I've got two cards to share with you today using each of the new sets being released today! They are both so beautiful and I had so much fun creating with them! Up first is the blue floral card using a lot of my current favorite things!

I've really been on an emboss resist kick lately, especially with the beautiful background stamps from Pinkfresh Studio! For this card, I heat embossed the Enchanted Blooms background stamp onto a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inch panel of white cardstock using white detail embossing powder. Once that was done, I added some Ocean Breeze and Mermaid Cove ink using a blender brush. 

I die cut the Simply Hexagons die four times out of heavyweight white cardstock and glued them together using liquid glue. I adhered it to the top of the embossed panel using additional liquid glue. I set that aside and got to work on the beautiful flowers!

I stamped the flower from the new Celebrate Today stamp set with black ink and then colored the image using an assortment of alcohol markers in bright, summery colors!

I used the coordinating Celebrate Today die to cut it out. I used stacked foam squares to adhere it to the embossed background for optimal dimension!

This gorgeous stamp set comes with some fun sentiment options! I chose to pair the "celebrate" sentiment with the "this is totally worth celebrating" sentiment. I just love it and it works for so many different occasions. It's perfect to add to your stash for either a wedding, graduation, birthday, accomplishment, or milestone!

Both sentiments are heat embossed in gold with the "celebrate" being embossed onto a strip of lightweight vellum. The other one is just embossed onto a strip of white cardstock and then popped up with foam squares underneath the strip of vellum!

I added some colorful Essentials Jewels here and there on the background and flowers. I used matching colors to give the card some extra sparkle and detail.

I like to use varying sizes of jewels here and there to give the card balance. This was such a fun card to work on and such a gorgeous floral image to color!

My second card is bursting with summer cheer! Once again, I heat embossed the Enchanted Blooms background stamp and then added two different colors of ink for a colorful background. The lemon/lime colors make me happy!

I die cut the embossed panel using the Essentials Stitched Rectangles and added the panel to a top folding A2 card base using foam squares.

I also added the beautiful Ornate Oval Frame using additional foam squares. It's the perfect frame for the gorgeous flower from the new Celebrate Us stamp set. This is a multi step stamp that is so easy to use with such beautiful results.

I stamped it in black and then added the different colors using each of the different stamps. I love multi step stamping and this one is super easy to use! I used the coordinating Celebrate Us die set to die cut the flower.

I placed it in the middle of the frame using foam squares and then got to work on the sentiments. 
I die cut the "thankful" portion of the sentiment out of black cardstock and the shadow from white cardstock for some nice contrast. I glued them together with liquid glue and popped it up on the flower with some foam squares. The "for you" portion is simply stamped onto a strip of white cardstock using black ink and then added underneath the flower.

A few jewels finish off this colorful design! I had such a fun time creating both of these cards! These are two sets that are hard to put down! Thanks for joining me today and thanks for fluttering by!
