Valentine-Faeries-One
Not only are there loads of new dies in the shop (think everything you need for Spring.. flowers, bunnies, hearts), but there's also a new stamp set with coordinating dies.  This set is called Valentine Fairies! 
Valentine-Faeries-Three
I started my card with a simple watercolor panel.  I left a bit of room at the bottom to stamp a sentiment. 
Valentine-Faeries-Five
I inked up the fairies with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with Copic Markers.
Valentine-Faeries-Two
The coordinating die set makes them easy to cut and arrange as  you like.   Don't you love them?    I think they'd make wonderful cards for your favorite princess!

I'm featuring the very beautiful, Country Rose Corner. Isn't it divine? A few tips on creating a card using this die.

I used my Scor-Buddy to score vertical lines on both sides of the card base.

Pointed Oval Frames provided a frame for next step, watercoloring a stamped bloom from Peony Stems and Blossoms.

I kept my rose dies intact, and added fronds from 2 further die cuts, slightly inked.

Blog Blitz Spring Bouquet!
by Jennifer Svare

GinghamSpringCard3_Watermark

Hello!  Today I'll share a few ways I used the Garden Bouquet and Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frames to create these fun cards!  I just love using scalloped edges and they are especially perfect for spring cards (although I use them all year round). 

Spring Card 2 Watermark

I used different inlay and overlay techniques to create different levels of layers for some dimension throughout the flowers, and the Gotta Have Gingham by Lawn Fawn was used for the backgrounds in different colors. 

Glossy Accents was used on one of the cards to show how that might look. 

How would you like to win the Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frames?  Leave a comment on this post for your chance to win this awesome set of frame dies! 

I hope you have a great day!
