Tons of inspiration is being shared from all these amazing people – so worth checking out! Don’t forget there’s GIVEAWAYS as well!

As always I had the hardest time deciding on what to create with first. This release is just awesome! As is true to form with me though I can’t resist a good floral set – so I inked up the new Farm Fresh Flowers set to make my card:

Hello Friend Card with Farm Fresh Flowers

I stamped the flowers and milk jog from the Farm Fresh Flowers set onto Distress water-colour paper then watercolored them in with Prima Classics and Prima Pastel Dreams water-colours. Once dry I used the coordinating Farm Fresh Flowers Honey Cuts dies to cut them out.

Closeup of Hello Friend Card with Farm Fresh Flowers

I white heat embossed the new Buffalo Plaid background stamp onto another piece of Distress water-colour paper, then blended Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide ink over it. I used one of my all-time favourite Scallop A2 Card Frames Honey Cuts die to die cut it. I blended more of the Cracked Pistachio ink onto a piece of the card stock then die cut it with the new Friend Honey Cuts die. I stacked it with more die cut card stock before adhering it to my card.

Inside of Hello Friend Card with Farm Fresh Flowers

On the inside of the card I stamped the flower cluster from the Farm Fresh Flowers set with the Cracked Pistachio ink. I added a sentiment from the new Friend stamp set stamped with black ink and that finished off my card!

To see how this card came together check out my video below:
