Let me first showcase my creations. I had so much fun playing with the new dies :)

For my first card I decided to make a baby card using the Shaker Balloon #2 Star dies. I used a blue patterned paper along with the neutral card stock to make my shaker. For the string I added some die cut circles (using ATC Tag Builder) and colored these with my Spectrum Noir Markers. To finish the card I assembled it all along with the Congrats word die after heat embossing the sentiment (from the Baby Bump set).
Here is a little closeup :) 

My second is a Thank you card, here I die cut a leaf from the die cut gift box for my focal image. On a kraft card stock I stamped the twig and leaves and berries in white ink and colored those with pencil colors. To finish the card I stamped the sentiment. I have used Gift Builder #1, Frames and Flowers, Friends and Flowers for sentiment and Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies
Coloring with Prisma color pencils is fun and I like how versatile my Frames and flowers set can be :) Here is a closeup. I used some wink of stella on the gift box. I couldn't capture it so well on camera.

For my third card I used the cupcake die in a unique way to make my floral basket. This one is pure assemblage of die cuts and a little inking :) I have used Friends and Flowers for sentiment. Cupcake Builder #1, Shaker Balloons #3 Oval, Shaker Balloons #1 Heart, Clustered Hearts Dies, Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies and Trendy Spring Bloom Dies


Now to my final creation, this is simple stamping and coloring with Markers. The card panel is inked with distress inks :) I am showcasing the Blossom Sprays #1 in my floral cluster series :) For the sentiment I have used
Here are a couple of closeups! There will soon be another post where I will share cards using all of my Blossom series :) I am pretty excited about that one. You will see a lot of styles we can do with these :)

This months Photo is the fabulous red cake, so fun. Let's see how you will interpret it! I had so much fun with this new challenge.
Here is the card, I created inspired by colors and the intricate baskets :)
I took a watercolor panel and stamped my balloon images with distress inks multiple times by masking, I did water coloring over these stamped images and the background. Once dried I stamped the strings and the sentiment. I also did some inlaid die cutting with the Birthday word die. to match the intricate baskets I added a strip of patterned paper under the water colored panel. I have used Kathryn's Big Wishes stamp set and  Birthday Word die. I used Gansai Tambi Watercolors. I also added Wink of Stella to make the balloons shine :)
