Best Catch and Beautiful Bouquet

I'm always happy to use product from the annual catalog,
because there are some excellent bundles.  Best Catch
(page 150) with the Catch of the Day dies (page 191), is a
great (masculine) bundle.  I love coloring that fish with
Stampin' Blends.  In this example, I created a background
by sponging Coastal Cabana and then stamping the vine
from Beautiful Bouquet.  I spattered a bit of water on the
background to give it a more watery appearance.

Inspiring Iris

I often make blank cards, because they leave things
open-ended when I need to quickly grab a card.
Inspiring Iris, on page 111, is a great set for a card
fitting a variety of situations.  In this case, I sponged
Granny Apple Green on the card base that had been
run through the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.
For the focal image, I layer in the Iris over sponged
ink, silver foil and Polka Dot Tulle.

#loveitchopit with Good Morning Magnolia

Kylie Bertucci has come up with a wonderful,
#loveitchopit strip technique that is presented Here.
It makes use of scraps, and is very forgiving in terms of 
gluing the strips of Cardstock or DSP down.
In this example, I used Granny Smith Green, Calypso Coral,
Poppy Parade, Blackberry Bliss and Peaceful Poppies
DSP (Jan-June 2020 page 25).  The sentiment comes from the 
Good Morning Magnolia Stamp set (annual page 38) and was
cut out with the Stitched Rectangles dies on page 196.
