I had the opportunity to work with a variety of products from this release, and I made two cards for today’s blog hop. Keep on reading till the end for additional blog hop details and giveaway.

For my first card I used the Filigree Flower wafer die. I took a panel of A2 sized white cardstock and die cut it multiple times using the die. Using the Sherbet Assortment cardstock, I filled in the empty spaces in the flower die.

Using the Raspberry cardstock as layering cardstock, I adhered the panel onto a top folding A2 sized fog card base. I added a thanks die cut sentiment, with Raspberry cardstock base and white cardstock for the word thanks.

That finished off my first card.

For my second card, I used the Hexagon Element wafer die. I took a panel of Bristol smooth cardstock and using my distress oxides I did some ink blending. I used Seedless Preserves, Wild Honey and Carved Pumpkin.

I created a shaker window using some acetate. I took a panel of white cardstock and trimmed it down using the wonky rectangles die. Then using the Hexagon Elements wafer die I die cut in the center. The die cut piece I gold heat embossed it and the gap in between, I layered it with acetate and added some shaker sequins.

I die cut the sentiment using Love You wafer die with white and purple and stuck it on top of the Hexagon Element panel. I adhered the entire panel on an A2 sized top folding white card base. That’s all for this card.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you find some inspiration!
