designs' Vintage Ephemera Paper Collection.  I used ODBD's Pennants Die to cut the banners and butterfly stamp directly from the paper.  I stamped the sentiment from today's release on a scrap of DP and die cut it with ODBD's Mini Tags Die  before adding a brad and attaching it.  

And here is the second release from this set...


Now I will send you on your way to check out all of today's fabulous projects.  Don't forget to leave some love on each of the blogs so you too can be entered into the drawing. 
Thanks for stopping by!
