I used this beautiful little butterfly, stamped several times, colored with Copics and cut out. The sentiment is also from the new set. I cut the oval with Nestabilities and sponged while still in the die. I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and White (sponged with Memento inks). The card base is a brand new Pure Luxury color, called Baby Boy Blue. Love this new color!
Next is a fabulous new set from Tami Mayberry, called Fairy Tales. You are going to love the whimsical images in this set!
I used stamped the flower three times, colored with Copics and cut out the flower and leaves. I added Doodlebug glitter to the centers of the flowers. The background was sponged, then stamped with the three flowers. Then I popped up the cut out images, using Pop Dots.
I layered with Pure Luxury Passionate Pink and used another new PL color, Bubblegum Pink, for my cardbase and tied my bow with White Organdy Ribbon.
The next set is one I illustrated, called Sending Sunshine. This set is a medley of spring images that can be used as focal images, or for scene building.
Are you ready for even more inspiration?

To make the daffodil card, I stamped the image, from Sending Sunshine, with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored with Copic markers. I started with Y17 where I wanted the deepest color.
Blended out from the previous color with Y21, then colored a little around the edges of the petals.
Filled in with Y000 then added just a bit more shading with Y17.
For the foliage, I filled in completely with YG07, then used YG93 to add some shading. I used my blender pen to push some highlights back in.
After coloring, I used my oval Nestabilities die to to trace an oval around the image using a pencil, letting the image over-lap the oval in a few places.
Then I cut around the oval, being careful to cut around the image wherever it extended past the oval. Next, I used B00 to add some gentle shading along the outside edges of the image.
For the background panel, I sponged some Memento New Sprout.
Then sponged some Memento Bamboo Leaves. After sponging, I embossed with my Swiss Dots CB folder.
I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and used a Pure Luxury Lemon Drop card base.
Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow to preview two more wonderful new stamp sets. Have a great day!}
