OK here’s what I created with some of the new products:

This is a 3.5 x 8.5″ slimline card.

I inked up the new Freshly Picked stamp set – well the peach and some of the leaves from the set (this set is HUGE with a ton of outline images plus solid images you can stamp if you don’t want to color!) and stamped them onto Distress watercolor paper. I then watercolored them all with Distress Oxide inks. I used the coordinating Freshly Picked Honey Cuts wafer dies to cut them out.

Closeup of card.

The scallop frame and interior rectangle AND the “thanks” sentiment are all from the new Slimline Sentiments Eyelet Honey Cuts die set. I am SO excited for the new slimline wafer dies (really this whole release is amazing) – I am OBSESSED with making slimline cards and I am loving all the new wafer dies coming out for them!

The background was ink blended with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink and splattered with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink. I adhered the die cut sentiment and all the peaches and leaves around a sentiment I stamped from the new Pearfect Sentiments stamp set.

Inside of card.

The inside of the card was finished off with another sentiment from the Pearfect Sentiments stamp set and a couple more peaches and leaves from the Freshly Picked set and that was it!

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