This month's New Stamp Set Releases are


Relax A Bit Featured February 14

Blessings Featured February 16
Dogwood Blossoms Featured February 17






I stamped the teacup image onto white card stock using London Fog Memento ink and colored with Copic markers before cutting out and popping up. The card front is embossed with Thank You Set 5 and the sentiment stamped with Rose Red ink. I cut slits in the card front to weave the ribbon and then tied the bow.

For this one, I stamped the teapot onto white card stock and colored the image with Coic markers, then cut out and mounted onto the white Swiss Dot panel which is mounted onto the blue. I punched the top of the panel and added a ribbon. The sentiment is stamped onto the white card stock and it was cut/embossed/stenciled with Spellbinders Labels Three. The front of the card is embossed with Sizzix Corner Damask.
