For my first card, I decided to go for a mixed media look using mix of products. I used the Handpicked Bouquet stamp, embossed the floral sprig using Rose Gold embossing powder onto vellum and colored using Alcohol markers.  and Handpicked Bouquet die to create the focal point for my card, I used Wild Ferns stamp set to stamp on the background.  The sentiment is from the Engraved Flowers stamp set. Other than this I also used the Creative Edges: Lace die, Sketched Lines Stencil, pattern paper and enamel dots from the New Day Card Kit. I used  Silver Stone ink and the Rose Gold embossing powder


My next card is using the GORGEOUS Leaf Medallion Die. This die has 2 pieces. For my card, I used both the dies. I started by creating a background using Tim Holtz alcohol inks, I then die-cut the Leaf Medallion Die and applied some Rose Gold and Gina K Hop Pink foil to parts of it. I really love the effect and have been using this technique for many cards :) The sweet sentiment is from another new stamp "Kind Confetti"

 

Next, I decided to show you two cards using the same stamp but different techniques and looks. Since the Tim Holtz alcohol inks were out, I decided to use them with the WONDERFUL layering stamp "Wild Ferns".
I created the background using alcohol ink and applied some Rose Gold foil to it. I then stamped the 1st. layer of the fern image using Alcohol lift ink and transfer this to a neenah white card stock, so I will be getting 2 cards actually. 
Once, I removed ink from the first panel, I was left with a ghost image of the fern onto the alcohol inked panel. I stamped the last layer from the same fern over the first layer to give some definition to the image. I then die-cut the word HUGS from Script Words Die, stacked it 3 times and adhered it to the panel. The words "sending lots of" is from the Heart Flowers Stamp set.



Now the white panel, which I used to transfer the image to while using the Alcohol lift ink is the start of the 2nd. card. I stamped the 3rd. layer of the same fern using Aqualicious ink. I then stamped some other fern images to this card using Altenew Razzelberry ink and some Delicata gold ink. I then die-cut the word "LOVE" from the Script Words Die, stacked and adhered it to the card.



Fun isn't it!!!
Now to my last card...there are so many ideas going on in my head but I decided to go for a no-line watercolor card. This is one of my favourite techniques. I used the Engraved Flowers stamp set along with the Kind Confetti stamp set. See its so easy to mix and match various stamps :)
