Here is my card featuring these FANTASTIC stamps and dies!



I stamped the flowers and sentiment with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder. Next I watercolored the images with Distress inks. And added a few sequins and some twine.

My next card was done the same way except with white embossing powder and pastel colors!





I love, love, love these flower stamps and the amazing dies!!!
 I am sure I will be using them a WHOLE  lot!!!!
