I am so honoured that Beverly contacted me and asked me to be the Guest Designer for this month's release. And I've been having so much fun playing with these new stamp sets and dies - I can't wait for you to see them all! They'll be available for purchase on August 11 and a there's a chance for you to win the entire release!
This flowery background set comes with 5 different flowered backgrounds. I completely fell in love with two of the solid flower background stamps - the posy (my name, not an official one) and the daisy, which I've featured today.
I was intrigued with the way that each stamp is two rows of flowers, offset, so that the ends are angled rather than straight. For the first card, I took advantage of that feature to enable me to make the chevrons out of the posy background. (and oops, you're getting an ahead-of-time sneak peek at another new set there!)
For my second card, I used the posies, a rainbow of colours and a sentiment from the previously released Time set.
Finally, I used the daisy background stamp to create this field by embossing in clear, sponging green over the top and then colouring each centre with a yellow Copic marker. I used another Time sentiment to finish.
There's lots more to see - the whole DT has been working hard to provide you with inspiration of how to use this stamp set for today's blog hop - if you followed the hop, MASKerade is the last stop, but if you haven't been on the hop here are the links:
and August Guest Designer: Ardyth (that's me)!
I'll be back tomorrow with cards made with another new set for this month's release!
