ODBD July New Release

Good morning!

I'm so excited about the new July release!!  FLOWERS!!
I love beautiful flower stamps but there's more, beside the gorgeous flowers are new decorative oval die sets!!!  Each set has 5 dies and every one of them is just amazing!!
Come hop along with us to see all the beautiful creations!

My first card is the Coneflower (in my part of the U.S. the colors are generally yellow and orange).


I used the new stamp set called Forever Friends for this card along with the Layered Lacey Ovals die set, the Filigree Frames, Ovals and The Ornate Borders and Flowers (corners).  Also added: Embossing folder, ribbon (seam binding), pearls, Stickles and foam tape.
I stamped on white, colored then cut out using the "out of the box" technique (both cards were done this way).  I popped up the blue oval layer.
Stickles was added to the flower centers to add a bit of dimension.


My next card  is the Gladiolus from the new stamp set, You Bless Me

I went on line to find colors for these flowers and wow, they come in a LOT of different colors.  Some are solid color and others are two toned like this one I colored, but all are beautiful!!
The dies I used on this card are the new Ornate Ovals, and favorites Lavish Layers, Pierced Rectangles and  Double Stitched Rectangles.
I started out the same way with this image, stamping and die cutting using the "out of the box" technique and colored with Copic Markers.  On the second layer, I left the die on while I stenciled pink ink through the openings and onto the center so that it would show through my image layer edges.  I added some pink layers and lots of foam tape to pop up several layers.
I finished by adding ribbon and some pink acrylic baubles to each corner.
Also added to the flower centers is some yellow Prills (US Artquest).
