=====================================================================
Today we have some essentials for you including our first stamp collaboration!

In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet with Joni Andaya is a set with versatile and stylish smaller blooms, leaves and containers a la Joni!  Layering options are unique and endless with this set.  This is a must-have stamp set for anyone who loves flowers!  Be sure to check out Joni's blog throughout our Release Week for more inspiration with In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet with Joni Andaya!

We are adding to our Essentials line with Essentials: Audrey Cutaways.  These are cutaways (dies) that can be used to layer in your crafting project or each used alone.  We named it Audrey after the timelessly elegant and feminine Audrey Hepburn.   There is a small pierced hole detail on several of the larger layering dies that is elegant without being fussy...a true classic!

Our next series of cutaways to introduce is additions to the In a Word series which happen to all be the same length.  We are coming out with four (4) more this release: In a Word: Friend Cutaway + In a Word: Hello Cutaway + In a Word: Hi Cutaway and In a Word: Hugs Cutaway.  These dies are so fun and versatile that they will go with any style of crafting and since they are a bit chunkier than our The Big, the Bold series they would be ideal for some shaker projects too. :-)

It is such a pleasure to be creating with In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet with Joni Andaya!  Julie and I were so happy to work with Joni to bring a big set of layering flowers and this set is like a garden crammed with glorious blooms!

Card 1

shay_1

I went very simple with this card.  I love the bottle image that you can add a flower to.  I stamped the bottle in weathered wood Tim Holtz Distress Ink and then colored it in with a waterbrush and the same ink.  I stamped the stem (line) in mowed lawn and pine needles Tim Holtz Distress Inks and layered the flower using picked raspberry and spun sugar Tim Holtz Distress Inks and the leaves in the same greens as the stem.  On the longer tiny tag in Essentials: Audrey Cutaways I stamped in weathered wood "for you" from The Big, the Bold, and the Happy and added some twine to the tag and added the tag using dimensional foam adhesive.  Last I added a grey strip with the xoxo border cut out of it from Essentials: Audrey Cutaways.  Honestly, I have fallen for Essentials: Audrey Cutaways just as much as I did for Essentials: Katharine Cutaways.  These are powerhouse die sets.

Card 2

shay_2

I love making my own backgrounds and In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet with Joni Andaya is perfect for this (so perfect I made another pattern for my last card).  On the smaller layer from Essentials: Katharine Cutaways cut from white cardstock, I stamped the three solid roses in squeezed lemonade, dried marigold and picked raspberry Tim Holtz Distress Inks and then overstamped the rose details in lemon zest, orange county and flamingo Color Theory inks by Studio Calico.  Then I used the sketchy larger circle and stamped that in black for contrast.

I die cut In a Word: Hello Cutaway 3 times in fuchsia, yellow-orange and black cardstocks and attached them slightly off for a shadow look.  I attached them to the floral panel using foam dimensional adhesive.  I added the largest heart from Essentials: Audrey Cutaways to the hello.

I attached the floral panel to a panel cut with the larger scalloped layer from Essentials: Audrey Cutaways and then attached it all to a black card base.

Card 3

shay_3

I just couldn't stop making backgrounds so using picked raspberry, festive berry and pine needles Tim Holtz Distress Inks, bermuda bay and pink pirouette Stampin' Up! inks and lemon zest Color Theory ink by Studio Calico I stamped a very fun and busy pattern on the smaller panel from Essentials: Katharine Cutaways cut from white cardstock.  Does it have a retro look to you too?  I adhered it to a white scallop panel cut using the larger layer from Essentials: Audrey Cutaways and then adhered it all to a teal A2 card base.

I cut out In a Word: Hugs Cutaway from white cardstock 5 times and adhered them all together for more weight and dimension.  I cut out the banner from The Big, the Bold and Extras Cutaways (more on that tomorrow) from white cardstock, stamped the sentiments using bermuda bay from The Big, the Bold and Friends and then colored it in with squeezed lemonade Distress Ink and lemon zest.  I adhered the hugs to the floral panel and banner using dimensional foam adhesive.

That's it from me today so now it's time for the showstoppers from our guests and Talent!
