My first card for today's hop uses a fun combination of new products! To begin, stamped the sentiments from the Hugs and Good Vibes Stamp Set. This sweet sentiment is just the cutest thing ever, if I do say so myself! It is perfect to send to out as we are social distancing and wishing we could give hugs! I die cut the amazing new Color Block Rainbow Die out of white cardstock and then used the Pinkfresh Studio Ink Pads to color each of the "rays" of the rainbow! I used foam squares to add them to the white outline that is adhered to the white panel using liquid glue.
I'm completely in love with the new Modern Layered Floral Stamp Set and knew it would be the perfect accent for my rainbow! I die cut it using the Modern Layered Floral Die and then stamped it using my Mini MISTI. I layered it sideways on the rainbow panel and then snipped the excess off using my paper trimmer for a nice, straight edge.


I used a post it note to cover up the sentiment portion and then added some black paint splatter using a fine tip paintbrush. I spritzed the entire panel with Shimmer Spray for some sparkle and shine!

I also added a few Essentials Jewels to both the rainbow and a few of the flowers. I layered the entire rainbow focal panel onto a top folding black card base using foam squares for added dimension.

I'm loving the rainbows, hugs, and flower combination, so I used it again on my next design, but in a different way!

For this card, I used the AMAZING new Chevron Background stamp. This is a red rubber cling mount stamp and has removable pieces so you can stamp it in many colors easily. To begin, I placed the entire background into my mini MISTI and then removed the outer frame edge. This part is not needed for the design, so I removed it for ease in stamping.

Once I had it all placed, I removed everything but the smallest chevron on the bottom. I stamped that and then placed the next piece. Once that was in position, I removed the smallest piece and then stamped the next piece. I continued on like that until I reached the top portion where it splits off into two difference sections (the blue portion). The thing I like about these stamps is that they have very tiny perforations where you split the pieces apart for each section. This leaves a guide so to speak so you can line everything up properly.

Once the stamping was done, I die cut the entire panel using the Essentials Fancy Diagonal Stripes Die Collection. I love how it gives it just the right amount of extra detail! Once that was done, I heat embossed the large sentiment from the Hugs and Good Vibes Stamp Set onto a strip of vellum using white detail embossing powder. I wrapped it around the stamped panel and secured it to the back using clear tape.
I added some of the fun flowers from the previously released Simple Blossoms stamp set here and there for some added interest.  The entire panel is layered onto a top folding A2 card base using foam squares and a few jewels finish this rainbow design!

My third and final project for today is a trio of tags using the new Believe in Yourself Stamp Set with the coordinating Believe in Yourself Die

If you visit my blog regularly, then you'll know that I've been preparing some baskets for May Day tomorrow! These little tags are the perfect accent to add to the baskets.
I bought some tea towels to place in the bottom of the baskets and this floral design reminds me of the pattern. This floral cluster also has solid images to stamp inside of the outline and has a kind of "textile" feel to it which will be perfect to accent the towels.

Each tag is die cut using the Essentials Classic Tags with Fillable Elements and then I added  some inkblending around the edges using ink and a blender brush. I also added some ink splatter to them for some added detail and interest.

The sentiment, which is from the new Simply Sentiments Hello stamp set, is the perfect addition for these tags and says just the right thing! The finishing touch is one of the new Artistic Bows which I am in love with! I can't wait to experiment with them more! 
I had so much fun creating all of these projects for today! Don't forget to leave a comment to be eligible to win a gift certificate! Thanks for fluttering by!

Love your soft, pastel coloring.
The tags are a funtastic idea.
I was thinking they would be
fun to hang on a neighbors
door as a pick-me-up but I
guess that's not really
feasible in these times.
Maybe when things get settled
more. thanks for sharing
