Okay, I have two projects to share with you so let's get started! My first project features the Hello with Botanicals Standalone Cuts:


I die cut felt for some awesome texture.  Gold Glitter Cardstock?!  Yes Please!  The vellum botanicals gives it even more texture and dimension, don't you agree?


The side strip has been stamped in two different shades of purple with the new Aviary stamp set. 


I love texture in my cards, this is a great way to add it without the additional bulk when mailing.

Here's a question, when you think of the song Hello, who do you think of Adele or Lionel Richie? My answer definitely shows my age...LOL.

Next up is a project that uses the new Fruitastic set:

You're Sweet
inside & out


I could easily be a fruitarian...love the stuff in real life and as a crafter. I decided to work with those sweet strawberries in a free form style.


I stamped the stems and the fruit with water reactive ink. With the strawberry image, I lightly moved around the color with a wet paintbrush.


I splattered black watercolor on the yellow panel from the Let your Heart Decide 6x6. The sentiment has been stamped and heat embossed in white on a black strip of cardstock. I was able to find a coordinating cardstock that I had in my stash for the green frame.

Next up is my teamie Isha Gupta, I can't wait to see what she has designed for today! If you get lost along the way, here is the complete hop listing:
