Welcome to our first day of introductions for the March 2020 Release! Today’s new stamps and dies in this month’s collections are all about Spring! So, let’s get going to and preview the new must-have stamps and dies.
Beautiful Bouquet Stamps + Dies
I focused on a smaller bouquet option (from the same set) for my second card and am highlighting a wonderful new set of dies called Love to Layer: Notched Dies. I used all three sizes and popped up a couple of layers with foam tape to add more dimension. You’ll hear more about the sentiment stamp and “mom” die on a later date, but thought this Beautiful Bouquet Tag Die was perfect for this design! I cut out and layered the “mom” die three times to give more dimension. The background was fun to create by smooshing distress oxide inks onto an acrylic block then “picking up” the ink by tapping watercolor card stock over the block then splattering with a darker color after it was dry.
STAMPS: Beautiful Bouquet, Just Sentiments: Mother’s Day (Ink to Paper).
INK: Milled Lavender, Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, Dusty Concord distress oxide inks (Ranger); Bright Buttercup, Summer Sunrise, Green Parakeet, New Leaf (Papertrey Ink).

DIES: Beautiful Bouquet, Love to Layer: Notched Dies, Beautiful Bouquet Tag Die, “MOM” die from A Mother’s Love (Ink to Paper).
OTHER: Twine, Black Enamel Accents.
I used two ink colors when I stamped most of the images to give a little variegated effect by stamping with the lighter shade and “kissing” the edges with a darker shade. I wanted more definition with the petals, so I used a white gel pen to trace over the fine lines.
