We also have a special priced May Release Bundle that's only available for this weekend only.

Here's what I've created for you...

I created my first card using images from the new "Prickly" stamp set.  I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and watercolored my images and the background too.  I cut my background out using "Fancy Frames Dies".  My sentiment is from the "This and That" stamp set.  I adhered some sequins from the "Skyfall" and "Comet" collections.

For my second card I again used the "Fancy Frames Dies" to cut out my background.  I used several distress inks and blended them to create my background color.  I stamped, colored and fussy cut my images using the new "Build A Scene 2" stamp set.  I popped my little bee up on some foam tape.  I added sequins from the "Skyfall" collection.  My sentiment is from the "Say It Big" stamp set.
