I encourage you to check them out and add your own cards/projects as well! 

MY CARDS:

First up is a card I created using the adorable, little stamp set called, Pot o' Gold. I did not have the coordinating dies but the pot is so easy to fussy cut. I did a little Copic coloring and added a bit of sparkle on the pieces of gold to give it some shimmer. The sentiment is from the new, Lucky You die set.



Up next is the Topography cling stamp. This is such a cool stamp! I white embossed it and used the ink smooshing technique, with some pretty Distress Ink colors, for an emboss resist effect. So simple to do! The sentiment is from an older release.



I used two, new products for my third and final card. The Bunny Trail stamp set is so adorable! I colored the image with Copics and fussy cut it out to add to the background, which was created using the Hippity Hoppity stencil. So fun!



That's it for me. I hope I've given you a few ideas for creating with some of the products from this fabulous release! Thanks so much for stopping by!
