Hello crafty friends and welcome back to my blog!

Today I am so excited to share my dear friend Varada’s new August digital stamp release!! ** This link will take you to the shop with all digital images available **

This release is truly full of beautiful images and for today’s card I have combined 3 sets from the release on my card πŸ™‚

To find the details for the giveaway please scroll to the bottom of the post.

I was a bit short on time to create several cards I would normally make, so I decided to use images from 3 new sets – Pretty Poppies, Blushing Blooms and Beautiful Butterflies.

After downloading the images to my computer I used Power Point to arrange them in a cluster and size them for the A2 card size.

I printed the final image on Neenah Solar White Classic Crest cardstock and die cut the panel with stitched rectangle die.

I colored the images with Copic markers, added splatter around the image, then backed the panel with black cardstock to give it thin black frame.

Sentiments are preprinted strips from Simon Says stamp, makes finishing the card a lot faster πŸ˜‰ I embellished with clear sequins.

To celebrate this release, we are giving away THE ENTIRE RELEASE to one lucky blog reader – selected at EACH STOP in the hop. Giveaway closes on Sunday, August 16th, 11:59 pm CDT. The winner will be announced in the blog hop post the following Tuesday.

    The link for the silver membership isn’t working for me. Thought I would let you know. I will try from one of the other hops.
