My New Die Set!

What a lovely Sunday afternoon! Sunny and clear...a bit chilly yet, but still a fine day for a walk.
Sadly, I had to make several sympathy cards recently. Have to put 3 more in the mail tomorrow. And because I'm mailing them I decided to take it easy on the bling!

This one shows off my newest die set which was purchased at an outlet store that sometimes get prototypes of items not yet on the I don't even know what the set is called but I'm pretty sure it is from Spellbinders. I love that it is a true rectangle with alot of delicate detail just around the edges. And there are 2 "tag" dies as well as a medium size rectangle. The 2 stamps are from SweetStamps: "With Sympathy" & "Art Nouveau Vertical Border". The floral image was colored with a variety of alcohol markers: Spectrum Noir, Memento, MEPXY.

I stamped the image & sentiment in Memento "Bamboo Leaves".
Added Stickles "Icicle" for a bit of sparkle.


Thanks for stopping by today! Please leave a comment so I can come visit your blog too!
