    Great cards- thanks for the video! Love the color combination too, though it is something I would not normally choose. Looks like we now need dies for the 2 pre-assembled elements in Lovely Layers!

    Great cards and video. I just got this stamp set, and I played along with your video as a tutorial of how to use the different layers. Now that I have some prototypes, I can start exploring different sizes and colors of layering on my own. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I loved these cards – can you tell me which stamp sets and dies were used to make the embellishments? I would love to order them but am a bit confused about what exactly you used.

    These cards are so full of best wishes we are usually try to express with words!
    The colors are great and the design is fascinating. The red and green one is totally the cutest card I’ve ever seen:)
