Jen Carter Gold Butterfly Sympathy wm

My favorite set from this release is the new Inky Flowers Stamp set.  When I first got this set it reminded me of butterflies so for this first card I wanted to use the flowers that way.  I embossed the images from the stamp set on watercolor paper that I had die cut with one of the new Dual Dotted Ovals die.  These dotted dies are so much fun!  I then water colored the butterflies.

To make the butterflies have a little dimension (and this was very hard to photograph), I used a knife to cut around one side of the wings on the largest butterfly and on the pink butterfly next to it.  Both of these butterflies pop off of the paper.  It looks really cool in real life, but like I said, it was very hard to capture in my photos.

The gold sentiment was cut with the new With Sympathy Word die.  The neat thing about this die is that the stamp set Inky Flowers has words that you can insert in the space between the "with" & "sympathy" so you can change your sentiment up if you'd like.

Jen Carter Ombre Tag Gratitude wm

For my 2nd card, I used the Inky Flowers set in the way it was intended, as flowers.  I stamped the cluster on one of the new Dotted Tags dies and then watercolored the images. I think that tag die set will be getting a lot of use!  I stamped the sentiment with ombre inks and love how that turned out!

This new cover plate die called Cover Up: Diamond Lace is my favorite yet!  I have been so anxious to use this die ever since we got it several months ago!  I especially love how it looks on the Dip Dyed Ombre Papers!
