I'm so excited to be introducing some new stamp and die sets today!  'Little Kindness' will have you feeling happy from first sight.  I  created my own background paper to feature the flowers and leaves in the set.

Made all my elements first, including the bg paper, with a tiny 'dot' stamp in another   set called, 'Peony Stems and Blossoms'.  When the stamping and water coloring was done, I gave my bg paper some bling with Mr. Huey's Shine.  1' strip of glitter paper was cut long so I could cut it the length I wanted at the end.

It's so easy to die cut images with Poppy's perfect cut out dies!  I first stamped and watercolored my blooms and leaves, then placed the die over the image, and cut them with my machine.
