Serene Garden with Dandelion Wishes

I enjoy the Serene Garden set, with coordinating
Garden Scene Framelits Dies (page 166 and 217).
You can texture your card stock with the background
die from the Framelits, to create a beautiful backdrop
for flowers and sentiments.  And that little butterfly
always helps to accessorize the sentiment
(from Dandelion Wishes).

Here is more information on the embossing mats

Dandelion Well Wishes with Tulle

Dandelion Wishes, on page 118 is a lovely set!
It works well for weddings, as well as illness. 
It pairs particularly well with the Tulle Ribbon on page 200,
given the whimsical look of both products.

It's no surprise that I ued one of my favorite color
combinations; Mint Macaron and Highland Heather.
I just can't get enough of this combination!!

Wonderful Moments Birthday

I bought Wonderful Moments, on page 136, because it
does such a nice job of covering important events
(pregnancy, birth, wedding, friendships) with elegance.
This set also enables a host of techniques, including embossing,
sponging, watercoloring, coloring with Stampin' Blends...
you name it.  It is straightforward coloring and layering.

In this example I used ink pads and aqua painter to paint
my favorite new colors; Poppy Parade and Mango Melody.
I just can't put these colors down because they are so
rich and warm.
