Lastly, Timeless Tulips (an exclusive retreat collection from July) will be available along with this release!

Endless Ambition Collection
I had a BLAST creating with this release! Take a look:
Curtain Leaves Cover Die
Sweet Sentiments Hot Foil Plate Set 
Sweet Sentiments Die Set 

Stacking THREE layers of the Curtain Leaves Cover Die, slightly off-set, created a unique textured background for the sentiment. Which was not a perfect hot foil due to a wee bit of a jump of the plate in my machine. If you look closely at the Sweet Sentiments THANKS, there is a double, or stuttering of the foil line. I thought it looked FUN!!
Sweet Sentiments Hot Foil Plate & Die Bundle 

Dreamy Feathers Die Set 

I have couple of mixed media artsy looking cards using the Dreamy Feathers Die Set.
Lacy Tile Stencil



Layered Ornate Frame Die Set
Putting together these small blooms in Layered Ornate Frame Die Set, reminded me of playing with paper dolls as a child. VERY RELAXING! 
I followed the layering guide to help me decide what colors needed to be on each die cut layer, using the Watercolor Brush Markers. As all the die cut pieces were saturated with color, I took several 110# cardstock (A2 size) and smoooshed them over the top to help speed up the drying process...PLUS I got several BOUNS COOL cardfronts for future projects! YOU can see how I used one of them later in this post :)
Watercolor Brush Markers


Flower Wreath Hot Foil Plate
Flower Wreath Simple Coloring Stencil Set (2 in 1) 
For this one, I dry embossed the Flower Wreath HOT FOIL PLATE onto thick cardstock and used the GOLD GEL PEN to draw in the gold lines. Then I used the stencil to quickly color in the Flower Wreath.


Flowery Bouquet Hot Foil Plate 
Flowery Bouquet Simple Coloring Stencil Set (3 in 1) 
The Flowery Bouquet HFP and STENCIL is so LOVELY!  I added a few marker coloring details after quickly inking through he stencils.
Hot Foil Roll - Brushed Gold

ALL the celebrations for a glittery Word Balloons Die cut! SO quick and easy popped onto a festive background.
