Here are a few cards I've created with this fantastic new set.

What a great set this many combinations to create with.  I put the beta in this bowl and colored with Copic Markers.  

 I heat embossed this card on vellum with white embossing powder and colored it on the reverse side with Copic Markers.  I then mounted it on a soft blue layer of cs trimmed just 1/8" larger than the vellum panel.  

For this card, I stamped the jar on vellum, fussy cut the image after coloring it with Copic Markers.  I took some pink Distress Stickles spread it on the back side of the image with my finger.  I then bent or bowed the jar to look dimensional and layered it against the die cut panel.  I then stamped the sentiment with VersaMark and sprinkled silver ep on it and heat embossed it.  I cut it out using a label die from Spellbinders.  Add some embellishments and there you have it.  

Thanks for sticking it out for my long description.....good luck and thanks for hopping with us.  

Here is the order of the hop.  What until you see what all these talented Rock Stars have created with this awesome set of stamps.
