For my first card I used the Delicate Primrose stamp set along with the Delicate Primrose dies, Verdant Walk Paper pad, sentiment from the Ruffled Flowers, frame die from the New Day Card Kit and the Snowing stamp.



For my 2nd. card, I used the same Delicate Primrose stamp set but only used the last layer to create this abstract look and watercolors. I also used the Label Love stamp set for the sentiment. I just love love the effect on this one.



or my 3rd. card I went for a mixed media look. I used another new stamp Ruffled Flowers and the Ruffled Flowers dies along with the Celestial Paper Pack and the sentiment is from Wispy Begonia stamp set.



Hope you still are enjoying the release...I couldn't stop creating. For the next card, I used the same Ruffled Flowers stamp set embossed using the Rose Gold embossing powder onto a black cardstock and this time, I colored the images using Caran D'Ache gouache paints. 



I was having so much fun  and the products are so versatile, I decided to make a TN page instead of a card. My starting point was this GORGEOUS mega Love die, Mega Greetings 3 stamps and the Bed of Roses stamps :) I also used the leaves from the Delicate Primrose stamp set with the Delicate Primrose die. Other than these, I used the Celestial Paper Pack, hearts from the Love Letters stamp set. I also used some of the previous release products: Creative Edges: Lace die, Sketched Lines Stencil, Sweet Friend Stamp set.
