card 1

In this card I used the Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover Die( ALTN | SSS ) for the background. I love that it gives details and texture but keep everything subtle! The lovely flower is from the new Delicate Clusters Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS ).

card 2

For the next two cards I used the Dare to Dream Stamp Set ( ALTN | SSS ). I love those tiles and you can play with them to create different combinations both in terms of design and color combos.

In this card I also used the new Antique Gold Pigment Ink ( ALTN | SSS ) and you can see how shiny it is in the close up photo below!

card 3

And here is one card using the same stamps in a more simple way.

card 4

Finally here is my last card for today in a very romantic design. The flower was cut using the Fine Bouquet Die ( ALTN | SSS ) and the sentiment is from the Fancy Greetings Stamp Set ( ALTN | SSS ).
