Country Flowers Sympathy

I was introduced to the new Country Flowers Stamp set and Country Flowers dies when I was at OnStage in Houston in March.  It is definitely one of the most used stamp sets from the new Annual Catalogue.

Here is a card that we made at one of our evening crafting sessions:

Not only did we get to use the stamp set, we also received some of the new In Colour cardstock which we used on this card!  We were able to play with the new In Colour ink pads too!

Latte Love!

My card class participants are loving the Latte Love Suite and asked me to make 2 cards for our latest class!  One was a previous card that I made for a small event when I was at OnStage in Houston in March,  The other was the card I am sharing today.

The dies are the focal point of my card,  I made the carafe with Silver Foil and used vellum for the glass part.  Of course it has coffee in the carafe!

The inside has a few coffee rings and splatters from the cups of coffee!  A cup for you and a friend!

I have used the items from the Latte Love Suite that is one of our Online Exclusives!  

NEWS FLASH...there will be new Online Exclusives in July!  I will keep you posted!
