Monday Mystery Stamping in the Meadow Featuring Boughs & Blossoms Bundle.

   Have you seen the Boughs and Blossoms stamp set on page 26 in the Jan-June 2022 Mini Catalog?  The punch has two distinct foliages to punch.  One looks like a leafy stem and the other looks like a sprig of small flowers - Baby's Breath maybe?  From my days working in the florist's shop it looks like Baby's Breath to me.  Along with the punch the stamp set has sweet sentiments, flowers and foliage images.  This set was at the top of my wishlist and it's a beauty! 

I featured this set in mystery stamping tonight, and here are the cards I made:

This card design has a slant across the front that calls for something to highlight it, and i chose to se foliage and flowers. 

Here's the card in with Pale Papaya Flowers:

Waterfall Card With Awesome Otters Stamp Set

Have you seen the Awesome Otters stamp set?  It's so cute!! This waterfall card shows all of those cuties  in the set. One is featured on each of the waterfall flaps!  What's even better is this is a FREE product with a $50.00 order.

I've paired it with the Simply Marbelous designer series paper, which is another FREE product!  This paper features gorgeous marbled swirls of over 12 different colors so you will be able to use it with lots of different card stock.  I've used the Balmy Blue and Flirty Flamingo colors for the waterfall cards.

Kylie's International Blog Hop

This month's customer thank you card is made with the new Amazing Sillhouettes stamp set and Amazing Thanks Dies shown on page 40 of the January-June Mini Catalog. They are both beautiful and if you purchase them together as a bundle you will save 10%.

I used the Stamp-a-ratus to stamp the tree image in Soft Succulent Ink onto the Heart and Home Designer Series Paper.  I stamped it twice to get a nice dark image. All of the Heart and Home dsp has a wood look on one side and floral print on the other. It is mouth-watering dsp! You can see I used two different wood patterns.

I then used the Amazing Thanks dies to die cut the "thanks," - one for the larger background image in basic black and one in Basic White to layer onto the black card stock.  This makes the white stand out and gives it some depth.

The other dies in this set are "you," "are," and "amazing."

I love the water color look this stamp creates.
