I encourage you to check them out and add your own cards/projects.

MY CARDS: All products are listed below in the affiliate links, at no cost to you.
My first card uses the gorgeous, "Drawn Daisies" cling stamp. I couldn't wait to do a little water coloring with my Karin Markers, after white embossing the flowers.

These next cutie patooties are from the, "Unicorn Love" stamp set. There are several adorable images included in this set, giving you a ton of options for creating lots of fun cards! I just used simple Copic coloring to create a birthday card.

Okay, so this next stamp set is the cutest! It's called, "Gnome School." If you love gnomes, this one's for you. And I love the playful sentiments, making it even more fun. Especially for all those homeschooling moms and kids out there right now! Or should I say gnomeschooling? (hee, hee!)

My next card features the beautiful, "Detail Petal Plate." I have so many ideas for this one. It might look like this took a long time but it really was fairly quick to color and I love how it turned out!

And this pretty die is called, "Poppy Stem." I just cut out a bunch of them from white cardstock, colored them with Copic markers and adhered them to a black, slimline card base. The white splatters give it a bit more texture.

I hope I've given your some fun ideas on how to use some of the new products from this Fabulous release! Don't forget to check out Simon's blog tomorrow for day 2 of the hop. Thank you so much for stopping by!

MY CARDS: All products used are listed below in the compensated affiliate links, at no extra cost to you.
My first card showcases the adorable octopus from the Tenta-Cuddles stamp set. I love how he's hugging his sweet, little fish friend! I used Copic markers to color the images and Distress Oxide Inks for the background.


Next up is a stencil called, Starburst. I used bright yellow and orange to create a fun, celebratory card.


And who doesn't love Simon's filigree dies?! They've got this beautiful new one called, Filigree Message Rounded Rectangle. I used all the colors of the rainbow to create a simple but pretty effect. And the sentiment is from the new, Happy Reverse Sentiment Strips.


This next card showcases the fabulous Chunky Love You die set. It's big and bold and fabulous. I felt it needed an equally fabulous background, so I used some purple and blue Alcohol Inks to create one. The other sentiments are again from the Happy Reverse Sentiment Strips.



And last but not least is the Be a Mermaid stamp set. This set is so fun! It includes a couple of mermaid tails, bubbles, a few shells, waves and fun sentiments too, to help you create some wonderful scenes!

Okay, that's it for me. I hope I've given your some fun ideas on how to use some of the new products from this awesome release! Don't forget to check out Simon's blog tomorrow for day 2 of the hop! Thank you so much for stopping by!
